    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Sustainable living practices and opportunities to volunteer in other areas of Nairobi.

  • Help


    No experience is particularly required, though we are looking particularly for creatives and volunteers happy to do quite physical labour and are happy to learn. People with natural construction experience, carpenters and other practical skills are a plus. We are also mostly Permaculture enthusiasts and designers and work along these principles to create kitchen gardens and common spaces.

    An exciting opportunity to volunteer in the creation of an Eco Farm has arrived, located in the outskirts of Nairobi City. Here you will take part in daily farm work which includes tending to both livestock and the food gardens. Superadobe/earthbag building and other natural building techniques will also be used in building an outdoor kitchen and keyhole gardens. We will also be doing a Rocket stove and oven in this building building. We are also building a vermicomposting toilet and shower building just to name a few activities. The site is located in the wild, scenic plains on the edge of Nairobi, just behind the international airport. We have a seasonal river passing through the 5 acre private property and there is also presence of wildlife and resident rare birds. Volunteers will also help with every stage of the build from design to implementation and furniture making.
