I had a great time at the project TPP, I didn't have any experience before volunteering here. Flo was a great teacher, very patient and super passionate about what he was doing. My time was split 50/50 doing farming and content which I enjoyed and we got lots done which was great! In the evenings/weekends, we would go on sunset walks and game drives (even got to see some Zebras). This is a super beautiful and very unique place, I enjoyed the free time soaking up nature and landscape. Flo was super easy to get on with and I would recommend this to anyone.

Amazing opportunity to spend time in nature and learn about permaculture! Living at a desert was a great experience that helped me expand my knowledge of sustainability for which I am very grateful. Sadly, Flo (the host) made my time at the farm quite hard. His way of being, especially communication style and limited flexibility made it hard for us to cooperate.

Hi Wiktoria.

Thank you for your review. Im very glad you enjoyed the farm and everything the project has to offer. Please understand that this is a exchange and not a service as there are no fees involved. For me(Flo) and the project it is very important that the exchange makes sense interns of giving and taking. When we get volunteers like yourself that do the bare minimum and at the same time waste and damaging our materials by being negligent and causing 3 week setbacks then it is likely that your host will not be very happy.

On your second day I offed to take you back and end your experience as I already knew that we will have a bumpy ride. You chose to stay and use our facility.

Further more regarding my flexibility. On our profile we state that you need to be able to look after yourself and not depend on us to make your experience enjoyable. I help to manage and maintain a massive farm with staff livestock and tourist. This operation requires structure and therefore I can not spend all day with volunteers. That being said I love to spend time with volunteers that integrate and show interest and initiative like Fynn and his family that visited us during your time here. You will also see that they have made amazing reviews on social media.

All that aside I apologize for giving you a hard time. I wish you all the best for the future and a bright life filled with joy.

Regards. Flo flo.

This volunteering has been a good learning opportunity, I was able to expand my knowledge of farm life in such a climate and learn what type of plants are able to live in the desert. It gave me the opportunity to help the environment by cleaning the desert, also making some grow beds and planting trees.

I had a really indescribable time on the Farm together with Flo ! Most of the time we worked together on things in the new house or on the farm and Flo shared his diverse knowledge with me. In my free time I could look at everything closely, hike, watch animals, cook with Flo, play Uno, learn ukulele, cuddle and play with the dogs, feed fish and most important have a great time ! Flo is super sociable and my stay was more than positive !

Incredible experience in the middle of the Namibian desert. Florian is passionate about permaculture and he knows how to transmit his knowledge and his passion. I recommend it to all those who want to be in contact with nature and leave an impact for the future.
