Farm in the jungle of Tulum, Quintana Roo, México

Flor de la Vida aspires to be sustainable eco farm in the jungle of Tulum, Quintana Roo, México.


We started with 5 hectares of raw jungle almost 10 years ago and so far have been able to build 2 sustainable houses (running on solar energy, rain water and with grey and black water treatment), a common kitchen and animal raising and farm area, plus a palapa, where the volunteers will stay.
I say aspire, because mother nature has taught us that despite our ideas, her higher consciousness and plans are greater than ours.
We had all our chickens and turkeys killed last year by a mother jaguar and her cubs, and also lost most of our crops due to floods and then a delay of the rain season. An irrigation system is been created to avoid those issues.
So little by little we have been able to get the animal and agricultural operation up and running again.
Another big challenge we face, is creating our own soil as the land is so close to the beach, and sits on a huge limestone terrain that natural soil is hard to come by, besides the fact that in rainy season is a flooding area and forces us to build raised farming beds.
We are currently seeking 2 to 3 volunteers for periods of 3 weeks, to contribute to the soil generating process (gathering leafs, compost creation and maintenance, etc) and the construction of the raised farming beds (gathering rocks, building the bed walls with cement, etc.). 
We will offer the volunteers: local food suited to their needs, 3 meals, hammocks, mosquito nets and basic jungle living needs (composting bathroom, shower and wifi in the nearby house.).  Working hours would be from eight in the morning to two in the afternoon.
Our only requirements are positive energy, willingness to learn, work hard and sustain the harsh midday sun.

Buenos días Luisa, ¿cómo está usted? me llamo Gabriella. Viajo de momento con mi compañero, Léo, y somos muy interesados en ir a trabajar en vuestro fin firme el septiembre. Somos jóvenes y llenos de fuerza y de ganas de aprender  sobre la agricultura que usted practica en la selva. Llegaremos el 14 de septiembre a Cancùn, y podríamos venir a su casa desde el 25 de septiembre. ¡ Tenemos nuestras propias hamacas y antimosquitos, ningunas preocupaciones! Hablo bien inglés y Léo habla muy bien español porque su madre es española. Usted puede recobrarnos sobre el perfil woofing México. Ya tenemos del expèrience woofing en Canadá.
