    We are a young couple, Pablo is a farmer and winemaker (born and raised) and Daniela is a healthy lifestyle enthusiast and photographer. We live in a small patch of land, with mostly vines, a green garden and a few fruit trees. Our aim is to feed ourselves from our vegetables and fruits, we are improving but still far from achieving this.
    Also, at the moment we are working on building our home, inspired in an earthship, and sharing experiences with people from our land and from all around the earth.

    Somos una pareja joven, Pablo es campesino y vitivinificador (de toda la vida) y Daniela es una entusiasta de la vida y alimentación saludable, además de fotógrafa. Vivimos en un terreno pequeño, en su mayoría cubierto con viñas, un invernadero y algunos árboles frutales. Nuestro objetivo es alimentarnos con nuestro propios vegetales. Estamos mejorando pero aún nos falta para lograrlo.
    En este momento, nos encontramos trabajando en la construcción de nuestra casa, inspirada en una nave tierra, y compartiendo experiencias con personas de nuestra tierra y distintas partes del mundo.

    They will share, first hand, from a farmer and wine maker that has all the traditional knowledge and also has made the transition to natural farming and knows about permaculture. Visitors will also immerse in natural and healthy eating and cooking. On one side you can have the experience of a born a raised country man and, on the other, Daniela has made the change from living in the city and traveling overseas, to a quiet and more conscious lifestyle.

    Las personas compartirán, directamente, con un campesino y fermentista que tiene todo el conocimiento tradicional, que ha hecho la transición a la agricultura natural y que sabe sobre permacultura. Los visitantes también podrán disfrutar de una alimentación y cocina natural y saludable. Por un lado tendrán la experiencia de un campesino, nacido y criado, y en el otro lado, Daniela ha hecho el cambio de vivir en la ciudad, viajar al extranjero, hacia a un estilo de vida más tranquilo y consciente.

    Camping but we recommend to bring warm gear as nights are chilly. You must bring your own sleeping bag and, ideally, tent as well. Shared bathroom with compostable toilet and cold water!
    Breakfast, lunch and dinner are communal, is cooked and eaten as a group. We ask for a small money contribution for this.
    Please consider that we feed ourselves mostly from what we harvest (vegetarian diet + honey), we expect volunteers to share and respect that.

    Acampando pero recomendamos traer abrigo ya que las noches son frescas. Debes traer tu propio saco de dormir e, idealmente, carpa también. Tenemos un baño seco, compartido, y ducha con agua fría.
    El desayuno, almuerzo y cena son comunitarios, se cocina y come en conjunto. Se pide un pequeño aporte monetario semanal para esto.
    Por favor ten en cuenta que nos alimentamos en gran parte con lo que cosechamos (dieta ovo.vegetariana + miel), y esperamos que los voluntarios compartan y respeten eso.
