My name is Agustin , I am the little son of an Argentinean farmer family with my woman Gisela (a catalan girl in Patagonia) and my little daughter Flurina, we're building a WOOD and ADOBE house very close to San Martin de los Andes in the north of Patagonia.
My great grandfather came from Europe hundred years ago and settler/work this area with milk cows and horses. Nowadays this is a business family, Horseback Ridings in Parque Nacional Lanin (a high volcano in the area) near San Martin de los Andes. Since 1985 my father is a special horse guide and he has built a small farmer with 40 horses, 28 sheep, 50 hens and 7 dogs, also we have honeycombs, handmade marmalades and leather work.
Very close to the farmer we star in November 2016 a new building, that we hope will be our house in the future!
This is our 3rd summer of buildind and we hope one time more, volunteers LIKE YOU will enjoy this experience: ONLY WRITE US!
