  • Descripción


    We are a Belgian-Colombian couple living in a small farmers village in the Colombian Andes. We have a small ecological farm and a social-ecological Foudation where we mostly work with children and youth around education and environment.
    Our house is on like an island between two rivers that is why our farm is called Dos Quebradas.
    We have three dogs, a cat and some chickens. Drinking water is from a natural source nearby. We have a vegetable garden where we try to grow our own crops. Our objective is autosuficient living and permaculture.
    In the village we manage a foundation. Our biggest project is the casa cultural (community center) located fifteen minutes away from the finca. The foundation´s objective is improve the quality of life of the inhabitants in balance with mother earth.

    One of the mayor tasks is the vegetable garden where you can make contact with the earth in a meditative way. And general maintenance/building tasks around the farm.
    We are open for any creative and artistic ideas you could have to beautify the house and its surroundings. We are planning various construction projects around the property.
    At the casa cultural you can participate in creative workshops with the children or teach english and also general maintenance of the classrooms.

  • Alojamiento


    Alongside one of the rivers we built a little wooden cabin almost completely out of recycled materials. There is one queensize bed and a sofabed, for which we offer clean cheats and blankets and if needed extra sleeping mats and matresses. If you have your own tent, you can pitch it up beside the cabin. In the garden there is a firepit near the river when you want to relax and enjoy yourself. The bathroom with dry toilet and the kitchen are located in the main house. It is important for us that you feel welcome like it was your own home.
    We offer two meals a day, evenings and weekends you provide for yourself or we make arrangements to cook as a family. You have access to water, coffee and tea the whole day. If you are vegetarian or have some kind of food intolerance, please let us know before arriving to be able to take it into account.
    We prefer volunteers to stay for longer periods but if you want to stay for some days it is also acceptable (minimum 5).
