  • Description

    Description

    We invite you to help in a beautiful farm near the town Mallín Grande (two hours away from Puerto Rio Tranquilo) at the Chilean Patagonia.
    It's a familiar farm, worked by a great teamwork with a lot of experience and Patagonian wisdom.

    Volunteers are needed for many farm tasks: irrigation prairies, grass harvest, care for greenhouses and farms, to shape and clean trails in beautiful places, also to make firewood and cooking. Everyone who comes to work with us, will be integrated at this teamwork, having direct contact with the community, participating in everyday duties and activities of the place.

    The farm is located at General Carrera Lake`s shore, it is surrounded by mountains, plains, valleys, rivers, lagoons, native forests and a beautiful view to the lake and Northern Patagonian Ice Fields. The atmosphere provides a work life style full of contact with the pure and not intervened nature. For the help it's necessary to be moving in different places of the farm and in the weekends there are many trips and activities around it.
