The Experience

We run a small B&B close to the new airport in Quito and we are developing a permaculture project in the same property. I did a Permaculture Design Course in Australia with Geoff Lawton, my sister runs the hostel, my parents live with us and we work with local people. So this is a great opportunity to learn about ecuadorian culture and organic farming , sharing with peolple, plants and animals.

Mirolindo is such an amazing place. I spent two weeks learning a lot from Fernanda. She is an expert of permaculture and organic farm. Almost everyday I was doing something new : taking care of the plant, the trees, the animals.
I felt like a part of the family during these two weeks.
I recomend this experience to any traveler who wants to learn in the nature.

Fernanda estaba un poco alejada del proyecto por cuenta de otros proyectos que tienen, así que el aprendizaje se ha vuelto un poco perjudicado y el trabajo se ha convertido básicamente en trabajo manual, no que eso sea necesariamente el problema, pero como se trata de un proyecto organico y con muchas cosas diferentes pretendía haber aprendido más en un mes que me quedé. La finca es muy bonita y la gente agradable, tuve un problema puntual en relación a poder o no compartir con los empleados de la finca el tiempo libre pero fue solucionado conversando con Fernanda.
