  • Description


    Natural Building and farm life in El Bolson . I am Kio, Japanese Canadian who married Ines, Argentinian Chilean woman and then separated, we have 2 kids.
    I live in a house / cottage out in the country ( an hour walk, 15 min in a car from town) and we will be renovating the house, Natural construction with clay straw and sand.
    There is a beautiful river RIO Azul runs in front of the house, also there is a trail to the glacier and refugios of Andes mountains. There are lots of fruit trees and berry bush to snack on.

    The farm look for strong person both spiritually and physically also economically. I share my small cabin, but prefer you stay in the beautiful tent. My car has a huge motor problem and not working , so i go back and fourth in bicycle or walk. The farm is so beautiful its worth the walk. I except to contribute fancy food due to difficult economy, there are lots of food in the garden.
