Some years ago we started growing vegetables behind the house for the kitchen using the keyhole gardening method. Vegetable gardening is not so new though in our family as we're a 3rd generation of a subsistence farming family. Each year, we add new crops, vegetables, a few herbs and fruits to our garden. We're located in the biggest island of Samoa, Beautiful Savaii.
Help out with our farm for at least 5 hrs a day and we provide accomodation and meals for free, or a working day for a day off. Close to beaches, fresh water pool and water falls. We locate in a village setting where you can get the best island experience you could wish for. Mingle with the people, observe and practice the village life, cook and eat traditional food and so much more.

Duration of Stay: Minimum of 1 week and maximum of 3/4 weeks
Recommended Working Days: Mon - Sat, (Strictly no Work on Sunday)
Accomodation Type: A western style room in the family home or a one bedroom unit to self depend on availability.
Age/Gender: 20 - 50 years old, Male & Female or couple.

Also note that, because we live and work in the village you are required to observe village rules and curfews - ie. dress code for men and women, evening prayer time etc.

Sorry but we will not be responsible or take in helpers with ill health, injured (from previous helpex stay) or seriously inefficient for work or small side jobs.
