The Experience

Es un centro de permacultura abierto a la comunidad. Tenemos animales y huertas. También tenemos un teatro donde se realizan actividades sociales especialmente para los niños. Ocasionalmente recibo turistas como financiamiento. Es un proyecto social y para el bien común. Construimos habitualmente con barro y paja.

Fue una experiencia muy agradable aunque tuviéramos ciertas discusiones, recomiendo a todos los que quieran postular a este voluntariado hablar sobre lo que se obtiene y las tareas ya que muchas cosas siento que se salieron de la línea del voluntariado.

En la eco Aldea se hacen variados trabajos desde manipular caca hasta cuidar plantas, así que hay que llegar con disposición a aprender sobre sustentabilidad y no tener asco a ensuciarse, una vez aceptado eso todo lo demás es disfrute. La gente que vive en el lugar es muy simpática y abierta a recibirte para que te sientas en comunidad. Definitivamente disfruté mi experiencia por todo lo que aprendí sobre sustentabilidad, pero mucho más por la gente valiosa que conocí

desde mi llegada a mingalegre todo ha sido muy bello, el compartir con las personas y animales que viven en este lugar, trabajar en las tareas asignadas, conocer cerros y ríos cerca. Lo más valioso es que he aprendido mucho sobre permacultura 😍. La fecha de mi experiencia fue a fines de otoño, por lo tanto es un factor a considerar, ya que las temperaturas son bajas y las horas de sol pocas. Al ser un eco-centro no tiene las mismas comodidades que una ciudad, todo es más artesanal, en mi experiencia no tuve ningún inconveniente, por ejemplo, en usar baños secos.
