We are an off grid, permaculture farm in a remote yet not too remote area of South Africa. The farm is in the garden route which is also known as Eden. It really does feel like Eden being engulfed with beautiful mountains, streaming rivers and many waterfalls through the thick indigenous forrest down through to 5 beautiful lakes along this magnificent coast through the lovely lagoons into the humble ocean.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
Skills that you could pick up are permaculture, arboriculture, building, carpentry, general farm up-keep, bee keeping, nutrition, gut health, healing with food, moving meditation and the practice of the dao flow.
We also have a huge interest in Biodynamics and the knowledge already discovered may most certainly be shared.
The farm is off the grid and also self sustaining to a degree, however self sustaining means much work needs to be put into the produce in the greenhouses.
We operate within the permaculture principles to the best of our abilities and we are in the process of restoring the land by reintroducing indigenous tree's and plants and enriching the soil life.
The intention is to create a hub for vibrating harmonising frequencies into the collective resonating matrix.
This means that as a volunteer, we would like you to have an affinity with the overall intention and vision of positively affecting mass psychology. We are focused on having people in the project who radiate harmony and balance within themselves and towards others.
This is the foundation upon which this space is being founded.
Volunteers who haven't yet understood personal responsibility cannot get involved here in these initial phases.
Volunteers who are very new to the journey with their personal development in relinquishing the victim consciousness, can come for assistance 5 to 10 years down the line when things are more setup.
Most of the help required is general farm work to keep the farm on a self sustaining level and general maintenance with the structures and all the plants and trees.
The work could involve carpentry, building, logging, timber prepping, painting, oiling, sanding, varnishing, cleaning, bee keeping, grass cutting, composting work, pruning tree's, maintaining vegetable gardens, irrigation adjustments, water preservation, fire wood chopping, clearing fire breaks, general gardening, weeding, shoveling soil, shoveling shit, nurturing the plant life and beautifying the landscape. Farm life can be idealistic coming from the city but it is not for the faint hearted. The work is humbling, sometimes it requires us to be on our hands and knees.
There are a few structures to be built and renovations to be made this year. Next on the list are the renovations to the water reservior and tower over the reservior. The eco pool is almost finished but landscaping around the pool will be happening during March and April. The chalets are to be built after the water storage has been completely setup. It is an exciting time of growth here and we look forward to your enthusiasm and open heart.
There are however always many various tasks to be tackled, for example fencing, a labyrinth, shelving in the shed, installing a garage door, workshop deck.
This is a good overview of all the tasks ahead for the next year.
This host offers a language exchange
This host has indicated that they are interested in sharing their own language or learning a new language.
You can contact them directly for more information.
We have a small cabin for volunteers or perhaps a decent tent. We have outdoor showers and a comfortable compost toilet.
We offer rice, lentils, split peas, hemp seed and moringa powder. Anything else will have to be provided by yourself.
Generally we tend to accept the more committed volunteer over the travelling volunteer looking for a lovely learning pitstop... but who knows, if you happen to have a strong affinity with the project or the people on this land and your timing is good, as well as your request filled with enthusiasm for this project, for which we are tools ourselves... then you might be warmly welcomed. So allow yourself to express your dignity and write a detailed introduction.
Please to be noted... drinking alcohol is barred and smoking not approved. We do not share this wonderful eco environment with the birds and the bee's, they share it with us and we are simply the guardians of this land and the tools of this project. With this understanding we express our respect for nature using our actions. Water is revered and treated with utmost respect, by using the compost toilet at all times rather than the flush toilet for example, or using the bushes to urinate.
There is always an initial 1 week probation period, then again 4 weeks into your stay. If a volunteer makes some serious damages, causes for serious risk or harm towards the land or any other people on the land within the first few days. Then you will be asked to leave given 12 hours notice.
We regret to inform you that the chances of us accepting your request, if you are younger than 23 years of age, will be very small.
