Kind hosts who deeply care about earth & teaching. I hoped to learn about hydro/aeroponics but my trip was cut short, though I'm unsure if I would have learned it if I stayed the full week. The 3 days I worked, I planted seeds, weeded & hammered nails in the wall I left early due to unsanitary conditions with mice in the kitchen (kept utensils in fridge so they don't access them, poop on dishes and stove) and in my bed (my last night, a mouse started to crawl on my head, left poop by my head) The home should be deep cleaned & some things replaced incl. ripped up chairs and dirty pillows

Me deja bastante asombrada la opinión de Nicole. Lo primer es de destacar que en éste lugar se aprenden muchas cosas, diría que en 3 días es imposible que alguien pueda aprender o decir que no se aprende lo que exclusivamente vino a aprender, de hecho ella en esos tres días ya menciona al menos 3 cosas de que aprendió, pero en un proyecto de éstas características sugerimos estar al menos 2 semanas, aunque se que en esas dos semanas va a ser difícil que aprendan de sintropia, aeroponia, acuaponia, hidroponia, huerta orgánica, bioconstrucción y por eso vamos rotando las tareas día a día para que aprendan lo más posible. En el caso de ella estuvo con el tema sintropia (aunque ella dice que solo plantó semillas), estuvo trabajando con la huerta orgánica nueva (aunque diga que solo sacó pasto) y estuvo comenzando a construir la trama que va a sostener un hermoso mural de barro con muchas representaciones de la cultura Uruguaya como los tambores, guitarra, etc, que ella lo sintetice con que solo clavo clavos la verdad no me deja un buen concepto de ella. Le habíamos mostrado el producto final (otro mural que tenemos) y ahora estaba comenzando a hacer uno nuevo, pero dice que solo lo que hizo fue clavar clavos en una pared. En cuanto al tema limpieza, es algo que venimos trabajando constantemente, y es que la casa escuela es el hogar de los voluntarios y constantemente estamos pidiendo que la limpien que es una de las pautas del reglamento que mandamos y que varias personas no cumplen. Es algo lógico que si dejan comida en platos y no limpian estando en un campo va a haber la posibilidad de que entren ratones y es una de las cosas que ponemos en los carteles para que todos lean.
Espero que los próximos voluntarios puedan entender que son ellos los que deben cuidar el lugar donde están, como también la higiene de las cosas que ellos usan, porque esto no es un hotel, justamente, tampoco cobramos y no tenemos personal para limpiar lo que ellos ensucian. Creo que ella debería optar por otra forma de viajar, quizás yendo a hoteles y tomando cursos que le interesen y donde le brinden toda la información que requiere pagando por la misma claro.

It was a great experience! I've learned about taking care of an eco farm and Allan leave to try things if you ask and show you are capable of. Allan is a nice guy and took the time to explain me the things in Spanish even when he need to repeat or talk more slowly :)

Fue una experiencia muy linda con Allan y Natalia, en un lugar muy inspirante y una experiencia collectiva muy fuerte. El trabajo puede ser un poco intenso pero te da mucho orgullo de participar y ayudar en este proyecto. La idea es de experimentar, intentar con tus capacidades y es muy bueno. No olvidan de cuidarse ;) y muchos abrazos a los dos, gracias de nuevo para la experiencia !

Jamais de esquecerei desse lugar e das pessoas. Alan é muito preocupado em nos ensinar tudo, explica tudo muito bem. Natália se tornou uma grande amiga, é muito amorosa e preocupada com o conforto de todos. Aprendi sobre sintropia, bioconstrução, aprendi a colocar piso no chão, alimentei os animais e muitas outras coisas. the project é realmente uma escola, em todos os sentidos! Já estou morrendo de saudade.

Foi uma grande experiência com vários aprendizados ao longo das suas semanas que fiquei no projeto. É uma escola pra aprender coisas novas, se desafiar e compartilhar com pessoas que possuem outros costumes. Allan é inteligente, acelerado, tem vários projetos em mente, aprende muitas coisas sozinho e gosta de ser direto com as atividades. Natalia é mais tranquila, suas atividades são mais sensíveis e possui uma grande sabedoria pra passar pra todos os voluntários. Ambos foram muito pacientes e explicaram o que era necessário para fazermos tudo com êxito! Gracias por todo! 🙏🏻
