  • Description

    Description

    We are managing a self sufficient organic farm in the mountains, half an hour away from Santiago de Cali, the capital of salsa. As we are engaged in creating more biodiversity and improving the quality of soil, we would like to welcome like-minded volunteers who are eager to help us in this endeavour. Cook with us healthy recipes. Bring new ideas from your country!
    *️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️Looking for people that are pro-active and do not need to be told all the time what to do, so mostly experienced and not too young people.*️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️ We are also inviting people with artistic painting skills for some murals.
    We would like to know your special skills and preferences in order to make them as useful as possible for our project. For a commited, hard-working volunteer or couple of volunteers we can offer longer stays with extra benefits (better room, preferential volunteering schedule and other). For the moment there is no washing machine .
