    Detailed programme

    This programme is an action-based initiative for ecosystem restoration and regenerative agriculture

    You will learn and support local community in various regenerative practices and improve food security, protect water supplies, and restore levels of biodiversity compromised by human and climate disruption.

    With this program, you will do a combination of activities that include the following: forest restoration, regenerative agriculture, and community activities. 

    The local families are in the process of beginning to transform their way of farming, to become regenerative farmers, with your support, carrying out this process will be of great help.

    Your work as a volunteer: 

    Regenerative agriculture helps local families achieve more sustainable use of their land. You’ll learn sustainable best practices and put those new skills into action by helping us maintain orchards in schools and on farms, promote food independence, reduce water pollution, and lower carbon dioxide levels.

    As a team volunteer, you’ll learn about ecosystem restoration and help:

    • Plant plants that attract pollinators
    • Plant trees and helping on the tree nurseries
    • Collect seeds and planting seedlings
    • Make perches for birds to help them disperse seeds
    • Place and monitor camera traps to monitor wildlife activity
    • Make compost and prepare organic fertilizers
    • Help build and prepare planting beds
    • Prepare and spread rainforest microorganisms
    • Plant medicinal and aromatic plants 


    Free time : As a volunteer you will be assigned 2 free days each week, during which you may choose to take advantage of the facilities at the Center, our non-profit hostel, which offers tours, activities and the chance to socialize with other volunteers and travellers.
