  • Description

    Description

    Live on a 50 acre family run organic plantation in Goa/India and help us run our farmstay. Our cottages are set in the midst of a tropical plantation. A peaceful environment with plenty of birds and butterflies, an adjoining Wildlife Sanctuary, good for forest and village walks, and the scenic Dudhsagar River is located nearby. It’s a good place to simply laze around and enjoy nature (there's a pool, too), but you could also do some treks and interesting day trips – there’s heritage properties and churches dating to Portuguese times, a prehistoric rock carving site, waterfalls, an ancient Mahadev Temple in the forest... basically, another side of Goa. CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR HELP WITH COPYWRITING FOR AN ONLINE PROJECT (mainly english language). BIRD ENTHUSIASTS ALSO WELCOME TO HELP SET UP A BIRD STUDIO.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The farmstay is owned and run by a widely traveled Indian - German - Indonesian - Russian (yes!) family, that is now based mostly in Goa. We receive guests from India and all over the world. You can spend time here to connect with nature, learn about organic farming and Indian cooking, laze around our pool and also see some amazing sites.

    Help

    We require help with the day to day activities associated with running our farmstay (preparing for check ins/after checkouts, help in the kitchen and with serving meals). We also require help with marketing on an ongoing basis - a social media campaign, production of short video clips/photo sets and write ups about the farm, different farm activities and nearby sightseeing options. There's also a long list of other activities that could be worked upon if you have the right interest and skills (aqua/hydroponics, yoga, educative children's activities etc). Write in to discuss details.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    You would be living in our volunteer cottage; we usually have one to two volunteers at the plantation, so you may need to share the room. In exceptional cases (full occupancy of guest accommodation and overlap in volunteer periods) it may be necessary to spend a couple of nights in our house which is also located at the plantation.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The plantation is a quiet place in the lap of nature. You can swim at the nearby river or in the natural water panorama pool, go for treks in the forest and in and around nearby villages. The nearest beach is Colva (about 35km). Public transport is available and you could go to the coast to spend some off-time.
