The Experience

El proyecto nació de la idea de aprovechar un terreno familiar y con la meta de vivir de una manera más sostenible, sencilla y resiliente. A la fecha (2023) llevamos 3 años experimentando y aprendiendo en distintas direcciones. Este año arrancamos con la renta de 3 espacios diferentes por lo que actualmente gran parte de la labor está enfocada en quehaceres domésticos y/o el trato con los huéspedes.

I gotta say I had a really great experience at Brotes & Ceniaz. The host Alejandro was allways super nice to us and had an open ear regarding any concernes. The working hours were very short and the tasks we got, were mostly really interesting. The surrounding villages are super relaxed and perfect for hikes or other outdoor aktivities. On our days off Alejandro took us to meet his friends and climb at the local crags. He also let us experience the local food culture and had alot of knowledge on many topics regarding the local culture, sustainable living or permaculture.:)

Gratificante! Relajante! Enriquecedora! Esos serían algunos de los adjetivos que usaría para describir mi experiencia en Brotes y Cenizas con Ale. Es un lugar tranquilo donde estuve rodeado de una zona boscosa, aprendiendo acerca de proyectos sustentables, la vida rural y como ser mejor persona a través de la visión de Ale, quien fue un anfitrión paciente, consciente, amable, con una calidad humana que mejoró por completo la estadía. Las labores realizadas fueron manejables y dependieron de los proyectos que estaban en puerta. Espero poder volver pronto y seguir sumando a la causa. Gracias

Un voluntariado genial, los perritos, el lugar con tanta naturaleza, las labores que te entretienen y la convivencia con los demás voluntarios hacen una estadía muy amena y el host Alejandro es muy tranquilo y paciente. Thanks🤚
