    Hello volunteer people.
    We are Fernando and Liesbeth. We are a couple of Chilean and Dutch, with no children living anymore with us.

    We love to enjoy life, share with friends, travelling, getting to know new places and, of course, giving ourselves the space to chill and relax.

    Fernando is a marine biologist of the region of Aysen Patagonia.
    Liesbeth is a mime artist who lived in Chile for 35 years and worked for the UN (UNESCO)

    two years ago we bought a country house in Algarrobito (5300 meters square) at the beginning of El Valle de Elqui.10 km from the La Serena city. We also have a swimming pool.

    Our intention is to have 1 or 2 persons who will collaborate in our project. We are looking for enthusiastic people; professionals or technicians, like carpenters, agricultural technicians and theatre people. Especially carpenters and painters who can help us, .you only need to be able to work with a shovel, hammer and so on.
