    Description

    Ecological Farm in Puerto Tirol, Chaco - Argentina only 15 km from the capital, Resistencia. Run by a family who are looking for volunteers to help carry out the project by helping with maintaining the land, taking care of the animals and helping out with general tasks involving farming. We have a small amount of animals including pigs, sheep, chickens, ducks, etc. We would like this to be a nature-loving, self-sustainable environment and we are searching for others who believe in this philosophy and would like to share this experience with us!
    Volunteers will be provided with two shared meals per day, and a Guest house with kitchen space (refrigerator included) and bathroom (shower included).
    Because of the nature of our work, we need all volunteers to be committed to staying with us for at least 15 days.
    Our family is composed of Beto, Graciela, Juan Manuel, Veronica, Genaro and our pets "El Negro" y Laguna
    The surrounding area: Resistencia is the closest capitol city (of Chaco). There you can find many places to shop and eat. Corrientes (18 km from Resistencia) is a larger/older city (400 years old), easily accessible by bus from Resistencia. Corrientes is a nice place to visit on the weekends! Here you have beaches (along the paraná river), a beautiful "costanera" path (alongside the river), restaurants, live music, boutiques and many historical/cultural places to sight-see! Currently Corrientes is hosting the famous "chamamé" festival, folk music from Brazil, Paraguay and northern Argentina until January 29th.

    If you decide to stay with us, we would be more than willing to pick you up from the airport or bus station (Corrientes or Resistencia).
    For any further questions feel free to send us an email! We would be happy to hear from you and we hope to meet you soon!
