We are a couple from california and argentina. We moved to Argentina few years ago to start a new life.....We are building a small homesteading permaculture project, next to the river.
we are passionate about growing organic food, saving seeds, cooking good food and raw chocolate, making herbal medicine, natural building and making beeswax candles. We run two small artisan business of organic seeds and raw chocolate, besides making tinctures, lotions and balms from our medicine garden.
We participate on the weekends in farmer's market and also teach workshops on permaculture, natural medicine, food, natural building, seed saving, and everything related to sustainable lifestyle.
We buildt for ourselves a solar pasive cob house and also we have a big job coming up: building a center for an animal sanctuary with natural building techniques, really close to our farm.

We live in a small farm 2 km away from San Marcos sierras, a small bohemian town with dirt roads and where people still ride in horses.
We have dogs, cats, chickens and horses, besides wild animals.
We have an extensive library that you can consult and wi fi with limited use.
we are looking for self motivated people that want to experience life close to Nature since we live off the grid and we try to make as much as we can for ourselves, from growing food to making soaps.
We ask for a minimum of 3 weeks....and please read carefully in our website our guidelines for volunteers!
Also looking for long term garden caretakers during spring-summer season.
We need help 3 hours a day 6 days a week, assisting with whatever work needs to be done. From cleaning our workspace, natural building, feeding the animals, organizing the store, packing seeds, helping in the kitchen, weeding the garden, transplanting seedlings, making candles, watering the greenhouse, etc..Also responsible people that can take care of our place during the weekends when we go to markets....
We need help with website building and online store.
During the rest of the day you are free to explore the local area, enjoy the river next to our property, take a horse for a ride, trekking in the area or just relax and enjoy.
volunteers can learn everything related to our activities: gardening, natural building, self reliance, sustainability, good food, herbal medicine, etc....All depends on the commitment and self motivation they put to help to sustain our project.
Food is not included unless we make a different arrangement after the first week of work trade.

we have compost toilets, comunal kitchen separated from our kitchen lab, hot showers, little cabin and space for tents and hammocks.
