    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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.

  • Help


    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 !!!

  • Accommodation


    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.
