Our farm is nestled in the mountains of Santander, Colombia, bordered by two rivers and a one hour ride away from San Gil. With 40 acres of virgin land, a gentle weather, and a host of nature activities, it is the ideal getaway for workawayers looking to explore the wild side of Colombia !
At this moment we are germinating seeds to reforest part of the mountain that was used in the past for grazing cows. We also harvest organic coffee. We want to start a project with bees to harvest honey, we are experimenting with making liqueurs with the fruits of our farm, soaps, essential oils ... so this is a space to experiment. All people who want to learn or share knowledge are welcome in our place. 😀

We dream our farm to be a place of experiment, of creativity and cross-cultural, where people can learn by puting their knowledge together : skills, languages, etc. ( we can teach Spanish, French and Russian). We are city-people who decided to go live in the countryside, so everyday is a learning experience for us! Hope it can be one for you too!
In general, we are looking for creative people, who would like to add their mark to our farm. Sharing, discussing, proposing ideas and helping us realize them. Whatever quality you might have, might be interesting to us ! 😊
