    Description

    Beautiful house and parks in Mendoza:
    Hi, My name is Ariel. I moved back to my father's house in Mendoza (Argentina) after 17 years in London with my husband David, who is French. We are looking to renovate the houses and gardens on the property and we really need some help with the project.
    We live in Bermejo, a semi-rural neighbourhood 25 minute drive from the centre of Mendoza where you can find the best of both the urban and rural life combined.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The projects is a great opportunity for people to help with a eco-friendly sustainable project and at the same time improve their language skills, learn about alternative building and gardening technics, insert themselves in the life of one of the most interesting cities in Argentina and make new friends.
    We don't expect people to be experts in any field but yes to have a great attitude, be good helpers and willing to learn. We are doing this together and there's no better feeling than seeing the project complete on time.

    Help

    We can accommodate only one person (I'm afraid we can't host couples) to help us with the house renovation and gardens. We would like to connect with like minded people who care for the environment to helps us make the houses energy efficient, grow our own food and make the whole enterprise sustainable and eco-friendly. There is something for everyone here, from brick/wood work, electricity, plumbing, plastering, painting, maintenance, gardening, landscaping, food preservation/fermentation, cooking, etc… Any skill is welcome.
    It would be our pleasure to welcome you as a family member in exchange of 5 hours help in a very friendly and relaxed environment, we speak English, French and of course Spanish and love working with people from all walks of life.
    We've got quite a few projects nearing completion and some need to start soon. If you can be in Mendoza in the next few weeks, you will have a wonderful opportunity to live, learn and experience first hand the Cuyo lifestyle!
