CURRENT MAIN FOCUS:
Hello, We need some people with gardening experience for plant and making compost. We want a lot of organic food, come to help us to grow full veggies.

Hello we're back to receive more volunteers after one quiet year restructuration. This is an alternative family project in the beautiful mountainous country side of the coffee area of Colombia. We have started this project about 5 years ago.

On our farm we try to be as organic as possible. We cultivate coffee, plantains, bananas, oranges, lemons, vegetables and fruits. We have our own water supply, with rivers and waterfalls close by. We use sustainable construction techniques for our houses,toilets,roads,as far as possible,and try to implement organic farming as much as we can.We have a nice garden with flowers and fruit trees as well.

In the beautiful community Tierra de Agua, in the mountains near the village of Cocorná, 2 hours from Medelllin, is our homestay La Platanera. From a holistic vision, based on permaculture principles and ancestral wisdom and practices of the indigenous peoples, we take care of the land, grow vegetables, have various roles in the community life, and take care of the children.

At the moment we are making more of the land free to grow more vegetables, medicinal plants, flowers and trees. We also want to construct a place for chicken and a small playground for the kids. So we need hands for that!. For the next 4 weeks I need extra help from a nice responsible and social volunteer, who can help me with taking care of the children (4 and 6 years old).

You have the opportunity to take part in the community activities, such as ommunity work (minga), community conversations (mambeadero) in the maloka (traditional community meeting place), celebrations, circles, retreats, and so on. W... more inside

Eco-aldea Medellín!

Come and join the joy of NATURE!

Hola! :) I'm Alejandro from Medellin, I own a big property with 3 family houses!

I have two daughters, 3 dogs and I live with my wife Yeye

The property is located in Envigado, the South of the city with average weather of 24°. It is 3kms away from the Metro station, it has bus stops near with routes going to everywhere in town and it has supermarkets and shopping malls just by...

I grew up in this same house since always, a place surrounded by nature; lots of huge trees, a river coming down the mountain, 3 dogs (my lovely babies), squirrels, butterflies, hummingbirds and hundreds of different birds.
Since 6 years ago I've been working on a project which brings together several passions that lots of people usually have and at the same time creates value to the local and foreign community. Just to mention some of the branches we've been performing:

-Football
-Beer
-Travels

This is an initiative advanced by some Arhuacas families, one of the four indigenous ethnic groups of the Majestic Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. committed to their responsibility to be guardians of nature, acquire this territory outside their shelter, with resources from donations, manage to recover 10 hectares in a place previously marked as "red zone" within the department of La Guajira, specifically in the municipality of the La Guajira Mill, Colombia. These lands that were formerly used for intensive grazing of cattle, now become a small model of environmental conservation due to the natural reforestation process that the same territory has been doing. The care of the Molino river basin as the fundamental nucleus of the process, and thus little by little from the traditional spiritual work and the organic and clean agricultural practices, today we can say that it has been possible to stop the deterioration to which it had been submitted .
The Arhuaco indigenous people and these... more inside

We are Tatiana (mother) and Emiliano (son) a monoparental family who live in Medellin. Our home is small but full of love and really well located. You can just walk a couple of blocks and find bars, restaurants, supermarkets and everything you need. Our condominium is peaceful and there is a pool you can enjoy as you want.

I try to practice a natural and respectful parenting even if it is not possible sometimes. We are interested in unschooling and active education (Reggio Emilia, Piaget, etc). So if you are in the same mood you are more than welcome... if not we can still find many things in common. I like to go out for outdoor activies like hiking, going to rivers, parks or simply enjoying a glass of wine and a good conversation. I like people who is open minded and tolerance with other ones.

Right now I would like to find somebody who is willing to help me with the house and Emiliano about 4 or 5 hours per day . I want someone who is native in en... 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 right now working on interior wood structures. It's a carpenter I need. Building structures for sinks, counters, and interior doors 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.... more inside

If you want to help me grow a food forest then I would really appreciate your help

I am also looking into building a wood fired rocket mass oven and cob pizza and various things with bamboo

The land lays on 5 hectares about an hour from Armenia, Quindio. It feels like the middle of nowhere surrounded by lush jungle

The average year round temperature is about 22-25 degrees so we take full advantage of the outdoors with an exterior kitchen, jungle shower, bamboo cabanas, hammocks
I also have lots of material to share if you have an external hard drive

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

I do not set any time limits.
Come for just a few days
Stay longer if you can't get enough :)
In any case I am deeply grateful for your help and looking forward to meeting tou
