  • Description

    Description

    We have an educational park developed on a base of permaculture and we receive volunteers. It is located in the region of Maule, Chile. Here you can meet and work on permaculture and eco-technologies. We provide in various respects. Those who want to work and learn about permaculture are welcome.

    Please read the following carefully: lately the volunteers who visit us think that permaculture is a lifestyle of little work and much conversation. In the case of our Host we teach two basic aspects: Learning to Read the Landscape and Learn to Feel the Silence, these two basic aspects of the human being is not easy to learn overnight. Our style is based on Fukuoka techniques and many other permaculture masters, ie INTENSITY in learning. We share in Family, the works are varied and interesting, we talk, I give a permaculture book to the volunteer to read during their stay, the works in particular are consensual with the volunteer, nothing is obligatory, everything we teach has a meaning. We even watch movies and go for a walk, when possible. What we deliver to the volunteer is of high quality in every sense. We do not receive volunteers who come to tour, nor do we want volunteers who just come to work, is a balance. The Park is not a common place, so we require adaptation to the new. Any volunteer who wants to learn and collaborate in a small park, welcome.

    Tenemos un parque educativo desarrollado en base a la permacultura y recibimos voluntarios serios, responsables y trabajadores. Está ubicado en la región del Maule, Chile. Acá podrán conocer y trabajar en permacultura y ecotecnologías. Nos autoabastecemos en varios aspectos. Quien quiera trabajar y aprender permacultura bienvenido. Recibimos principalmente a voluntarios que quieran aplicar la permacultura en su vida y mejor aún en su comunidad, por lo cual estamos formando líderes en estas materias.

    Por favor leer bien lo que a continuación comento: últimamente los voluntarios que nos visitan piensan que la permacultura es un estilo de vida de poco trabajo y mucha conversación. En el caso de nuestro Host enseñamos dos aspectos básicos: Aprender a Leer el Paisaje y Aprender a Sentir el Silencio, estos dos aspectos básicos del ser humano no es fácil aprenderlos de la noche a la mañana. Nuestro estilo está basado en las técnicas de Fukuoka y muchos otros Maestros permacultores, es decir INTENSIDAD en el aprendizaje. Compartimos en Familia, los trabajos son variados e interesantes, conversamos, entrego un libro de permacultura al voluntario para que lo lea durante su estadía, los trabajos en particular son consensuados con el voluntario, nada es obligatorio, todo lo que enseñamos tiene un sentido. Incluso vemos películas y salimos a pasear, cuando es posible. Lo que entregamos al voluntario es de alta calidad en todo sentido. No recibimos voluntarios que vengan a turistear, tampoco queremos voluntarios que sólo vengan a trabajar, es un equilibrio. El Parque no es un lugar común, por lo cual requerimos adaptación a lo nuevo. Todo aquel voluntario que quiera aprender y colaborar en un pequeño Parque, bienvenido.
