Host AG076

We are growing organic vegetables for the market in our "horta" near the house and we are attempting to regenerate the greater savannah surrounding us.

We want to work with fit and motivated people who are "hands-on". Work hours: About 6 hours per day at least five days a week.

Our approach utilises compost tea, green manures and water conservation through keyline design.

There is mixed accommodation: a double room, two permanent tipis/tents and a camper van. We accept people bringing their own camper also.

We won't host very young volunteers, so please do not request hosting if that is your case.

People with an employment background are particularly desirable. Any practical, motivated volunteers who show enthusiasm and carefulness are welcome.

If you have no transport you can hitch rides into town or the beach or borrow a bicycle. Sometimes we can offer lifts into town.
