*Currently seeking last minute volunteer to help immediately for now till 15 June. Now taking applications for September and October.
We are an organic Garden cooperative in which our goal is to create a socially responsible and community based project that feeds its members and connects them to where the food comes from. I also am a rare plants seed bank and seedlings producer. I am very excited about what I do and love to teach people about sustainability and have fun doing it. Join us!
We only take helpers from mid March or April through October.
We only take volunteers for minimum of 4 weeks. No short term stays. This is a real learning and volunteering experience and farm stay, if you are not interested in learning about sustainable practices and permaculture or just want a free place to stay this is not the right place for you.
