Past Fellows have apprenticed at NGOs teaching sustainable farming practices, at agricultural schools, and at indigenous farm cooperatives. Get outside, stay active, connect with your community, and learn about this important part of Ecuador's culture and economy.
"I learned a lot of valuable farming skills and got close to other community members as we worked the fields together."
"When we stopped for break and I sat there, the juice from a sweet slice of watermelon rolling down my chin, I felt blessed to experience the first “real” hard day of work in my life."
"I’ve learned volumes about agriculture, identified it as an opening to address the question of climate change, and made lifelong connections along the way."
