Amazing Experience Developing Water Harvesting Technologies for the local community
"I spent a month volunteering in Mizque as part of the water project. I was given the task to develop a non-electrical syphon pump using readily available materials. Simon and Jessica were fully supportive of the project. They funded all parts required and readily supported any planned experimentation work required. I was able to work with local farmers and the local government Engineer to spread understanding on the technology being developed. While living on the farm we had amazing meals from organic produce prepared and eaten as a group. On the days off we could explore the surrounding areas of Mizque. Endless waterfall, cannoning, mountain biking over historic bridges. Also, able to go to community organised events and festivals. A really remarkable experience, highly recommended."- Patrick Burns
