About the workproject

We need 3 volunteers

Greetings! My name is Sol Rosas and I welcome you to my home and small organic business. After nearly 15 years living in the jungle, close to nature and starting my own organic farm, I have moved into the charming town of Samaipata, Bolivia. It is located at the convergence of the Amazonian lowlands and the Andean Altiplano and is a very special place.

At the Tango Cafe, we offer delicious vegan and vegetarian foods and all hand-crafted products made with love and a close connection to the earth. We are affiliated with other like-minded farms and artisans of healthy foods and products and sell their items in the cafe.

I live in harmony and integrity with nature and invite you to share time with me, learning how to grow and prepare wonderful food both in flavor and in health. Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Tango Cafe!

We are looking for happy spirited people who are eager to learn about healthy foods, both growing and preparing. There is work making vegan and vegetarian food, working with customers, placing products and cleaning in the shop. At home, there is work in the garden and also preparing meals for everyone. Most importantly, is an eagerness to learn because I want to share my knowledge of plants and how to prepare food for health and vitality.

In general, I prefer volunteers to stay for a minimum of two weeks after a trial period of a few days. If everything is positive for both parties, up to a month long stay is possible.

People will benefit from the opportunity to work here for the knowledge they will gain about plants, happy living and growing and preparing healthy food. They will learn many delicious recipes for yoghurts, pastries, empanadas, juices, coffee as well as how to organise kitchens to manage food, spices, seeds, nuts, and many all natural goods. 

Moreover, this is a remarkable area where the Andean Altiplano converges with Amazonian lowlands, there are lots of wide open spaces for hiking, sites of archaeological significance dating back nearly 2000 years, rock art from ancient cultures, and picturesque lands for exploring the marvels of Madre Tierre and a community of kind people which brings travelers from all over the world to enjoy the pleasant life of Samaipata, Bolivia!

I was born in Cochabamba and lived in Santa Cruz. For nearly 15 years, I lived in the jungle, desiring to be close to nature. During that time, I created an organic farm. Now I live in the charming town of Samaipata with my three children offering delicious, healthy food, selling the quality products of other local farmers and culinary artisans. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of plants and food as well as peaceful, joyful and healthy living with others.
