The Experience

Estamos en una parcela de casi 5000 metros cuadrados, a los pies de la Reserva de la Biosfera La Campana, en la comuna de Olmué, region de Valparaíso. Necesitamos ayuda para crear un huerto, un invernader, un gallinero y una variedad de otros proyectos, siempre con una visión de sustentabilidad y amabilidad con el ambiente.

Meu sonho seria estar lá porém com o fechamento das fronteiras não pude ir. o que gostei foi que sempre fui respondido quando enviei mensagem e me senti muito acolhido. com certeza assim que reabrir as fronteiras farei meu voluntariado lá super recomendo.

Pase una muy linda semana en casa lo guala! Es una hermosa casa entre las sierras, con mucho para hacer y una terraza donde se ven lindos atardeceres. Tomi y Benja son muy copados y te hacen sentir como en casa. Se hacen distintas actividades, todo desde una mirada sustentable, desde ecoladrillos, y cuidar la huerta y el bosque. Lo recomiendo!
