  • Description


    My name is Nick, born in Argentina but I have Dutch roots. I lived in the Netherlands for 20 years where I had a beach-bar. Now I run a big restaurant in Los Antiguos, a beautiful little city close to the Chilean border in the province Santa Cruz connected to the 2nd biggest lake in South America 'Lago Buenos Aires'. This village is famous for it's red fruits especially the cherry. Summer is warm and sunny but winters are cold and snowy. Tourism is high in beginning of the summer and during summer.
    Besides my restaurant I own a big piece of land where I grow organic fruits and vegetables that I can use for the restaurant. I am also planning to build a house/cabana out of organic materials. At the moment I am also building a normal house next to the land that need to be finished.
    For mainly spring and summer I would like to have enthusiastic, hands-on volunteers to help me on the agricultural land and building the organic cabana.
