Organisation: Estancia La Margarita
Location: 240km from Buenos Aires
Estancia La Margarita is a well-known and much loved estancia located 280 kilometers from Buenos Aires. The estancia is well known as a hospitality/ horse riding location in the glorious pampas. We have guests from all over the world as well as Argentines who are a big part of our guest numbers. We offer great horse riding and since we are a working farm we can offer guests the opportunity to learn about animals here in Argentina
We are often looking for well-qualified volunteers. Volunteers are a very important part of the estancia personal and need to have the following qualifications:
*Have excellent horse riding skills ( this does not apply to our park keeper/general maintenance poison – see below for details of this position)
*Speak Spanish at least up to a good intermediate level.
*Be available for at least 2 months (preference is given to those who can stay longer)
Location: Cordoba, Argentina
Please contact us for the volunteer program !!!!
Our volunteer program is 4 weeks, with the option to extend if required.
Volunteering is an opportunity to integrate into the daily work of a small family farm based on the principles and strategies of permaculture.
It’s an opportunity also, to observe and experience different techniques that make a sustainable living. Since biobuilding, regenerative organic garden, edible forests, appropriate technologies, art, etc.
The volunteer program is not an academic program of learning; is the possibility of sharing a space where we intend to live a simple, resilient and in harmony with nature.
