    Help

    We hope that the volunteer helps us in the daily tasks of the farm. It can be take care of the crops, take care of the buffala. It can also help in case you are implementing a new production that needs constructions.
    What we hope is that he is a kind person and very respectful of the peasant culture and the country people. Be interested in cultural exchange in mutual respect.

    To make it clear, the estate is not a hostel for travelers who want to pay for a room with work. We are not interested in that kind of relationship. The farm is a house where a person lives mainly and the guest should behave as a guest and not as a customer.

    For the volunteer the work schedule is generally from 7AM to 11:30 a.m. with a half hour break. We give you tasks that correspond to your level and your motivation. The work is generally very smooth and quiet without any stress. It is an opportunity to breathe in the nature, to have a contact with the earth, to observe woods and animals, to accompany the workers with good atmosphere.

    In our idea work is a pretext to exchange, learn, discover, enjoy and have fun. If we need professional workers we hire them separately because they are very efficient, with the volunteers we do not want a relationship of a work type: we do not demand professionalism from the volunteer but if motivation interest and taste of doing things and goodwill.



    We do not like tourists coming in Colombia to criticize and despise what they find here. We appreciate foreigners who enjoy everything positively and who do not believe themselves superior because they are foreigners. We really appreciate that they tell us about their country and they ask us about Colombia in the positive aspects ... We are very sensitive to the negative waves coming from outside !!!

    We like people who show the same generosity and human warmth that we can offer here.

    Esperamos que el voluntario nos ayude en las tareas cotidiana de la finca. Puede ser cuidar los cultivos, cuidar la buffala. También puede ayudar en caso que se este implementando una nueva producción que necesite construcciones.
    Lo que esperamos es que sea una persona amable y muy respetuosa de la cultura campesina y de la gente del campo. Que sea interesado en el intercambio cultural en un mutuo respeto.

    Para que sea bien claro, la finca no es un hostal para viajero que quieren pagar habitación con trabajo. No nos interesa ese tipo de relación. La finca es una casa donde vive principalmente una persona y el huesped se debe portar como invitado y no como cliente.

    Para el voluntario el horario de trabajo es en general de 7H AM hasta 11h30 con media hora de pausa . Le damos tareas que corresponden a su nivel y su motivación. El trabajo es en general muy suave y tranquilo sin ningun stress. Es una ocasión de respirar en la naturaleza, tener un contacto con la tierra, observar matas y animales, acompañar los trabajadores con buena ambiente.

    En nuestra idea el trabajo es un pretexto para intercambiar, aprender, descubrir, disfrutar y divertirse. Si necesitamos trabajadores profesionales les contratamos por aparte porque son muy eficientes, con los voluntarios no se desea una una relación de tipo laboral: no le exigimos profesionalismo al voluntario pero si motivación interés y gusto de hacer cosas y buena voluntad.



    No nos gustan los turistas viniendo en colombia para criticar y despreciar lo que encuentran acá. Apreciamos los extranjeros que disfrutan de cada cosa de forma positiva y que no se creen superiores por ser extranjeros. Apreciamos mucho que nos cuentan de su país y que nos preguntan sobre Colombia en los aspectos positivos..Somos muy sensibles a las ondas negativas llegando de afuera!!!

    Nos gustan la gente que muestra igual de generosidad y de calor humana que les podemos ofrecer aca.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Una habitación independiente con ducha compartida entre 2 sin agua caliente. Compartemos tambien una cocina con nevera, licuadora, televisión con cable.
    No le damos la comida pero esperamos que la idea sea compartir entre todos...Aun así se respeta la comida de cada uno y no se debe usar o consumir sin su autorisacion.
    No le hacemos la comida pero la puede comprar por muy barato (4500pesos) a la vecina pero la idea es que tambien podamos compartir esos momentos...

    No se acepta ninguna clase de consumo de drogas en la finca ni en el pueblo. Es una cuestión de respeto, tienen que entender que la droga es algo muy mal visto en el medio tradicional colombiano y no se puede meter en riesgo la reputación de nuestra finca en el pueblo. Aca todo se sabe y se comenta entre vecino y puede generar problemas. Vivemos en paz con nuestros vecino no queremos que se genere ninguna clase de problema.

    -------------------------------------------------
    A separate room with shared shower between 2 without hot water. We also share a kitchen with refrigerator, blender, television with cable.
    We do not give the food but we hope that the idea is to share among all ... Even so the food of each one is respected and should not be used or consumed without its authorization.
    We do not do the food but can buy it for very cheap (4500pesos) to the neighbor but the idea is that we can also share those moments ...

    No drug use is accepted on the farm or in the village. It is a matter of respect, they have to understand that the drug is something very badly seen in the traditional Colombian environment and you can not put in risk the reputation of our farm in the town. Here everything is known and discussed between neighbors and can generate problems. We live in peace with our neighbor, we do not want any kind of problem.
