We are a mixed family: Noa is French-Venezuelan born in Israel, she is a chemical engineer. Cristian is Argentinian, and he is a Football (soccer) HeadCoach. We have a lovely 3-year-old daughter. (Si tu es français, stp écris-moi en français)
We met in Buenos Aires, and decided to leave our jobs in order to travel a few months. We decided to settle down in Los Cocos, in Cordoba (Argentina) in order to auto-construct our natural earth house. We have an eco garden, a horse to take care of, and we are just starting a new natural house for my father and future volunteers right in our own land.
Los Cocos is a charming mountain village. It is near La Cumbre and Capilla del Monte, famous for hiking, paragliding, and biking. Here you can have time to go to the rivers, do some yoga in a very quiet and green environment, take a walk and feel the nature around. You can also enjoy a night dinner out in La Cumbre or Capilla del Monte, where there are nice coffees and typical restaurants.
We have received over 90 volunteers while building our own house, and the experience was great, this is the reason why we would love to continue receiving people willing to learn about natural building, eco-garden, permaculture and slow living.
We speak Spanish, French and English.
DIY and building projects
Help with Eco Projects
Help around the house
You will learn about different natural building techniques, but most of all you will learn about living with others, being part of an international family, and trusting yourself in order to live your dreams.
Your main activity will be helping us with the construction of a natural earth house. Other tasks can be gardening, taking care of the horse, and helping with family cooking.
We are providing accommodation in a Earthship next to our house. If the weather is nice, you can also sleep in a tent near the new house under construction.
You should bring your own sleeping bag.
We will cook and eat together in our house as much as possible.
All meals are included.
We will work around 4 hours a day, 5 days a week. During your time off you can go hiking, take a "siesta", go for a walk, take a bus to visit close villages, go for a weekend in San Marcos Sierras, take a dive in the nearby rivers, go for a bike ride, etc...
