Our farm is located just ten minutes north of Colonia del Sacramento, a charming colonial port town on the Rio de la Plata. The previous owner and visionary of this place, a few years back established an almond plantation, the only one of its kind in the whole area. The farm has also several fruit trees including lemon, lime, grapefruit, guava, nispero, membrillo, pitanga, peach, apple and avocado. There is also a small forest (eucalyptus, ligustro, fresno) where we harvest our own wood for winter and basic building purposes. There is a vegetable garden, next to a bigger plot where we are planting corn, squash and garlic.

Hi everybody! We are a couple with a 3 year old kid, We have a small off-grid eco-sustainable bed & breakfast with 5 double rooms in front of the beach. We are looking for one person or couple who help us 5 hours a day. In the low season (Oct-Dec) we need help preparing the house for the season. So carpenters, builders, gardeners and all kinds of DIY people are mostly welcome. In the high season (Dec-Feb) we need help serving breakfasts, cleaning the house, doing shopping and just keeping an eye while we go to the beach. Our vibe is laid back, we love nature and meeting new people.

We are Andrew and Flora - a young couple from Scotland and Hungary. We purchased this property in 2017 from Steve, who established the Ecopark seven years ago. We are excited to take on this fantastic project and further the goals of teaching others about organic gardening, sustainability and healthy living. Steve has moved to the USA to work in nature conservancy, but we are pleased to say, for those who have known Steve, that he will continue to visit and help on future projects.

This riverside wonderland lies just south of Aguas Corrientes, Canelones – an hour north of Montevideo by car. This quiet, peaceful and eco-friendly oasis was a botanical reserve and tourist destination in the past.

We have a large organic garden and harvest guayabas, wild berries from the forest. The property has five houses, a salon, a stream, a little lake, a bamboo forest, eucalyptus groves, ancient pines, palms, armadillos, rabbits, foxes, giant lizards, and a seemingly endless variety of bi... more inside

I'm a 26 year old Uruguayan girl. I work as an English teacher in a school and in a language Institute. I've just moved into my own house and there are a lot of improvements I need to make but I don't have the time to do it alone. I love hosting people from other countries and cultures (if possible). I've always done it through couch surfing and airbnb. I also love travelling, biking, playig football, singing and drinking good beer.I'm looking for someone to host who can help me with the house improvements from 2 to 4 hours a day. It's nothing like heavy work, just like cleaning some ceramics or move some furniture around or paint a wall. Nothing hard or exhaustIng.
Then you're free to go around the city or hang out with me and my friends. It's only until the 23rd of July when a girl from Germany is coming on a student exchange.
The house has 2 bedrooms, a small front yard and a big independent but exclusive back yard with a barbecue and a studio apartment. I also have a washing m... more inside

We are about half an hour from the ocean and fifteen minutes from a pond. There's a small pond close to the house.
We need tenacious people that can help us in a responsible way, cleaning up after work, not leaving tools or debris in the field, cleaning after meals and keeping a certain order. We are always open to suggestions and discussions, but we make the final decisions. There are main rutines that can be repetitious and extremely simple.
Firing up the oven, gathering firewood, sorting trash and compost, picking manure, pine cones and needles, recycling, feeding cats and dogs, horse and chickens, watering vegetables, weeding and keeping kitchen/dining room clean after cooking. etc.
We expect people to get involved in the things that need to be done. Some times there's a lot, some times less.
It's okay to smoke outdoors as long as it doesn't ruin work, it isn't a fire danger and filters are not left on the floor.
We have experimented growing many things with diverse luck. ... more inside
