Project Description

GROL Garden offers volunteer work exchanges- which ranges between 25-30 hours a week in exchange for food, accommodation, hands-on experience, and yoga classes on our Property. 

We are always looking for interested volunteers.

We try to incorporate our volunteers unique skills sets into the mix. We've had landscapers, laborors, engineers, yoga teachers, massage therapists, artists, chefs, and other skilled individuals who were able to make contributions outside the typical gardening tasks.

HISTORY

GROL Garden started as a small garden growing cucumbers and sunflowers mid-summer 2012


While researching information about organic gardening, Ray, the founder, came across Permaculture. She stumbled across a video of Quail Springs


She checked out their website and discovered that they had an upcoming PDC, which she enrolled in along friend Emily Germano.


Ray returned to Cyprus in January 2013 and developed a plan to take the Garden in a serious direction. Since then, GROL has taken on a few managers and hosted over 100 volunteers from around the world. 


Our project is still quite young, but growing rapidly. We produce herbs, micro greens, a wide variety of vegetables.


Our team currently consists of 4 permanent managers and a steady stream of international volunteers. 


In 2015, we hope to host educational hands-on workshops as we build our eco-village and set up a food-forest

 

We are always looking for interested volunteers.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
