Hola a todos!
We are the guardians of the corn, Victor & Lexie, We have a land in el naranjal close to jose maria morelos quintana roo, its two hours away from tulum , two hours away from bacalar and two and a half from Merida , we are literally in the heart of the Yucatan peninsula.
Our main goal is to protect the ancient corn seeds that are in danger to be extinct and encourage our local farmers to preserve their traditional way of doing it.
Since I just got the land couple years ago and I havent had the chance to stay for a long period of time we are still working on the house, it has already the frame and a roof built up all with local materials from the jungle with the help of the neighbors
We are ready to start building up the walls on a tradicional mayan way call "bahareque" using only local and natural sources.
Another of our projects is to create a medicinal garden full of herbs and flowers and on the side as well products that we will use to eat ,we already harvested this year enough corn to feed ourselves and the people willing to help. There is nothing compared to the flavor of a real hand made mayan tortilla and their traditional salsa.
We collaborate with locals that speak mayan and Spanish and most of the young ones are willing to learn English ( teaching Spanish or English to the mayan locals or our visitors could be another way of helping)
We want the people to enjoy the jungle, to enjoy the hidden Mexico, to enjoy the sacred corn and to enjoy themselves ...

We need some help in the garden,

If you have any experience teaching Spanish or English we could set up some classes for the locals in town or the people helping us.

We can offer at the moment a tent for camping or a camper car since the house still have no walls, (hopefully we'll work on that soon)
We will have as soon as posible a room for couples and a share room for other people traveling with friends or alone, on the food situation We are asking for a cooperation of 9 dollars (180 mxn) a day to provide food for the three daily meals. We are a non profit organization so the money will be used to buy ingredients and to give a cooperation to the women who make the hand made tortillas... If for some reason you have no money and still would love to come and help, let me know and we will see how we find a way that works for everyone.
Thanks for understanding.

Por que workaway.info permite listas de anfitriões que cobram dinheiro?
Nos países em desenvolvimento (Onde grande parte dos anfitriões está envolvido em trabalho beneficente ou no desenvolvimento de comunidade) alguns de nossos anfitriões podem solicitar uma pequena contribuição para ajudar a família anfitriã ou as obras de caridade (frequentemente menos de 5 dólares por dia) Workaway permitirá estas listas quando a doação for direto para a família ou obras de caridade e, somente com o intuito de cobrir os gastos com a hospedagem dos voluntários. (Isto estará claramente sinalizado nas listas dos anfitriões).
Em hipótese alguma aceitamos listas postadas por agentes, “intermediários” ou projetos que acreditamos que buscam se beneficiar do trabalho voluntário.
