  • Description


    At our 15 hectar Farm we are experimenting new organic planting methods (i.e. Terra Preta with biochar) in vegetables, corn, rice and fruit trees. Postharvest techniques like drying, preserving, storing, processing and marketing are also important parts of our project. The aim is to increase the income of the local farmers.

    Applicants must be fluent in English. Since you will work most of the time with Filipinos you must be able to adopt their way of live. In short you must be a friendly and uncomplicated person. The project is not suitable for people who want to realise their esotheric ideas or religious missions...

    Tigaon ist a rural munincipallity with about 45.000 inhabitants located 425 KM southeast of Manila at the main island of Luzon. There is no mass tourism, you will deal mostly with Filipino people. Most of them are fluent in English.

    The beach with many tiny resorts for the local folks is about 3 KM away. Tigaon has a beautiful tennis court and to the world class wakeboard and waterski Camarines Watersport Complex it`s just a 50 minutes car ride. The nearby Mt Isarog with its virgin rainforest is a paradise for hikers.

    The nearest cities are Naga (45 KM) and Legaspi (110 KM), both with complete facillities like airport, shopping malls, hospitals etc.
