  • Description


    Hi All, ready for a real experience. We like to invite you to join us (Jacqueline and Alwart) to build a permaculture farm in the jungle in Nayarit, Mexico.
    Location: San Ignacio, Bahía de Banderas, Nayarit, Mexico. 5 mins. from Sayulita.
    The farm is just starting. The idea is to build an organic orchard, a dry toilet, rain water capture system, vermicomposting, aquaponics, etc.
    San Ignacio has a tropical weather so there is a lot of humidity..
    The idea is to also have chickens for eggs production.
    We are a couple working in the project, have been doing that for about two years, and we need help to keep transforming the place into a sustainable area.
    We look for people with lots of energy to work and if possible some experience with permaculture. You will help us build everything from zero at this early stage, so you would also be involved in the research part. You will be asked to help the equivalent of maximum 25 hours per week (some of that time will be spent in doing research or will be distributed between am and pm hours).

    From San Ignacio you can move to San Pancho, Sayulita, Punta de Mita or Puerto Vallarta.
    You will need old clothes to work (boots, pants, long sleeve but fresh shirts) and also clothes for the day to day, bathing suit.
    Minimum time is three weeks.

    If you have any other questions let us know.
