The Experience

El vivero forestal es un proyecto de reforestación en el que nos dedicamos a la producción, transporte, plantación y monitoreo de diferentes especies de árboles forestales. Nuestro propósito es proteger el ecosistema, preservar su biodiversidad y su microclima. Así hemos logrado plantar más de 10 millones de árboles desde 1993 gracias a la colaboración con la Fundación "Forests For Monarchs" y a los voluntarios. *SMS para checar fechas !!!

Maia & Max are two beautiful souls doing incredible and admirable work. I instantly felt a connection with them from the moment they picked me up and am extremely grateful to have met them. The work was fun, varied and well structured. I had a great time learning, being of service as well as giving back to nature. Thank you for a wonderful first experience volunteering and I hope to come back again in the future!

The work was diverse and touched upon the whole lifecycle of the pine tree. We collected seeds from a fallen pine tree, we planted seeds, we learned how to make fertilizer, we weeded, and, well, we got dirty.

The land is a vast and incredible place with tons to do/see. There’s dogs, ostriches, and horses; ping pong and a gym and a beautiful kitchen; and a beautiful lake and nearby cities just a bus ride away.

I love and appreciate Maia and Max for what they’re doing and I recommend this experience to anyone looking to learn and laugh and work hard. I look forward to going back :—)

Una experiencia simplemente increíble!! Maia y Max son unos anfitriones excepcionales, las actividades estuvieron organizadas y diversas para evitar la monotonía, los alrededores son hermosos. Fue simplemente bellísimo trabajar con la naturaleza, con tan bonita vibra que tiene Maia y su pasión con el proyecto.

El haber vivido esta experiencia fue muy gratificante, las instalaciones son hermosas, rodeadas de arboles y animales, el trabajo era puntual cumpliendo los tiempos establecidos, la labor realizada con el proyecto de reforestacion me acerco mucho al medío ambiente y la problemática de los monocultivos, una labor que ciertas ocasiones requiere un poco de sudor pero que tu estancia en este lugar lo vale. Tuvimos la fortuna de interactuar con gente local, conocer bonitos lugares y comida deliciosa. Max, Maia y Vale son geniales, la pasamos chido, espero poder verlos pronto acá o en Colombia.
