  • Help


    Right now we need help with construction, mainly woodwork, knowledge of bioconstruction and permaculture, electricity, etc would be appreciated, but not required, we also have a tiny vegetable garden that needs help.

    We are now building a wooden reciprocal structure that will lately become our livingroom/ kitchen.
    For our workaway team we need people that are handy with woodwork tolls and would be able to handle construction tasks, we are about to start building earh walls anytime now.
    we also need someone to help us with cleaning and house organisation, household activities in general, cooking (vegan)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    our place is located by a beautiful beach really close to main turistic spots like punta del este and piriapolis, we usually surf when conditions are good so you might want to join us, transportation is good since we are close to main highway, so you can go spend the day either in punta del este or piriapolis, we are also close enough to montevideo and some beaches of Rocha like la paloma. (about 100km from both places) and about 80 km from minas where you can visit villa serrana ( a nice village located at lavalleja´s hills).
    so sauce de portezuelo, is a strategic spot if you want to visit main south east cities but still stay in a quiet and natural place.
