Description

In this program, volunteers will join a non-profit and will help and support the local host center in their daily tasks. The tasks depend on the current needs and can take place in the field, such as planting, weeding, harvesting, ground covering or watering, or in the greenhouse,sowing and organizing. There is also the possibility to participate and help in other activities in the warehouse related to producing baskets composition, product storage in boxes and on shelves and labeling. All these activities are developed under the supervision of the organization’s staff and integrated into the training dynamics of the project beneficiaries. Through these tasks, volunteers have the opportunity to get involved in a holistic production management system that applies locally adapted systems having into consideration the regional existing conditions.

If you’re planning to volunteer in winter, you should be prepared to have lower temperatures of 41 degrees Fahrenheit to 59 degrees Fahrenheit (5 degrees Celsius to 15 degrees Celsius), so come prepared with warm clothing. The different tasks depend on the time of the year so it’s important the volunteer comes prepared to help out according to the current needs.
