Whether you are a volunteer or a career breaker with a keen interest in agricultural issues, we have a program that will suit you, your qualifications and your level of experience.
Volunteers on this program will be responsible for helping to maintain all aspects of the farm including animal care, crop growing, flower production, and land management. The farm produces a variety of crops, including small quantities of plantain, papaya, carrots, onions, yam, coco yams, and sweet pepper. The farm is also home to rabbits, guinea pigs, and chickens.
Volunteer coordinators will assist our volunteers to arrange school trips to the farm to educate local children. Children are then educated on the process of growing crops in a sustainable environment. They also learn how to take care of animals and how to identify seeds. Volunteers receive training from local specialists in the different techniques involved and have an agricultural text-book which is part of the curriculum to use with the school children.
Due to the heat and the physical nature of the work, volunteers on the farm typically work from 8am to 12 noon. Those who want to work in the afternoons are encouraged to help at the local village school. In the future we will be hoping to develop a garden into a sustainable, organic farm and we will continue to work closely with the local community, passing on a vital awareness of conservation issues to a new generation of African children.
