We are a very small family (1 father of 54 and his son of almost 7 years) with a small property (5 ha). The plan is to clear 4 hectares of land from grass and afforestation. The ground has already been leveled and provided with channels and beds. The soil will be planted with mainly melon, pineapple, sugar cane and other plants and (fruit) trees. It is sometimes hard work in burning sun. 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, 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 positive, with preference, non drinking or smoking volunteers where age or gender is not important.

The help mainly consists of felling of low to high grass, shrubs and low forestation. Plowing the ground. If you like it, you can also cook, clean, repair tools, do minor repairs to the house, everything is negotiable to provide a basis for an organic farm.
