This project is set up as a non profit to live the simple life in nature, hold meditation retreats.

The land lays on 5 hectares about an hour from Armenia, Quindio. The only noise we hear are birds and jungle sounds

The yearly average temperature is about 22-25 degrees so we fully take advantage of the outdoors with exterior kitchen, jungle showers and bamboo huts

There is a lot of help needed to further the project:
- Digging and prepping the food forest so we can plant all the fruits and veggies to eat on site
- Working with bamboo to build various things
- Clearing and chopping things off with a machete
- Setting up rain water collection, natural pond
This is ideal for someone who's indulged for a while and wants to get back in shape

There are beautiful hikes around to discover a pristine part of Colombia void of tourists

Bring an external hard drive as I have tons of documentaries, ebooks and other material to share

We moved to our farm in December 2013. Have learn loads during this time and we are still enjoying this type of life.

There are lots of activities done in the farm, and many projects in which volunteers can help.
Volunteers will usually help with the veggie patch, fruit picking and processing and helping with the daily drill of feeding animals. We usually go and do a beehive inspection so that volunteers can have this first hand experience.

We currently have tropical fruit trees, mainly mango and citrus trees, beef cattle (11), bee hives (30) and 4 ponds for farming fish (non organic).

We dont update this post regularly, but we are active and will answer in the next 1 to 3 days.

About us:
We want to live on and from the land following organic principles. We used to live in London and worked in corporate jobs until June 2013, after which we did some woofing in the UK and HELPX in Italy.

Transport from Bogota is very easy. From the main Bus terminal there are... more inside

I live in a tropical rainforest along Caribbean coastal Colombia.
I've recently bought a small acreage that I will design and develop into a sustainable model farm using permaculture and local knowledge. It's truly a blank slate with only large trees dotting the hilly landscape. There's 110 meters of beautiful clear water river frontage, think daily dips.
My plan is to develop a timber and food forest, garden, nursery for young plants, land stabilization, rain water harvesting, a botanical paradise, inviting place for the monkeys and birds and eventually a small chocolate facility.
I need help building infrastructure. Immediately, plumbing for the main house, laying of ceramic floor tiles and completion of a bath house and wash station is another priority. Next a perimeter barrier. Basic construction experience and knowledge will be useful as would work with cement.
I'm a retired Canadian who enjoys people nature and adventure. I have pets.
Minimum stay one month and hopeful... more inside

We are located just outside the beautiful pueblito of Guatavita, one and a half hours north of Bogota by bus, surrounded by mountains and sacred lakes. It has a cool climate, early morning mist and clear starry nights, and at times we get rain, wind and perfect sunny weather all in the same afternoon. We are just across from Tomine Lake, and the famous Laguna de Guatavita (the volcanic lake which gave birth to the El Dorado legend) is only a two hour hike away.

We grew up in the city, but after travelling for a time, I realized that the campo is where I want to be. We want to help change the relationship between people and the land – we don’t need monocrops, pesticides and toxic fertilizers to live well. We want to encourage more traditional farming systems, based on permaculture and biodynamic principles, and drawing from the long-practiced wisdom of established farming communities like this one. I am also involved with a bunch of social projects, including University courses, ... more inside

Hello travelers, nomads and future helpers and thanks for your interest in our profile!

Our farm is located about 1,1/2 hours outside of the city of Cali and the same distance from its international airport. We are at 1,450m above sea level on the western cordillera (mountain range) of the Andes mountains. The yearly average temperature is around 21°C which means we enjoy the climate of Medellin ("the city of eternal spring") while being close to Cali.

Our project started as a dream a little over eight years ago. The farm is inhabited by a Colombian-German couple and we mainly speak English among ourselves. We have for (4) adorable dogs and one (1) sweet cat.

The idea behind our project is a place to work in harmony with nature and the future goal is to reach a certain level of sustainable self-sufficiency. It has been a little more than 3 years since we started to plant a forest. Today there are around 8 ha planted in bamboo, trees from the region and others. With this we ... more inside
