We are a small family living in Urubamba, in the Beautiful Sacred Valley. My family has lived here for multiple generations and we are now hoping to transform the land to use it for the production of vegetables and herbs. Right now it is just my mother and I living on the land, and we would love to have help with the work thats required to get this started. There are also other projects, such as building a fence and various construction jobs. Recently, we've started using our farm house as a paying guest let, so other travelers are around as well. We enjoy meeting people from around the world and sharing the peruvian culture. I am fluent in both english, spanish and the native language Quechua, and can help with language practice. Urubamba is a small town that hasn't yet been discovered on the tourist path. It is close to the train to macchu picchu, and only an hour from cusco.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
Travellers can practice spanish with me, learn about peruvian cooking and culture, as well as the history of the wonderful sacred valley.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We have gardens already in production that we could use help maintaining, as well as starting a medicinal herb garden and vegerable garden. People with experience in gardening would be very appreciated as precious knowledge would be an asset. Also a few little construction tasks around the farm, such as building a fence, painting, building some pews.
There's lots of space around the property to set up a tent, if you don't have a tent it's ok we can accomodate you in a room. As you wish! There are bathrooms and showers available for use as well.
