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 work 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

* How to mulch and its importance
* How, and what, to feed chickens
