- About COVID-19
- Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we recommend you to stay informed about WHO's and local authorities' recommendations.
We have lots of fun outdoor work, for example we are Filling Gabions with rock, finishing a stone wall next to the tire wall, carving a staircase on the rock, pounding tires, finishing the first grey water planter, renewing the dock on the lake, etc. Once every couple of weeks we do some community work as well, since I'm teaching locals to recycle. You should apply for this position if you like nature and are not afraid of heights.Learn more

What J provides is an amazing opportunity to learn about Earthships & sustainable living in a beautiful location. Also, he freely shares all his knowledge and was invested in helping me experience different aspects of life in Bariloche.
J expects work to be done and volunteers to be independent and proactive, so this experience would be great for so. who is interested in the project, understands the requirements, and is not simply looking for cheap accommodation.
I had a great experience, I'd definitely recommend.

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!
