  • Description


    Hello I am Andrea I'm 24 years old, I live in the south of Argentina more known as "The Andean region" in a house in the countryside with a beautiful view to the mountains next to my friend Gabriel. we have 3 loving dogs and 2 cats. Life here is simple, we are gradually working towards the growth of this place, there are many works of different type, the place the day and the time of the year have and condition the possibilities since the climate is a bit limited, for example making firewood in the summer for the winter, to make seedlings in spring for the orchard, the works here are in general physical. Most of the help we need is to prepare this place and start with the projects, building houses, sheds, maintaining the orchard, watering, harvesting, weeding, fire.
    September is the month where spring comes and everything becomes green and beautiful ideal to work outside and visit places in the days that the region has to offer. This is an excellent opportunity also to learn the basics of construction and maintenance. I welcome the volunteers who are interested and who understand with love what we are doing together.

    The volunteers will have the opportunity to learn about natural construction, organic gardening, there are also workshops of exclusive artisans open to receive new students, on the other hand, this community is relatively new for what makes it one of the most innovative areas in the new construction trends that make more sense with the environment and are beautiful possibilities for learning, and the techniques are as dynamic and diverse as interesting. During the free time the volunteers can stroll through this beautiful city, explore, try different typical dishes of Argentina in the city as well as on the farm, know different lakes, tour the mountains and enjoy the beautiful landscape that surrounds us.
