We are Natalia & Eyal, a Colombian/Israeli couple. We live on a beautiful farm 80 km from Bogota, in a bamboo house in the middle of a mango plantation. It's really a paradise! The weather is perfect year-round (15 ºC to 30 ºC), there are lots of tropical fruits and several rivers a short 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 join us, you can expect to help in the vegetable garden, the orchard, in water systems design, land work, construction, painting, art projects, web design, working with children from nearby school etc. We try to fit activities to each person to make your time here as interesting as possible, but whilst keeping in mind the farm's needs too.
The work difficulty varies from shovelling and machete work to painting and decorating (we try to mix) but get ready to sweat :)
You could learn Spanish, permaculture practices, working with animals, gardening, building, cooking, landscaping, working with locals and people from all over the world, and much much more!
