Our work with campesino communities includes greenhouse construction, capacity-building, and on-site workshops and trainings that focus on agroecological methodology. We collaborate with the Ecohuella Farm, a local multi-generational, organic farm, to host a variety of hands-on agriculture workshops and networking events for campesinos.
All of our programs foster cultural understanding and connections between participants and the communities we work with. Some programs provide valuable research that help support local development. Other programs work directly in communities. Revenue from experiential learning programs helps fund our agriculture initiatives and day-to-day operations.
All projects are identified and designed in conjunction with the communities, according to their needs and realities. Our current focus is greenhouse construction and training related to greenhouse cultivation for campesino families. In the harsh growing climates of the Andes, greenhouses allow campesino farmers to grow a wide variety of vegetables year-round, supplementing their diets and providing valuable income through sales.
The Ecohuella farm is an organic, self-sustaining demonstration farm focused on the exchange of campesino farmers’ experiences and knowledge. Founded and led by a campesino family, the farm provides hands-on trainings and workshops that respect the Quechua language, local learning styles, and traditions.
