We are wholesale growers for the plant nursery industry located in the pictures Lowveld area situated next to the Kruger National Park. I live and work on a small family farm close to White River Mpumalanga , I'm single but have 5 big Dobermans and a cat that lives in the house with me so you will have to be comfortable with close contact with them but not to worry you won't have to share a room with them ,We are constantly upgrading and expanding our nursery and various other jobs are available. If you love plants and getting your hands dirty and a bronze tan then this is the workaway position for you. Please note that most of the chores are outdoors and in the sun ,if you have a sensitive skin please come with waterproof sunscreen ,we only have mild winters and you will still get sunburned this time of the year!

You will learn a great deal about propagation ,cultivation of plants while being outdoors in a very beutiful area in south africa. If I can give potential workawayers some advice is to start with a host close to home to get some experience with the whole concept of workaway and then building on some good references
No skills are needed ,we do however require men currently with some basic handyman skills and restoration of the house ,we also need to do some invasive plant clearing next to the river on the property.
Description of help- volunteers will assist planting cuttings and seeds , the planting of various types of plants from seedling size into bags and pots , they will assist in fertilising of plants , maintenance on irrigation systems ,general maintenance and construction of nursery. There is 16 active beehives that needs constant maintenance so if you have experience and knowledge in this field we would appreciate your assistance. We also trying hard to recycle everything left over from 6 families on the farm ,a good cause that i think should be nr 1 priority on this PLANET for every individual .If you are under the age of 26 years and or have no references on your profile send link to your Facebook page with your request to volunteer in your message.

Accommodation is on the farm where the nursery is located next to a river . You will have a shared room with bathroom hot water and electricity with wifi , we have a maid taking care of the cleaning , washing of clothes and tiding up. You will need to help with preparing the food that I will provide. There's is no maid on Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays and cleaning will be required by yourselves. If you like peace and quiet except for the frogs and bird noise then you will enjoy your stay on this farm maybe even spot the Hippo in the river.
Take travel insurance when traveling to Africa its not called a 3rd world country for no reason. The Lowveld area is well known for its beutiful landscapes and the world famous Kruger national park being close by ,there's some really nice hiking trails and waterfalls, botanical garden , historical towns and fishing on the propery. There is various ways of local transport to most of the places in the lowveld area , collecting and dropping you of for your stay will be arranged in the Nelspruit and White River area. I highly recommend Lowveld Link Travel for means of transport direct from O.R. Thambo International airport to Whiteriver
