  • Description


    We are a very small family (mostly 1 father of 53 and his son of almost 5 years end 2 grandparents) with a small property (6 ha). The plan is to clear 5 hectares of land from grass and afforestation. Then the ground will be leveled. Finally, the soil will be planted with mainly sugar cane and other plants and (fruit) trees. It is hard work in often burning sun. If you like hard sports where you sweat and certainly lose weight, this is your chance to turn your work into a sport. For the rest it is a lot of peace and thought, eating fruits and vegetables from the garden and drinking various natural drinks. In your free time we, or you can go to the capital of Surinam or make various trips to the jungle. There is a lot to do if you are adventurous. We need 2 strong and positive, with preference, non drinking or smoking volunteers where age or gender is not important.
