The Experience

We have been working the last year on maintaining the house and property, starting practices on soil improvement, mushroom production, and some food garden beds among other things. I'm interested on having an exchange with people who can work on their own at times and in a calm rhythm of life. The land is in a small town outside of Mexico's first national park! If you like hiking, climbing / bouldering, bouldering, this is the place!

It was an awesome volunteering, it felt like a family. Ale is a great host and makes you feel at home. I'll miss the nature and the dogs. Thanks for everything!!

Amazing experience, felt like home. On the Weekend we would go climbing and Alej has a lot of knowledge to share.

Un voluntariado genial, los perritos, el lugar con tanta naturaleza, las labores que te entretienen y la convivencia con los demás voluntarios hacen una estadía muy amena y el host Alejandro es muy tranquilo y paciente. Thanks🤚

Fue nuestro primer voluntariado, una experiencia maravillosa 😊. Alejandro desde el primer momento nos hizo sentir como en casa. Su casa es muy linda y sus perritos muy divertidos. Nuestra estancia fue muy gratificante y nos permitió aprovechar el tiempo compartiendo y aprendiendo de Alejandro, desde la composta, cuidado de animales, mantenimiento, la separación de deshechos ¡y hasta escalar! Sin duda es una experiencia que recomendamos a cualquier voluntario que ande por Pachuca. Gracias Alejandro😊

La experiencia fue realmente enriquecedora, uno se conecta con el lugar, con Ale, sus perritos (Hifa,Warawara y cosmo) de inmediato. además aprendí un montón sobre cultivo de hongos, siembra y cosecha. Junto con ello comí increible y escalé por primera vez. Recomendadisimo, es realmente un muy buen voluntariado.
