    Description

    Hi, I'm Olga, I live with my mother and 3 friends more, Monita, David and Josephine outside of Cunco, about 4 kms away, a pre-mountain town in the south east of Temuco (IXRegion) Chile, surrounded by beautiful natural attractions such as Lake Colico and Lake Caburgua, very near Melipeuco (international highway, towards Argentina) where we find the Llaima volcano, Conguillio National Park and among other wonders the Mapuche culture.
    We are trying to rescue and conserve this beautiful landscape, saving it from the forest steamroller.
    We have flock of sheep, birds like ducks chickens, fruit trees, we are also creating an organic garden, cultivation of medicinal herbs ,,,
    We also have a beautiful Biocontruction project with recycled materials.
    The activities are varied according to the season.
