Description and Impact

We need Experteers starting in January.  Situated in a beautiful valley near the village of Amaga. 45 minutes from Downtown Medellin. This Hostel is a live Premaculture Hostel educational center/farm and showcase of best practices for sustainable living and alternatives energies.  We need an Experteer to come offer some of their time in exchange for a unique experience.   

Deliverables

The program involves 6 weeks living exchange at an eco hostel in Amaga, a town 45 minutes from Medellin (Colombia). The position is 6 weeks, however if we all agree, there is a possibility of staying longer.  The program dates: May 15 to Dec 15.

The experience requires the Experteer to teach English to locals for 1 hour per a day.  In addition, the Experteer will be asked to maintain the organic gardens which is an estimated 3 hours a day.  The work week is 5 days a week.
