  • Description


    Hello my name is Anita, Im a Chilean woman who is hoping to live in harmony with nature in my dream spot.
    I just bought a plot of land in Valle del Elqui ( cochiguaz area) chile.I ve always loved the desert. Sun every day of the year ,clear star nights and nature makes the place a dream .
    My idea is to create an autosustentability way of living (planting food, building, carpentry,etc) and maybe start a small bussiness (a lodge, activities, etc) showing people the beauty of the desert.
    Im willing to offer the chance of living permanently in the lot,in exchange of nice, strong and creative people who can help me work the land, built and start a project there.
    This place is perfect for those who want to do healthy nature terapies, planting organic food, sports people who like climbing or anybody with a good attitude who loves this kind of life and takes care of nature
    It is an open proyect im plannig to built on the way, so feel free to offer any skill, never the less, It would be specially helpfull people who has experience in carpentry, farming and building.
    Finally I have a nice cottage for lodging the workawayers, is an independent place with private bathroom, a kitchen an double bed size.
