  • Description


    We live in a small land in Tandil about 5 kilometers from the city, about half
    hectarea, where we built our mud house, and we are putting together a
    space as self-sustainable as possible. The place is getting ready, but the profile is to build it using
    alternative energies. The house of natural construction uses
    Different techniques with mud. We have a dry bath, an organic garden, fruit and forest trees, we are putting together
    gray water treatment, we raise chickens and we have beehives. We inhabit the
    space my partner Gabriel, myself, our children Pedro aged 12, Suyana aged 10, Ligia aged 13 and Amanda aged almost 2, and Maiten aged 7 months. We like to receive people in our place, exchange, and create together

    Vivimos en una pequeña tierra en Tandil a unos 5 kilometros de la ciudad, de aproximadamente media
    hectarea, donde alli construimos nuestra casa de barro, y estamos armando un
    espacio lo mas autosustentable posible. El lugar esta armándose, pero el perfil es construirlo usando
    energias alternativas. La casa de construccion natural utiliza
    diferentes técnicas con barro. Tenemos baño seco, huerta orgànica, arboles frutales y forestales, estamos armando
    tratamiento de aguas grises, criamos gallinas y tenemos colmenas. Habitamos el
    espacio mi compañero Gabriel, yo, nuestros hijos Pedro de 12 años, Suyana de 10, Ligia de 13 y Amanda de casi 2 años, y Maiten de 7 meses. Nos gusta recibir personas en nuestro lugar, intercambiar , y crear juntos

  • Help


    My days are varied activities, but basically is collaborating with the
    construction of the house of clay that is in the process of thick, thin
    plaster, and in some places lift thatch. And also in different areas the
    assembly and maintenance of the place.
    Nuestros dias son variados en actividades, pero basicamente la intencion es que los voluntarios colaboren con la construccion de la casa de barro que esta en proceso de revoques
    gruesos, finos, y en alguna zona levantar pareces de adoves. Y ademas
    en diferentes tareas del armado y mantenimiento del lugar, como así también mantenimiento de la huerta orgánica. Nos organizamos las tareas día a día, según lo que haya para hacer y siempre con flexibilidad hacia lo que mas ganas tengan de hacer.

  • Accommodation


    The life we live is actually quite rustic, the tap is outside, the house is
    not finished.

    Accommodation is in tents or sharing a part of the house with us

    Tenemos baño seco, y ducha para ofrecer. El alojamiento para los voluntarios puede ser en carpa para dormir. Pues comemos juntos con los voluntarios en nuestra casa y pueden usar las instalaciones de la casa, cocina, baño, ducha, internet.
