    Hi everybody,
    We are Leila, Anna and Gaspar, a Polish / French couple with a 3 years old little girl, living up the hill of Portsmouth. This is where we're making our home, the lush rainforested island of Dominica. Our plan is to create a 'bubble house' surrounded by vastly cultivated organic garden.

    During your stay you will be able to learn alternative construction techniques that are relatively easy, very resilient to extreme weather conditions and what is important you can 'do it yourself'. As we are both diving instructors it will be our pleasure to show you the underwater world of Dominica. You will enjoy not only the pristine Caribbean waters, but also various hot springs, waterfalls and rivers. *Please note that at the moment we do not have full equipment to go diving with you, however we can join you and go diving with local dive center ( 2 dives would be around 110$). We know plenty of good spots for freediving!

    There are not many places like this left in the World, where the jungle is still as thick and as untouched by human. A garden of Eden that supports thousands of plants and animal species. The jungle is our pharmacy, our grocery shop, and our home supplies. Our local friends help us to understand how to live at peace in harmony with nature. Last but not least, you will be a part of our team to share the knowledge about a wide concept of permaculture.
    Join us and enjoy the vibe!

    Various skills will be needed for this extraordinary project. The main two areas are building and gardening. We will also need a hand for daily community life as cooking and babysitting.
    Polish & French speakers, carpenters, electricians, mechanics, engineers & creative babysitters will have the priority.

  • Alojamiento


    All volunteers will be hosted in a house next to the family house. We can offer our tiny dome house and wooden cabin with double bed, all with mosquito net . Concerning the bathroom, there is a compost toilet next to the house and a natural warm pool 3 minutes from the place.
    All meals (vegetarian) will be prepared in our house. We are happy to provide local basic food during your working days. Please note that if you are fussy about food, carving for fancy imported products like cream, cheese or yoghurt... you will have to buy it yourself.

    Dominica has countless natural attractions and wonders. The longest hiking trail in the Caribbean called Waitukubuli is made of 14 segments, nearly 200 km long. One of the most magical hike leads you to the Boiling Lake! From the natural hot springs to the countless waterfalls, from the coral reefs to the wild rivers, the nature is limitless. The Caribbean sea is within walking distance and offers great snorkeling sites.
    Come and enjoy a spice rum at the rasta bar on the beach, meet up with the Kalinago, one of last natives of the Caribbean or take part of Mas Domnik, the local carnival.
