About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

*We are very happy to have received many interesting request of wonderful people. Therefore we do not need any extra helping hands for the next few months* If you are available from August onwards, please do contact!* Thank you!

We are a group of enthusiastic people that are very interested in healthy and organic raw food.
In the Azores, on the island Terceira, we are starting to grow a large amount of fruits and vegetables that are originally from more tropical locations, such as South America. However, due to the unique climate of the islands, these fruits and vegetables also grow amazingly well here.
After harvesting, we cut, dehydrate, and pack the products in order to share this unique, healthy food with the rest of the world.
We would like help with the entire process; from washing the harvested products to packaging. Other activities, such as working with machines (cutting and dehydrating) are included, as well as manual activities.
