    --Looking for musicians and artists to come and spend some time on our farm in-between San Rafael and San Carlos Antioquia. We also look for skilled English language and yoga teachers to help out from time to time.
    --Buscando músicos y artistas para compartir conocimientos en una finca orgánica ubicado en San Rafael, Antioquia (un pueblo con clima subtropical a tres horas de Medellín)--

    Hola amigos--
    We are a group of friends starting a community in the mountains of San Rafael in the andes of Colombia. We would like to share our space with fellow musicians and artists. If you are interested in playing or teaching music, or practicing art on the farm, send us a message! We live on a 16 hectare property with a crystal clean river a 5 minute walk away from our homestead. Ideally we are looking for artists and musicians with a green thumb, willing to help out with reforestation projects, help in our gardens, or help with our fruit trees! We have three cats, three big dogs-- so we are looking for people who enjoy the company of animals! Write us a message if you have any questions. Muchas gracias

    Somos un grupo de amigos con el proyecto de hacer un eco-aldea en San Rafael, un pueblito ubicado en las montañas a tres horas de Medellin. Nuestra finca queda entre San Rafael y San Carlos, así que estamos un poco aislado, pero a 15 minutos caminado se puede llegar a una zona turística con restaurantes y bares. Queremos compartir nuestro espacio con músicos y artistas. Si les suena la idea de tocar música o practicar arte aquí en una finca en el campo, aquí están bienvenidos. En el mundo perfecto, estamos buscando artistas que también están interesados trabajar la tierra-- sera en nuestro proyecto de reforestación o para ayudar con nuestras huertas y los frutales. Tenemos wifi, una cocina compartida, y 3 perros y 3 gatos en la casa.
    Muchas gracias para su interés y esperamos conocerles aquí en la finca

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers on the farm have the opportunity to spend time around el macanal river in San Rafael, Antioquia--getting to know a small community of Colombians and immigrants living in the Antioquian mountains. We are trying new farming techniques, new types of construction and in general trying to learn new things as often as possible. Everyday there is something to learn or to try on the farm.

  • Help


    As many of our volunteer oportunities will change with the season as well as with the skills a volunteer brings to the table, it is a bit difficult to describe the daily tasks of all volunteers. That said, we expect 2 hours of good help-- five days a week-- in exchange for accomodation.
