Roberto and I (Maria) live on a little farm 100 km from central Buenos Aires, the capital of Argetina. We grow vegetables and share our quiet life with three lovely cats, and a very energetic dog called Tito.
We need help with making and tending to a vegetable garden. There is also a variety of other tasks to help with here for five hours a day.
Neither of us are vegetarian, but I enjoy making and eating vegetarian style dishes. We provide breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks (merienda etc).
Playing tennis at our local club is one of our passions, as well as working and being outdoors.
I have travelled as a workawayer in the past, and enjoyed learning about such different cultures that I decided to do it with my own home.
Smoking is allowed but only outide.

Help in the house
Buenos Aires is a big, cultural city, we have plenty of advice and tips about it. It takes two and a half hours by bus or train from Zarate.
The farm is 15km from Zarate, a busy industrial city with lots of activity. It has plenty of shops, restaurants and bars, we visit it frequently and can offer you lifts as well.
We need a sociable person able to help in the vegetable garden and sometimes with house repairs in Buenos Aires or Costa Del Este. This will include moving furniture around or fixing, as well as potentially painting.
Work in the vegetable garden includes: weeding, planting, tending to and watering the plants.
We are also able to help you in your Spanish if needed, and it will improve our English at the same time!
In exchange, you will be provided with accomodation in a big bedroom shared by the volunteers.
There is a smaller room available with a double bed for couples.
Two bathrooms are available for use by the volunteers.
We offer lifts to Zarate, the nearest city.
And we can give you information about the most important places to see in Buenos Aires.
