Cosa farete

We will meet at 8:00 and drive, pass the middle of the world, to the Cloud Forest, on the Pacific Ocean side of the Andes, to the town of the Yumbos: Tulipe. On the way we will talk about nature, history and culture build upon farming, and its social and environmental impacts. We will make a stop at a local coffee shop for a breakfast among hummingbirds. Later at the farm we will do a walk to the waterfall, through a patch of native forest. We will spend one hour there, for later helping the team on the order of the day at the crop: harvesting, pruning, fertilizing or any other culture activities. We will learn about the details of the culture, recognize varieties, some pests and diseases and their natural enemies, and some other natural interactions we use to grow quality coffee with nature as an ally. All along our activities we will be looking for and seen by wildlife. Back at the farm house, Lorena, our house keeper is waiting with homemade lunch, on the deck (relaying on weather), cooked with local ingredients. Then chill out around the gardens with some more coffee, but different ones, until milking starts. You can watch or help, milking by hand or feeding the calves . Our tree sheep are shy, but they usually show up at sleeping time. At 5:00 we will return straight to Quito, arriving at the same bus terminal around 18:30.

Gonzalo

I am Gonzalo, and I am an agronomist since 2005 and a professional tour guide for the last 15 years. I am an NYU graduate on tourism management. I have guided all around my home country for some important local and foreign travel companies. As agronomist, I have worked on sustainability, quality certifications and exports, with more than a 100 farmers in Ecuador and Chile, for the last 10 years. I manage an organic coffee farm located in the Cloud Forest northwest from Quito. I like to research, create and apply new technologies... designing and building things. I enjoyed my agronomy thesis work on biological control, designing a system to mass-reproduce a parasitoid micro-wasp that attacks the leaf mine flies, pest of many crops. Observing nature´s deep connections and relations is fascinating, I love how intricate they can get to be.

Dove ti troverai

El Guayabal is a small, very comfortable, countryside farm, located in the Cloud Forest of the Andean Choco biosphere reserve, very close to Quito. Our policy is of harnessing what is available and save resources: energy and fertilizers through cow dung digestion, weed control with sheep, gravity irrigation, biological pest control with natural enemies, among other things, while rewarding labor work and knowledge, and create a good social impact.
