We, Nathanael, Pritee and Julia (our 17 year old daughter) have started our Permaculture Project 1 year ago on a 15 acres plot of Land. Our land is located inland, 30km from the East cost of Mauritius. The land is actually mainly not cultivated, but we have started a vegetable garden, a food forest and have some bananas and pineapple plantations. We live on site in a 3 rooms house, off grid. We are vegetarians. We need help mainly for our vegetable garden and would like to start a spice garden.

Fatou and Omar Kone Island of Sipo, Siné Saloum Senegal We are a Senegalese family, and live on the island of Sipo, located at the level of Toubacouta (20 km from Sokone) in Siné Saloum. For 22 years we have been cultivating a land of 3 hectares, land that Omar had cleared many years ago. This region is rich in natural resources (fish from delta waters, mangroves and oysters, fruit trees, etc.), which are not used in such a way that villagers can get out of poverty. We think it is possible to do better. For years we have grown mango, cashew nuts, peanuts, vegetables for our own needs, and a little honey. During the dry season (from September to May), we practice vegetable crops: salads, carrots, tomatoes, onions, beets, radishes, cabbages and leeks. The collection of cashew nuts is done from February to May. The winter crops during the rainy season (June to September) are peanuts, beans, bissap (hibiscus), peppers and chilies. We also make honey, and we must regularly renew hives. We would therefore have carpentry work for a person capable of making beehives. We would be happy to develop these cultures and exchange with wwoofers who would be interested in discovering and sharing another life, another culture: that of peasants in the Saloum delta. Those who would like to spend a few weeks with us can contact our friends Céline and Gilles, who hold bed and breakfast (Keur Niaye) in Toubacouta, opposite Sipo. They have a daily internet connection, while ours is weekly.

We are artisanal dairy goat farmers in Southern Africa. Kidding season is from Mid-July to Mid-September and having 200 hungry kids at all stages of the day is quite a task. Full training is provided, as is board and lodging. Anyone interested in cheesemaking or animal husbandry is more than welcome too.

It shall be an environment with a happy atmosphere where people can work together and learn from each other.

Madagascar
Hi ! My name is Christina, I'm 27 and I'm from Madagascar. Until now, I used to work in the development sector in various NGOs abroad and in my country but recently I've decided to create my own social company in my hometown, Nosy be Hell Ville, a small island in the North of Madagascar. Because I'm a climate change activist involved in many associations, a youth inclusion advocate and most of all a youth trainer, I've chosen to start a restaurant with a unique concept in the country, it is the first restaurant and camping in in Madagascar which : - proposes slow food and slow food cooking class with fair, organic and healthy products from our own vegetable garden - gives training and promotes organic farming. - provide the first upcycling center in the city - gives weekly Do it yourslelf /upcycling workshops - has its own library on sustanaible developement - organizes regular cultural and artistic activities for youth of Nosy be (known unfortunately as a sexual tourism destination in Africa, i'd like to change the image of my island and give more activities to youth there to develop themself and to empower them) - gives jobs and training to marginalized youth (we create furnitures and various objetcs from recycleds materials) - gives leadership training for young girls around sustanaible development - has its own Green school located in a remoted area of the island - works with most of the shools of the islands in order to provide environmental education Because I didn't want to depend on grants, I've chosen to be a social entrepreneur with impacts in my community. Fortunately, many believe in my project and have joined me as local volunteers You could join too and discover this wonderful island. We are a young team dedicated to youth and any experiences/capacities would be more than welcome.Many activities are possible, we are not limited and welcome any new ideas and activities :- To help/train marginalzed youth in organic farming - To give class and organise activities in our Green School - To achieve some green challenges with us (ex: create ourself a solar panel with cans, create a wind water pump, etc.) - To organise some Do it yourself/Upcycling workshops ...

