  • Description

    Description

    This is a family business that works under the principle of Permaculture. Permaculture is as its name implies, the Culture of the Permanent, in this sense it prioritizes reuse and recycling as fundamental principles. The serial production of articles and merchandise in all areas has made our life DISPOSABLE, accumulating large amounts of garbage that accumulates unnecessarily and causes health problems and pollution in the environment.

    We, in contrast, believe in a world where waste, and its responsible management, can organize our consumption habits and pose a new way of relating to our environment. In this way, the concepts of REUTILIZATION, RECYCLING, TRANSFORMATION, RENEWAL, EXCHANGE, BALANCE, pose a new and friendly link to continue feeding respect for one's own life and Mother Earth. We work in Bio Building, Agroecology, Technological Innovation and Furniture Manufacturing.

    We are beggining a project based in Permaculture. We'd be pleased to receive people interested in Bio Building. No experience needed! We have to build our first cabin in new land, but don't worry, you will have nice accommodation in a cabin nearby. We will not ask for any fee or payment from the volunteers.

    We believe in multiple knowledge and community working. In that respect, the cooking work along the week is shared by everyone. We will provide food to make breakfast and lunch, but you will have your days assigned to cook. Also the project it's mean to configure a experience based in agro ecology. We already have coffee plants, also orange and tangerine trees. We are heading to improve their productivity.

    Accommodation

    You will going to stay in a cabin that has one bathroom, with toilet, hot shower and sink. The kitchen has an electric oven and electric kettle and a fridge. We have enough cups and dishes to feed almost 50 people. You will have access to food, water and beverages. We have an open dinning room, with roof but no walls, it's lovely! with a wood structure. We have one big bedroom separated of the bathroom, kitchen and dining room. It's equipped with matress, blankets and pillows, it's like camping but with upgrades! All the accommodations have potable water and electricity. You also have a big camping area, near the dining room.

    This accommodation it's 2 kilometers from the town of Coroico and 7 kilometers from the place of the project. We are working now to set an accommodation in the same place of the project, and that's why we want your help. In this first stage of the project you will have to pay a daily ticket of 1.5 $ us during work days. When the first cabin is ready, at the project site, this daily ticket is cut in half if you want to go to the nearest town that is 5 kilometers away from the place of the project. You will have to pay this ticket in public transportation because the place of work is 7 kilometers away from the site of accomodation, and it is not in our possibilities to cover this item.
