  • Description


    We are a Swiss couple (retired) and live in a campo (17 acres) close to the beach. We have lots of projects - like making bio-char for planting trees and for the dry-toilet - planting trees using the method of Ellen White - bio construction (8 huts around a swimming pool). Our focus is our care for the environment. We don't have animals except the birds, lizards, hares and foxes that look after themselves.

    At the moment we are looking for someone who would do garden chores. Would be great if you could handle edger and lawn mower. Also we are about to build an outdoor kitchen and maybe we need a helping hand.

    If you are interested in bio-construction and permaculture, you are the right person for us. The focus will be bio-construction and tasks around the house. You will live in your own bio constructed hut with 30 m2, fully furnished with much of space around the hut for enjoying life. You can also use our Sauna, the hydro massage bath tub and the swimming pool.

    Our place is about one hour away from Montevideo, 30 minutes from Libertad (the next town, where you can go to restaurants and shopping centers) and about one and a half hours from Colonia de Sacramento.

    Our idea is that you help out 5 hours in the morning, 5 days a week. But we are ready to change this schedule.

    We speak German, English, Spanish, French and Portuguese.

    The cultural exchange is the combination of Switzerland and Uruguay. (We are Swiss and living in Uruguay). If someone is interested in learning German, we can talk in German. Travellers will certainly learn about bio-construction and permaculture.

    The help will mainly consist of bio-construction. Knowledge of bio-construction and some skill in some skills in craftsmanship like construction tasks, mainly bio-construction will be very much appreciated.
