    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    true rural cochabamba experience, the food, the language, and the countryside with a clear vision of organic production.

  • Help


    we usually need help with the peaches, olives, apples and avocados. we have to attend the parcels and prepare the soil, control the weeds, a bit of gardening and to prune/rake the acacia "forest".
    the hens and the llamas need attention the whole year, the pets also like to have some extra care. we are eager to receive people with carpentry skills, since we have a lot of wooden projects (in the house, in the garden, mainly with recycled pieces of wood).
