Reviews

Great learning experience
"When I arrived at Terra Frutis, I wanted to learn about fruit trees, permaculture and producing my own fruits. During my 6 months of volunteering there not only I learned more about so much about fruit trees but also had amazing connection with like-minded individuals who valued whole fruits and raw vegan foods. Also I learned concepts as non-violent communication, consensus oriented decision making, yoga, and coexisting in a communal environment respecting others and acknowledging their needs too. If you are looking for a volunteer experience and self-growth, while eating delicious fruits from the TF farm and challenge yourself at the majestic rainforest of the Ecuadorian Amazon, a visit at Terra Frutis farm is strongly encouraged and recommended. Have a fun time!"- NIKOLAOS MOURTOGIAS
