Are You More Than Just a Tree-Hugger? Prove it By Helping Out with an Eco Project!

Examples of eco projects include but are not limited to:

Gardening and farming: A family may want some help restoring their estate or bring life to an abandoned farm.

Your assistance may be required in gardening, farming, animal care and general maintenance. Imagine preparing fields and growing cocoa, banana and mango crops. Or building shelters for chicken, ducks, horses and other farm animals.

Composting and allied activities: A composting project may aim to reduce waste in an impoverished area. This activity can be clubbed with street tree and garden maintenance, and/or watering, weeding and organizing the community nursery.

Campus landscaping project: An eco project may involve green practices such as reducing the use of pesticide or planting native vegetation. You may be asked to assist with the non-technical aspects of environment research, such as collecting samples. Such projects are bound to be both adventurous and good learning opportunities for any eco-minded volunteer.

In return for your contribution, you can get free accommodation and meals courtesy of your host. Save a small fortune in travel costs whilst building authentic connections with the local people and culture. Register now to see the range of environment-oriented projects posted by hosts.
