Our Organic Farm Volunteering Mindo Ecuador is a cultural exchange opportunity worldwide for those interested in working and in learning about sustainable permaculture. Do you like wild and unique places? This is the right placement for you. The program is placed in an Eco-lodge at San Jose de las Tolas village (one hour from Mindo – known for outdoor adventure activities). Eco lodge’s goal is to protect the remains of the Cloud Forest.

The Eco-lodge is into the “Andean Eyebrow” ecosystem at the Cloud Forest – northwest and two hours from Quito. Many of its characteristics are similar to the rainforest. However, since it is not flat, but on a slope, the sun rays are able to penetrate deeper inside the forest, thus giving place to exuberant and unique life forms. We offer volunteers the opportunity to experience life in the jungle working directly with nature of Ecuador.

Participants support an ongoing Organic Farm Volunteering Mindo Ecuador program aimed at developing socially and ecologically sound organic practices focus in the organic coffee plantation. Work as a volunteer in the Cloud Forest, Ecuador offers you the exceptional opportunity to enjoy the beauty of this place and help to preserve the amazing natural resources of Ecuador. Volunteering in the natural place will give volunteers an amazing life in the clouds.
