Volunteering in Peru Tree planting

Day 1 Native Tree Planting Volunteer Extension

  • 1 Lunch
Deforestation is a significant problem in the Andes due to commercial logging, clear-cutting for agricultural use, as well as household uses of wood for cooking and home-building. We are now working on a reforestation project that involves tourist participation as part of the " Plant for the Planet" program of the United Nations Environment Program. Transfer to a local community such as Rumira, Pachar or Piri with your guide and meet a representative of the community who will take you to the project site where you will help plant new, native Queuna, Tara, Aliso, and Huaranguay trees, water existing trees, and providing other maintenance at the project facility. Travelers, alongside community members and the guide, will improve the irrigation system, construct fencing for the site and the water storage pool, and develop a windmill water pump. You will learn about the history of the project, its sustainability due to the inclusion of the local youth association, and get your hands dirty. The trip will include a tour of the community and lunch at a local restaurant located near the project site. In the evening, transfer back to your hotel in Ollantaytambo.

This full day trip is approximately 7 hours. Click here for information on Plant for the Planet

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!

Good to ideal period to travel, and many people choose to visit at this time.
Chance for unpredictable weather but with fewer visitors.
