Flourish The Permaculture Project
“Often in the middle of nowhere is where you find yourself.”
About the project:
Flourish the Permaculture Project was founded in 2018 to promote permaculture and alternative ways of living. We strive to create a better future for further generations by teaching about renewable and sustainable ways of living. We are creating a model of a productive system for people from all over the world to come and learn from and with us.
Flourish is remotely situated in the south of Namibia on the Tiaras Mountain range. Besides for our satellite internet we are 100% off grid. We produce our own solar energy and pump our own water. Flourishes’ location is perfect for people who really want to get in touch with nature.
Things we do:
Primarily we are greening the desert, planting food producing gardens (food forests and agroforestry),make compost, apply rainwater harvesting techniques on large scale, make use of alternative energy, natural building, raising animals, food preservation and processing plus much more.
Since the project covers so many diverse fields of farming, I am sure we will find just the right thing for you.
We offer a wide range of activities such as game viewing day or night, star glazing, hiking, mountain climbing, meditation, yoga, photography, camping, hunting, horseback riding and more.
What volunteers we are looking for:
This opportunity is for those who really want to get involved and make a difference.
We are looking for open minded nature loving volunteers with a can do attitude. Be ok with physical tasks. We welcome those who are ready to go the extra mile.
You should be able to look after yourself and not depend on us to make your experience enjoyable. Be ready to get out there and do something awesome each day.
Being so remote and isolated from the rest of Namibia we offer to pick you up and drop off in either Windhoek or Mariental given that the transport costs are covered. Other pickup and drop-off locations might be considered upon request.
My name is Florian Izko, founder of Flourish.
I live here on farm Landsberg and will make sure you have a unforgettable experience learning about the Namibian ways and permaculture.
