  • Description


    We are a sustainable project in Rio azul El Bolson. We have a big garden, animals, many natural building projects, and a summer-time farm to table resturant and campground.

    If you are willing to be staying in this beautiful and unique area of Bolson do not hesitate in contacting us. We are a young Argentinian- American couple. Both speak english and Spanish.

    We provide all the basic food and have two voulnteer houses each with its own kitchen and living space. Depending on the time of year and number of volunteers we have, voulnteers might also have to sleep in a tent but will always have access to the kitchen of one of the houses.

    From the Months of August-November

    The work is focused on construction, gardening, repairing or improving of existing projects, and building Eco systems, like solar hot water showers.

    We ask our voulnteers to stay for a minimum of 2 weeks and will give priority to people who can stay longer. The best experiences are when voulnteers really can connect with the place, project and us; that takes time.

    From the months of December-March

    Our farm to table resturant and campground opens in December! It is very important for us to have responsible and friendly voulnteers to work with us. The daily task will be helping to run the garden (harvesting what we need for the resturant, weeding, and watering), organizing our recycling center, and helping keep the grounds watered and looking good.

    We ask our voulnteers for a minimum stay of one month but would ideally like one person or a couple/friends a who is interested in staying for all or most of the season. If you are interested in how to start and run a sustainable business in an environmentally conscious way this would be an amazing opportunity.

    ** We also have a 2 year old son. If someone is looking to be a nanny in a beautiful place and has experience with child development we are open to ideas!**
