The Experience

Here volunteers will support our socioenviromental project by promoting urban agricultural practises, engaging on several initiatives throughout our beautiful island. We need help to create a medicinal garden to serve our only heathcare unit, we need help starting up our street food market with the exceeding production from our vegetable gardens, we need help bringing more people to join our group and spread sustainable values in our community.
