Volunteer opportunities in the Amazon...

Posted by Cynthia Robinson almost 9 years ago

Permaculture Work-Study Volunteer Hands On Intensive September 1 – October 15, 2011 Volunteers are required to stay for a minimum of 10 days during this 6 week period and are welcome to stay for the full adventure.

This fall we have one of our traveling Permaculture instructors, Kyle Murray, visiting as a special guest volunteer coordinator guiding work-study volunteers in some amazing projects. This is an opportunity to learn in action. Volunteers are required to stay for  a minimum of 10 days during this 6 week period and are welcome to stay for the full adventure. Opportunities for long term stay are also possible.

Volunteers will have the opportunity to learn through hands on work in the following areas: 
• Establishing and maintaining a tree Nursery
• Preparation and planting of a Cacao orchard
• Agroforestry (early stages of food forest development, proper fruit tree pruning,  selective harvesting and more)
• Earthworks for soil building and reforestation
• Rainwater Harvesting
• Terra Preta Soil building research
• Growing vegetables in the tropics
• Advanced land survey and mapping
• and quite a bit more

You should:
• be resilient enough to cope with off the grid, basic living conditions
• be fit for hard physical work
• appreciate and enjoy the value of another culture
• value a challenge for the growth that it offers you in your life.
• Expect to get sweaty and dirty
