Bosque Urbano is a project created by students of the Universidad de San Martín 13 years ago. They present it as a living laboratory, whose main objective is to preserve the biological heritage and promote food sovereignty. It has a size of 3200 metres square. It was created with the objective of developing outreach and awareness activities so that the community can understand, listen and learn from nature in order to improve and create a world with environmental justice. For this purpose, research tasks are developed and workshops open to the community are offered. In addition to the organisation s permanent team, the project frequently receives visits from scientists and environmental experts in coordination with the Universidad de San Martín, with the objective of deepening on specific topics.

Work: Volunteerings are spaces where we learn while we work, we share knowledge and take care of the space. We transplant, irrigate, identify species, remove invasive species and weeds, plant, make cuttings, fertilise and care for this great biodiversity. The weekly agenda consists of the following activities: 1. Tuesday: Organic Garden Day. 2. Wednesday: Compost and biodigester day. 3. Thursday: Reproduction and care of native plants. 4. Friday: Biodiversity conservation. The activities planned to be carried out are: -Help in daily activities. -Collaborate in infrastructure improvement and general maintenance -Get involved in the planning and implementation of recreational and educational activities related to the environment. In general, the task of the volunteers consists in collaborating with the maintenance of the space, participating and assisting in weekly scheduled activities and accompanying visitors who participate in them.

Accomodation and food: Subir al Sur provides accommodation in a shared house with other volunteers and gives money to buy food.
