We live in northern argentina, province of Catamarca in the Mountains, in 1000m height 10km from the next very small village Anquincila.
It is a big space, we have 20ha. We try to live in harmony with nature.
Life is very basic.
The next very small village is a 10km away, to get to catamarca, the capital of this province it is a 2h bus ride.
Our food is vegetarian. We don't welcome alcohol. Kids are welcome.
You would learn to make earth-constructions, and organic farming.
We also have an initiative going with people from this region.
We speak Spanish, English, German and French.
You need a tent, sometimes we have a space in a house which is not finished yet, so it is not really comfortable
There is space for camping, there are showers, there are no toilets.
There is only emergency internet, and if you climb up a hill there is a weak phone signal.
Just get in contact with us if you are interested.

it depends a bit on the season what you can learn, but as winter is not too strong there´s always something to learn about growing vegetables. you have to learn improvisation! all the things you need to work as you would like to do it are usually far away...you may learn to love simple life or you may get mad about it...listen to the sound of silence... and all the lessons that sharing other peoples lives in their ways may teach you. by now there´s always much to do in eco- construction.
i usually try to give each person the tasks she is interested in.
earth-constructions, organic farming, wood-production, water reservoirs
