    Descripción

    We are Americans in Belize for 3 years. Our farm is located in the lovely village of Big Falls in the Toledo district of Belize. We are a couple with a sweet and energetic almost 3 year old girl and a baby boy. We are seeking a mother’s helper as well as a farm hand, so a couple might be a good fit! But if you’re a single and have experience with babies or farming we are open to one volunteer too! We are also open to families with children or groups of friends. We are seeking like minded individuals to join us and help us, so here is a bit about us. Please reach out if you feel a resonance!
    We love to prepare delicious meals and we eat as clean as possible, we are into permaculture, music and art, yoga and mindfulness and like to consider ourselves peaceful warriors. We are learning about permaculture as we go and it’s really fun and interesting! We care deeply for the earth and are honored to be able to tend to this land. We are particular about use of anything chemical on our farm, so please bring all natural toiletries and products.
    Currently eating from our farm: coconuts, plantain, banana, cassava, chaya, cocoyam, pineapple, herbs. Our trees and garden are young, so what’s not bearing yet we buy from other excellent organic farmers in the area.
    We are 420 Friendly, hard working and motivated, but time for creativity and relaxation is also a part of each day.
    Please no chemical tobacco smokers, we would consider light organic tobacco users ( if smoke is far away from the baby), please no heavy drinkers.
    We have a dog and a cat both with big personalities!
    Punta Gorda Town is a 30-40 minute bus ride away. There is a lot to explore in Toledo district and we encourage some days off. Occasionally we are up for excursions with our guests in the area if you want to pitch in for gas!
    Internet is available at the farm, though we usually shut it off between 10pm-6am.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Our area is truly a gem! It is so diverse. Each cultural group here has something interesting to learn from (Mayans, Kriol, Garifuna, East Indian, Mennonite, Chinese). In our back yard there are Mayan ruins, chocolate farms, river tubing and zip lining. A half hour away you reach the coast at Punta Gorda where you can set out to sea for snorkeling, island hopping and fishing.

    The mother’s helper would play with the baby, help feed her, bathe her etc. all alongside me (mom). I’d love to be able to work a bit on my jewelry making while the baby has a loving companion helping her explore her books and toys, play in the garden, take walks, do arts and crafts. I’d also love some help with meal prep and really enjoy cooking creative meals with people. The farmhand would spend mornings and afternoons helping my partner Will planting trees, gardening, chopping the land, building, landscaping. We have a mini tractor and some weed wackers to help make the manual labor easier.
    People who’s skills overlap are great too! You can hang out with the baby and work at the farm!
    Household duties and helping with the pets is needed too!
