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.Learn more

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 recomend this experience to any traveler who wants to learn in the nature.
