Project description

We have an Organic Farm in Urubamba in the Sacred Valley and in Cusco. The Sacred Valley is about 1 hour drive from Cusco and if you choose to be in the Sacred Valley, you will be living with a family in Urubamba.

The main objective of this project is the preservation and protection of the tropical nature.

In this project you will support and help the local workers. You will plant and maintain trees and plants, recollect seeds, fruits, thee, and coffee. Support in the process of making thee, coffee, and chocolate and help the workers in reforestation.
