    Description

    My name is Adriano. I own a little farm, 170 km away from the Capital City, in a tiny town (800 inhabitants) coasting La Plata River. We work on the organic farm: bees, trees, plants, greenhouse, chickens. Wood and mud construction and its maintenance.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will learn about organic cultives: plants and trees, gardening. Permaculture beekeeping. How to raise chickens. Also about mud construction, carpentry and masonry.
    Obviously the traveller will learn (if he dont know yet) spanish language, besides of tipical uses and customs from Buenos Aires countryside, like ¨mate¨ and ¨asado¨
    Our farm is located in a very wild place, so the interaction with the nature is intense. There are a lot of animals, insects, and plants here.

    One of my priorities is to finish the guest house so I can offer an in side place. For the moment, at summer, we are offering campsite and a big tent while the guest house is on works.
    I take care about breakfast and lunch, and can provide some vegetables for self cooking. There is a beautiful place for making fire. There, travelers can cook anytime. Ussually we cook and eat together.
    While the new bathroom is on works, I offer to share the house bathroom that has hot shower.
    We have electricity, and there is wifi. In the area is really difficult to connect to internet for there is no signal.
    Of course, travelers can make a responsable use of our washing machine.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The town where we live is located in a ¨UNESCO ¨ biosphere reserve so the landscapes are wanderfull anywhere. The plate river is 1.5 kilometers from here. We offer free bikes for travellers, the public transport is not the best but by now we have 3 busses per day (go & back)
