This project aims to engage all community members of a Quechua community Quilcas outside of Huancayo located in the Central Andes. By actively sharing ancestral knowledge through these bio-cultural preservation tours participating families get to share their knowledge and practices on agricultural and cultural conservation which in turn educates other farmers, national tourists and international agronomists to the importance of native famer’s role in keeping the ecological balance.
Saphichay hopes to have dependable volunteers who can help create and teach workshops to the community. What they will specifically doing depends on the time of year but the workshops will cover a broad amount of topics from making and building products from this plans and crops grown natively t how to cook these foods. Research and experiments may be required to create the workshops.
The volunteers will also need to write blog post and instructions on how to perform the workshops in both English and Spanish. This requires the volunteers be fluent Spanish speakers upon arrival.
