  • Description


    Sustainable Project. We are the proud owners of 45 h Ranch located in the Heart of the Santa Ana Matlavat, Aculco, Estado de México. The local people say that the weather is wonderful because is mild, it's a sunny weather on the day and cold at night.

    We are located 7 minutes away from the charming magical village of Aculco where there is high production of cheese products, charreria, and a lot of horse back riding.

    We are looking for volunteers in sustainable development with experience in Aquaponics systems, Permaculture; manufacture and installation of solar panels, water treatment and filtration to clean drinking water, or basically any sustainable system; production of organic cheeses: organic chicken (meat, eggs).

    There are possibilities of assigning areas for the development of other projects too if they bring best techniques for sustainable development.

    The hours would be approximately 4 hours a day, in exchange for a bedroom with all amenities including food and the possibility of learning Spanish.

    There are nearby large cities (Queretaro, Valle de Bravo, Toluca, Mexico city, San Miguel de Allende, Bernal, Celaya, etc).

    If you are interested send me information about your sustainable knowledge.

    I'm looking for someone with experience with wood for construction (carpenter) and an electrician.
    Hi sometimes I have problems with internet.
