Detalhes

Our volunteers have their own private cabin, and also receive free breakfast and dinner. Our team consists of my mother (73) and myself (41) and a staff of 5. My 5 year old nephew also spends a lot of time here. Balenbouche Estate is a historic sugar plantation which evolved into a retreat center, heritage park, eco lodge and restaurant. 2 beaches on property and many attractions within a 10 - 30 minute drive. The South of St. Lucia is an amazing place to visit and explore. The best time for starting to grow crops is May/June or Nov/Dec.


Atividades & Turnos

You can determine your own hours and days and will have at least one general laborer to help with the physical work, which is done with just hand tools. We would like to set up a nursery and a small greenhouse, possibly with an irrigation system. We are looking to grow a decent amount of vegetables and herbs such as peppers, eggplant, basil, pumpkin, cucumber, green beans, radishes, lettuce, etc. using modern sustainable farming methods.
