  • Description


    **Please contact me in Spanish**
    At this moment I am starting with a personal project in which I grow different products organically, it all started because I wanted to take advantage of a large space that I have at the back of my house in Chía, Cundinamarca. So far I have already worked on establishing the necessary conditions of the land for planting, and I started a few weeks ago to sow the first products.

    En este momento estoy iniciando con un proyecto personal en el cual siembro diferentes productos de manera orgánica, todo inició ya que quise aprovechar un amplio espacio que tengo en la parte trasera de mi casa en Chía, Cundinamarca. Hasta el momento ya trabajé en establecer las condiciones necesarias del terreno para la siembra, y empecé hace unas semanas a sembrar los primeros productos.

  • Help


    At the moment I am starting with an organic crop in my house and I need a little help in some tasks such as irrigation and maintenance of the crop, planting seeds and harvesting crops. I'm starting with lettuce, Creole potatoes, peas, carrots, among others. The help is needed in the morning hours from 6:00 am - 10:30 am or from 3:30 pm - 7:00 pm (sometimes the hours may be less, it all depends on the work that the crop requires).
