We live in a peaceful coastal village. In spare time one can visit the beaches. Mandrem beach is around 1km from the farm. Morjim beach know for olive ridley turtle is around 6 km and Arambol beach which was a hippie beach in 70s also know for sweet water lake is 5 kms away. All the places are accessible by local transport. Goa has bike takis and it's more convenient to hire a two wheeler to travel around.
We need help in complete running of the farm. Depending on the timing work keeps changing.
Some generic tasks include clearing farm of every trace of plastic, planting trees, fencing, tilling, feeding animals, helping preserve or make finished product from farm product (like kokum, kokum sherbet, amchur or pickle) digging trench, watering plants any other handy work needed.
We have 2 spare rooms in the house that will be shared by the volunteers. It's a basic village house, matress, bedsheet pillows and blankets will be provided. Bathroom and toilet will be shared. So one needs to help keep it clean. Washer is available for clothes. We expect you to stay as part of our family.
We will be serving 3 meals a day. Breakfast lunch dinner. Simple basic home cooked goan food. Tea or coffee twice.
We cook vegetarian food more often with fish included once in a while. If a volunteer is vegan that can be taken care of as most of goan veg food is cooked without dairy.
