I live in a small farm + forest 15 km a way from coyhaique, near beautiful lakes, rivers and mountains. I love the outdoors, and has been my passion and job for the last 30 years and more
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help with Eco Projects
Help around the house
I am very connected in the area with many networks (farmers, Tourism, Universities, local entrepreneurs, and others) . I am very fluid in english. I have leave in Coyhaique for more than 25 years. I am a leader in the community organizing local sports events.
The learning opportunity would be to add new skills and knowledge to live a small sustainable patagonian farm. The opportunity to practice and have equipment to practice outdoor activities in the field. Also the change to practice spanish and learn from a culture chilean experience.
We would be working on a new educational trail in the farm.
I need help on my farm, greenhouse, work with chicken coop, building a trail in the forest, collecting firewood, and other Patagonian works at the farm. I am building from cero a new trail, to teach in the outdoor. I have a small cabin in the farm to stay. Also you can camp here if you would like to learn about camping before leaving for a long trip !!!
I have a few proyects like building a deck to place a YURT, collecting fire wood for the winter. Working on the greenhouse and other.
I have a few options. A small cabin in the woods, that I rent if is not in use this would be available for people of the program, space to set up a tent in the woods (I would provide the tent and sleeping gear).
I always have lots of food at home. I understand, that the idea of work away is a great opportunity to share what we love and do. I would love to learn how to cook food from other parts of the world. I would be happy to buy the food, and learn how to cook.
Lots of beautiful things you can do around. Ideal please for travelers that would like to feel the patagonia life better, also to help with new sustainable proyects and ideas.
