Program Details

We are currently looking for engaged, committed, like minded people who are willing to learn, work diligently in the set hours whilst experiencing the Peruvian Andes authentically. People who are interested in an alternative, off grid, community based lifestyle and who have knowledge or interest working in permaculture and organic farming are perfect for our team. See ´What else´ section for people specifically with experience and knowledge of permaculture.


Activities & Shift

Currently our main priority is harvesting, caring for and tending to the various avocado trees that we have on the property (2000 trees right now) and general house, gardening, planting and farm duties that we need help with!

However, as we are a relatively new project with plans and resources to keep growing (many types of seeds and space for new projects), we are open to ideas or people with experience and knowledge in this field and there are an abundance of opportunities to offer your creative input for new projects we are starting in a relaxed and beautiful environment!

These range from cooking, general garden, carpentry, art/design and farm work, to helping with the organization, management and planning of the project and property to helping manage various online platforms and the digital side of the project.
