We are an international family building an eco house in Tunuyan (Mendoza). We are a french-argentinian couple with a beautiful 2 years-old daughter. We live in Tunuyan for a few month already and we want to improve our place.
We are dedicated to vegan food and permaculture living. The place we live is very beautiful, quiet and green, with a lot a fruit trees and also some animals sharing our daily life.
We are looking for dynamic and motivated people who like to do and learn a lot of different things. People who want to participate in good projects and activities, and who wish to share their experiences and skills.
It's better if the volunteers have skills with using tools and construction machines.
Actualy, we need help to finish the house which is made with dirt. We are making our best to have an eco-logic place to leave. Our home is wonderfuly beautiful, full of trees, animals, art... We would be greatful to receive people ready to help with our project!
We are located in Tunuyan, a quiet and beautiful neighborhood near Mendoza. There are plenty of things to do around: wine bodegas, mountains, lakes and rivers, riding, trekking, hiking… A lot of lovely places are very near by our place: Cacheuta, Potrerillos, Mendoza center, Aconcagua, Uspallata… You will never get bored !

We can host two volunteers maximum at a time.

The volunteers have their oun private room with a small bathroom and a small kitchen to prepare a lunch. The shower is in another bathroom which is shared. we just ask the volunteers to keep their room tidy and clean.
We have an Internet connection.
We provide two meals a day, breakfast and lunch. The others (diner, alcohol, snack…) are the volunteers’s responsibility. We are a vegan family so all our meals are vegans. All we cook is made with love, and is very tasty. Most of our ingredients are organic.
