  • Help


    On the farm usually we seek help with collecting grain, crop weeding, garden work, landscaping for public areas, making roads within the estate, as well as cleaning and maintenace of the place.

    In this moment we are restoring an old house that for its architecture is part of the colombian cultural coffee landscape. So we are seeking people with building abilities, architects, or bio constructors.

    En la finca usualmente buscamos ayuda con la recolección de granos, desyerbe del cultivo, jardinería para las zonas comunes, caminos dentro de la finca así como limpieza y mantenimiento del lugar.

    En este momento estamos restaurando una casa antigua que por su arquitectura forma parte del paisaje cultural cafetero colombiano. Así que estamos buscando personas con habilidades de construcción, arquitectos o bio-constructores.
