  • Description

    Description

    City: El Bolson
    Province: Rio Negro
    Type of property: organic farm / Chacra orgánica
    Size (ha): 7.3
    Crops: sheep, chickens, bees, vegetables, fruit trees
    We speak: English, Spanish
    Description: We are looking for a responsible volunteer to carry out assorted farm work, including occasionally operating a chainsaw and a weed-whacker. In particular, if you know how to operate and maintain a chainsaw (moto sierra), we'll be eager to have you with us any time of the year. As well, we could use help with house work, translation from English to Spanish, and website development. This is not a commercial farm, but an effort to achieve a certain degree of food self-sufficiency. We prefer someone who is very good with his/her hands. We only have room for ONE volunteer at a time.
    Descripcion: Estamos buscando un voluntario responsable para llevar a cabo trabajos surtidos de granja , incluyendo ocasionalmente operar una moto sierra y una moto guadaña. En particular, si sabes cómo operar y mantener una moto sierra, estaremos ansiosos de tenerte con nosotros en cualquier momento del año. También, podríamos utilizar la ayuda con el trabajo de la casa, la traducción del inglés al español, y el desarrollo del sitio Web. Esto no es una granja comercial, sino un esfuerzo para alcanzar un cierto grado de autosuficiencia alimentaria. Preferimos a alguien que sea muy bueno con sus manos. Sólo tenemos espacio para un SOLO voluntario a la vez.

    The farm is strikingly beautiful, in a rural area 15 km north of the town of El Bolsón. There is a bus service to town three times a day. If you are a conscientious person, like clean air, eating some organic foods, hiking, canoeing, or beautiful vistas, you might enjoy staying with us for a while.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is plenty to do here on your time off! Sit and enjoy the beauty and the quiet. Walk out the door and head to the mountains and refugios. We are a few minutes walk to a small river and swimming hole. El Bolson is an interesting town, full of things to do and of course the famous art feria three times a week. We go to town two to three times a week and we can always make arrangements for volunteers to come along. We have a bus that is nearby, but you need to walk a bit to get to it, so it's much easier to come with us.
