The Experience

We are done with the dome greenhouse, now we are building gabions, filling them with rock. We need strong volunteers without being afraid of heights. If you are a stone mason or like to carve stone, we are sculpting a stair case on the rock, and finishing a stone wall.

I think Jonathan is an egocentric person. Empathy is not in his vocabulary. The tasks I tried to fulfill were never good enough (whenever he checked on me, he would frequently tell me to handle the task differently from his previous explanation, giving me the feeling I was doing it wrong) and it seemed as if he expected that a volunteer's motivation should be as high as his. He is very dominant and not interested in other opinions or persons. He even ditched us on a night in town, not mentioning up front that he might not give us a ride back home, I think that is very rude. Don't go!

Janine, I think you were obviously more interested in a free stay in Bariloche instead of helping in our project. You are super egocentric, selfish and insulted and said awful things about latin american people, and on top of it you fought literally with all the team members at the time, so I think your evaluation shows who you are, and who's exactly not empathetic but your self.
Don't want to get into details here but since you brought it up free rides were never implied, and if you want to go into town the bus stops on the regular by the main road. If we happen to go into town because you were going to meet with your tinder match, I have no obligations whatsoever, in your free time you are free to do whatever you feel like, and me too.
Hope you learn to be more empathetic, and respect your peers!
Best of luck with the rest of your travels!
I wouldn't recommend you to others either, very sad but true, you didn't even know how to cook a meal, or do anything but fight period. Horrible experience!

It is not easy to describe the whole experience. I can start with the place, quiet, peaceful, natural and heavenly; followed by the hospitality of Jonathan who includes you in his daily life as if you were a friend. Continuing with the project, in which you learn many things, not only things of natural construction, all sustainable, taking care of the environment, but also to recycle and dispose of materials that many consider waste. If you want to learn, help and enjoy a beautiful place in good company, this is the place!

Mi experiencia en el proyecto fue muy buena. El trabajo es físico, demanda energía, pero me encanto hacerlo, aprendí un poco de todo. Varía desde hacer jardinería a cortar leña y hacer gaviones, depende lo que se necesite. Trabajamos desde las 10 hasta las 3, con dos días por semana libres.
Jonathan es muy buena onda, le gusta organizar planes con los voluntarios y enseñar los lugares que solo los locales conocen. Y el terreno es increíblemente lindo, con bajada directa al lago Nahuel huapi y un muelle.
Una experiencia buenísima !

Jonathan es un tipo muy copado, me encantó la idea del proyecto, el voluntariado requiere bastante esfuerzo y compromiso, pero el lugar y la buena onda es increíble!
