    Good Host
  • Descripción


    I have a Homestead at the beginning of the south of Chile (pre Andes), South America where I need help to maintain the place, from November to April. i have a large orchard, small vegetable organic garden, some sheep, dogs, trees..Lots of things to repair, trees to prune, prepare for winter.
    I need people who know how to work in the country, age 30+ Intelligent, clean, good worker, conscious about environment, interested in the culture of my country. For me this is a cultural exchange plus a tremendous help to me in my homestead.
    This is not a holiday place . It is an interchange. I don't give wine, cigarettes, coffee, expensive foods. We eat very well but simple foods.(2 meals a day+ lodging),
    If the voluntarios need specialty foods, they can bring them (no smoking in the house or workshop) The work is 5 hours, depending on the job. 5 days a week, but if the voluntario wants to go camping, or get to know the area, they can take 2-3 days off. I don't give food when they go to do this...of course.
    I give a clean bed and large room. Even though the place is humble i expect the voluntario to leave it clean and the bed made when they leave. It is a lot of work for me to have a voluntario so I expect help. I can not teach how to garden or do anything. I can train and the volunteer will work with me or/and my workers who is great.
    Please tell me if you have any allergies. We have animals and a lot of grass.
    I show the volunteers my town and surrounding area and whatever is going on culturally that might be of interest to them. It is a gorgeous area with mountains, lakes, rivers and very pastoral.
    I prefer to receive planetary conscious volunteers.
    A volunteer for me is a person who is interested in my culture. Please respect our culture and don't judge.
    We start at 8am.
    Please do not ask to go to town every day.

  • Ayuda


    repairs, maintenance, garden work. Some construction. Reparing road. Pruning. Cutting a tree here and there, fixing road after a rain, etc.
    Whatever is going on in my place
    I have a worker who works 8 hours a day and if we have a project we finish it. I work too and i am 70years old. The volunteers can go and visit the surrounding area any time they want. I live 6kms from town which is not far but it is quite a bit of walking
    Also it takes some time to train a volunteer . A volunteer should be a help, not a burden
    Please don't contact me if you are not going to participate in our way of life. Thanks

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    I prefer people who are conscious about the Planet and its beings.
    I am an environmentalist and in some measure I work for the planet and its beings.
    Please be a good worker. It is unsettling to have my worker busy and the volunteer stop work every half an hour.
    Please do not give my worker alcohol
    I could have a person or couple for 1 year
