  • Description


    This is our agroecological project in the south of Chile, and we have the privilege of being in the middle of the Mapuche communities of Araucanía. Our dream is to participate in the improvement of the world through organic farming in peasant hands. Our farm is located 12 km from the city of Nueva Imperial and 45 km from Temuco, Araucanía Region.

    You can learn by working alongside with the family that has supported this farm for thirty years and sharing with local Mapuche families and friends. You will experience the different agricultural jobs according to the seasons and eat delicious, seasonal food grown on our own land.

    Our accommodation is in a separate cabin containing a shared room (with bunk beds) and bathroom with hot water. At the moment we can only receive women.
