Río Muchacho Organic Farm & School
The Río Muchacho Organic Farm is located in the Río Muchacho Valley on the Ecuadorian coast 30 km north of Bahía de Caráquez. The farm is located 8 km inland. Río Muchacho now plays an important role in the conservation efforts of Ecuador by researching and teaching about alternatives to conventional agricultural techniques and practices. Some current projects include the promotion of bio-gas, solar power, composting systems, worm culture, water recycling, reforestation and forage systems, permaculture, organic farming techniques and environmental tourism. In their local environment school, the neighbouring farmer’s children, students from all over Ecuador and farmers themselves learn about sustainable agriculture and lifestyle!
