My name is Thomas, I am from Holland , I  travelled around the world several times and came across this natural paradise in Patagonia , Chile. I fell in love with the valley , the waterfalls , the untouched jungle (Cold Jungle) I am  active and enterprising , I need help  building log cabins , perfecting my dams, turbines and  windgenerators  to make electricity. I also  bought materials  to  build  a katamaran and heaps  of tools  for all  kinds  of mad scientist   projects. I own this beach right  on  the  estuary. Plenty of fishing seafood , swimming  kayaking and more.  Dolphins  and  curious sealions often come spy on  us  strange human beings . I heard a ferocious roar of  a  puma (american lyon)  a while  ago. All  I  need  is  a  few  helping  hands  as  the challenges  of  survival in pure  unadulterated  nature  are  many .  Lodging in tent, meals rich in fishs. Come see . Adelante. Bienvenidos! But I need wwoofers remain 3 weeks or more.

To arrive, take a night bus from Terminal de buses to Puerto Montt , l fairly confortable usually costs US$ 14 . Nice little town. Stay at one of numerous hostels, usually around  US$10 a night. On Saturday morning take a bus to Quellon (Southern tip of island of Chiloe) 6 hours, US$10. Only Saturday night 7 PM there is a ferry (barcaza ) to Raul Marin Balmaceda, arriving 9 AM ( cost US$20) .......if you take a sleeping bag you might just sleep comfortably on deck , but if raining stay seated in large room with lots fishermen and  locals . Guard your belongings as you would in any country. Arriving in Puerto Raul Marin B. contact  a driver (mobile       ) who will direct you to  me. This involves another ride in a  boat ...perhaps with a fisherman heading that  direction . There are no regular services in this part of the world , relax ...time passes  differently  here .....

Here we have an Eco Hostel&camping with solar showers,a parabolic sun cooker, composting toilets, grey waters system, bamboo geodesic dome....We follow some Permaculture principles. We want to build a straw bale house with green roof. We have start from scratch only 2 years ago, so there are lots to do: working in the gardens, building a greenhouse, collecting firewood, chopping wild roses, building compost toilets and sun-hot-water system, keeping paths open, etc,... Working in our farm means physically demanding effort. Wwoofers work about 6-7 hours per day. During the morning work is always chopping wild roses and in the afternoon you will work in different projects and tasks. We receive wwoofers from September to April approximately and they can stay minimum for 5 days and maximum 10 days. We don`t  have any extra room, so wwoofers must bring tent and sleeping bag and we share our kitchen. People with knowledge about Permaculture, bio-building, sun-energy, grey waters, etc are specially welcome. We are a couple, a spanish and a chilean who want to live in a sustainable way, trying to be a bit self-sufficient from the system. We are not farmers, but we are learning every day.

another languages talked: English, Portuguese

We live on the coast of Piti-Palena estuary, where we have cleared a small spot in the cold jungle covering this isolated Chilean Patagonia area entirely. The place is completely different from any other place you may have visited around the world. Time seems to have remained static for the past fifty years here there is no pollution, and civilization has not reached us yet. The only way to get to this place is by boat from a small village and port called Raul Marin Balmaceda. There are no highways or roads or even paths, since the rainforest is too thick and hillsides are too steep to make way for roads. Access is along rivers and canals only. We have room for up to 4 wwoofers in our place, which is located opposite the estuary. We hope the experience of living in this place for a while, and working so close to our origins and to Mother Earth will enable you to develop new skills. We are a couple endeavoring to implement a non-profit project aiming at sustainability based on resources coming from this land and this ocean.Rodrigo speaks English and Portuguese moderately. He has lived here for 20 years. Beatriz will cook delicious healthy food for us. We and the volunteers will work on and perform various tasks, such as fishing and smoking fish, chopping wood for fire, preparing compost, clearing ground for cultivation, building greenhouses and other facilities, and the like. If you are interested in coming, please keep in mind that this is a fairly isolated area. Fitness and adaptability are required to survive.
