Esto ha sido una aventura genial, magnífica que si en realidad estás preparado para conectar con la paccha Mama este lugar lo es… cada día son experiencias nuevas al momento de trabajar en la tierra puedo decirte que aprendí más acerca de como se desllervar la cementera, limpiar maíz mala hierba , sembrar plantas lechugas , coles, cebolla, ajo ,garbanzo , sistema orgánico basado en sabiduría ancestral, reparación de porrero sembrado reygrass,cubierto con abono orgánico …. Los anfitriones han sido muy considerados conmigo y me han abierto las puertas al pasar unos días más.

Fue mi Primer voluntariado, muy recomendable si deseas pasar tiempo en la naturaleza, Don Patricio es una persona muy divertida y siempre estaba contando sus experiencias y dando toda su sabiduría, a demás que siempre tuve facilidad para ir a Cuenca sin problema, me gusto la experiencia y el anfitrión es súper buena onda

Sentí que al anfitrión le faltó mucha comunicación con los voluntarios, si le molestaba algo no lo decía y no había forma de resolverlo. No dejó clara las reglas de la casa y el anfitrión nisiquiera vivía allí. La casa muy desordenada y no había implementos para limpiarla.No había curso de permacultura y no era jardinería, era trabajo pesado de hacer canales en terreno lo que requería personas con mayor fuerza o especificar en la oportunidad que requerían hombres y no mujeres. de mi parte le agradezco a patricio su hospitalidad y a Ricardo lo invito a ser más amable y expresarse mejor
