Ecuador - Vrindavan Jardin Ecologico

Vrindavan Jardin Ecologico is located in beautiful subtropical jungle, 60 hektars of land (of which most is virgin forest), spectacular waterfalls for baths. This farm receives visitors from all over the world and has a nice vegetarian restaurant and has a steamy sweatlodge.

In the Ecological Corredor you can find more than 1000 species of the 3700 Orchids of Ecuador. Situated in the heart of this beautiful valley, you can appreciate these beautiful gifts of mother nature in our orchid farm.

There is no other place in Ecuador where you can eat great vegetarian food, play with a monkey, admire orchids, plant herbs and sweat out toxins in a temascal.

Your participation:
needs help in eco garden

etc etc

How to get there:
Arrive in Quito, then you go to Esmeralda 853, where is our main center in an old style colonial monastary that is now a Yoga temple. From there we take a bus to Rio Negro via Baños. Vrindavan is situated 3 kms from Rio Negro, a town situated halfway between Baños and Puyo. From Rio Negro, cross the bridge over the Pastaza river and follow the road uphill until you arrive. In the town you can ask the local people for a camioneta (taxi) which will transport you to the farm for $ 2.

Dear Vrindavan Jardin Ecologico,

My name is Harry, am a 23-year old physicist, and I am extremely interested in your farm. Your orchid garden looks beautiful and I would like to help maintain it.

I have worked many hours in my parent's organic farm planting, picking, spreading manure, and such.

I am looking to work for a month that falls some time between the end of June and the middle of August and am really willing to throw myself into the work! Do you think there might be a position for me?

Thank you,
