Wanted: volunteers interested in Forest Gardens
- Hi all,
We are looking for volunteer(s) to help us plan, develop and maintain
our 0.3ha forest garden here in Northern Spain. I'm pasting the
announcement below. Please forward it to anyone you think might be
Are you interested in learning more about forest gardens – diverse,
productive ecosystems that mimic natural mixed woodlands?
Do you want to gain experience working in an existing forest garden (now
7 years old) in a temperate maritime climate?
Would you like to learn about all aspects of sustainable, low-impact
living, especially natural building?
Do you want to live in a beautiful, tranquil natural setting and enjoy
good food, good company, a healthy outdoor lifestyle and good weather
We are now looking for volunteers to help plan, develop and maintain our
0.3ha (3/4 acre) forest garden in return for food and accommodation (in
a self-contained guest cabin). Either a single person or a couple
(gender unimportant) would be suitable. Experience and/or qualifications
in forest gardening, organic gardening, permaculture or related fields
are valuable but not essential.
Ideally you would commit to stay for a period of three months (which
could later be extended by mutual consent), with an initial trial period
of two weeks. You should be willing to work both on your own and with
other people. Domestic chores (cooking, washing up, cleaning) are shared
