    Your main work will be taking care of our farm animals, we have a horse, one cow, chickens, turkeys, pigs, all live in freedom and each has a specific role on the farm.
    We work together with native families.
    We started a reforestation project with a local palm tree and other native trees. Our goal is to bring back a local bird (loro) which almost disappeared completely from the area. We are also establishing an edible forest which is part of the reforestation project. This project is still in the beginning and part of your job will be taking care of the trees.
    Maintenance of our organic, permaculture garden.
    There is lots of room for your own suggestions and ideas. You are always welcome to help improve the garden, the forest and the life of our animals.

There is no other electricity but in the farm house (which is a 15 min walk downhill) you can charge laptops and any other device.
    There is no wifi on the farm or at the hut but 2 min from the farm house there is an internet cafe which has really cheap internet access and is open all week long (weekends included).
