The Experience

When volunteers arrive, we pick them up and take them to the farm where they are provided with a place to stay and meet the family who lives there. The next day they begin their activities in which they suit better. We have a trout farm and they can feed the fish every day, we have a processing plant and they can also learn and help there, and finally, the agroecological farm that is there is suitable for harvesting and helping in permaculture

First I would like to thank Citlali and Manuel for the opportunity to be a part of the team in their trout farms. It was an incredible experience and I feel like I learned a lot about aquaculture and sustainability.

I stayed at two locations, La Guitarra and El Rincón during my 3-week stay.

Also thanks to the farm-keepers Fide, Nora, Alfredo, Susana by showing me the surroundings, their culture, food and music! It was truly great to meet them.

Neminatura es un lugar con mucho potencial. Citlali y Manuel -los propietarios- son personas muy interesantes y amables. Yo estuve en la granja de Rincón de ahorcados y los veladores -con quienes viví-, Alfredo y Susana me hicieron sentir en familia, nunca comí tan bien en mi vida: nutritivo y delicioso, todo salido de la tierra fértil michoacana. Es un lugar realmente tranquilo, ideal si buscas desconectarte completamente de todo aunque en mi caso extrañé el movimiento que hay un localidades más grandes o un poco más urbanas.
