The Experience

Voluntario que le ayude a crear y mantener su huerto. Deseamos utilizar especialmente principios de Permacultura en nuestro huerto ya que estamos ubicados en un refugio de vida silvestre y deseamos disminuir el impacto en el medio ambiente; pero estamos abiertos a otros métodos siempre y cuando sean amigables con el medio ambiente. El huerto no es muy grande, pero deseamos producir plantas aromáticas, medicinales y vegetales para nuestro consumo

Working with Patricio was very good and btw he has a very sweet dog named caipi :) 4 out of 5 for us
