    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We´re motivated to receive people to share this project because we understand that building in a participatory way benefits all of us, there is a lot of learning and exchange in it. We believe that thinking and shaping a home says a lot about the ways of living we have, what we prioritize and value. We imagine it will be fun to do it together and that there will be plenty of space to chat and get to know each other in the process.

    You could also practice / improve your Spanish, learn more about our culture and we colud learn together different techniques of bioconstruction, carpentry and garden work.


    Nos motiva recibir personas para compartir este proyecto dado que entendemos que construir de forma participativa beneficia a todas las partes, hay mucho aprendizaje e intercambio en ello. Creemos que pensar y dar forma a un hogar habla mucho de las formas de habitar que tenemos, lo que priorizamos y valoramos. Imaginamos que será divertido hacerlo juntos y que habrá mucho espacio para conversar y conocernos en el proceso.

    Podrías además de practicar/mejorar tu español, saber más de nuestra cultura y conocer junto con nosotros diferentes técnicas de bioconstrucción, carpintería de obra y trabajo de jardinería.

    I'm here to invite you to get to know the area where I live, El Tesoro (in La Barra - Maldonado, Uruguay) while you help us with different projects that we have ahead. I tell you, together with my partner Rafael, we are starting to build our home, there are a lot of beautiful activities that we have in mind for this new stage. We´d like to build mainly under the bioconstruction concepts, we also think about a garden space, condition the space around it, several more things that will emerge. Having support and sharing this stage with more people would be great for us. We invite you to know more about the next steps if you have plans to walk in this area, also to investigate the beautiful places that you could visit here.

Te cuento, junto con mi compañero Rafael, estamos empezando a construir nuestro hogar, hay un montón de lindas actividades que tenemos en mente para esta nueva etapa. Quisiéramos construir principalmente siguiendo conceptos de bioconstrucción, también pensar en un espacio de huerta, acondicionar el espacio alrededor, y varias cosas más que irán surgiendo. Contar con apoyo y compartir esta etapa con más personas sería genial para nosotros. Te invitamos a saber más acerca de los próximos pasos si tienes planes de andar por esta zona, también a investigar los hermosos lugares que podrías conocer por aquí.