Trying to be self-sufficient (very far from it, though) or at least eat everyday from my garden practicing permaculture on our round house and organic garden, 3.5 minutes from the kilometric deserted beaches of West Africa on one side and the jungle on the other. Need a person with experience preferable, but not exclusive, to help from June to September to take the weeds out (not that much experience for that, hum? But we try together to get something growing) and from September to June to help to develop the garden. We built 'compost beds' with lot of success. Depending on the moment we can offer a separate house or a place to put your tent (water proof for the rainy season, but you will be under a straw open round house during those months) in exchange of 3 hours of work 6 days a week (food to be arranged. We may contribute and cook and eat together or we may decide is better each one cooks separately). I speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French and some local Wolof. I was born in Argentina with a USA passport and a Senegaless and Gsmbian residencs cards, I share the house with a gorgeous baby in process of adoption and my Senegalese husbanf

Mbita-Mfangano
Kenya
Remba, a kind of slum island is situated in Lake Victoria under Mfangano Ward, Homabay County in Kenya. It has a population of about six thousand people depending majorly on fishing activities for food and income, by using hundreds of fishing gears (boats) hence too much pressure on the lake. Other than fishing, no any farming method ever practiced in this place, leaving the residents vulnerable to diet associated diseases among other socio economic gaps. It is on this regard that we (John, Osunga and Richard) thought of starting an Organic Farm to provide the community with the missing alternativs on food security. We therefore, open our doors for WWOOFers who at will can share with us Skills, Labour and any other support to help us improve on crop production and make the firm self sustained. We are continuously having greens and sereals plus fruits on seasons. Activities on our farm includes digging, seeding, irrigation, weeding, mulching, harvesting and fencing using gill nets. Volunteers can stay with us for a period of one week to three months or more. We speak English, Kiswahili, Luo and Olusuba languages. Feel free to contact us for any enquiry. WELCOME.

Hi all! We're Madoe Organics, a tropical botanicals company with two organic tree farms in the Eastern Region forests of Oda. We live in town but go out to the farms to plant more trees and harvest. Our work days require measuring acreage, making tree lines, weeding, making nurseries, and harvesting our trees! We work with moringa, papaya, and akuamma (a rare medicinal used as a pain killer). At home we have our product transformation and processing into dried leaves and seeds, powders, capsules, soaps, and oil. We are a team at the house with our Ghanaian manager, Edwin, and his family, our secretary, Jemima, Ralf, the founder, and Adrian, our farms manager. Sometimes work involves going out on sourcing hikes into villages off the beaten path to find wild botanicals with help from local guides who take us on trails through cocoa plantations, streams, and tropical rain forests. We have two extra rooms for volunteers. We mostly have contract workers at the farms who receive three times the Fair Trade wage. Joining work with us can take the form of learning through time spent with the teams on the farm sites, sourcing wild botanicals, and at home with our transformations. We are looking for volunteers interested in tropical tree farming, herbal medicines, and transformation of products. You have flexibility with your interests and you're invited to stay as long as you would like.

Bonjour, Je m'appelle Emilie Diedhiou, je me fais la messagère de mon beau-frère Pape Diedhiou qui développe un projet de maraichage en Casamance. Ce projet s'appelle burok https://www.facebook.com/Ferme-Agroalimentaire-Burok-Silinkine-Région-de-Ziguinchor-SN-402827673099510/ . Nous l'avons initié il y a quelques années avec mon mari et des villageois. Depuis le projet a grandi, mon beau-frère est parti s'en occuper, les femmes du quartier se sont investies, ainsi que les membres (nombreux!) de notre famille. Le terrain investi fait environ 2-3 hectares, on y cultive des légumes (oignons, aubergines, tomates, gombos, choux...), on a commencé à y planter des arbres ou arbustes (bananiers, papayers, citronniers, avocats, mangues...). Un projet d'élevage est en préparation (moutons, canards, poules, pintades). Cette deuxième campagne de production est prometteuse, on le sent déjà dans les assiettes, on le voit sur la parcelle, à la qualité des planches. Les objectifs sont nombreux : rendre plus attractive la vie au village, atteindre l'autosuffisance, augmenter les revenus des villageois... Nous qui sommes en Europe actuellement souhaitons aussi que ce projet s'ouvre et se nourrisse de rencontres. C'est déjà le cas localement, puisque petit à petit différentes personnes ont pu transmettre une technique, un conseil, mais nous souhaitons que les échanges s'élargissent. Nous pouvons vous accueillir dans la maison familiale, vous y serez logé et nourri en échange d'un coup de main au jardin et peut-être du partage de votre expérience en jardinage ou en agriculture. La vie dans le village est très agréable, rustique (pas encore l'électricité, eau au puits) mais fantastique!

