The Experience

Our form of living is simply rural and modest without luxury and pretension as well as having some places to meditate and tune into the energy of the environment. The volunteering is only an exchange for accomodation. We live in a permanent relationship with nature and our daily work allows us to marvel even more each day at the beauty of our environment.

I'm writing the review after returning from my backpacking trip in South America and staying at Granja ViDar was one of the really memorable parts of my trip. The farm has a nice, laid-back atmosphere as Ale and Cris are so lovely. The animals are great too. Everyone eats together so it's really sociable..in short, I would definitely recommend volunteering here!

I have had an absolutely great time at Granja ViDar. Hosts are very kind and lovely people. They made me feel very welcome. I loved they have so many animals around. My favorite were definitely goats, I used to take them out in the mornings and bringing back in the evenings. I've met bunch of really nice people over there. i really liked the family style meals we had every day. Everyone had a chance to prepare a meal.
Granja ViDar is a very peaceful place where you can relax and learn about the agriculture. You will be surrounded by a stunning nature and beautiful people!

Very genuine and helpful people. Had an amazing experience and enjoyed learning about Colombian culture. The hosts don't speak English, but are still excellent at communicating.
