    #* Volunteers needed from 21st of August until 29th of October or any time inbetween! *#

    Hey! I am a German Girl who fell in love with a Chilean Man! I am Civil Engineer and carpenter! My boyfriend is a carpenter too! Not long time ago i moved to chile and right now we will start forming our lifes here on an 8 hectar land and farmhouse together!
    We have some horses, chicken a dog and soon an pig!
    Danilo has 2 kids who are with us around 2-3 days a week! Julian is 8 years old and Vincent 6. Vincent is disabled and his development a little bit late so he needs lots of love and atention, but he is a very sunny boy and laughes all day long!
    Our hobby is to go for a ride in the afternoons to enjoy the beautiful nature of the Andes around our home! We love our life on the countryside, enjoy the great view, enjoy a cup of wine in the afternoons and more we love to welcome volunteers in our home to know other cultures and get known of new people!

    We would like to invite open minded nice people to become part of our small family in the heart of the beautiful countryside of chile!
    Our dream to have our own house and land here in chile finally came true! So right now we are working a lot to form our piece of land in what we would imagine our dream house and land! In the spring we started building a vegetable garden, we need to build some fences, cut the grass, and do all kind of work outside!
    Our next proyects will be to build a stable for the horses and some other small woodworking things! This August/September we want to plant some trees and plants to have nice fruits and veggies for the summer! As well we finally plant grass around the house and at the meadow of the horses so we need to fix all watering systems for the summer time when there is no rain. so we definitly need helping hands, good mood and creativity to finish everything!
    As in every house and family there are as well moments we need to organize thing, clean up or wash the dishes so we expect every volunteer to be part of this as well.
    More over you can help us to take care of our animals like our chickens, our dogs Canela and Mosca, our cow and of cause our horses!
    In the afternoon you are free to go for a ride, go for a hike or visit our tiny village! When i go to the „bigger“ city linares to go for grocery shoping you will have the oportunity to join me to discover the city and see new places!
    As well it could be that you join danilo to his work as a carpenter, so you can learn abput wood working and construction.
    Or it could be that you will have to look for the kids an hour or two, to cook the family meal etc!
    Normally every day here is diferent and any volunteer who comes to help us can work in what he knows to do best or has the oportunity to learn lots of new stuff!
