Looking back to when we volunteered for two weeks at Eco Sur a developing eco community in Mendoza, Argentina. Miss this beautiful lot and our Friday homemade veggie pizza nights
We noticed so many eco communities available with volunteering opportunities on Work Away, all complete with building work, community living and their very own Earthships and decided we had to give it a try.
An Earthship encase your wondering as we did, is an environmentally friendly way of building a home using recycled materials, mud, straw and clay. There is also some very clever technical work done to creat a space that ideal keeps the room temp perfect and a fabulous water system that reuses the water several times before eventually it will end up watering the herb garden.
Really nice to see this, learn some and to work on a variety of projects with such a great group of peeps. We highly recommend volunteering during your travels if you’ve got time and checkout a eco community if your interested we certainly found the experience memorable and a lot of fun!
