Requirements

The farm site is located half an hour from Pereira and at a high elevation we experience a lot of rain and it can get cold. If you accepted as volunteer keep this in mind and bring warm clothing, as you’ll be on a farm there are many insects, please bring insect repellent! You’ll also be responsible for your own wellbeing and care when using equipment. We also require a beginner level of Spanish as we are non-english speakers. 

Apply

Most of our volunteers apply via Worldpackers a site which connects volunteers to projects. If you are not on the platform you can also reach out to us via email at foundation@neotropic.org 

If you would like to volunteer from afar, we require help from a social media and web expert.  Please contact us if you could help. 

Please submit a cover letter expressing your interest in Neotropic and what skills you can bring to the project. 

Reviews

“I enjoyed my time at the farm. I am very grateful to Diego for everything he did for me. In this experience, you will always be surrounded by people because they have visitors almost every day of the week. You will participate in activities with the neighbors because it is a rural area that is always doing something together as a community. You will meet Doña Alicia, Diego’s mother, who will make you feel at home. She prepares delicious cakes, cheeses, and other delights.” 

“Diego is an incredible host! His love and commitment to nature are admirable and worth emulating. He taught us about plant care, reforestation, and construction. The tasks to be done are very simple, and as a leader, he ensures that you feel very comfortable. As the icing on the cake, we were fortunate to share with his family, who welcomed us and made us feel like part of the clan. To top it off: the farm animals. We also interacted with the neighbors from the rural area, who, just like Diego, treat you verrry well!!! Simply thank you for allowing me to meet you all.”

“Our experience was wonderful – Diego and his family are truly good people and helped us a lot while we were there, more than we can repay. The space and the place are paradises, and we felt very comfortable there; the entire community and all the neighbors are friendly, and it was worth getting to know each one. The tasks were reasonable, and I learned a lot about my abilities while working. We liked the experience so much that we wanted to stay longer! I definitely recommend this experience to anyone, for any duration. Thank you!”
