Finca Esperanza is a 100 acre permaculture farm located between Los Bancos and Pedro Vicente Maldonado, approximately 100k N.W. of Quito (Pichincha province). Volunteers get involved in all aspects of the farm, working alongside Ecuadorians, e.g. coffee and chocolate production, community outreach, environmental education and working with local schools. The farm supports fair wages for local people and restoration of habitat. There is no volunteer information on the website at present. Fees are $10 per day.
