About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

We are two girls in need of someone in good physical condition who feels confident living with us and Piggy, a free living, dominant non castrated pig, on a 4 acres small, private, remote island in simple environment. Frugal dealing with resources is required as electricity comes from solar system and drinking and using water from rain water harvest. Currently we try to prepare the island for the upcoming north fronts and the next season.This is a project where we could need some "man power". We want to build a seawall out of heavy logs to prevent the erosion of the island caused by north fronts and too high tides at this time of the year.
In your spare time you could watch the stars, sunsets, dolphins and rays, explore the island, go snorkeling or fishing around the island, find meditation or yoga spots or just seize the end of the day.
