Hi all, I'm currently in the process of establishing an Eco Farm on the mediterranean island of Malta. The partially finished farm is located in the limits of Marsaxlokk, specifically in a rural area near the sea called Delimara. The aim of this project is to establish an organic farm; to cultivate and boost local produce in a sustainable manner, while also preserving indigenous species that are nearly extinct from the island.
The island of Malta has a long history that finds its roots in the prehistorical ages. Travellers coming to Maltawill find ample historcial places to visit ranging from prehistorcial temples, to medevil cities and elaborate cathedrals. Malta is not rooted in the past, but it also offers a vast nightlife experience. More reasons why you should visit malta can be found in the following link: .
This project is a family run business.
IMPORTANT: Please note that for the foreseeable future we will not be accepting any workawayers, until the Covid-19 pandemic has settled in the EU. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Since the project is still in its infancy, workaways will have opportunties to learn what it takes to setup a farm, along with running a farm e.g:
Bee keeping Experience
Moreover, this experience will provide them with ample time to practice their english skills, since one of Malta's main languages is the english language.
Whereas for myself, this opportunity will allow me to meet different people, with their own unique and beautiful background.
Travelers that want to contribute for the completion of this life long dream will be helping with the construction of the actual farm along with the day to day farming needs, such as tending to animals, crop harvesting and crop plantation, construction of green houses, general maintenance, general construction (brick and mortar), irrigation and general plumbing, bee keeping and handling of farming machinery. Travelers are not necessarily required to have the expertise in all the above, and will be taught the know how when the need arises.
Workaways will not be asked for any payments, onthe otherhand we are ready to pay a minimum wage worth to any workaways that would like to help up in this project.
Full board accommodation. Workaways will be provided with a shared room (shared with other workawayers) in a rural environment with a breath taking sea view. The room also provides WiFi and a shared bathroom. The guests will be provided with 3 meals per day.
In their time off helpers can explore the island of Malta and its vast local history. Travelers can also enjoy the Maltese nightlife, while also having the opportunity to explore the island (you can practically cross the island via public transport in less than 2 hours).
