Hello!!! our project star 3 years ago with the idea to open a non-profit organization of recuperation and regeneration of native forest and knowledge.
After visiting and volunteering through helpx, alternative off-grid projects, communities, gatherings around the globe, learning and transforming our way to life we can say that in our present we open this space to volunteers like you.
On this land, we plant trees to converted pasture land into a forest/food garden and regenerated natural biodiversity and ancient knowledge. We doing eco-building and practicing permaculture to live with respect to ourselves and the planet.
We will receive new volunteers on Sunday afternoon to show the space where we live and start on Monday morning.
Here you can take part in sustainable activities, we host workshops on; permaculture, organic gardening; natural regeneration; seed conservation; fermentation;
vegetarian and vegan cuisine, medicinal plants, ancestral knowledge, meditation, yoga, art...while at the same time experience the peace and harmony of the beautiful valley surrounded by volcanoes, rivers, hot springs, glacier lakes, and nationals parks.
We welcome volunteers who are genuinely interested to learn and use the knowledge and experience that they have gained in a way that is better for the planet and society as a whole. Think of your time here is as an internship, our volunteer program is specially set up for those who want to experience an eco-friendly and spiritual way of life.
We ask our volunteers to participate for 5 hours a day in a variety of activities during the morning and cook together lunch or breakfast, which will be a weekly schedule cooking board, from Monday till Friday.
In the afternoon and weekends you are free to take part in more activities (yoga, meditation, sacred fires, bike riding, mountain hike in nationals parks and surrounding nature with 3 volcanoes around the land visit local communities, hot springs, markets and near villages, music, vegetarian cooking, movies/documentaries, etc), or simply relax, read a book, swim in the river or take a walk through the surrounding rural environment.