Nous tentons d'étendre ces nouvelles pratiques agricole avec les habitants à travers Casabel; notre association belge créer avec 10 autres fondateurs dont le but est de valoriser les ressources local dans une perspective d'autosuffisance alimentaire. Durant 10 mois par an, il y a du travail que se soit au niveau de la pépinière (maraîchage, fruitiers, arbres fertilisant,...), repiquage,plantation, entretien des fruitiers, préparation des butées composts, arrosage,... aménagement du terrain ( pour les animaux, les cultures, points d'eau...).Nous sommes un couple belge d'une trentaine d'année et nous vivons avec un autre couple sénégalais diola.

Le vélo
Plaines Wilhems
Mauritius
Le vélo Vert is an association, based in the island of Mauritius that strives to bring forward the organic culture among the local population. Organic farming in Mauritius is at the infant stage and Le vélo Vert’s vision is to help local farmers convert to organic and to sensitize the general public regarding purchasing organic produce. As Mark Twain nicely said, “Mauritius was made first and then heaven, heaven being copied after Mauritius”. And at Le vélo Vert, we believe that at the heart of this heaven should be a clean pair of lungs breathing the freshest air. Chamouny is where it can be found. Our main organic farm of 4 acres is surrounded by a range of natural landscapes, including plateaus, mountains, valleys, craters and crater-lakes. It is the ideal place for our crops to be developed peacefully without inference from the outside world. Wwoofers are welcome to join us for a unique bio farming experience. The volunteers will be able to share our passion while helping out in agricultural activities. When not working on the farm, the wwoofers can wonder to Chazal Ecotourism which offers activities such as zip lining, river trekking or hiking in the natural reserve. Along with the main site at Chamouny, we have a total of 15 acres of organic land throughout the island giving the opportunity for wwoofers to discover different idyllic places envied by many. Le vélo Vert has all the amenities to accommodate the wwoofers during their stay (minimum 3 months) with us. So, if you are looking for an invigorating organic human experience and a true encounter with the heart of Mauritius, come join us at Le Vélo Vert today!

Hi, my name is Mohamed. I'm 27 years old. Together with some family members, I have a watermelon farm. We also grow dates and have some camels for tourism use.The type of help depends on the season. December to June would be watermelon irrigation, seeding, harvesting, transport, other months are more animal care and other maintenance work...??? This Farm and garden is situated in the southern part of Morocco near the Sahara desert. this beautiful property for the past 5 years. The work here involves mainly of caring for the palm trees so they can produce the date fruits. After the harvested fruit season, dates are picked from the trees to be eaten and also sold locally. Occasionally there are also some animals on the farm like sheep, goats donkeys and camels. These animals graze in our own area. A short visit to the nearby desert is possible at times enabling us to revive our energy by resting in tranquility And even a ride on the camel in the early morning can also do the trick! Back at the farm the facilities include toilets,Internet, kitchen and bedrooms. Please feel free to contact us with any queries and any more info you might need..we're here to help you and gladly host you

We also raise chickens, ducks and geese for eggs/meat/sale. Recent projects include an aquaculture based small scale bream/tilapia fish tanks and growing an extensive an extensive range of medicinal and edible herbs. Volunteers would be required to work on all aspects of the farm's activities! Volunteers under 22 years generally too inexperienced. Minimum stay 2 weeks. Prefer longer term - UP TO 3 months.

