My mother and I live in a 4 hectar ranch in the rural area of Vicente Casares, a little town in Cañuelas. It´s 50 km from the capital of Buenos Aires, which is easy to reach by bus.
My mother and I are relaxed and enjoy to share the company of friends and family that come every now and then to ranch. I love nature and have knowledge in organic farming and indian taming. We are looking forward in meeting new friends and share experiences!
We have 7 horses with indian dressage or taming, which is based in the construction of a trust relationship with no violence. We also have one cow, 30 chickens with chicks, three ducks and two geese that live free in the ranch. There are also 4 dogs and 4 cats.
Help in the house

The helpers will learn about the daily and domestic handling of chickens and horses, and about the maintenance tasks of the garden,
In summer, the volunteers can also collaborate in the gastronomic organization for the social events.
The work consist in the following items:
-Cleaning the henhouse and the barn
-Feeding the horses
-Cleaning the swimming pool
-Gardening chores (pruning, stone beds cleaning, sweaping leaves, etc.)

Due to the work chores we look for people that have experience with grass cutting machine and some notion of electricity and construction.
A good physical shape is required and a good attitude and work rithm.
Some days of the year the ranch is used to give weddings or other social events with the possibility to work.
