    *️️️*️️️*️️️Buscamos 2 voluntarios dinámicos para ayudarnos este invierno, a partir del 10 de julio. Se requiere cocineros veganos, con ganas de ayudar limpiando y cuidando un hostel, y un nivel básico de inglés y castellano (escribiendo y hablando). Alojamiento es rústico y el equipo es genial!*️️️*️️️*️️️

    NOTE: We are NOT currently building anything. You WILL get hands-on experience with a successful eco tourism project, learning the ins and outs of making it work... permaculture systems, maintenance, and a cooperative business structure.

    We are looking for vegetarian / vegan cooks, gardeners, carpenters / fix-it types, and cleaners.

    We are a tight knit international group looking for enthusiastic, creative, and healthy volunteers to help with different aspects of our ecologically focused tourism project! We grow vegetables and keep chickens, use solar panels and passive solar design, and teach ecological design and lifestyle techniques to locals and tourists.

    Help is needed with a large organic garden/vegetable orchard, grounds maintenance, vegan and vegetarian cooking, events planning, and administration/ guest relations.

    Each volunteer will have a main focus while on-site, though we keep an open and flexible policy. For example, we sometimes ask gardeners to help with guest relations, help to prepare breakfast, etc. At the end of the day, we work together to complete all of our tasks, while having a good time, eating good food, and enjoying this beautiful part of the world :)

    AVISO: NO estamos construyendo en este momento. SÏ vas a tener experiencia con un proyecto eco-turismo exitoso, aprender como funcionan los sistemas de permacultura, mantenimiento, y una estructura cooperativa de negocios.

    Ahora buscamos a cocineros veganos / vegetarianos, gente para ayudar en la huerta, carpinteros, y ayuda con la limpieza.
    Somos un grupo tipo familia de todo el mundo, buscando gente copada con entusiasmo, creatividad, y buen salud para ayudar con varios aspectos de nuestro proyecto de eco turismo! Tenemos una huerta grande, gallinas, paneles solares, diseño pasivo solar en la casa, y enseñamos diseño ecologico y habitos para vivir una vida más sostentable a traves de practica, a le gente local y turistas.

    Necesitamos ayuda con una huerta organica grande, limpieza, administracion, y atencion a huespedes.

    Cada voluntario enfocará en algo especifico con nosotros, mientras somos flexibles y esperamos que seás tambien! Por ejemplo, aveces pedimos que jardineros nos ayudan con limpieza o la cocina, etcetera... Es que decir que trabajamos juntos para lograr todas las tareas para el funcionamiento del lugar, mientras pasarlo lindo, comer rico, y disfrutar esta zona increible de la Patagonia!

    We are an international team (French, Brazilian, Australian, Argentinian, North American, Chilean... :) working on an exciting ecological travel option and learning center for travelers of all backgrounds! We have a beautiful "Earthship" sustainable house. We worked with Michael Reynolds and Earthship Biotecture in March of 2015, building the house with 70 volunteers and students from around the world!! We have solar power and solar hot water systems installed, we used many recycled materials in the building (including car tyres, bottles and cans), we are currently plastering with Adobe and doing lots of carpentry, grey water plumbing. Now we also have yurts and a tipi that we rent to travelers, a kitchen to prepare meals for ourselves and guests, and are in the process of growing workshop and excursion options for locals and guests. The volunteer accommodation is outside in tents on the property, with gorgeous Andean views and awesome communal food. We cook only vegetarian meals, primarily with ingredients from our own garden :) As well, we practice yoga, meditate, and are open to learning new healthy ways of self-care!

    If you want to learn some real-life and functional sustainable architecture and lifestyle techniques while helping with guests and property maintenance, you may want to spend some time with us!
