we handle 2 types of exchanges,  

In both cases, the work to be carried out is diverse, in the different areas of our reserve: maintenance, reception, gardens, orchard, apiary project, workshop, guest service, among other activities which in some cases they depend on the qualities that you can contribute more easily. 

Volunteering 1. A basic exchange of 5 hours of work, for a stay in the camping area and you will be assigned tasks according to daily needs.
