  • Description


    We have a coffee farm in the mountains near Minca, Colombia. We are beggining a small eco village and I would like someone to help teach English to the people there and some of the nieghbors too. It's very isolated and safe, lots of forest and mountain streams, and very few people. I would prefer a month minimum, due to our remote location. It's 4 a hour mule ride from the closest village. All transport, food, housing included. A couple hours a day for class, and other light duties.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The nieghbors are the original homesteaders, hardy self suficient folk with lots of skills to learn from. It's a different world, a way to really disconnect a while and see other ways to live.