A apart from our organic farm we are trying to train young farmers in our community to be self reliant in our food supply. We have also started a program with the community young farmers and we give starter kits (assorted seeds and drip line) to motivate them after the training. There is a great need to train young farmers here and that is why we are calling upon volunteers who may be willing to come and volunteer with us over here. We also call upon volunteers with the passion for children. We are looking forward to start an ECD school ( Center) with feeding program after my girl friends graduation to help the orphans and less privileged children who are not able to go to school due to lack of school fees so that they be able to learn and feed.

I have been travelling in Amercia and in the UK where I discovered about organic farming and permaculture. So, I realized that Malawi was missing something important. This is why I decided to come back and start together with my friend Andrew, an organic farm. We started this project June 2015. So there is a lot of work, and all kind of help is most welcome! My goal is not to grow only my own vegetables, but also to share with the community the techniques and knowledge of organic farming and permaculture, so they can have more variety of food. Our farm is 2km from the center of Monkey Bay, near beautiful lake Malawi. It is 1 hectare big, we have already planted some vegetables and maize. we plan on planting a fruit orchard and more vegetables. We have a water well on the property which is very convenient. The accomodation is in the village, we have built a room with 2 beds for the volunteers, and plan to build more, camping is also possible. The house is 4 minutes walk only from the lake. You will discover the real village life of Malawi and the great sense of welcoming from the people. During your free time you can enjoy the clear water of the lake to swim, snorkel,or go fishing, take a trip to Cape McLear to enjoy beautiful sunsets, go hiking on the hills around the lake, watch bird,hippos, crocodiles... As everyone as his own point of view and ideas, everybody is welcome to share them with us!!!

The garden entirely uses organic gardening practices and methods to improve its productivity. The farm hosts a variety of crops such as cassavas, sweet potatoes, bananas, pumpkins, maize, beans, avocados,paw paw, tomatoes, kale's, herbal,aloe vera, lemon grass, yams and cashew nuts.We also rear animals such as goats, cows, and chickens. The activities carried out in the farm include mulching,weeding,seeding,transplanting,planting,irrigation,pruning ,making compost manure among others. Outdoor activities include reaching out to the vulnerable in the community through social groups, traditional dancing and singing. Volunteers will also learn,enjoy and experience new cultures by visiting cultural and historic sites such as The Abasuba Community Peace Museum,traditional rock art,ancient caves,swimming,hiking,bird watching,and boat expeditions around the island during their stay. From the onset, the project has been financially and socially supporting vulnerable orphans to access quality education, and widows living with HIV / AIDS in the Abasuba community. This has been partially achieved through the income generated by selling farm produce so as to improve the livelihood of the targeted group. It is on this regard that the farm urgently seeks organic gardening experience exchange to provide expertise and manpower from volunteers to realize its dream of social - economic empowerment of the vulnerable in the community. We also provide hospitable food and accommodation services in a serene environment to volunteers during farm stay.Volunteers are free to determine the preferred length of stay in the farm depending on their schedule. Kindly feel free to contact us for a memorable organic gardening exchange experience and change lives.

Ogege Organic Farm was started in the Year 2011. It is located in Wakinga Village, Mfangano Island which has a local HIV/AIDS prevalence estimated over 30% and high unemployment levels among the youths. The farm is approximately 1.5 Hectares. It accommodates all varieties of crops such as vegetables, beans, cassava, potatoes, yams, water melons, pawpaw, and pumpkins among others due to its high productivity. The main objective of the farm is to raise the living standards of the youths as well as physically challenged persons in the rural community through provision of financial and social support. This has been achieved partially by giving financial assistance to orphans who are unable to proceed with their studies from the little income the project generates after selling the produce. It is only through access to quality education that the farm can eradicate the alarming poverty levels in the rural community that is concentrated with the HIV/AIDS epidemic killing thousands and leaving helpless children in the remote community. However, the project is currently experiencing challenges such as technical expertise and manpower so as to run smoothly and achieve its mission. It is on this view that the farm seeks willing volunteers who can help upgrade the living standards of the vulnerable orphans in the rural community. The farm also provides free food and accommodation services to our volunteers during farm stay.

