I had an amazing experience with Piedad and Centro de Permacultura Rambuche!
Piedad is not only professional but mindful, kind, and lighthearted which created a happy atmosphere not only to work but to thrive while doing so. Both her and her colleagues were fantastically adaptable to the situations we encountered and made it easy for us to participate in productive ways. They went with the flow of things (as Ecuadoreans are great at doing :)), were thoughtful, understanding and motivating thus creating a delightful environment to live and work, making our experience satisfyingly unforgettable
This was a very gratifying project to be a part of. The work is necessary everywhere of course, but to have the opportunity to be involved on the grassroots level with a project such as this & work to manifest the visions of permaculture from the ground up is a beautiful thing. Especially in the wake of such natural disaster, looking at it as an opportunity to facilitate sustainable growth rather than a mere tragedy seems to be the outlook here. Baron and Piedad are forces of nature to be reckoned with, embodying such progress through hard work and compassion with much love and generosity!!
