Sacred Sueños Organic Farm

Location
Vilcabamba, Ecuador

Volunteering Types:
Working farm, Volunteering

This organic farm is located on 90 hectares (222 ac) in the beautiful mountains that surround Vilcabamba. The farm is open to anyone interested in organics and willing to help out around the farm. A two-hour uphill hike from Vilcabamba, the farm is a joint effort to improve a degraded mountainside using permaculture and other sustainable practices.

There are many projects that need helping hands, including trail building, composting and mulching, animal care, building structures and furniture with local materials, planting trees, beekeeping, rainwater harvesting and gardening. Sacred Sueños requires a two-week minimum commitment ($10 initiation fee, $30 per week for food) from volunteers, and expects them to work six hours per day five days a week. Sacred Sueños also offers an interesting goat cheese apprenticeship, where you can learn about the production of organic, raw goat cheese. This one-month program costs $160 and runs 20 hours per week.

Those who give advance notice can be met in Vilcabamba and led to the farm; donkey service can be provided from the trailhead for your luggage. The hike up to the farm is of medium-difficulty, but the scenery is worth it, as is the peace and quite and amazing views on arrival. There is no electricity at the farm and most people sleep in tents, however there are also some beds available. It can sleep 8-14 people, and there is a communal kitchen, solar showers and composting toilet.
