The Experience

If you wish, you can learn how to cook tajines, gamilla, couscous and other traditional Moroccan dishes, and we will all cook together for the volunteers and for ourselves :) Every day one or two people can cook, and each day/each meal we will shift. We cook three meals a day and eat all together. During cold nights we eat inside, warm nights outside while enjoying the sunset! Besides cooking, volunteers will help in other general work.

My stay in the farm Sahara was short but life changing. I met really special people, including volunteers that were there like me and the owners, Said and Linde. They made me feel instantly at home. The work is manageable and laid back, as all the attitude the farm place. You will learn to slow your time, take it easy, and enjoy being the farm desert… thank you so much Linde and Said, hope to see you again x

Said and Linde are very hospitable hosts and are knowledgeable when it comes to Moroccan culture. I absolutely loved the week I spent with them and felt very at home. The project they are working on is very interesting and they were happy to share their plans with us all. The work was enjoyable and they never expected too much of anyone. I would 100% recommend this stay. It is a chance to help out with a great project and get immersed in real local life in South Morocco. During my stay there were 5-6 volunteers at once so it was also a great chance to meet other international people.

Unforgettable experience with wonderful people. Over the week I was there I learned to make mud bricks, eat and drink traditional Moroccan tea and family-style meals, and connect and have fun with the other volunteers, Said, and Linde, all of whom have beautiful hearts and stories to tell. This is a quiet, harsh place - bring a book or be comfortable with silence and please don't go expecting 5 star luxury. You'll get out of it a chance to slow down and disconnect, experience a traditional way of desert living, and contribute to a worthwhile project.

My first experience and it was great, i'll definitely do more in the future. Said and Linde are very nice and gentle people. They welcomed me in their house and made me feel like home. They also arranged a trip to the desert and it was very beautiful. I recommend this experience if you really wanna see the local life and strengthen your relationship with nature. It was a very peaceful environment and a very pleasant stay.

Although I did not stay with Said, he was there every step the farm way, helping me out. The experience that I had was truly i credible and Said and his friends were so hospitable and truly represented the best side of Morocco. Inshallah I will come back one day.