Nabulu means growth in Maasai language and is the name of this Maasai family owned ecological farm and Bed and Breakfast. Nabulu is also the homesite for the nonprofit organization called Naramat, a community based organization dedicated to improving the lives of the Maasai living in that community. Naramat has been active on issues like female genital mutilation in the Maasai community as well as ecological farming for prosperity and food security in the Maasai community. Nabulu farm and Bed and Breakfast is a 7 acre property with dairy cows and two vegetable gardens. Milk, kale, sugarcane, bananas as well as other local greens are grown on the farm. There are two large rainwater harvesting tanks that provide the majority of water for drinking and household needs. Wwoofers stay in a shared bedroom with one of the daughters in a western style home. There is a bed. There are pit toilets and a shower. The family is modern maasai and more than happy to share stories and knowledge of their culture as well as expose you to the local Maasai community through the local church and their friends. Interns wake up with the family at 6:30 and can learn to make Kenyan chai and to cook on a wood fired stove or manoever a donkey to fetch water as well as sweeping and other household tasks like getting firewood and landscape maintenance. Help with meal preparation and clean up is expected. After lunch, interns can take a shower and have a rest until 5:30 when they can help with dinner prep. Once a week the natural mud structures need to be smeared with mud and is a great task for interns to learn about the local natural building techniques. There is a mother and father, daughter, grandchild and dairy cow worker on the property most of the time. Sometimes the other children come home and make a fun experience on the farm. Developping their land ecologically and sustainably has made this farm a beautiful example of locally grown ecotourism. The farm is located on the edge of Maasailand in the rural village of Meguara. Wwoofers enjoy the serene and beautiful setting that guests enjoy as well as typical Kenyan and Maasai meals prepared on a traditional wood fired stove. The majority of meat, fish, milk, greens and avocadoes are grown on the property. With its very own fish ponds, dairy cows, and vegetable gardens, Nabulu is becoming one of Maasailand’s most ecologically developed indigenous farms.

Agatha Amani House is a grass roots initiative and women's shelter in Kenya, East Africa for victims of sexual and domestic violence and is the first of its kind in the country. Many defenseless women are beaten or sexually abused, separated from their children and literally kicked out on the streets. It has only been in very recent years that gender desks have been established at police stations around the country. But even with that first step towards helping these women and their children, the reality is that it will take years for women and girls to realize their rights and safety under the law. Therefore we are committed to providing help for our sisters in Kenya who desperately need our help. And we are asking you to join with us in this critical initiative. Services include but are not limited to safe shelter, counseling, advocacy, education and transitional assistance through placement, vocational guidance and training. The shelter is located in the beautiful scenic Rift Valley near lake Naivasha (the only fresh water lake in the Rift Valley) and not too far from the Maasai's. Community visits will be great experiences! We are looking for short term and long term volunteers with both basic or advanced skills. Skills such as project coordination and management, farming skills(both animal and plants), handyman-ship, cooking/culinary skills,Nutrition, House keeping, health and hygiene, education including teaching English, marketing,computers, social media, blogging, social work, counseling, community outreach and mobilization, advocacy, fundraising and having fun. We are a new shelter that is now open, operating, has residents and a working farm. The farm uses Biogas, solar power, rainwater collection,drip irrigation, cows, goats,chicken, rabbits, verticle gardening and compositing. We need help with the transition to and implementation of permaculture and organic farming which we have somewhat started. We even have plans for hydroponics and aquaculture. All this programs and activities will assist the residents and the house towards becoming self-sustaining. This is a great opportunity for a person to learn and make a difference while receiving a great cultural experience.Plus a safari can be an added treat for those that can afford it. Come help us serve and grow. We are now ready to establish our farm as an organic and hydroponic farm. We are also looking for a single person or couple seeking a long term stay in Kenya where you can contribute your passion for growing food through a community-based nonprofit. Someone with some knowledge of organic farming, hydroponics or permaculture design principles. FB https://web.facebook.com/AgathaAmaniHouseInitiatives?fref=ts

