La experiencia en ecovita fue maravillosa, aprendí sobre muchas cosas del campo, cómo sembrar, sobre plantas, etc. El lugar es muy tranquilo y pude tener un contacto muy directo con la naturaleza. Ricardo es una persona muy colaboradora y siempre está dispuesto a enseñarte lo que más pueda. Sin duda fue un voluntariado de mucho aprendizaje.
Saludos a todos y ojalá puedan vivir la experiencia ecovita

Fue una bonita experiencia haber recibido y compartido con Jhon, una persona con una sonrisa siempre, siempre predispuesto y con ganas de aprender y compartir . pudimos compartir con la experiencia de llevar una vida sana, de aprender de la naturaleza, compartir con las labores de la finca como; siembra, pintura, limpieza, atención al cliente, cocina de alimentos saludables, de enseñarle algunos platos típicos ecuatorianos, compartir con la comunidad; con niños, jóvenes y adultos mayores, tuvimos la oportunidad de construir el taller comunal productivo RiseEcuador y de ayudar en el colegio
