Help us with Amaranthine,
Cooking is important for our family , it is something that has always been the most important part of our daily life what brings the family together. From baby meals always being made at home, to learning how to make pancakes at age three, to learning how to count and tell colours apart by using different foods. There is a picture, somewhere in one of the many photo albums laying around in cabinets, that shows two girls laughing as they stir a big blue bowl full of batter, chef hats are on their heads, and you can see the twinkle in their eyes. Fast forward twelve years, and those girls have opened a cafe with their mother, who in the picture’s case was the one holding the camera, not as present in the spotlight, but no less vital for such an ordeal to take place.
Combining a love for good food and a need to make some sort of difference in the way people look at healthy and locally grown food, Amaranthine is a combination of a pastry shop, tea parlor and organic food provider. On it’s tables, you can expect everything from quiches, to cakes, to freshly made juices, all made with local fruits, vegetables and grains, grown on farms in the area and made in Amaranthine’s kitchen. As important as food is to the creators, the place you eat it is vital too, and combining a beautiful view of the ocean with a twist on 50’s and more modern style, their is no place quite like Amaranthine.
We prefer someone who is traveling slowly and can stay for more than four weeks, hopefully a few months, due to previous experiences with Volunteers we feel this is much better for our family and it will also give a better experience to the volunteer, Chiloe is very unique a place where life's rhythm is different ... the perception of time here changes the way things are and inevitably puts you in a different speed.
We are open to volunteers who are passionate about cooking and want to share it with us. A couple of us are very much looking to learn Italian cooking and language, we work with a lovely group of young people.
Please don't get in touch if you can't stay for left than four weeks,

We are a very self sufficient family with traveling experience and have created a life in Chiloe from scratch. We have a great experience here in Chiloe. we generously share all of this with our volunteers and guests. We are entrepreneurs and we feel we can share our experience and what we have created here, also help other to make their dreams a reality. We get inspired but who comes to our life and have found to be an inspiration for younger people who are traveling to learn about other ways, who are dreaming about making a difference who are looking for changing the "traditional" ways who care about making our beautiful planet a better place. who are dreaming different ways and working towards achieving them.
We need and independent and self motivated person. Someone who can bring something new and interesting to our family and our team in Amaranthine. Someone who can help us learn new things and also interested in learning. A happy, motivated and curious self, someone of a calmer energy will suit better where we live. Chiloe is a place where being un a hurry is a waist of time, we love people, who travel slowly, curious and motivated about other cultures and ways respectful of "other ways"
Someone flexible, adventurous and fun, happy and with a positive attitude ... someone who sees the glass half full not half empty.

WE have a private accommodation for our volunteers, it is five minutes from our homeIt depends if is a single person or a couple, even a small family can work.
We live in a beautiful part of the world, a temperate rainforest island in the south of Chile. We came to live here twenty years ago to fulfill a dream. There are endless possibilities here in Chiloe where the air is clean, the beaches empty, the storms strong and when the sun shines brings multiple rainbows.
I am fortunate to write this from a peaceful and blessed part of the world, full of possibilities, unique culture and perfect for bringing up a family, learning about life and ourselves. We would like to share this with someone who in return can helps us keep doing what we are doing and bring something new for us to learn. Someone responsible and trustworthy. Someone who can share with us and enjoy doing things from their heart and with their hearts.
