    Description

    My name is Giancarlo and I run a farm project in Piura with my family.

    The farm is located 12 km outside the city, in the road to Chulucanas. We have 8 hectares, a house and animals like ducks, turkeys, hens, cuyes, rabbits and more.


    Our project means to try to create an autosustentable farm, working hard to get our own food (animals and vegetables) and at the same time we try to help the environment with the reforestation of the desert which means to take care of native trees we have.

    We are looking for volunteers who enjoy to spend time in the farm, help with the activities and share a great experience with a local family.

    We need all kind of help.

    Currently we don't work with employees, just my family (parents and siblings)
