favorite this post Come and help us on our small farm in Nicaragua (2017) hide this posting unhide

We are a nicaraguan family and we have a small farm located in a rural area close from Jinotepe and Pueblos Blancos.

The land is flat and currently it´s only used to fruit production (tangerines trees) once a year. We also have coffe plants. We are thinking in developing and implementing organic food and medicinal gardens on the property.

At this summer season, we are looking for volunteers to helping to elaborate a permaculture design plan for our small farm.

Looking for someone who is:
Honest, responsible, enthusiastic, healthy, creative and young person.
Able to take initiative.
People with basic spanish( to interview) or interested in learning...
People with capacity of adapt to a simple lifestyle.
People interested in staying for long term ( 3 months or more)
We prefer candidates with demonstrable experience or skills in farming, permaculture, natural building.

Volunteer Benefits:

Enjoy the Nature during your staying.
Possibility of interact and know the communities and towns around the farm.
Learn or improve your spanish.
Free camping.( summer season)
Facility to visit nearest touristic cities like Granada, Masaya and picturesque towns like Catarina and San Juan de Oriente.

We don´t have animals.
Cell phone signal is very good.
The area is not touristic, but it has a lot potential of community-based rural tourism. It´s a safe place and far away from noise.

And WiFi signal???: You can to get free WiFi in public parks ( 2 kilometers from the farm). If you are interested in being volunteer, send us your resume and a short description explaining why reason do you want to participate, Why are you interested in coming? and also write the permaculture projects in whom you have been involved.

We prefer to talk face to face, if you are not in Nicaragua, we can meet us via skype firstly.

We would like to explore other possibilities of sustainable designs and economical buildings. Maybe it could become in a future place to impart permaculture courses, Yoga classes, etc.

This is not a place with defined tasks to do every day but a place where you can proposal your own work activities. ( Cleaning tasks is mostly in winter season,( May- November) when the grass is growing fastly. We are open to hear your ideas for developing ... and to reach a mutual agreement.

Thanks so much for your interest and attention.
