I´m a 58 years old lawyer who lives next to a very beautiful place next to a lake (Lago Ranco) in the South of Chile. In charge of a group of recreational houses belonging to my family (Brothers, Parents) and myself, I also own a small farm few kms far from where I live, where I use to grow vegetables on an organic basis. This is a touristic place on summer time (December to March), due to the beautiful lake and amazing landscapes and natural woods. Learning to live in balance with nature is an important part of my project.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help with Eco Projects
There´s a lot of places to visit here. If you Google "Lago Ranco, Chile" you will find lots of information. Termal waters, sport fishing (In season time) and an incredible landscape. As long as our property is next to the lake, you can go kayaking or row on a boat. Important is the fact workawayers will be able to be in contact with chilean people and our way of living here in the very south of Chile, including people of the Mapuche etnia. Most important, it is an oportunity to learn how we try to live a good and modern life in armony with nature...
Mainly the help is required to maintain our park and to help in a small farm. Knowledge of organic agriculture will be appreciated.
workawayers would live at my home, a wood cabin with 3 rooms, 2 bathrooms (included hot water provided mainly by solar panel), living room and kitchen. Meals will be provided to workawayers and taken at home. They may be asked to cook or-and make the dishes.
I live in an extremely beautiful place next to a lake,into a well care Park, with beach included. Workawayers will completely enjoy it. There is a bus everyday to the nearest town, Lago Ranco, 15 kms far from here. As long as I´m aware workawayers want to know places, I ´ll show them some interesting places (there´s a lot) to them
