  • Beschreibung


    We are a family of 3 living in a rural sector of Pichilemu, Chile. Laura is from Los Angeles, California, USA. Carlos is from Pichilemu, Chile. We have 15,000 square meters of land on which we have constructed our home using mixed methods of bioconstruction. We have a growing garden with a large variety of organic fruits and vegetables. We have three beehives and hope to get more.

    Laura enjoys cooking, baking, exploring methods of food preservation, hiking, kayaking, being a mother, sustainable food recolection, compost and more.

    Carlos enjoys construction, carpentary, welding, farming, surfing, body boarding, sustainable ocean fishing in kayak, learning about native plants and animals, etc.

    We are close to the beach town of Pichilemu (international surf destination) in bus and various other beaches by car. We visit often and volunteers are welcome to join our outings most of the time.

    This is a bilingual household, English and Spanish.

  • Arbeit


    We want volunteers to help with gardening and construction projects. Motivation is more important then previous skills, although diverse experiences are always helpful! This year we hope to expand our garden. You should not be afraid to get dirty or do difficult work. Construction skills of any kind are useful, but we are happy to teach. Laura will ask for help tending to the compost and in the kitchen.

    We are also looking for help in the kitchen, making kombucha, bread, lunch, etc, etc.

    We are open to volunteers with their own ideas and uses for this land. If you have an art project or other ideas we will try to help facilitate as much as possible. Creativity is very welcome here.

    You will not be asked to babysit but should definitely be comfortable with babies. If you stay in the house and share meals with us you will be expected to help with household duties within reason. This includes helping with cooking meals, dishes, sweeping common areas and keeping your room and bathroom clean.

    We look for proactive and mature people who are able to take initiative and work without constant guidance. Previous experience living with others in shared spaces is important.
