Working in local agroforestry production (the indigenous forest garden)

Spearheading reforestation projects

Promoting environmental-based tourism in botanical gardens

Planting fruit tree nurseries for local distribution

Collaborating with farmers to discover new and potentially marketable, eco-friendly, amazonian products for national or international distribution.

In addition to engaging in unique Amazonian activities such as swimming in waterfalls, turning cacao into chocolate, and trekking in the virgin rainforest, our immersion internship program offers the chance to become part of an Ecuadorian family and community, dive deep into language learning (Spanish and Kichwa!), and create your own community-based projects.
