Verde Darien

Verde Darien, a beautifull place to rest and conect with nature, located in colombian caribean coast, close to Panama border. Located on a one-hectare field near a river with a natural swimming pool our site is 20 minutes walking distance to the Capurganá beach, leaving you endlessly captivated by the natural landscape of the region. Capurganá is a little town on the Caribbean Coast of Colombia, in the middle of tropical rain forests near the Panamá border. There are no roads or cars leaving us far from city noise and pollution. It's accessible by boat or small plane. We arrived to the area in September 2016 to a truly magical place. Nestled among a variety of tropical fruits trees like lemons, mangos, guayabas, papaya, cacaos, bananas, breadfruit, chirimoya, guanabana, zapote to name a few and even more we have yet to discover! Our main activities for volunteering include organic gardening, working on the banana plantation and woodwork with locally grown bamboo and earth soil.

We are Bru and Lolo, italian-french couple, looking for a diferent way of life, more respectouse of nature, environement and relationship. Ingenior with years of international experience in companies, we had comfort city lives, goods jobs and nice friends. Nevertheless, purposeless feeling inside us, push us to start a trip aroud South America to look for alternative way of life. During the trip we discover this small piece of paradise where we are living, learning every day and experiencing more consciousness lives. Here, we use apropieate and renowable energy, we built with natural material, we grow our food, we cook vegatarian and vegan and we constantly learn from nature and people who want share time with us. We are waiting for you!! :)

I titolari sono buone e gentili persone ma mancano di organizzazione nei confronti dei volontari. Al mio arrivo mi aspettavo una buona delucidazione per come si sarebbe svolto il mio lavoro e per come utilizzare la cucina e gli alimenti. Lollo mi ha mostrato velocemente i luoghi dovre avrei svolto la mia attività ma poi non c'è stato un vero briefing per spiegare il tutto. Questo ha provocato incomprensioni e piccoli disagi da parte mia. È stata la mia prima esperienza in un luogo di permacultura. Volevo stare 2 settimane ma a causa di questi problemi sono partito molto prima.
