    Description

    Hi and welcome!

    We're a Czech couple who love nature, camping, and adventuring. That's why we're building an Earthship-inspired adventure hub in Patagonia so that we can help others to rediscover nature in its purest form.

    This is a 30ha property with its own rock-climbing crag with about 30 routes set up. Both local and international climbers have been coming to this magical valley to climb and hang out with like-minded peeps.

    We're now working on setting up a proper campground for all the visitors using Earthship building principles to ensure minimal impact of our operations on the environment and we're looking for help with the project. We started building in January and have the base of the first Earthship finished. Please see photos for more info. Our plan is to build a common room with a rocket stove, and bathrooms with solar-powered showers using rainwater. There will be an adjacent private bedroom for a caretaker.

    We have a lovely couple looking after the property until tge end of 2018 as we have a small addition to our family at the moment. We’re looking for volunteers to help them around the property. There will be a mix of maintenance, construction, and gardening work needed.

  • Help

    Help

    The help consists of looking after the property, helping with construction projects, as well as helping climbers and looking after the campground facilities.

    We're also still finishing our Earthship so anyone interested in sustainable construction design is more than welcome to come and learn :-)

    If you love rock climbing, adventures, and mountains and are looking to learn more about eco construction, this might be a great opportunity for you!

    Please note this is a rural area, about 15 minutes drive to the nearest town.
