Honestly an awesome experience all around! The people were great and it was cool to make friends from around the world. They have amenities like a fully stocked kitchen, musical instruments, and little festivals on the weekends. You will usually have an organized schedule where you work various jobs throughout the day like barista, gardening, or working with the animals. Volunteers are set up with a mentor at the beginning of the stay where they set you up with the kinds of jobs that you like.

This experience was amazing, I extended my stay and for sure will come back; I found amazing people from all around the world who will be forever in my heart and some of this friendships will probably for life; working sometimes was tiring but doing it with amazing people in this place make everything easy and pleasant. The place is immerse in nature, living here is like living in a fairy tale, I enjoyed every minutes. I recommend this place to everybody who think this simple lifestyle in a community could fit them.

It was a amazing experience. Full of wonderful exchanges and friends. People in the community are very receptive and open to hearing what we need. When I arrived there were more than 100 volunteers, the culture shock was difficult in terms of cleanliness and organization with the other volunteers, as well as some social contracts such as using loud cell phones in the rooms or talking loudly. Things that are resolved with conversation. The work is not heavy, but it requires commitment. The house and food are very good there is nothing to complain about. Thank you to everyone <3
