  • Description


    The house is in Torquay, Devon. The house is being made into flats.

    The flats are being converted using mostly upcycled and ecological materials, they will be showcasing some new to the UK eco materials in order to promote the use of these.

    The flats when completed will be rented out and support my conservation work saving rainforests and conservation.

    This project is built on the back of a dessert regeneration project which I set up and ran in Spain. We are taking the knowledge from there and gained from helping projects all over the world and using this on a day-to-day basis to progress sustainability Internationally. So I'm looking for short and medium-term volunteers but also people that may be able to in future help in the rainforest in Indonesia.

    Volunteers are required for building, gardening, graphic design, writing, editing, film, marketing, architecture, eco construction, website design, web development, NGO experience.

    When people volunteer here, there is the chance to learn about ecological construction methods, techniques and design and also to contribute to restoring nature here and participate in conservation, peace and social projects helping various countries.

    I'm planning on us writing an course to teach people new skills and participate in planting of forests and the preservation of existing forests. There are currently opportunities to help more in building or more in conservation.

    The area of Torquay is a beautiful coastal area in Devon, one of the Souths most scenic counties. There is fantastic hiking both on the coast and in nearby Dartmoor National Park. I provide accommodation which is your own room. I cook at least one meal per day and there is an open fridge. The bus very closeby, and train station too. In the house currently there are some professional builders and also some people working both on the building and conservation. Any professional building or marketing, film, writing skills it's possible to negotiate payment.

    I play guitar and have a mini studio here with various musical instruments here, so always happy to host musicians. Also any Spanish speakers. I speak some Spanish and want to improve. The house is five minutes to the town centre, the harbour, restaurants, cafes, bars and nightclubs. The beach and woods are five mins away.

    They can learn and no doubt teach alot. I work in peace work and environment sustainability. The project is working towards saving rainforests, which I have been very much involved with. They will learn about eco gardening, upcycling and linking this type of work to both peace and International environment work.
