The Exchange

When volunteers arrive, we pick them up and take them to the farm where they are provided with a place to stay and meet the family who lives there. The next day they begin their activities in which they suit better. We have a trout farm and they can feed the fish every day, we have a processing plant and they can also learn and help there, and finally, the agroecological farm that is there is suitable for harvesting and helping in permaculture
