    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here you can learn about renewable energy and bioconstruction. Surely you can participate with our social life and ways of living. To live very near the sea gives volunteers a clear idea about Uruguaian life and culture.

    Aqui puedes aprender sobre energía renovable y bioconstrucción. Seguramente puedes participar con nuestra vida social y nuestros modales. Vivir muy cerca del mar les da a los voluntarios una idea clara sobre la vida y la cultura uruguaya.

    This is an eco-tourism project. The entire place works on solar energy and extracts water from 75m below the complex.

    Our two biggest needs right now are WOODWORKING and a CHEF for the busy months of our summer.

    WOODWORKING: We built a majority of the buildings, the tables, and the chairs and we'd like someone to help us with building new furniture along with maintaining what we currently have. We have a woodworking area right on the complex. You can spend part of the day creating and the other part at the beach or exploring the local area.

    CHEF: In our busy season, we have a restaurant on site to feed our guests. We are in need of a chef for this upcoming summer (starting in December 2019) who is excited about cooking for our amazing guests. Since we have 5 domes, the meals can be for up to 10-12 people depending on how many guests we have. We have a full kitchen available to the chef and would love to work with you on the best menu to offer. Please reach out and let us know what cooking experience you have and what you would love to cook for our guests!

    We also need your help to maintain this beautiful place, sometimes helping with the guests, sometimes with gardening, sometimes with general maintenance of the complex.

    Necesitamos su ayuda para mantener este hermoso lugar, a veces ayudando con los clientes y, a veces con la jardinería.

    Volunteers will sleep in a shareable room inside the complex. The room will only be shared with other volunteers, not more than 3. Food and the use of the space will be available, and all the Atlantic sea to enjoy. We also have space for tents available on the premises.

    Los voluntarios tendrán una habitación compartida para dormir, comida y el uso de todo el complejo estará disponible. Ademas de poder disfrutar de la playa y el mar Atlantico.
