Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
we are permaculture teachers and activists. we love to share our passion about permaculture principles and design, soil regeneration, biodiversity, resilience, food conservation, garden plant based cuisine and more.
We will be happy to teach some arabic or Tunisian and help workawayers have a rich cultural and learning experience.
We hope to learn new things with every workawayer about their passion and culture.
we need help in planting trees, preparing planting beds, ecoconstructions, maintenance of our houses and gardens...
a separate house with a bedroom, a living room, shower, fully equipped kitchen and a big garden is allocated just for volunteers (perfect for a couple).
We provide basic (vegan) groceries and expect volunteers to cook for themselves, and we may share some dinners in the main house whenever is possible.
What else ...
the house is 3km away from a beautiful beach and a costal forest. bicycles are available to travel around the city. our city is 45 min away from the city of Mahdia, Sfax and el Jem.
