  • Description

    Description

    we are Natalia & Eyal, a Colombian, Israeli couple. we leave in a beautiful farm 80 km from bogota. we leave in a bamboo house in the middle of a mango plantation. it's really a paradise. the wether is perfect year around (15c-30c) lots of tropical fruits and several rivers in a walking distance from our farm. we eat healthy, practice yoga and capoeira. we try to learn new things about sustainable life every day and make ties with the local community. there's much to be done, as far as the imagination goes.

    if you'll join us, you can expect to help in the vegetable garden, the orchard, water systems design, land work, construction, painting, art project, web design, working with children from nearby school etc. we try to fit the activity to the person and to make it as interesting as posible keeping in mind the farms needs too.
    The work difficulty varies from shoveling and machete work to painting and decorating (we try to mix) but get ready to sweat :)
