Hours: 2-3 hours, 3-4 times a week.

Ecological Project:
Volunteer on an Eco-Farm with an independent small group of farmers and producers. If you are interested in sustainable development, environmental conservation and alternative energy sources then this is the perfect opportunity to get involved! This volunteer projects involves physical work so the volunteer would have to be prepared to get hands-on on the farm. Volunteers need to have flexible hours, and must be willing to travel across Argentina as the farm is located in Mendoza!

Sports Project:
