We are also looking for a partnership with a non profit organization that can support an agriculture institute in the desert to train technicions in drip irrigation and alternative forms of energy. We would also like any contacts with institions that work with water conservation. The volunteers must at least speak a basic spanish, but we are interested to learn english.It is a simple life, we do not have electricity for the moment. You will have your own confortable room .

I am British and my wife is Peruvian. We have left the UK to start an organic farm, or more accurately to improve the current organic farm run by my mother and fatherin-law. The property is actually several plots, some of which belong to the in-laws and some are ours and currently produces fruit and coffee without us doing anything at all. This is fertile land and the people here do not use pesticides generally as they can't afford them so most farms are already organic. Our land needs clearing and planting, which will take some time. We have a 15 acre plot that will hopefully serve as a base for our major planting or coffee, passion fruit, potatoes etc. and the smaller plots can be used for other fruits and products such as bananas and mango. We live in the cloud forest a few hours from Machu Picchu by foot. It is a beautiful part of the world. The family is in the process of completing an organic restaurant which will serve tourists on their way to Machu Picchu. We are looking for ways to eliminate our carbon footprint as much as possible and want help with innovations that will allow us to survive with minimal recourse to electricity from the grid. We hope to build eco-showers heated by the clay oven (which is not yet built) etc. It's essentially a story of a huge exciting blank canvas on which we hope to project a lot of our ideas and possibly some of yours. The restaurant is nearly finished and has rooms for accommodation. We have a lot of fresh fruit and want to start growing veg too. We will try to provide you with some time to see the local area but the initial work will definitely involve some rather dull clearing of overgrown land. We won't expect anyone to do this for their entire stay of course, but helping out in this venture is the only way we're going to be able to start producing food. We are a small friendly family who needs help in realising our projects and hope that you can help. Note that we don't have regular access to email so we may be slow in responding to your enquiries.

I have 4 hectares of vinyards, vestibles and construccion that includes the only actual hostel in the town, a restaurant and a place for artisan winemaking. The farm is the only totally organic in the area with full organic treatment for vinyards and frutal plants, it's an example for the neighbors and local farms. We work organic since 10 years in a very difficult place to communicate and show the benefits of this culture. We do all as we can to spread the organic world in the area. I work all day in everything it's need to do, for example curing vinyards, the harvest, to make wine, to sell it, to make promotions and touristic trips inside the farm because there's almost no help. I only have 4 workers that are local farmers who also live in the farm. I dream to return to nature, to the antique good practices in harmony with the land, and also to invite the fruits of this hard work that is an organic fine wine handmade by this little group of dreamers. We also want to be known as a temple of good wine tasting, relax and friendship. We by the moment are not vegetarian but we can make arrangments to cook special food for our volunteers if we have to.
