    Hi there!

    We are an international group of health food enthusiasts, located in the Azores, on the island Terceira.

    Our project owns 4 ha of beautiful and fertile fields on which we are planning to grow a variety of fruits and vegetables. The fields are organically certified.

    The produce is cutted, dehydrated and packed in our own small-scale factory in order to share the healthy, dehydrated snacks with the rest of the world.

    At the moment we grow Yacon, Physalis and Beets, and our first crops are ready for harvesting and transformation in the drying facilities. New plants are planted too and are already growing happy and strong. A large greenhouse is being built, were we are growing young seedlings during the whole year.

    We also grow a large variety of vegetables and herbs for our own use.

    And as you can imagine, this requires some strong, healthy, happy hands to work at!
    So, this is where you come in our story 🙂

    To give you an idea of what type of work we are doing, some examples of how a day at a Farm can look like:
    - Planting new plants
    - Weeding and Pruning
    - Harvesting
    - Cutting and packaging in the drying facilities
    - Taking out vulcanic stones from the soil
    - Light construction work or assistance - like construction of new greenhouses, painting, reparations etc.

    What we ask:

    - Enthusiastic and motivated people, who are not made of sugar and can resist the Azorean weather (we have literally 4 seasons in 1 day) - we can host maximum 2 people at the time!
    - A minimum commitment of 2 months
    - We are looking for people that have an affinity with healthy food. Experience is not required, although a good portion of responsibility, independence, tidiness, and cleanliness is valued

    What we offer:

    - A private bedroom in a spacious and entirely furnished house with ocean view on 5 min. Drive (15 min walk) to the fields (often to share with other workers/volunteers that work on the same project) - If you are a couple and/or want to bring your pet(s), please let us know. Usually there is no issue!
    - The house and fields are located Posto Santo, in Angra do Heroísmo, the main town of the island. The house is about 4.5 km from the center of Angra. You can walk to the center or use public transport (runs 3 times a day) and there is a car available for the team of volunteers.
    - A wonderful experience to live on a Vulcanic island in the middle of the Atlantic where you can enjoy your free time by hiking, watching whales, swim with dolphins, natural swimming pools, breathtaking nature, sea kayaking and jeep tours.
    - Terceira is known for its cultural richness, one of its cities is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Terceira has many traditional festivities throughout the year. The inhabitants of the island are warm and welcoming people.

    When you are interested and are available for at least 2 months, please send us an email!

    Hope to see you soon.
    Warm greetings,

    Abby, on behalf of the Team
