  • Description


    I am Daniela and I fall in love in colorful Jericó and its beautiful nature that’s surround it. I have found a peaceful place 10 minutes away from the village where I live on the coffee farm with my cat.

    I am looking for nice person to help me with my projects. I am very creative human being, so I have many running projects. I make candles, soaps, natural cosmetics and household cleaners, wine, vinegar, bread, kombucha, sprouts etc. My kitchen is at the same time my laboratory and normally you will find me there. I am interested in healthy living style, medicinal plants and I love animals. I am also language teacher and starting web developer.

    I also grow my own vegetable and on the farm there is an abundance of plantains, yuca, lemons and oranges. The idea is to alternate in cooking and to share food. I ask for a weekly contribution and provide all the ingredients. I eat very little meat and a lot of veggies and are definitely open to receive vegetarians and vegans and learn from their diets.

    The climate in Jericó is warm during the day and cool at night so perfect to sleep. We have 2 dry and 2 rainy reasons a year.

    I am looking for people that are open minded, love to be in nature and take care of it. You must like cats and dogs, since I have one cat and on the farm are 5 dogs and they will want your attention ;)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can experience the farm life in the countryside, you can learn about gardening and local plants. I live in the coffee farm so you can learn about coffee production.
    You can practice languages: I speak spanish, english, german and czech. You will learn how to make natural soaps, medicine, candles, bread.....

    The place here is simply beautiful. You can enjoy the nature at maximum. The town is famous for the coffee and leather production. You can also go hiking, biking, horseback riding and paragliding.

    I am looking for a multitasking volunteer which is not scared to learn new things and is self organized and works clean and precise.

    I have many sustainable projects running and I need help with them, I make soap, candles, natural cosmetics, vinegar, fruits wine, kombucha. I am selling them online and on local farm market. Also I live in a big house and sometimes I need a help with cleaning or shopping groceries, I have garden which needs some care and I have a cat, which likes to play. If you can manage/teach me social media marketing, can write website content in Spanish or you are photographer you are warmly welcomed. You can choose which days you take off. Some days I will need you to commit but overall I am really flexible.

    Any help with new ideas in permaculture and organic farming is very welcome.

    I can accept just one person.

  • Accommodation


    I offer accommodation in the private room with double bed and private bathroom.

    I live on a farm in the mountains so the wifi is through satellite, but it works well. It can be disrupted but doesn´t happen that often. In our town Jericó there are also a few trendy cafes with great wifi.

    I expect volunteer help to prepare meals and clean dishes. Also, as a volunteer you have to keep your space clean, organized and to clean and organize common spaces.
