  • Description

    Description

    We are a family (couple + 1) of Extranjeros, who came traveling in South America and decided to stay in San Agustin Colombia.

    We own a small hostel in town , and we live just a few minutes out of town . The house is quite small but is very cozy and very artistic and is surrounded by great mountain view and a big garden. We built the walls with cement , but the whole decoration interior and exterior was made by volunteers and some help from ourselves (;
    Nowadays after an intesnsive course in Permaculture and Ecobuiding we wish to begin our big Ecoproject which will consist from cultivating in terraces and building Guadua apartments.
    Our volunteers will also have the option to help in the hostel if they wish to have some diversity (:

    In our place you would enjoy the proximity to San agustin which is an amazing village with great view and super chilled atmosphere with the advantage of living in the "Campo" i.e in a village house closer to nature.

    We are very experienced traveling and we try to make use of our free time to expend our horizons by traveling and learning new things. Our baby girl already have traveled with us to 5 countries and were still counting (:
    Education wise , Nadav is psychologist, Hofit is a Pharmacist and Mila is a Baby , however we didn't practice much this as our occupations.

    Accommodation

    Volunteers will either receive a private room in our house, we have a double bed or bed in dorms in our hostel (10 min walk from the house).
    Our house and the hostel are well equipped, we have a complete kitchen and hot water in the shower (: , all which the volunteer will have full access.

    Other than that, we don't guarantee providing food since we spend a lot of our time out of the house, but if we make food we will happily share it with our volunteers. Volunteers can of course use the kitchen to cook for themselves.
