Volunteer


Volunteers are welcome for a short or long period of time. All ages are welcome to volunteer. Although spanish knowledge is not required, it is to the volunteer´s advantage to study Spanish to communicate with the local people who work at the farm. The farm runs an Alternative Spanish Language Institute where classes are offered. Volunteers are welcome all year round. We work from Monday - Friday (6 hours per day) and generally half days on Saturdays.

 

We consider work trades for people with knowledge and working independence in relevant fields such as cooking (for 20+ people), cleaning cabins/clothing, office management and reception, website maintenance and social media, gardening, construction, forestry or biology. Minimum work trade duration is 1 month.

 

The volunteering cost includes guided work on the farm, cross-cultural interaction, accommodation and meals. Volunteers are integrated to help with the daily tasks. Volunteers can expect work in any of the following areas:

  • Organic agriculture (nearly 1,000 square meters)
  • Botanical garden and forest (10 hectares)
  • Farm animals (goats, horses, chickens, ducks, goose. We milk the goats and make delicious cheese!)
  • Medicinal plants (300 square meters)
  • Environmental education (learn about rainwater collection, reforestry, natural construction, renewable energies, energy efficiency)
  • Cooking (learn local and foreign recipes with our excellent cooks)
  • Cleaning and Maintenance (help keep the cabins looking nice for our guests)
  • Bio-Construction (we have implemented and continue to work on a range of bamboo, earth, and sustainable wood projects)

We are open to personal projects and enjoy it if you have special skills to enrich our Finca. If you have a special skill or specific interest, we will do our best to accommodate.
