The farm is located in Los Palmitos, Sucre on the Atlantic coast of Colombia. It's about 17 acres and walking distance from the center of the town, where we live.
We are currently working hard to make the farm sustainable, organic and reforesting the land with all sorts of trees. We grow mainly yuca, ñame, papaya, platano, aji, eggplant and several other seasonal fruits and vegetables.
The land here is hot and dry with patches of rainy weather 2 - 3 times a year.
We have chickens, guinea fowl, turkeys, ducks, tortoises, dogs, cats, birds.
Anyone coming to help us out should love animals and not be afraid of the occasional poisonous toad, snake or spider.
We are looking for volunteers to help with all levels of farming, gardening, landscaping, animal care and construction. We need people with experience and ideas to help convert our small farm into a green wonderland that will serve as a model for neighboring farms to make the switch to sustainable and organic farming.
This sort of volunteer work is ideal for agriculture or veterinary students who want hands-on experience. The people here are very welcoming to foreigners and we have had many lately as there was a significant archaeological find not far from our farm. The nearest city is Sincelejo it's about 30 minutes away and the beaches of Tolu and Coveñas are about 1 hour away.
We offer room and board on the farm for up to a month in exchange for a minimum of 25-30 hours of work a week. There are no luxuries here but you will have everything that you need. We speak English and can help you improve your Spanish.
