    Description

    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.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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:
    Farming Experience
    Bee keeping Experience
    Construction
    General Maintenance
    Animal Care

    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.
