VISITS

We’re currently in the first stage of the project and we’ve opened a program for volunteers for natural building and learning permaculture design. This situation won’t stop us for receiving visitors or any person with some interest in what we’re doing. It’s because of this that we’ve opened a program for visitors.

The program consists of self guided tours of a 5 day visit – 4 night -. Once here you’ll be free to go around the more than 6 hectares of the farm and its surroundings, observe its structures, design and  on  going projects. At the same time you will witness the current work that is developing here at Raíces del Viento with the volunteers and the whole team. Maybe is not much now, but they are our foundations!

Visitors will need to bring camping wear, and basic equipment. For more details please click here.
There’s a cost of USD15 per person per day that includes tent site and 3 dayly meals + coffe, mate and snacks.

To be part of the program visitors there’s no need to apply, however you need to send us the following information previously (per person ) to contactoraicesldelviento@gmail.com mail:

  • Full name
  • ID number
  • Contact phone
  • Arrival day

In this second stage (end of 2016) we’re focusing mainly in natural building, organic agriculture and the permaculture design due to the necesity of raise up the centre.

  • Between 01 November and 20th of December

As you can see, this January and February we won’t have open possitions due to the courses and the constant input the center needs.
