Well we are located in the center of the municipality and this is a quiet place growing due to its proximity to Bogotá, so You can have rest in a quiet place and also be near to the movement of the city. And well, the added value of the experience is given by the work that we do here, the fact of working with the community and its different population groups: children, young, adults, will be what really will enrich your experience here.
Like physical space we have four places: the first one is for the articulation of productive proposals, its like a little store that wants to support local ventures and also that coud help to support economically the house. The secound is called "the meeting corner with the book" that seeks to promote reading, and also is the place for pedagogical meetings. A third one is the "arts room" in wich we offer arts workshops and we do painting, photography and musical exhibitions. And the last space It's projected as the green space of the house, we seek to consolidate a vertical garden. So your help could be in any of these aspects, for example, You can help to organize the place to make it better, more enjoyable for other people, or you can help us with the reading circles or another proposals to promote reading, or proposing workshops of different types mainly with an alternative pedagogical approach that allows the participants to enjoy the experience and learn different things. Also You can help with the conversation clubs. Or You can help us with the project of vertical garden.
So those are the main tasks that we carry out in this place and you could help us. :)
About staying and sleeping: We have a simple room that has a bed and a wardrobe, in front of this is the bathroom that has a toilet and shower, it's very important to care and clean this bathroom because it's accessed by people who attend the offer from the house-workshop.
About food: We have a kitchen so We can prepare food together or if you prefer you can prepare your own food, we can agree that.
This is a quiet place, so the main plans can be: go for a walk, get to know the local cultural offer, go for a beer or a coffee in the nearby places. Visit other nearby municipalities such as Madrid or Faca; Madrid has an interesting gastronomic offer in desserts and Faca has a place of environmental and patrimonial wealth called "las piedras del Tunjo" so, those are the main plans that we can suggest on your free time.
