Guardian and Luna are two german sheperds taking care of our land and Linda is a cooker who loves to be on humans side.
Once you come, ask for @ The Magic Woodland, is a family project we also have in our place and we are sure you will love too.
TYPE OF HELP
Since our Naomi came to our life, it´s been an intense work taking care of her, plus, our normal daily duties...
We are looking for someone (ONLY ONE VOLUNTEER AT THE TIME), who join us in our family life to help us go on with the everyday tasks and to share time with our daughter.
-Help with cooking
-Feeding the dogs
-Cleaning the kitchen and dishes
-Sweeping and mopping
-Help us with shopping and grocery
-Water the plants
-Playing games with Naomi
These are the main activities you will be involved into.
There are some other activities we could do during the work-days that could go from painting a wall to planting a tree. It all depends on how proactive and knowledgable you are in different topics.
CULTURAL EXCHANGE AND LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
We are a young spirit and very open-Minded family that can help you out with what you are really expecting from your trip.
Coming to our project will allow you to live a real family environment in Medellin. Our culture, our food, our drinks, our language, our history as a society (not the tourist version Lol).
You will be in one of the best green areas of the city at the same time that you will be close from everything you might want to visit in our town.
As we both work as independents in our own passions, you will be meeting many locals who are around our worlds. Teaching them whatever you bring with you or learning at least some Spanish, are things that will happening!!!
Finally you will understand the meaning of something we called UNIVERSAL RECIPROCITY.
Your accommodation will be normally in a bedroom. Eventually with another volunteer. In some situations, you will have a mattress in the living room. Everything will be flexible but always safe and comfortable.
The accommodation obviously includes:
-The polite use of the spaces in the house
Bathroom (located inside one of the rooms) is shared and also a cleaning responsibility of all users.
We will provide you a simple but tasty vegetarian lunch during the work-days. Breakfast and dinner will be each volunteers responsibility (even though, we normally share recipes and ingredients).
In order to be more productive on what we do, we won't work the 6 suggested days for few hours...
We will work hard ONLY 4 DAYS from tuesday to friday, and then volunteers will have saturday, sunday and monday as FREE DAYS to go or do what ever they want.
8:00am - Starting activities
2-3pm - Lunch time
6:00pm - Closing the day
TO DO ON FREE TIME
My husband and I used to be very street people, so we know a lot of things about our city; Touristic spots, where to eat, where to party, near towns to visit, So we will guide you on whatever you are willing to do.
It is required to stay at our home at least 1 week and to leave a review/reference of your experience at the end.
If you can show up with a six-pack of BEERS, it would be an awesome beginning in our family relationship :) Lol
So, with no more details, we hope you join us.
Have a great life!
