  • Description


    Hello everyone, our Eco Hostal is looking for volunteers to follow the construction of a guadua maloka. the foundations are ready, the guadua is cut and I need arms to lift the structure! The 3 hectare farm is attached to the very rich town of San Carlos de Antioquia, Colombia. Here my children and I live with various animals, we grow organically and take care of the water and the forest. 2 years ago I opened the hostel in a bio-construction house and the maloka that I am building will be dedicated to hosting several workshops on permaculture, healing, women's fences and more ethical and conscious activities. If you dare to learn construction and participate in my project contact me!

    hola todos,

    Eco Hostal esta buscando voluntarios para seguir una construcción de una maloka en guadua.
    las fundaciones estan listas, la guadua esta cortada y necesito brazos para levantar la estructura!

    La finca de 3 hectareas esta pegada al pueblo muy rico de San Carlos de Antioquia, Colombia.
    Aqui vivimos mis hijos y yo con varios animales, cultivamos en orgánico y cuidamos el agua y el bosque.
