    Description

    Hi! Please check the calendar before writing to us, we are always updating it to inform you if we need help or not. Thanks

    Hello, we are Cristina (39) and Oscar (46) we live in a village in the municipality of Gachetá (Cundinarmarca); We decided to change our routine life in the city to live peacefully in the countryside. We live in a farm where we are starting to grow organically for our consumption and for sale, we like animals very much, we have a cat (Luna) and a dog (Paloma).
    Oscar is a musician, Cristina plastic artist, and we are vegetarians :)
    Gachetá is the capital of the province of Guavio, located east of Cundinamarca 110km from Bogotá is a mountainous area with beautiful landscapes.
    If you like to work in the field, integrate with communities, animals, the exercise (Oscar is very athletic and can take you hiking or cycling) and live in peace, you are welcome to our house.

    Hola, somos Cristina (39) y Oscar (47) vivimos en una vereda en el municipio de Gachetá (Cundinarmarca); decidimos cambiar nuestra vida rutinaria en la ciudad para vivir con tranquilidad en el campo. Vivimos en una finca en donde estamos empezando a cultivar de forma orgánica tanto para nuestro consumo como para vender, nos gustan mucho los animales, tenemos una gata (Luna) y una perrita (Paloma).
    Oscar es músico, Cristina artista plástica, y somos vegetarianos :)
    Gachetá es la capital de la provincia del Guavio, ubicada al oriente de Cundinamarca a 110km de Bogotá es una zona montañosa con lindos paisajes.
    Si te gusta trabajar en el campo, integrarte con las comunidades, los animales, el ejercicio (Oscar es muy deportista y puede llevarte a hacer caminatas o montar en bici) y vivir tranquilo, eres bienvenido a nuestra casa.

    We would like you to help us in the field work, sometimes we have to clean the fields, enlist the land for crops, planting, cutting wood, painting .. etc, Here we all work on the same, basically we would like to include you in our daily tasks.


    You could also help us walking with Paloma a few kilometers, because she gets bored a little at home and she likes to go for a walk, walks up to 8 km / h daily.
    The idea is that you help us 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon. The volunteer in our house is for a maximum of 8 days. If you need to stay longer we cannot receive you.

También podrías ayudarnos caminando con Paloma algunos kilómetros, pues ella se aburre un poco en casa y le gusta salir a pasear, camina hasta 8 km/h diarios.
    La idea es que nos ayudes 2 horas en la mañana y 2 horas en la tarde. El voluntariado en nuestra casa lo pensamos para máximo 8 días. Si necesitas quedarte más tiempo no podemos recibirte.
