Review for The Tandana Foundation, Spring Valley, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My thank you to the Tandana Foundation for making available the opportunity to visit Ecuador, early February 2020. I was one of 16 master gardener volunteers who traveled from Ohio to work on a project at an agricultural high school. The project began with a group of strangers receiving a seemingly overwhelming assignment. The completion of the project resulted in the beautiful landscaping of the schools' entry road with almost 400 plants. We shared lunches as shy students and volunteers alike were exposed to each others smiles, studies, culture, foods, families and communities.
The itinerary was well rounded. Each day was different and packed with exhilarating experiences that allowed intimate insight into the lives of an indigenous people. The group of 16 strangers that started the week ended up as friends. Each days work and activity somehow fostered a cohesion. We looked out for each other and tried to ensure each person was successful and comfortable at whatever job and task was at hand. Thank you Charlotte, Sarah, Nicole, and MaJo for your care. This trip was the best!
