The Experience

Nos ayudarías con el mantenimiento del espacio, en el huerto y vivero en los que sembramos productos de la zona sin químicos. Trabajaríamos cinco horas de 9 am a 2 pm. Tendrías toda la tarde libre para, después de comer con nosotros, explorar el área y divertirte. Los días de descanso serían sábado y domingo. Te hospedarías en una casa compartida con otros voluntarios en la que podrás usar la cocina y la lavadora sin costo.

Marcela and Alejandro are lovely hosts, super helpful and very kind. The place is very beautiful, it is very, very rural. We definitely recommend this place if you like immersing yourself in nature and sustainable projects.

Alejandro tough us about the eco techniques that anyone could implement in an outdoor house, and helped us learn how to difference between the local plants and how to consume them.

He is very patient while working and an excellent guide to get to know the best things around!

We will definitely come back here in another mango season.

Ha sido mi cuarto voluntariado en México y es el lugar en el que mejor me he sentido. La hospitalidad de Alejandro y Marcela ha sido inmejorable. Nos hemos reído, hemos conversado mucho y me han ayudado a conocer el lugar.
También he aprendido algunas cosas interesantes sobre construcción ecológica y la gastronomía del país.

Para haber sido mi primer voluntariado ha superado mis expectativas, desde que llegaste hacen sentir en casa, hay buena comunicación, respeto y privacidad. he compartido momentos increíbles, el tiempo que he estado aprendí mucho de sustentabilidad, bioconstruccion, cuidado ambiental y por supuesto, sembradío. Marce cocina muy rico (fui vegetariana por varios días y me ha encantado) y Alejandro, hace de todo siempre tienen algo que enseñar,espero verlos de nuevo, gracias por la hermosa estadía y aprendizaje

Eco-Calli es un lugar donde encontramos casa. Alejandro y Marcela son dos personas de corazón que nos recibieron con alegría y afecto, el tiempo que pasamos con ellos siempre ha sido interesante, motivador y amigable.
La experiencia de trabajo, social y de comida ( !!! )que nos han permitido vivir la llevaremos con nosotros el resto de la vida.
Gracias familia chingona mexicana!!!
Hasta pronto
