  • Description

    Description

    We are a community of 10 eco-farms within walking distance (15 minutes). We need help with eco construction, animal care and permaculture gardening.

    Our eco farm is in the heart of the community and is where the earthship volunteer accommodation is situated.
    For meals you can use the kitchen. We divide the cost of any ingredients that are not from the garden.

    The exchange:
    We work 15 hours per week and we offer you the chance to learn about permaculture and natural building.

    The facilities have improved, we now have a gas hot shower and flushing toilet!

    There is solar electricity to charge a phone/laptop.

    There is currently no wifi although there are cafes with internet in the beautiful town of Monsanto.
