Como primera experiencia en un voluntariado fue de lo mejor, Don Gonzalo es un gran anfitrión, explica bien los trabajos que se debe realizar y es muy atento a las necesidades que se tenga. Elia y Daniel igual son grandes personas y también te apoyan en lo que necesites. Aprendes mucho sobre plantas y estas rodeado de mucha naturaleza el lugar es hermoso. Y el perrito Canelo es un gran compañero siempre está ahí acompañandote y queriendo jugar. Es un excelente lugar sin duda volvería.

Volunteering at Vivero La Huella was an amazing opportunity to learn lots, meet awesome people ( and a dog), and connect with nature. Gonzalo is a wonderful host! He was kind, generous, and provided me with lots of food every week. He is someone that we can learn a lot from. Elia and Daniel - that work there - were super helpful and always had a smile on their faces. The cabin I stayed was cozy and I had bicycles available . The tasks were pretty easy to do and the working time is fair. I felt as I was doing something really meaningful while volunteering there. I really recommend this place!

I had a great time volunteering at Vivero La Huella. The place is beautiful, and the duties are interesting. Gonzalo is a great host, he’s always worried about our needs. The work time is fare and easy to accomplish. The cabin for the volunteers is comfortable, the weekly food list provided is generous, and we had bikes to ride to places around. The vibe at Vivero is peaceful, and I enjoyed meeting the people that work there, they're very kind, easygoing and helpful. I recommend this volunteering for whom would enjoy a quiet place to reload the energies, and learn more about plants and nature.

Una experiencia que me gustó mucho. Pude aprender mucho, conocer la zona y además despertó algo dentro de mi muy bueno! El mundo de las plantas es realmente sorprendente, y eso que conocí una pequeñísima parte! Gracias por todo Gonzalo, me sentí muy muy cómodo y a gusto. Recomiendo 100% este voluntariado.
