Long story short..
I decided to escape from civilization to the jungle ^^
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
My name is Aga i started to build a ecological hostel but needed to move, luckly i managed to take the project with me to a new location so now we are located in a different spot, but with the same ideas, on a friend's land.
The place is located in the middle of Belize next to the juuungle so be prepared for sss
The basics are covered: hammock or tent to sleep,
You get 2 meals a day for your work for around 4-5 hours a day
(means breakfast and lunch)
You want to have dinner, you have to work more or you buy your own food.
Compost toilet, bath in the Creek with our lovely fish or in our new made shower (bucket shower) ^^
No filtered water here as water is coming from the mountains so either drink the water mother nature gives us or the plastic one that supports big companies.
We (means; 27chickens,6dogs,2horses,1cat, me and mother nature) share food, water and space, so you must love animals, not just tolerate them. As the dogs are always there, When you sleep, walk, run, poop and eat.. Especially when you eat ^, ^
We don't use chemicals as we share the water, no one wants to drink your shampoo or soap.. Especially the fish.
So there are many alternative
Some of them I wrote below otherwise Google can sirve you for more information.
The basic rules are simple;
-You use something, take care of it!
(means; clean the tent, dishes and the area after you leave)
-you take a tool, bring it back where it belongs
-you start a task, finish it if not today, tomorrow
-do your dishes, dishwasher is broke
-you see garbage, pick it up
-recycling recycling recycling
-you go shopping take a bag, don't bring a new plastic bag with you
-don't kill a spider because you are afraid, fear is not an excuse to kill
-don't waste food, water or energy
And respect mother nature and all her children as you are not her only child.
Basic duties ;
Helping with the animals
Helping cleaning the area
As some of the volunteers have not quite understood the 'jungle' part II will explain a but more.
Jungle/nature means bugs, a lot of bugs..
If you feel like using "OFF" then off and you go..
As we are trying to rase bees we do not tolerate any ANY kind of chemicals
Coconut oil or tea tree oil are good repellants too. You don't like the smell of the oils Google other eco options.
Also are long sleeves a good protection.
So flip flops are good on the beach, here you might need something more covering.
Long pans, long sleeves, good shoes, something to cover your head.. This is the best outfit to work.

As it is suppose to be a ecological hostel where the nature plays a big part, surtain things are not welcome; cosmetics / shampoo or others - we don't want the drinking water to be contaminated, as it is also the living environment of the fish and other animals. But don't worry, nature has some products for you. A plant (as you may guess) is a natural amazing shampoo and soap. If there should be non because of the season, standard soap is welcome (less perfumed possible). You will see that in our creek , we have more than just great clean water, we also have a fish spa so be kind to them and do not bring any chemicals into ther living space.
If you need cream or lotions, there is coconut oil, a natural way to put some moisture and vitamins or our skin. The creams and lotions contain chemicals and can not really last in high temperatures. You can buy som e on the way or at you lace, we are doing coco oil our selfs.
Try to not use sprays or perfume, we will try to attract bees for the future honey. We are making a natural,basted on herbs, anti repellant. You can also get some on your way.
You need to wash your cloths? Just check natures 'washing nuts'.
..... In other words all natural...

Depending on your 'will' of learning you can get all sorts of experience and knowledge.
You either will learn that you can not live without luxury and chemicals
Such as electricity, internet, hot shower, pillow, all sorts of poisoning chemicals..
Or you will learn the opposite and this way you might save the environment.
