Planting living terraces on contour, building rainwater catchment, construction of basic infrastructure and diversifying farms and forests. After a quick breakfast you will be out in the forest working side by side with the other permaculture students and local community to diversify forestry systems, harvest, resort watersheds and much needed infrastructure. Work breaks at 2-3 PM in the heat of the day and lunch is had with the community. You don’t need to worry about lunches and dinners, this is all part of the program to allow students to focus on work and learning. The schedule will be flexible and students will be expected to be proactive and positive in engaging with the dynamic lifestyle of a permaculture campesino in the campo of Ecuador.
