Help with Eco Projects
In general, volunteers work about seven hours a day, with a shortened work day on Friday and a day off on Saturday. The type of work varies with the season, but common activities include planting trees, laying down fertilizer/compost, weeding, constructing stone terraces, or constructing channels that help bring rain-waters into the valley.
We have a special cabin just for our volunteers, also made from a converted train car. The cabin can comfortably hold up to three volunteers and includes a bathroom with shower and a kitchenette with refrigerator. There is a beautiful view of the sunrise from the volunteer cabin's door.
Our farm cultivates a wide array of fruit trees, including apple, apricot, avocado, guava, lemon, nectarine, olive, orange, pomelo, peach, and pomegranate.
We model our agricultural techniques on those of the ancient Nabateans. Like them, we built and planted our orchards on stone terraces in the valley in order to capture water during the seasonal flash floods. Around the house we also have a large vegetable garden, goats for cheese, and chickens for eggs.
