    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will be working meters from the river Atuel, it's a typical Cuyo country side way of life you should discover... And must of all it's an opportunity to learn with us as much as you can on building an Earthship.

  • Help


    Any help from the construction to planting trees. We will begin the construction of the EartShip from scratch this summer, so it begins with preparing a camp and then begin the construction itself.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The site is 17 km South of downtown San Rafael, there few buses (Iselin to Malvinas) but we can pick you up easily. The site is close to "valle grande" where you can practise most of river and climbing sports. We have our own access to this river directly from the site.
