Full description:We are looking for volunteers for our art collective and organic farm in Orosi where we are constructing earthships which are buildings made from recycled materials and growing crops
Additional info:It is free for volunteers to camp at on the farm. We have cooking facilities and rain catches for water as well as local springs. At the moment we club together to buy food from town and cook communally though eventually the farm will provide food for volunteers. The minimum stay here is one week but generally volunteers stay on longer than they intend. Please bring clothes that you do not mind getting dirty and rubber boots. If you are able to bring your own camping gear with you this would be great, though it is not a requirement. Transport from Orosi to the farm is provided, though we encourage volunteers to bring everything they expect to need with them from Orosi, so that we are not making many unnecessary trips between town and the farm. For hard working, like minded volunteers there is a possibility of staying on more permanently as our neighbors on the farm.
