UPDATE: Volunteers for apple harvest in end of MARCH and APRIL
Type of property: oganic farm
Size (ha): 14
Crops: fruits and vegetables
We speak: Spanish
Description: A farm with crops mainly fruits (apple, peach, pear, cherry, plum, etc.) and vegetables for their own consumption and processing (juice, sauce, vinegar, etc.). We also make natural building. Our philosophy is to seek self-sustainability, healthy living (incorporating medicines and natural food), prioritizing manual activity, and trying to live in harmony with nature. For this reason we need to share with people who are willing ad really committed to working and learning by interacting with members of the farm. We think the experience is positive but the cycles of nature are long, so we propose a time not less than three months. To share a long life of our proposal. September to November (spring): at this time the main activity is natural construction and horticulture. December to April (summer and part of fall): do fruit and vegetable crops and elaborations. It is the busiest time on the farm. May to August (autumn and winter part): there is little activity.
Accomodation: We offer a house for volunteers. Shared room (and we are building a private room), kitchen, bathroom and shower. There is always plenty of room for tents. In the little house 4 shared and a private room for a couple.
Food: We offer basic food for all meals. The kitchen is open and organized among volunteers. Food is an important part of self-sustainability so do not throw anything. It is basically vegan and if you need to consume milk or eggs, you will need to purchase.
We are: Argentinian family. We live in a farm house with different projects, but it's all part of the same goal.
