Join our GREEN TEAM & Plant in BUENOS AIRES (Argentina)

We are an organization that since 2005 promote Sustainable Human Development.

We support vulnerable communities in their constructive growth through ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIONS, equipping them with tools such as organic agriculture, natural construction and fair trade.

We connect worlds and promote meetings of young people from all over the world, who come to our communities to help, share, learn and teach.

We are looking for people who, regardless of creed, race, language or age, display their generosity and love, becoming part of our movement that make possible this chain of love, to make real these beautiful miracles of life and common union.

Our communities are diverse: educational, rural, people with disabilities, hospital patients, socially excluded people, etc. And all with the same need: to grow in equity and develop as citizens being environmentally responsible.

Our mission is to take care of "the big house" "the common house" that shelters us all and to undertake a sustainable personal development, on a human scale, that brings us a little closer as part of the same planet.

Our activities:

- We offer workshops to children and adults on good environmental practices, separation of household waste and elaboration of eco-bricks. Workshops on Japanese techniques of sustainable cultivation: eco pots, nendo dango, spheres of moss and other Japanese techniques such as origami, furoshiki, ikebana

 - We support Rural Populations with the promotion of networking, the revaluation of their strengths and the setting up of Responsible Tourism Circuits.

- We promote the health and re-socialization of inmates of Psychiatric Hospitals by building organic Plant Nurseries and Gardens. Patients with permission to leave are invited to exchange knowledge with neighbors in the Cultural Center of the neighborhood.

- We develop Eco-Responsible Circuits in La Boca and Barracas.

We naturally build together, this world in which we all deserve to live!

We need your friendly hands :)
