We started a long-term, large scale sustainability project, three years ago. To do it, we decided to start with a model farm that has been mostly experimental up until now. We've been using agro-forestry techniques and are building a replicable model for both production and local value chain development. We live in the farm with 10 dogs and an autistic younger brother who is really great. We also share the farm with a crazy sheep, a large pig and many, many chicken, ducks and geese.
The farm, is a live tropical ecosystem with areas of conservation, so please keep in mind you might encounter non-dangerous spiders, ants, scorpions and very rarely, but it does happen, a snake. So if you are afraid, and will "loose your cookies" at the sight of any of these; even if you studied environmental sciences or management or biology, we might not be your best option.

We have been working for more than 3 years in a larger project, for which the farm is a model farm that is meant to organize and teach local producers and integrate local value chains. We have a commercial company that delivers full pantry solutions to more than 600 families in the Maya Riviera.
Ce projet peut impliquer des enfants. Pour en savoir plus, consultez nos directives et conseils ici.
We have a 4 hectare - 10 acre organic farm 25 minutes from Cancun. It has been left a little and we need to get it back into shape. Work includes: feeding chicken, garden cleaning and pruning, making and applying organic fertilizer, sprouting and planting, building chicken coops. etc.

We have a shared Mayan house with a wood loft in the middle of the garden with inflatable beds (4 people) If it is full, you may have to camp in tents or sleep in a hammock. Shared bathrooms with outdoor showers, outdoor kitchen and common areas for eating and common areas in the middle of a beautiful garden.
We produce and we distribute organic and local food. So there is always plenty to eat. Volunteers usually cook for themselves and sometimes we cook together. We provide plenty of food for that from what we produce/sell, some people like to complement that with stuff they buy and bring themselves.
There is small store within walking distance ( 1 km). We have a common outdoor kitchen and eating space. We've had vegans and vegetarians stay, it is a matter of adjusting and being proactive with the cook so she separates some food before mixing it with animal products or cooking yourself.
We are 30 minutes away from Cancun, 30 minutes away from Puerto Morelos, an hour away from Playa del Carmen. There is a lot to do close by. Public transport is fairly simple from here.

Internet can be slow at the farm. A person earning income from virtual work may have to pay for an additional modem, about 20 USD per month or so. Plenty of space to work, in outdoor (enclosed) common areas.
