  • Description

    Description

    Our farm is a permaculture project based on the principles of agroforestry. Located in Togo, West Africa, it aims to develop a self-sufficient food and energy farm by giving the trees their space in the African rural landscape. More than just a farm, the idea is to create an ecological and educational center for the exchange of knowledge between the different actors. This will promote a healthy and harmonious lifestyle with the environment. The main task is to reforest the 28 hectares of land with various native and fruit trees of the region.

    We are at the beginning of the project, we have a lot of work to do, at this moment we are focusing on reforesting a tropical forest and an edible forest. It is a good opportunity for volunteers to learn about agroforestry. We also need help in the garden. We love the exchange of ideas and practice of art and recycling. We want volunteers to feel at home and in contact with African nature. We are also doing bio constructions, so all builders and dreamers are most WELCOME!! We are living on a farm, so there is always a lot to do.

    The volunteers will work 5 hours de day (from 7:30 to 12:30) 5 days a week. As part of the exchange we will provide you accommodation and food 3 times a day.

    Accommodation

    Candidates must have a great willingness to help! Indeed, life in the bush is not the easiest. Living conditions are precarious. At the moment we do not have electricity, but we do have a way for charging electronics. We cook on the wood fire and the accommodation is camping. We will provide you a tent and bedding. We hope that soon we can welcome you in better conditions. There is also the possibility to rent accommodation in a village at 40 min from the project.
