    Hello! My name is Josefa and I tell you that I live with my family in the countryside, we have a very eco-friendly way of life, we love nature and life in freedom. We are several members of this family, my dad Francisco, mom Cecilia, my brother Javier (he has down syndrome), we have animals, who are an important part of our lives too!!.

    We are located in the province of Colchagua VI region, next to the highway and an hour approx. of Pichilemu. It is a land located in the countryside 4 minutes from the town of Peralillo. We are very orderly with our times, we like to make the most of the day, we always have many tasks to do, that's why we need people who can come and support us. We offer a pleasant, welcoming atmosphere, food and accommodation. We like the field trades that we try to rescue. Also construction with demolition material.

    We make the most of the natural resources we have and transform them in our own way. Thank you for reading us, we are waiting for you! My house has a cozy atmosphere, everything is made by us, from the construction to the bread we eat. We also have our clothing workshop at home and an ecocenter. We like to be in contact with the simple and essential in life, so if you want to come help us, you are welcome!!! we want to create new ties and teach or learn what we can about life.

    We have an ecocenter and a cafeteria with everything recycled, in a house that we have in the same land. Also here hands would come super, especially if they know some art or like permaculture even better.
