Volunteer Opportunities

We are currently looking for:

 

  • Caretakers at Mama Roja in Misiones, Argentina


The  co-caretaker opportunities for people who…

  • are responsible and reliable

  • are self-motivated and independent

  • can speak (at least some) Spanish

  • are of good health and mind

The position is ideal for someone who has their own creative projects, wants some quiet space to reconnect to nature and to oneself, wants to deepen their personal spiritual practices, or just needs a time out to sit in a hammock and read.  

The work would basically entail feeding and caring for the 2 dogs, 2 cats, and chickens, and taking care of the gardens and looking after the property. This requires little physical work but that the caretakers be present on the land.  No experience is necessary, all logistical info will be provided upon arrival.

The accommodation will be in one of our earthen cabins with comfortable beds, mosquito screens on the windows, and a wood burning stove (should you need it). There is a fully equipped community kitchen for your use. Electricity comes from the solar panels for charging batteries and running lights, etc. The Yoga Shala is equipped with yoga mats, meditation cushions, and books. Also, there are 2 rivers and a waterfall to be enjoyed.

 

There is some internet access directly from the house, but a short walk would provide cell phone signal and full communications are available in the nearby town of Obera. There is accessible public transportation to and from the property.

If you are interested, email us at mama.roja@yahoo.com with some info about you (if we don’t already know you!), your date availability, and any questions you may have. Thanks!
