Program Details

For this position we are asking for a longer term stay (12 weeks min) to help us with more continuity. Interns pay a smaller fee of $5/day (the fee for regular volunteers is $12/day) in exchange for someone who can commit more time and take on more responsibility. We offer all meals of home made food. We serve mostly vegetarian with vegan and gluten free options. You have options for accommodation depending on what is available and what you prefer.

Currently we are a young and growing project. Our growth is slow and organic (a labour of love) because we do everything by hand. Having longer term stays helps us have a more knowledgeable and close knit group!
