    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We expect volunteers to have fun while still being able to recognise the importance of the help that we do. We are looking for someone who can complete the given tasks in an efficient, independent, and timely manner, who takes pride in their work, and who is looking to be a part of a team. Volunteers should enjoy the work and have a positive attitude and be keen on learning.

    We offer free internet access, free guest kitchen with a healthy breakfast (coffee, milk tea, croissants, toast and jam), lunch on working days (often with fresh, organic vegetables from our garden), weekly washing machine use, and more, including a temporary invitation into our lives.

It is the ideal placement for those volunteers who are looking for a unique work-holiday experience in a friendly, open, and engaging atmosphere. This opportunity is based on cultural exchange: you can enjoy a glimpse of Colombian farm life through daily interaction with our family, farm animals, and guests. It is the chance to learn about gardening, animal care, and the inner-workings of a hospitality start-up business.


    Esperamos que los voluntarios se diviertan al tiempo que reconocen la importancia de lo que hacemos aquí. Estamos buscando a alguien que pueda completar las tareas de manera eficiente, independiente y oportuna, que se enorgullezca de su trabajo y que busque formar parte de un equipo. Los voluntarios deben disfrutar del trabajo y tener una actitud positiva y estar dispuestos a aprender.

    Ofrecemos acceso gratuito a Internet, cocina de huéspedes gratuita con un desayuno nutritivo (café, té con leche, croissants, tostadas y mermelada), almuerzo en días laborables, semanal uso de lavadora, y más, incluyendo una invitación temporal a nuestras vidas. Es la ubicación ideal para aquellos voluntarios que buscan una experiencia única de trabajo y vacaciones en un ambiente agradable, abierto y atrapante. Esta oportunidad se basa en el intercambio cultural: puede disfrutar de una visión de la vida en una granja colombiana a través de la interacción diaria con nuestra familia, animales de granja y huéspedes. Es la oportunidad de aprender sobre jardinería, cuidado de animales y el funcionamiento interno de un negocio de hostelería.
