My name is Cristián, im 29 years old and im from Patagonia, after some years travelling and living in differents countries i decided that i wanted to have a sustainable way of living, thats why on 2016 i started a permaculture (sustainable way of living and agriculture) project located on a 7 hectares land next to the town of Puerto Guadal, a tiny beautiful town on the cost of a huge lake in the aysen region, 2 hours by bus from "chile chico" in chilean Patagonia. The first step of the project was to open an ecologic camping wich is already running, this year we go for the third season. a lot of travellers visited us last year and i was surprised by the reactions of the peole towards the idea of the camping. the campsites are located in the middle of the forest and every one have a nice private space, we have a common area with a kitchen, we have dry toilets, we use renewable energies and we manage our waste, the idea is that the traveller leave no trace in patagonia while staying with us. we also have a greenhouse and garden where we produce organic food for ourselves and the campers and we go once a week to a little market in town where we sell some of our veggies. We also have some animals and we are experimenting the whole time with permaculture techniques! Come and have a look!

you will be inmerse on a place that convines the local culture with the world culture. you will be able to learn or to practice your spanish if you want (we speak english too) , you will learn different things from permaculture. I am also really interested on learning from the volunteers, im on the process of becoming a farmer so i have a lot to learn. Every day we finish the day having a beer and talking of how nice life is...
we need help taking care of the camping , with the greenhouse and garden, using different machines to cut some invacives species on the land, cooking sometimes, farm duties in general. im looking for entusiastic and proactive people that loves nature and want to have a really good time in patagonia.
sleeping in tents in the camping, includes breakfast and lunch. we hope we finish the volunteer house.
there are many activities to do arround the place so on your free time you would be able to visit amazing places! we do kayaking and rock climbing sometimes so you can join us when we are going.
