We are a young colombian/german couple with a four year old son. We decided to built up two lives in two diferent countries and thats why we have recently taken on a finca set up on a beautiful hillside outside of San Gil (5km distance, direction Mogotes, frequent public transportation during the day). The property has a big garden, counts with homegrown fruit all year. We have big plans for the place, including a permaculture garden, natural pool, treeheouse and guesthouse cabins... We need enthusiastic people to come and help! Volunteers that have prior knowledge/skills in building and gardening or permaculture would be perfect, but anyone willing to work is more than welcome!
We are very laid back and also enjoy the surrounding areas as much as the guests, so it's definitely not all about work. We love to get up early, work in the morning and chill out in the afternoon or go to enjoy closeby riversides. We are also well connected with the local spiritual community. It is important to us that volunteers coming here fall in love with this area just as much as we do (every day).

Because we recently bought our own property counting with an old farm house, lots of fruit trees and beautiful views we are working right now a lot in construction and planting or gardening. Right now we are working om building a cabin, a dry toilet and outside shower and fixing the old farm house.
We are also looking for an expert on website creating to develop our Internet presence.
We are offering a place to stay (comfortable bed in the old farmhouse, small shared bathroom and open outdoor jungle shower) and healthy breakfast in exchange for 3 hours of work a day.
We usually cook only vegetarian food. Vegan people are welcome too.

On your time off there is a lot to do in the local area. San Gil itself and the surrounding villages are gorgeous, and it is enjoyable just spending time walking around getting to know the locals. It is also the adventure capital, and so there are plenty of activities to be enjoyed, such as kayaking, climbing, hiking, paragliding, horseback riding. One of the hosts is also a mountainbike guide and caving/canyoning guide, so he appreciates taking the guests on expeditions!
The finca is 5 km out of town and there is access to beautiful walks and viewpoints.
Esta es una buena oportunidad para disfrutar y ayudar a terminar de construir un proyecto de hostel y workaway place. La idea es establecer un lugar para siempre, tener y obtener ayuda de los voluntarios con un trabajo de mutuo beneficio entre el voluntario y el lugar. Es mantener el espacio siempre disponible para que las persona viajeras tengan un hogar en San Gil.
