La experiencia

The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings. – Masanobu Fukuoka

If you have a dream of owning a farm, or garden, someday but have never actually farmed, then this program is designed to help you decide if this lifestyle is for you.

This is a workshare program to give you some experience and knowledge of what it takes to have a farm or large garden.

Programa detallado

Applicants should have the following;
- Minimum of 18 years of age
- Strong work ethic
- A fit and able body and mind (manual work is often repetitive and strenuous.)
- You must be able to collaborate at least 5 hours a day
- Excellent communication skills
- Work with a task-based approach (as opposed to a time-based system). This is farming!
- Farm Tasks: Managing the nursery, chickens, building compost, worm farms, weeding, planting, digging earthworks, watering, spreading compost, repairing/creating infrastructure, basically, anything that we need to get done to provide our educational training and move our permaculture projects forward.
- All volunteers must contribute to work in the community garden. There will be fresh produce for you to pick and seeds/seedlings for you to plant to replace what was used.


Actividades & Turnos

Any tasks assigned to you will be given a complete explanation as to what you are doing and why it is being done in that manner.

You can expect to gain knowledge on:
* How to create and use compost
* Where to plant annuals
* Why certain annuals are planted here and not others
* How to mulch and its importance
* How, and what, to feed chickens
