We are creating a learning and retreat center in Minca, Colombia. We need people who can do physical things like brick making, building terraces and who can design and setup gardens and greenhouses.
We have an outdoor "Maloca" with hammocks. We will serve two Healthy meals a day, breakfast and lunch and generally we all eat together.
Minca is a beautiful little town in La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and popular eco-destination. There are many opportunities to walk, hike, some of the best bird watching in the world and great beaches are nearby.
