  • Beschreibung


    Hi my name is Ute. I run an Eco-resort in Palolem, South Goa. It is a coconut grove transformed into a tropical jungle over the last 25 years only 5 mins walk from Palolem and Patnem beach.
    We believe in sustainability, that humans and nature can live together harmoniously, creating as little waste as possible and making our home a better place to live.
    We compost all our kitchen waste, recycle whatever we can and generally try to keep consumption of materials to a minimum.

    We have 22 cabanas and a hostel all built from locally sourced organic material. A restaurant situated under swaying parachutes and the kitchen serves healthy organic vegan and vegetarian food. An ayurvedic centre that provides massages and an Ayurvedic doctor for any ailments or injuries. We have live music, yoga classes and various workshops. We have 3 spaces that are used for workshops, yoga, salsa etc.
    Recently we have started a small organic agriculture project and require volunteers who enjoy some physical work, as we are in the beginning stages of digging trenches and small ponds for water conservation and water harvesting. Otherwise we need people to help make rooms and public areas beautiful with painting and other maintenance, to help sustain our jungle with some gardening or various other tasks.
    We prefer volunteers to stay for a month at least (provided of course, they enjoy their stay here🙂) as we get to know each other better and they get more integrated into the daily life here.
    Workawayers will stay at our hostel (which includes female-only accommodation for those who want it), but generally this means that we have less space for workawayers during high season. For more adventurous souls we do have a couple of private spaces up a ladder, with a great view over the jungle, available throughout the year.

    Working with us could help one learn more about real-life application of sustainable living. One could learn about how we can create and sustain ourselves with minimum impact on nature and our environment, and hopefully teach us a thing or two. Apart from the above, one gets an opportunity to hone their skills across a wide range, apply them, and come across like minded people from across all walks of life. South Goa has a rich international community which is appropriately very open to all walks of life.

    Right now as the season slowly begins we are focusing on an organic garden for our restaurant so as of right now, we are only looking for volunteers who enjoy gardening, farming and outdoor tasks.

    As the season builds up, we need more help preparing our rooms, which might include painting (including murals and designs if you're talented), cleaning, fixing things and other general maintenance. During high season (January and late December) you'll like find your work leaning towards outdoor work.

    Recently we have started a small organic agriculture project and require volunteers who enjoy some physical work, as we are in the beginning stages of digging trenches and small ponds for water conservation and water harvesting. This work requires Workaways who are physically fit, able and motivated. We understand that not everyone is up for this, but we generally have more space for WorkAwayers who are.

    Otherwise we always need help at our resort with outdoor tasks suck as gardening and various tasks.

    South Goa is rich in nature; the quiet and calm environment along with many beautiful beaches around, gives a traveler much to explore and appreciate. Being close to the Western Ghats (Mountain Range) also makes Goa very diverse. There are many waterfalls, rivers and dams to visit, along with wildlife sanctuaries and cultural temples and churches . Apart from nature, travellers from across the country and the world visit Palolem, making it a place of diverse cultural values. One can also join the many varieties of workshops that are conducted in this part of South Goa.