Victoria.I love the tropical climate of the Island since it is very favorable to agriculture.I am also very concerned with the environment conservation both water,land and air, since life is greatly attached to environment status.So who ever feels would have an idea to improve our environment kindly give yourself for what it takes and nothing can defeat our effort.I highly welcome WWOOFers to come so that we can share organic experience as you also enjoy the tropical Climate, unique geographical scenery and cross cultural values of our people.Your experience and idea is very vital to my WWOOF project. Welcome to Mfangano Island full of love and peace.Am an Individual living with my mum and three other siblings in our home.It is blessing for us to host WWOOF Volunteers.I speak English,Swahili,Luo and Suba.I will provide WWOOFers with good accommodation and I would love to at least have WWOOFers for 3 and more days.Diet will constitute mostly organic products.Feel most welcome to secure Island.I established this farm to help support innocent Orphans whose parents were swept by devastating HIV/AIDS, who have remained living a very discouraging and vulnerable life since they lack basic human needs like education, food,health care and clothing.On the same there are also several widows both aged and many of whom are affected and infected by the pandemic sieges,they are very poor and as a result I have extended my hand to bless them with the products but now the number is too large than resources.I therefore need to expand the project if I can get water pump ,pipes and a water storage tank.For any well sympathetic individual your support towards empowering these vulnerable persons will be highly appreciated and is a reward to you.Your WWOOFing support is highly appreciated by us.I have enjoyed and loved hosting dear volunteers so much since I have learnt a lot.Welcome.

I'm a Belgian woman, I moved to Senegal and with help of some local friends I've started an organic farm near 'Lac Rose' and Bonaba Village (Bonaba Cafe = Gite du Lac). Nearest city is Dakar (30 km). I've planted lots of banana trees and papayas. There are two vegetable gardens with carrots, cucumbers, etc. Organic farming is very new in Senegal, but there are a lot of opportunities. This region is very beautiful. Life is very simple but healthy. The place is quiet and isolated. I can host one or two wwoofers. Help is needed for pumping the water, watering the plants, taking care of the vegetable garden. You don't need specific skills to join, but a good dose of enthusiasm and courage. And you have to love being in the middle of nowhere in the nature. Please contact me by phone (i speak french), internet is not always available (3km from the farm), so please be patient if you send me an email. Je suis une femme Belge. J'ai déménagé à Sénégal et avec l'aides des amis locaux, j'ai crée une ferme en bio près du Lac Rose et Bonaba Village. Dakar est a 30 km. J'ai planté des bananiers et des papayes. Il y a deux potagers avec carottes, concombres, etc. L'agriculture bio est encore très nouveau à Sénégal mais il y ont beaucoup des opportunités. Ce région est très belle. La vie est simple mais sain. La ferme est isolé. Je peux recevoir 1 ou 2 wwoofers. J'ai besoin l'aide pour arroser les plantes et pour soigner les potagers. Tu n'as pas besoin des qualités spéciales, mais une bonne dose d'enthousiasme et de courage. Et tu dois aimer vivre en pleine nature. Appelle-moi svp. Internet n'est pas toujours possible (3km de la ferme).

Borana-Kabati is a 100 acre Organic farm that is part of the 32,000 acre family owned and operated Borana Conservancy. The farm is nestled between Borana to the west and Lewa Wildlife Conservancy to the east on the side of the Ngare Ndare River just North of the Equator. We are in the process of transitioning the land from a heavily cultivated herb farm into a more bio-diverse and ecologically balanced permaculture system. The target is to produce enough fruit and vegetables to feed the 300+ people employed by the ranch, lodges and the conservancy. Produce enough fodder to be able to finish our grass fed beef and see them through the long dry seasons. We are also in the process of designing and preparing to build a small eco-trainimg and permaculture school. At the moment we are looking for anyone with experience in natural building methods and establishment of dry land permacuture systems.

