Hi, I´m Diego. Born and raised in Patagonia,I grew up working at my family´s fishing lodge.Now,I work as a Tourist guide all over the region of Aysen and I live on a piece of land which we want to transform into an ecological farm, using as much recycled materials for construction as we can. As i spend a lot of time out of the house due my travelling, I need people who help me maintain the place and take care of the animals as well as improve it with their own ideas. You should enjoy spending your day outside with the animals and be creative and responsible when it comes to work.
My house stands on a piece of land near Coyhaique which we share with a pig,a horse,some chicken and a happy family of dogs- so far,as the place is growing and we are planning to bring more animals. We also have greenhouses and a garden which we build with the help of our workawayers only a couple of months ago,and we can already eat our homeground food.
Besides helping me with my farm, I want you to experience Patagonia in every sense. this means working the earth with your hands and improvising a lot , but also relaxing together afterwards while having some mate cups or one of our famous barbecues. Wherever you go around here,there are beautiful landscapes awaiting you and I will be happy to help you if you want to travel around the region.
Work here is very diverse as we are still constructing the place. Everyone has to help wherever is needed, but don't be shy to come forward with your own ideas.
The most important tasks of every day life is taking care of the animals and plants (watering,picking weeds,planting),then there is always some building or fixing work to do. We also recycle bottles which we turn in to glasses ,lamps,ashtrays or whatever might occur to you!
We take care of the cleaning,cooking and maintaining of the house together . Everyone needs to help, so everybody can enjoy sharing this experience.
