    Description

    My project is to "produce what I need". Hope to be in a mid term (electricity, foods, etc ), these words sound very simple, but themselves have a lot of work and steps to be reached. Even more if I decide to build it as a permaculture farm conception. It takes years to reach it.

    I am just beginning but I have experience since I was worked as a nurseryman during a large period of in different Companies.

    I spent my las 8 years in Costa Rica working in different matters. During the last year in Costa Rica I worked in permaculture and I learnt some concepts about it and I am trying to apply them.

    now in this moment I want to restore my old house where I still living now. I am finishing to build a new cabin Where I am going to live, preparing all thing needed for the next winter time.

    also at this moment I need to build a greenhouse with a new system to enlarge the period of productivity, during the winter time, "frost resistance".

    I live with my son, who is studying at the Austral University of Valdivia. He likes to learn english with a native spoken language , so if you are a person who likes to teach will be a good deal.

    Llastuco is a quite place, sorrounded by different kinds of trees which I planted them one by one when I had a nursery here in 1990 ( I love forest), that is why all kind of birds arrive here, because most of the farmers around cut the trees in order to get free land for crops...that is why I call it the green island...

    llastuco is located in the valley between the sea shore and Los Andes range, very close to San José de la Mariquina. It is near Valdivia, half an hour from that city.

    one hour for Panguipulli Lake,
    half an hour from Mehuin, which is a very nice place by the coast.

    If the workawayer wants to know some place near llastuco, (100 km away from it) I can go with you wherever you want to go, you pay the fuel and I have ready the car, but only saturday or sunday.



    I have internet acces in Llastuco, but sometimes depending on wheather it gets slow.
    My internet is Unlimited.

    I don´t smoke, If you want to do it you can but outside the house.

    Now ( march 19) I am looking for a person that can help me to:

    1) store firewood for winter time.
    2) move my furnishings from the old house to the new cabin.
    3) after moving those things, I must restore my old house (painting and clean it)
    4) build a balcony at the cabin.
    5) build a greenhouse.
    6) put some plants of chamaecyparis from bareroots to a spot container.

    I also Offer a good conversation, visits to some neighbors who produce pigs and cattle.
    if a workawayer wants to learn spanish I have a patience to do it, teaching pronunciation, etc.

    one bedroom for one or two people, a kitchen where they can cook.
    We may cook together also if they want to.
    In this moment I can provide a bedroom and a kitchen for cooking.

    I offer food, and I provide it during the days of work, but cooking I think could be the same cooking for both.
    I think it s up for the workawayer if he wants to work 3 or 5 days a week.
    for me 3 days is fine.
    We may cook together and I share my own.
    water
