    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We would love to have you at the R&D Center. You will learn about the world of hydro and aquaponics on a theoretical and practical level. You will have the ability to help create and conduct experiments with new systems with the team. Moti, the owner, and the rest of the team, work hands-on with you to teach all the necessary methods in the field. The team consists of local residents of the area who love to work together with people from around the world and exchange ideas.

    Maintaining and growing vegetation in the greenhouse
    Maintaining the systems for proper growth
    Building new hydroponic systems from ground-up
    Conducting experiments
    Conducting market research
    Help with maintaining social media platforms
    Translating text for the use of the company
    and more.

    We currently have a cute trailer with a bed, electricity, and a fan. The "zula" also has an outdoor sitting area and a hammock to chill in. Feel free to arrange the place however you would like! We love camping, so volunteers are encouraged to bring a tent and camp out on our land. We have both an indoor and outdoor shower, as well as an indoor toilet and a lovely kitchen area.
    weekly allowance for food will be provided by us and there is close by supermarket.
