Hi we are David, Melanie, our 2 kids (6,3)!
The place is located in the Bolivian mountains at an altitude of 1800 meters above sea level and 6 km outside of the village Samaipata. We live on about 7ha land, where a big part is left naturally and forest. There is a little waterfall with climbing wall, fruit trees and a panoramic view to the mystic pre-inca ruins “El Fuerte”. We strive a life in harmony with Nature. Our houses are built mostly with natural materials like mud bricks with straw and wood from our forest. We produce and sell organic mandarin juice and home-brewed beer. “Fuerte Bräu” and the juice “Liquid Sunshine” is sold at our Beergarden and in a nice Pub at the main square in the village.
We are one of the few places where you don’t have to pay for labor. We reward effort and motivation with rich vegan food, knowledge sharing and nice accommodation in private rooms (a rebuilt truck, a tower and a room). According to feedback from our previous volunteers the pure vegetable based food was a delicious and inspiring experience.
We have electricity but not in all of our houses and rooms so its good to bring a torch or candles.
A big part of work is our garden. We try to use different permacultur methods (like hot compost) but it is still a lot of learning by doing and trying for us as well.
Another big part of our work is maintaining our property....cutting gras, bringing it in, mulching trees.....!
Also since we are selling beer and juice and reusing the bottles, we always have to wash bottles on a regular basis. And if you stay long enough you can also be part of the brewingprocess.
The working hours depend on the weather. Sometimes on a sunny day we work more then 5 hours, but if the weather is bad it can also be less. But basicly we are looking for people who want to share our way of life and be a full part of the project.
Please contact us when you know when you will be in Samaipata (maximum 1 month before). The minimum stay is 14 days.
We look forward to your visit
