In this program, you will work alongside local farmers and help them with their daily routine. Your tasks might include planting and watering the crops, cleaning the farm, picking fruits and vegetables depending on what is needed at the time. Many farms have a wide variety crops, and several projects ongoing at any time, so be ready and willing to get your hands dirty!

In Coihueco, for example, they grow fruits like strawberries, raspberries, plums, apples, and vegetables like tomatoes, lettuce and cabbage. Others may focus on crops like potatoes, corn or flowers. Most villagers in this region of Chile have devoted their lives to farming, as it is a practice which has been passed down from generation to generation. Local villagers have learned to sustain themselves and even thrive, by living off the land, eating from what they have grown and supplementing with other basic items.
