I have an Spanish school, I love teaching my language and also teaching about our culture and traditions, I live with my 3 kids, we love being around people and also help others, it´s important for us to make others feel welcome. I have being teaching Spanish for the last 15 years, I lived and worked in Central America for a while and I returned to my birth country Chile, in 2012. We have built our school by ourselves, there are some things to do, the identity of the school is nature and eco-friendly place, I would love to build a mud oven, I would love some help with permaculture. my goal is to make my school attractive and comfortable, I am open to new ideas, specially with art in our walls, recicling and contruction.We are a family of 4, we are very relax and love spending time with foreigners.

My name is Katterina I own a language school in Pichilemu, where I teach Spanish to tourists who also comes to surf. I have a nice place where I have my school and also a big yard, I love gardening and I am trying to make my place nicer. I need a lot of help maintaining the garden, cleaning, planting, making wodden containers for herbs and flowers.
We will begin our vegetable garden so we need to build it and plant it.
I have a long wall where some paints have been made but it´s a nice place for someone to get inspired and paint something nice and attractive. I would love someone paint a mural, or small murals along this fence.
An important help is someone knowing about Permaculture to help me made a mud oven and cover a wall in the classroom and make a greenhouse.
