Hello, my name is Niek and I'm Dutch. After being longtime a helpX-host as well as a Wwoof-host in France, where I did have help for many years from lots of helpers from all over the world, I changed my life and place for a nice property on the shores of Uruguay's largest river, where it is larger than 5 till 20 kms, with its own private beach (for nice swims and sunbaths), nice trees, grassy slopes and a typical eucalyptus-forest.
I'm working on a project for selling parcels of my property and I am working at my house. Work to be done is helping me with planting, maintaining the (little) farm of trees and shrubs, watering, cleaning of the beach, cutting trees, cutting grass, painting and many other small and bigger things to do in a rural place.
My location is 5 kms away from Fray Bentos, there is no bus but I often go to the village. Regular bus service between Montevideo and Fray Bentos, a few buses between Buenos Aires and FB. At 2km is a popular beach resort called Las Cañas with music in summer, lots of people and shops.
The Uruguayan people are nice and friendly, only few people speak English. I live together with Irene, she's Uruguayan and she only speaks Spanish and she has two children from 12 and 15 years old.
My helpers can sleep in a basic wooden cabin on the beach or in our old house on the property.
Hope you will consider to come and help me.

Also; I will require you to take out volunteer's insurance. For example, OV Europe and WorldNomads offer such insurance (see HelpX insurance page for more info).
