    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The ranch belongs to an NGO and our goals are to combine production with conservation. We have cows, sheep and horses that we manage holistically as well as a diversity of scientific projects that study native and exotic flora and fauna.

    You will be in touch with the local gauchos (cowboys) and the family that live on the farm.

    Dear Volunteers, afraid our summer season is fully booked now. But we are looking for a strong couple who know gardening to help set up our garden in october-november. Who is up to it?

    The work involves quite a bit of maintenance and physical work as well as work with animals. We need to set up our garden which was destroyed by the pigs.

    Depending on the season this could be anything from cleaning ditches, sowing beds, feeding animals, painting houses, fixing fences, building or repairing, herding cattle.
