The Experience

This is a family project close to El Chico, Mexico's first national park. Our priorities are to maintain the common areas, develop hike/experiences and keep the house clean ( 1 room is on bnb). At the same time, working on compost piles and keep the garden, chikens, dogs and mushrooms alive and happy. We are looking for people who want to learn by experimenting. People who know how to work as a team and also on their own.

Si quieres aprender sobre sembrar y cosechar, huertos, hongos, compost, escalada (en los días libres) y ademas de eso estar en buena compania y comer rico, todo en el medio de la naturaleza, esta será su mejor eleccion. Alejandro es una persona increíble, amable y paciente que pone todo su amor y dedicación en este proyecto. Fue mi primero voluntariado y seguro que el mejor!

Un lugar donde se disfruta trabajar y estar. Mucho para aprender, el anfitrión aclara todas las dudas que puedes tener con paciencia y dedicación.

Alejandro te hace sentir bienvenido y cómodo desde el primer momento. Mucha comunicación y respeto. Salí encantada de haber podido ayudar y con muy bonita experiencia.
