    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Volunteers will live in a multicultural family fluent in Spanish, English, French and Portuguese.
    Three generations live here.
    We include our volunteers in practically all our social interactions with friends and neighbors and we usually eat our three meals a day with the volunteers who share in the cooking and cleaning up.

  • Help

    Help

    We have been using volunteers from other organizations for the last 8 years.
    Just recently we have begun using Workaway.
    We look for volunteers who have expertise and experience in organic farming, We are not interested in teaching volunteers about gardening, we want to learn from them. Therefore, the ideal candidate (s) is a mature person.

    If you are interested in working on our farm, please give us details of your experience working on organic farms or mention other relevant skills such as carpentry, food canning etc.
