Covd situation: There is no quarantine requirement or post arrival testing at present. Things are very normal in Mizque and the host has CDS on hand which has been approved as an optional treatment after widespread successful use in Bolivia. We believe in terrain versus germ theory and as such live to strengthen our natural immune systems with sunlight, exercise in the garden and wider surrounds, staying happy, maintaining social connection and upholding important customs and traditions
Simon has been practicing permaculture and natural healing modalities for 15 years on 3 continents. We cultivate diverse organic vegetables and medicinal plants.
We offer space for those that wish to learn practical skills including eco construction, organic farming, seed saving, medicinal plants, alternative healing, healthy eating, yoga and community building.
The farm is situated 15 minutes walk from the plaza principal to the authentic city Mizque, set in a productive valley with a temperate climate. You can interact and experience a strongly Quechua culture and practice your Spanish both on the farm and with the wider community. There are plenty of natural attractions to experience in your free time also.
Three rivers run nearby to swim and some canyons/mountains to explore. The landscape is littered with Incan ruins and fossils revealing the rich history Mizque has.
Jessica is a certified yoga instructor, vegan and an amazing chef.
Simon is a mountain bike guide with bikes available for rent. Tours are offered at a discount to volunteers. The trails are world class.
All you need is an inquisitive mind and a great attitude. That said, we particularly appreciate people with a passion. E.g. dancing, massage, meditation, alternative healing, cooking permaculture, building.. If that says "me" to you then please send me a line.
Our minimum stay for volunteering is three weeks but a month is usually needed to be able to make a good contribution, experience the culture, nature and learn the systems. Exceptions for shorter stay can be made for those taking a tour or a detox treatment. Discounts are available to workaway volunteers.
If you can bring organic seeds this is a great contribution.
