Alongside our partner, Tabonuco, you will learn about food security and the history of Puerto Rico while working side-by-side with community members on an educational farm.
This program will take you to Camp Tabonuco, a farm in the heart of Puerto Rico (Mameyes, Jayuya).
Camp Tabonuco is an off-grid farm set among forests, fields of coffee, and other fruit trees. While at Tabonuco, you will support several projects on the farm, including planting trees to support reforestation efforts, learning about agroecology, and helping with alternative construction projects (wood, bamboo, clay). All your efforts will be focused on empowering people of all ages to cultivate social awareness and ecological responsibility.
