About the workproject

We need 4 volunteers

We are a cooperative farm near a beautiful volcanic lagoon. Permaculture is our goal! We are looking for volunteers who are willing to live at the Farm and have some time in nature. Jointly we own 7 hectares of land which include a lemon grove, a barn, an antique watering system, 3 tanks for fish production, 10 chickens, 6 horses, 2 pigs. We often host courses for young people to get to know life at a farm. We are looking for strong volunteers who want to live in our new adobe house and are willing to work in different farm chores, which also includes creating small barriers against erosion.
