Volunteering at La Gran Vista Agroecological Farm reviewed by Samantha
"I volunteered on Donald's farm a couple years ago in order to learn more about what it takes to have a sustainable farm, and to see if farming was really for me. I can't say enough wonderful things about Donald, his family, and the farm itself. Not only are they all welcoming, hospitable, and kind, but they all have unique personalities that were such a joy getting to know. I was able to learn more than I ever thought possible, Donald's farm is a true representation of a sustainable farm. Donald himself is so fun to be around, and gently pushes you to think deeper, to be more environmentally aware. His knowledge is invaluable and his love for his country is admirable. I 100% recommend visiting this farm to anyone and everyone."

Unique and enriching experience reviewed by Jessica Grans
"Volunteering with En Via was one of the best decisions I made. I Immediately felt connected to other foreigners and travelers through a community that wants to improve the lives of local Oaxacans. Heading out of the city bustle to connect with an indigenous community and work with the children to expand their language skills was a highlight of my week. The community I worked in was peaceful and beautiful and laid back. The children were delightful and charming even in their ocasional rebellious or timid moments. I enjoyed the challenge, but always felt supported by the coordinators. I came to feel as though I, also was a part of the community I taught in. Very enriching and memorable. "
