At the Finca, we work in partnership with the indigenous communities here as well as with the ex-pat population on various projects and events that share a foundation of giving back to the community through peace and joy.
The events we host are diverse in nature and ever evolving to bring opportunities to the community in a way that supports further sustainability of the farm and the indigenous community. Our events include indigenous classical concerts, mariachi bands, art shows featuring local artists, women's empowerment activities, workshops, and indigenous cultural events. All events share a purpose - to share the finca with others and give back to the community.
In 2019 we are excited to launch a series of organic skin care products, host an international documentary film crew, along with plan events with the local yachaks (indigenous medicine women and men), local musicians and artists and providing farm to table meals for those who visit.
We hope you join us at an event this year! Your heart will come alive at Finca Ellis, in the heart of the Andes Mountains of Ecuador.
Retreats for our friends from around the world - Join us for transformative experiences on the finca!
