  • Description


    New Eco Lodge that will be founded on permaculture and organic practices and will aim to be self sufficient and have a very low environmental footprint. We are easy going, fun and love what we do, looking for people with a real passion for the same. We are happy to share the knowledge we have and even more so to learn from those who come through the lodge. We also want to involve the community as much as possible and will help try and educate especially the children on sustainable agriculture, recycling and other eco friendly activities.

    Everything from planting tomatoes, to harvesting them, to cooking them, to just admiring them. We will have 100's of varieties of herbs, vegetables, fruits and medicinal plants to look after. Lots of outdoor work. Eco projects will include eco toilets, compost water heating, wind power, solar power. Work in our kitchen will include preparation, helping with meals, we will also be making our own marmalades, jams, pickles, powders, tonics, pastes and whatever else we can think of. We plan to make vinegars, wines, beers and our own essential oils as well. So your work would involve some or all of these to some degree or another.

    Oh and working with clients in all manner of ways will be required, making drinks, chatting, cleaning social areas and rooms, mainly making sure they are happy and have everything they need during their stay, oh and some bar work as we experiment with our next cocktail recipe will no doubt be on the agenda at some point.
