  • Description

    Description

    I am a generous spirited Colombian who has been building an ecologically minded finca for the last 20 years. The finca resides on seventy hectares in the peaceful and beautiful Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. Most finca visitors express that they have found a personal paradise or shangrila as a result of the tranquility, birds, and fauna that surround the property. We want to grow our organization with volunteers to give many people the chance to experience living here.

    Help

    Gardening includes maintaining paths, pruning bushes and trees, and building steps and gutters to prevent erosion. Other includes marketing our tourist accomodations through web listings and contact with travellers inquiries. Building includes creating pads for a 4 unit campground as well as building some tables, wilderness kitchen and washrooms. The animal care is to feed and care for our mules which are used for mountain tours and basic transportation. In exchange for accomodation we would like the volunteers to give the finca 4 hours per day. For people who rise early, your volunteer effort can be finished by 11 am leaving the rest of the day for exploring and enjoying the Sierra.
