After traveling around the world for many years we found our little paradise here in northern argentina. We bought a small finca with a vineyard, fruit trees and a veggie garden.
The idea is to live off the grid and create a campground for overland travelers.
The finca is at 2100 m above sea level in a fertile valley surrounded by
picturesque mountains near the national park "los cardones".
We are an easygoing and openminded german/south african couple with a dog and a cat looking to meet likeminded people from around the world.

We started our natural build project in february 2017. Its a small round adobe house with a reciprocal roof.
The house is finished now. Tasks to come are
-building a toilet / shower house
-landscaping the outdoor area
-creating a small pond
-building a workshop/storage room
There is always gardening and general property maintenance to do.We would be happy to have helpers for the whole project. If you have experience in natural building - great! If not....it does not matter.
We gained some experience with our round house and happily share what we have learned.
Apart from building there is some general maintenance like grass cutting, pruning and fencing to do.
You can also help cooking.
If you can do some art to beautify our place you are also welcome.
