  • Description


    Hi we are looking for a couple to stay while we go visit our family in Argentina.

    We can recive you 2 or 3 days before to explain the system of the house, garde,..etc.
    We will leaf in the house food for you and we will ask you to do little works like watering plants, feed animals( dog and cat), and take care of small trees. The work will take you 2-3 hours per day.

    We are an organic Farm in Rocha (200 km from Montevideo)
    We are a family of 4, Juli (mom, Argentine, 32years old) Libre (dad, uruguayo, 28 years old) Indi (4 years old)

    We started four years ago. We are building our house which are three geodesic domes connected together. We use bio materials like clay, sand, straw and wood for construction. We live near a community, where there are around 25 families. There are beautiful buildings and nature to discover.

    We plant many different types of trees, for wood and also for fruits.
    Our garden is about one hectar, we try to plant everything but specialise in some crops.

    We have two gentle horses. Arthur is 7 years old and helps us with many activities. Bianca is two years old and is learning the basics.

    We are very happy sharing our place with travellers, sharing the work and the daily routine. We want volunteers to feel as comfortable as possible. We hope to exchange some knowledge, with the possibility of experimenting in different activities, which you are interested in and can contribute your best.

    We usually organize the day in this way:

    7 am - We serve breakfast and we talk about the activities for the day
    8 am - We start with the activities
    12: 30 am - We serve lunch (mostly vegetarian)
    In the afternoon, you have time to rest, visit some places and do what you want. Also we can offer extra activities.
    Sometimes during sunset, we do some garden activities.
    At night, volunteers cook in their kitchen with wood fire, you will have all you need for delicious food.

    This schedule changes depending on the weather and the type of job.

    About language we don't have any problems. We are very patient to communicate, and if you want to learn spanish we are glad to help.

    Other info:

    Our source of energy comes from solar panels, we really like alternative energies.
    On Sundays, we go to Rocha to sell plants, trees, vegetables and craft.
    We have one dog and two cat s. Both are very nice.
    We harvest honey from our bees.
