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.

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.

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.

About the host

Hi, I am Fernanda Sánchez from Ecuador. My family and I have been starting a new small 'bed and breakfast' close to the new airport in Quito, this is a family entrepreneurship that started in 2013... now I am putting a permaculture project in place on the same property of the B&B (2 hectares). I did a Permaculture Design Course in Australia with Geoff Lawton and after I finish with my own design I hope to be able to teach about it. My sister, ...
