    Description

    We are currently looking for someone that can help us pet sitting and looking after our plants for the last 2 weeks of July.


    We are a couple who love nature, animals and playing games and sports (we love slackline), Marvin is from France and I am Venezuelan. We were traveling and volunteering in many projects for some years and now we open our house for the exchange, this time as hosts.

    Currently we are growing food, medicines and reforesting the surroundings with native species of plants, to attract fauna and promote the natural processes of the place. We make products out of our harvest such as ferments, tinctures, soaps, preserves, and many other organic things. Our house is vegetarian, and we only use biodegradable products since we reuse the water of sink, washing machine, shower, etc.

    ==============
    Somos una pareja amante de la naturaleza, los animales y los juegos (especialmente slackline), Marvin es de Francia y yo soy venezolana. Estuvimos varios años viajando y voluntariando en diferentes proyectos en la naturaleza, y ahora abrimos las puertas de nuestras casa al intercambios, siendo esta vez los anfitriones nosotros :)

    En nuestro espacio estamos cultivando alimentos, medicinas y reforestando los alrededores con especies nativas, para atraer la fauna y favorecer los procesos naturales del lugar. Luego elaboramos productos como fermentos, tinturas, jabones, conservas, y muchas cosas más. Nuestra casita es vegetariana, y solo usamos productos biodegradables ya que reusamos las aguas grises.

    Actualmente estamos precisando ayuda para cuidar dos perros muy amorosos y nuestras plantitas durante las dos o tres últimas semanas de Julio.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We love cultural exchange, language exchange, and exploring different cuisines. At home, we teach how to make the natural products we use, such as soap, detergents, ferments, medicines... We offer breakfast and basic ingredients for cooking lunches together. It's crucial to note that ours is a vegetarian household :)

    In our free time, we play pingpong, do slacklining, go to the beach, or take walks in the forest to harvest mushrooms.

    ==============
    Nos encanta el intercambio cultural, de idiomas, de gastronomía. En casa enseñamos a elaborar los productos naturales que usamos, jabón, detergentes, fermentos, medicinas...
    Ofrecemos desayuno e ingredientes básicos para cocinar los almuerzos en conjunto. Es muy importante considerar que es una casa vegetariana :)
    En los tiempos libres jugamos ping-pong, hacemos slackline, vamos a la playa o hacemos caminatas en el bosque para cosechar hongos.
