Permacultura Colombia

 Thank you for your interest in Páramo Permacultura Colombia. In the first half of 2017, people interested in permaculture and willing to learn practical stuff, are welcome to work with us as volunteers. If you would like to take this opportunity, please read the information below.

  1. We will provide informal discussions about permaculture (according to your interest), as well as permaculture related activities such as:

    1. Natural building: Timber framing, green roofs

    2. Gardens: compost, nursery, planting, design

    3. Living fences

  2. Lodging and Facilities: at the moment, we can only offer you camping site (please bring your own camping gear: tent, mat, sleeping bag, etc.). Nevertheless, there are many lodging options in the nearby city of Paipa, Boyaca (2km from the farm).

    1. Food: We will be happy to share our vegetarian lunch with you. You are in charge of your breakfast, snacks and dinner.

    2. Wood stove

    3. Dry toilet

    4. Shower, water: We do not have tap water or showers. However, we have a reservoir from which we take our water (we boil it for consumption). There are hot springs in town.

    5. We do not have electricity

  3. What you should bring: we recommend long sleeve shirt, hat and working gloves (it is very sunny and there are some mosquitoes). Bring other personal items you might need (e.g. medicines, food, snacks, etc). Please make sure you have medical insurance, we are not responsible for accidents/injuries/sickness. If you spend the night in the farm, please bring a torch.
