    Description

    Hi! We're Erika and Yhonier. Since we met, we dreamt about living in the countryside, having a finca where we could grow our vegetables, and protect the biodiversity of the area. 8 years ago we started our project, which has been growing with us along this time. Now, we want to share our home, way of living and knowledge with other people. At the same time, we want to learn from volunteers who want to share their ideas with us.

    We are in a priviledged spot, in a natural reserve where you can observe a great variety of local birds and go hiking everywhere around. There is a waterfall only 5 minutes on foot!

    Hola! Somos Erika y Yhonier. Desde siempre, nuestro sueño fue vivir en el campo, tener una finca y dedicarnos a la conservación de la flora y la fauna local. Hace 8 años que empezamos con nuestro proyecto, que ha ido creciendo con nosotros durante este tiempo. Ahora, queremos compartir nuestro hogar, forma de vida y conocimientos con otras personas. Al mismo tiempo, también queremos aprender de los voluntarios que puedan compartir sus ideas con nosotros.

    Estamos en un enclave privilegiado, en una reserva natural donde podrás observar una gran cantidad de aves endémicas y hacer senderismo. Hay una cascada a tan solo 5 minutos!

    This is not only an ecologic project, it is also an artistic project. Yhonier is an artist, so our space is a galery merged in nature where you can see many of his works. If you like green building, plants, art, living in nature and disconnect from all... welcome, this is your workaway!!

    No es sólo un proyecto ecológico, también es un proyecto artístico. Yhonier es artista plástico, por lo que el espacio es una gran galería donde se exhiben sus obras. Si te gusta la bioconstrucción, las plantas, el arte, vivir en la naturaleza y desconectar de todo, bienvenido/a! Este es tu workaway!!

    Accommodation

    There is a room for volunteers. Exceptionally, if there is a big group of hosts and we needed those beds, we have a camping area and we can lend you a tent. We offer breakfast. We can cook lunch and dinner together, but we cannot provide for all the ingredients. We appreciate if you come with some food from Cali, as there are no shops nearby.

    Hay un cuarto para voluntarios. Excepcionalmente, si viniera un grupo grande y necesitáramos esas camas disponemos de zona de camping y te proporcionamos una tienda de campaña. Ofrecemos desayuno, y podemos cocinar juntos el almuerzo y la cena, pero no podemos proveer de todos los ingredientes, por lo que agradecemos que traigan comida cuando suban de Cali, ya que no hay tiendas cercanas.
