About.

Pio Pio is a local impact center that is guided by a vision of balance and abundance on this planet for ourselves and others. Thus, we utilize accessible education as our bridge to lead us to that envisioned future. Pio Pio serves as a network for an alliance of organizations that focus on Regenerative Design, Deep Ecology, Art and Spirituality. We provide education, community, and resources through workshops, trainings, and programs internationally and locally on our educational farm in Reñaca, Chile. We are a prolific guild of professional, integral change makes, who find resilience in staying grounded and caring for our bodies. We practice clear and compassionate communication while being present for our team members and volunteers in times of need.

We believe in learning by doing, and orientate our Non-Profit around kinesthetic education. At the center, we create a socially just environment where all people of all ages, backgrounds and genders feel safe to connect and bond with the land and one another. We provide an inspiring space to foster collaboration, cultural exchange and environmental stewardship. Through this collaboration and kinesthetic learning, artistic expression and critical thinking is encouraged.

It is of our firm belief that we all fulfill the roles of both the teacher and the student. There is always something to share and learn from one another! Over many years of working on this project, we have realized that there is no such thing as a mistake. They are only life lessons helping us to constantly improve and grow, and any individual can achieve their greatest potential when they have the right tools, space and support. We mustn’t be so harsh on ourselves in this process and always remember to find the time to celebrate achievements (no matter the size) along the way!

In order for Pio Pio to fulfill its mission, our team encourages our guests and collaborators to take part in dialogue and exchange, and pass on the knowledge and experiences of their time spent at the center. The world is in need of more spaces to unify community and inspire people to live regenerative lifestyles.

Our volunteer program is currently focused on garden/farm work, workshop preparation, holistic agroecology and forestry, composting, seed saving, native reforestation, plant propagation, etc. Pio Pio is located in Reñaca, Viña del Mar in the 5t​ h​ region. The second most populated region of Chile is home to Valparaíso, the cultural capital of Chile and one of the most influential ports of South America. Other coastal cities include Viña del mar, Reñaca, and ConCón (surfer’s paradise). The list of outdoors activities is endless: hiking, climbing, BMX, motocross, diving, fishing, running, kayaking, surfing, longboarding, etc.
We offer vegetarian (periodically we will cook with fish and chicken) and camping sites (if the volunteer doesn’t have a tent we might have an extra one for their use) in exchange for 3 hours of work in the morning and 2 hours of work in the afternoon Monday-Friday (weekends are free!). We occasionally have special activities on and off site. We have a PDF full of all the fine details of directions, expectation, etc, which we will send to you once you contact us.
