    Description

    I am an architect, and I am in the construction of a sustainable project, the idea is to use materials that do not pollute the environment and not having to exploit our resources, also i want to use the Indian techniques of my country where our ancestors built stuff without machines, also to create our own gardens, the project will be held in the department of Cesar in Colombia.
    I would like to invite those travelers who like to build and want to learn new techniques to participate in the project, the idea is to stay for a period of three weeks working in construction and agriculture in return I will give you food, lodging and good teachings.The project starts on July de 2013




    Note:
    1) It is important to have health insurance and yellow fever vaccine.
    2) It is for simple people who see beautiful things in the Simple Life.
