Hacienda Tranquila’s mission is to work toward improving the environmental and social conditions of the Galapagos. Our volunteers translate this mission into action
Service is where we provide our labor force in aid of whatever needs the farming community has prioritized. These contributions are extremely diverse, and are dependent on the immediate needs of the community. One day we may assist a widow in putting in a foundation for her new home, another we might collect chicken droppings for a community compost pit, another we thresh corn or sugar cane, or pick fruit and vegetables where help is needed. Our first major community project was a multi year effort to bury a secondary water pipe from the spring that provides water for the farming community of twenty-five families.
