    Volunteering/ Coming projects

    We are currently helping on the restructuration of our center in Puerto Viejo, where we develop (for now as the situation dont permit us to run all the activities mantioned below) new activities like our aquaponic system and mushroom cultivation project that still needs some impulse and a pationate one that would like to grow this project. Situeted on the roofs of the project of Puerto Viejo tu shade the place and use all the place disponible tu fitt this urban project.
    Some natural bambu construction left and planting/maintaning the space, feed the tilapias we use to add the nutriments of our bamboo aquaponic system.

    We help in the development of workshops for the manufacturing / transformation of natural and recycled fibers to make paper and different natural composites so as a forging workshop.

    We offer Workawayers a minimum of 4h a day and 2 day off.
    As some workshops require more time and we help all day so if you come to learn you can do more hours.
    Food is not inclueded outside the greens starting to produce or what we get for free from the farm.

    Thanks for your interest, hope to see you around even if it is just a few days to feel the vibe!
    Any questions feel free to contact us or check the website !
