We are a Uruguyan/ German couple that lives in the beautiful Eastern part of Uruguay. We live on a small farm close to the beach town of La Paloma (18km) and the capital of the state Rocha (also named Rocha) is about the same distance (17km).
We are still in the process of settling down, so there is quite some work to do. Currently we are setting up our (organic) vegetable garden and are about to plan the construction of another building.
We live here with our Dalmatian Mitra, the cat Cara and our two horses Luna and Sereno.
If you come while we are here; as we are vegetarians you will have to adapt to our diet :-) and if you are here while we are away we ask you to cook vegetarian as well :-) as it is part of our life style.
We are looking for people (25 and older) that like to work in nature, use their hands and enjoy a simple life.

As we speak several languages between the two of us (Chinese, English, French,Spanish and Portuguese) there is no need for you to speak Spanish but it is an ideal place to learn or improve your Spanish skills. We already had people staying with us (before registering here) and what they told us was that they liked the way how they could study the language. We love music, hence do play some instruments and like singing. On the other hand we do like silence as well: we do meditate every day. You are most welcome to join us in our activities.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
The kind of work that we need help with depends much on the season and weather conditions. What we are looking for is people with an pro active attitude, able to listen to indications and not shy to ask if they need another explanation.
Daniel works a lot in carpentry so if you like to work with wood and know what you are doing that would be a great advantage.

Depending on the weather situation you can set up your tent (there´s plenty of space:-) or we can offer you a a fully furnished cabin by the ocean - in this case you will need to get out to our campo for work. In which we may need to arrange work times differently (not as depicted above 4-5hs/ day but instead whole working days and then a couple of days off).
Although we are not living in a city that does not mean we are not connected to the world ... we have a stable internet connection, so if you need the internet that is not a problem.
