    Good Host

 Min stay requested: at least 2 weeks

  • Description


    We have an alternative food project and small garden in Llanogrande, outside Medellin. We are both chefs with a catering business and specialty foods: fermentations, kombucha, etc). The house is spacious and you will have your own guest house with internet and a bathroom.

    Duties: Feeding our dog, cats, ducks, fish and chickens. We also need someone who will water all the plants.

    Note: we are about 45 minutes from Medellin, so if you are seeking the city scene, this will not work. We have motorbikes, and there are busses that pass constantly and are only a 2 minute walk from our front door. Plenty of grocery stores and restaurants around.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are both chefs, so we will be cooking daily: fermented foods, kombucha, artisanal meats, etc. We both have lived in Colombia for many years, can speak Spanish, and can help connect you to other communities throughout the country. This department of Colombia is stunningly beautiful, there are many day and weekend trips around, as well as the city itself. Surrounding our house are many more organic farms, in which we are establishing connections to do seed exchanges and classes.

    There are many towns within a twenty minute bus ride away: La Ceja, El Retiro, Llanogrande, San Antonio, Rionegro. An hour away on bus is Medellin. There are many nice walks around, and if you have a motorbike the possibilities are endless. Guatape is a nice day trip. Jerico, Tarso, La Pintada, Salento, Manizales all make great weekend trips.
