The project is a wonderful place for anyone that wants to get in touch with nature and learn about sustainability and agriculture. It's a very relaxed environment where you quickly get to know everybody, both volunteers and permanent workers/people. It's a nice mix of different backgrounds and ages that all have something to teach you. We loved the varied tasks that you get to choose each day and the workshops. You also get a lot of time to relax. There isn't much around the village to do, but that gives you a chance to come down and connect. Thank you Lara, Tavo, Billy, Bri, and everyone 💚

My stay at the project was one of the best experiences I have ever had. The people are so kindhearted, truly amazing people to be around. I gained a lot of knowledge and wisdom from almost everyone there. Definitely connections that will last a lifetime. I will absolutely be coming back. A lot of fun times, both working and in the spare time. I loved the work, it was a great farm experience. A lot of different things to do and learn! They had some amazing lessons/workshops there. The yoga dojo is like a dream. The food is incredible! Overall, it was a healing experience for me! Thank you.

I truly enjoyed my time at the project. It was a special place and I met a lot of special people. I didn't expect to enjoy my time so much. I felt like I got accustomed to the farm and the community very quickly. I loved meeting all the other volunteers and staff and spending our days together, that was the best part of my time. It is the people that make the place special. All the staff were super helpful and kind always and were there for me when I needed any support. Thank you the project <3
