This summer, Regeneration Field Institute (RFI) is offering opportunities for university students to collaborate with our coalition of builders and community members striving to rebuild communities with sustainable green technology through harnessing the power and strength of bamboo. Students will receive lessons and instruction from world-renowned Ecuadorian architects, engineers, professors, carpenters, and bamboo farmers who have been actively rebuilding since the earthquake, as well as have the opportunity to collaborate with local university engineering and architecture students.

Regeneration Field Institute(RFI) is located on our 71.5-acre farm, Los Arboleros Farm, that features an ecological education center, bamboo treatment and training facility, and agroforestry cultivation operations in the rural region of Chone. Students will receive official certification from Architect Robinson Vega after being instructed in bamboo construction and building a bamboo structure within the communities of Bahía de Caráquez and Chone as well as have the opportunity to engage in activities on the farm that center around organic agroecological and agroforestry farming techniques such as compost and biochar making, harvesting and rotating tropical crops, cultivating bamboo plantations, and reforesting native tree species. See more information on registration, payment, the people behind our movement, photo gallery of our constructions, and more here on our website!
