    Description

    Hello, we are Blanca and Sacha, we are starting the bioconstruction project of our home, we live in a cabin in Puerto Yerúa, Entre Ríos, 500 meters from the Uruguay River. It is a small, quiet town, close to the city of Concordia.
    We have a vegetable garden, two adopted puppies and a kitten. There are also plans to start chicken coop, hutch and mushroom cultivation. We spend a lot of time outdoors, we harvest wild plants and mushrooms, fishing, there are beaches, parks, forests, hikes, barbecue, yoga, music, mate ...
    We are travelers and we have previously done volunteer work with Workaway and it was a very positive experience for both of us, from these experiences we acquired the knowledge that we are now going to put into practice and transmit to whoever is in tune.

    We leave you the link to see on YouTube a video that some volunteers who travel doing an audiovisual project made for us- ask us for the link
    I hope you enjoy it!

    Back to the Mud ❤️

    Hola somos Blanca y Sacha, estamos iniciando el proyecto de bioconstrucción de nuestro hogar, vivimos en una cabaña en Puerto Yerúa, Entre Ríos, a 500mts del río Uruguay. Es un pueblo pequeño, tranquilo, cerca de la ciudad de Concordia.
    Tenemos huerta, dos cachorras adoptadas y gatito. También hay planes de iniciar gallinero, conejera y cultivo de hongos. Pasamos bastante tiempo al aire libre, cosechamos plantas y hongos silvestres, pescando, hay playa, parques, bosque, caminatas, parrilla, yoga, música, mate..
    Somos viajeros y anteriormente hemos realizado tareas de voluntariado con Workaway y fué para ambos una experiencia muy positiva, de estás experiencias adquirimos los conocimientos que ahora vamos a poner en práctica y trasmitir a quién esté en sintonía.
    Espero lo disfruten!
