  • Description


    We are a family of 5 people (Mom, Dad and 3 children) and we live in the mountains of Samaipata near the Amboro park. Our space is called "Proyecto Hermanos Verdes", we protect and take care of the environment living with nature. In this way we work in bioconstruction and permaculture. We work in our garden every day. Weeding around the plants, planting new vegetables and flowers and watering every morning. Our project is always growing... We want to build new ecological toilets, a clay oven, a temple for ceremonies and a greenhouse.

Trabajamos en nuestra huerta todos los días. Sacando las hierbas al rededor de las plantas, sembrar nuevas verduras y flores y regamos todas las mañanas.
    Nuestro proyecto siempre crece...
    Queremos hacer nuevos baños ecológicos, un horno de barro, un templo para ceremonias y un invernadero.

  • Help


    We work on issues related to bioconstruction and permaculture, such as construction of a clay oven, ecological toilets, smoothing of the land for camping spaces, construction of tents with logs and assembly of dry walls. For this end of the year we are preparing a festival called "Sounds of the Mountain", for this reason we need help before, during and after said festival.

    Trabajamos en temas relacionados a la bioconstrucción y permacultura cómo por ejemplo construcción de un horno de barro, baños ecológicos, alisamiento de la tierra para espacios de cámping, construcción de carpas con troncos y armado de muros secos.
