Our farm is below Corongo in Northern Ancash, 6-7 hours drive from Huaraz. English mandatory. ONE MONTH MINIMUM STAY. We teach "natural farming" and search for voulunteers that want to learn about it. We recommend reading "The One Straw Revolution" by Masanobu Fukuoka, for information about what it is.
Our farm is about 2600 masl but we have fields until about 3500 meters altitude, for the cultivation of many highland crops and frost-resistant crops from the northern hemisphere. We run a small seedbank.
Natural farming has influences from southern China; from Daoism, but also from traditional ways of mountain-peoples from Amerika to Europe and India.

One of our main principles is: No Burning (except for firewood in the st... more inside

This is a fun, colorful, and friendly hostel right on the beach in front of the pier in Huanchaco, Peru. We host people from all over the world and love sharing stories and experiences with other travelers. Many of our guests take advantage of the great surf just across the street either through rentals, lessons, or even just swimming in the ocean. There are also opportunities for guided tours, visits to ancient ruins, or even fishing trips on totora reed boats.

I am looking for volunteers who are available for at least one month (6-8 weeks is ideal), who are happy, responsible, hard-working, and easy-going.
