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. Our animal crew, at the moment has chickens, 5 dogs, 2 cats, 2 and half horses (one is a pony!).

I bought a wooden cabin whose construction should be completed. I live in Buenos Aires,
but I cross to Uruguay for periods 7-10 days mostly in spring/summer to work in there.

The cabin have a finished bathroom, hot water, kitchen, fridge, microwave and BBQ.
Jobs are to isolate walls/roof with foam panels, to put ground in level, some gardening...
Location is Guazuvirá, a very small village 1hr bus at East of Montevideo.
There are nice pine forests and the cabin is located 100 mts from a very wide beach.
There are basic shops and also a bigger town is at walking distance by the beach.

I will be glad to offer accommodation + breakfast to ONE helper in change for 3-4hs/day help.
You can cook your own meals, or we can share expenses and cook together.

I'm a very skillful retired engineer. If you come, surely you'll learn many tricks.
Also I can recommend places to visit in Argentina, or in Uruguay if you will continue
your trip for this country.

Are you interested in the concept of food forests on a large scale (47 hectares)?

Are you prepared to work hard from 07.00 in the morning until 13.00 each day with a break for brunch (10.00 am) followed by a light lunch when the work is finshed? Volunteers are expected to help prepare, serve, and clean up during meals. This time is not counted as the 5 hours volunteer work.

Are you able to eat delicious and healthy food what comes from our garden (we use flour, rice, and purchased items as little as possible)?

We are a German couple and we have lived in Uruguay since December 2008. Living with us means adapting to the hard work of a farming family. The advantages are: comfortable accomodation, a family atmosphere, free afternoons and evenings, wifi, access to a nearby town (Atlantida next to the beach), access to domestic animals, a swimming pool, bikes and two horses.

Work on this farm starts early. You will help clean the areas where the animals eat a... more inside

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.