In the farm community learn organic farming which our aim is to produce food while establishing an ecological balance to prevent soil fertility or pest problem. We also recognize the direct connection between our health and how the food we eat is produced. community also learn kitchen gardening as source of food security. What we grow in the farm are grafting mangoes, grafting orange,tc banana,cassava,paw paws,kales,tomatoes,beans. we uses vermiculture(worm farming),compost manure as our source of nutrients. We banned the use pesticide and insecticide because mode of action of these chemical are not specific to one species, they often kill or harm organisms other than pest.we advocate use of homemade organism pesticides eg neem product,pepper spray. we also have ecd school called SP Geddes ran by the same group. way forward: we are looking for development partners who are doing similar project to partner with as to alleviate this community from poverty,those who can provide training, financial support ang farm equipment.

We are WWOOFers ourselves who finally have the opportunity to host at our farm. Our time spent WWOOfing here in Zambia as well as a year in Latin America were many of the experiences which have shaped our world view and consciousness. We have recently started work on our home and small farm in Northern Zambia. We run a small non-profit helping to empower young women - including computer classes and organic farming (www.bakashana.org). We also have a small organic farm, right on Lukupa river. There we are helping the community remember organic farming, and remembering through interaction with nature. We farm an organic garden, some crops and mostly fruit trees. We invite people who are interested in helping us and are also interesting in interacting with the neighbors in the rural Zambian village which hosts us. Culture and sustainability are our priorities and we would love to learn from and share with you! Currently, we ask that WWOOFers be willing to stay for at least two weeks, and have an open mind about possibly contributing towards the costs of food.

My Guinean friend Laro and I have started a fruit plantation in BOFFA on his familys land of 8 hectar! It is where his father, who died 13 years ago, used to grow food for the family of 11 children (9 alive). Noone has touched the land, apart from the people burning down the bush to steal the charbon, since his father worked here with his sons and daughters. The soil is rich and dark! Started in may 2014, we are giving our all to recreate this land into paradise, which was meant to be on earth! Our intention is to nourish the land and plant a multitude of tropical fruit trees and plants. So far we got a hold on Coconut palms, jackfruit, mango, guava, carambol and cashew. We have planted 4 dfferent kinds of bananas, a lot of maniok, some sweet potato and papaya is on the way! When august comes, the rainiest month in the region, orange trees will be planted too! A traditional BAGE has been set in place. Our shelter when the sun is hot, when it is pouring down and during night time! We are spending almost all our time on the land working, dancing or listening to the frogs and toads birds and crickets surrouding us. We have also built a water storage tank round in shape. It will collect rain water during the rainy months and will make it possible to water the trees during the dry season; it can store 30000 liters of water! Turtles will be kept too clean the water LETS RECREATE PARADISE!!! Welcome to help us here in Guinea!

My husband and I own a 3 hectare self-sufficient organic farm on the Petite Cote of Senegal, West Africa. We grow traditional fruit trees, cultivate and harvest traditional and western vegetables and have chickens, sheep, rabbits, homing pigeons, horses and donkeys on the farm. I am American and my husband is Senegalese. We are looking for one or two volunteers to help manage the harvesting of the vegetables to sell in the local market and to the ex-pat community. As well, assist with watering and maintenance of the fruit trees and care of the animals. Some knowledge of French is helpful but not essential. Lodging is provided as well as a bicycle for transport. The farm is a 5 minute walk to the beach and 30 minutes by bicycle to a mid-size city. Thus far we have had a wonderful experience with Wwoofer from the US, Canada, France and Israel. We are expanding to be able to have more Wwoofers join us in the future.

We are a federation of youth associations of 13 villages of farmers. We grow traditional crops with our families during raining season (July to Septembre) like groundnuts, millet, rice, mais, beans and watermelons. During the dry season, mostly the women grow vegetables as onions, tomatoes, eggplants, bitter eggplants, ladyfinders, cabbage and salades. Very few people speak enlish, so you need to communicate in french (or if you want in the local languages). You can stay in one of our families and join in the work on the fields but also for the house and the few goats, sheeps, cattle or donkeys that some of the families have.

Currently we are growing 2 acres of organic crops, have 100 free-range chickens and 10 cows. I am writing on behalf of Precious Life Foundation, a community project that helps vulnerable women become self sufficient through mentorship and learning a trade. This includes agricultural farming which we do on an organic and permaculture basis. We have a biogas digester, a lodge that can sleep 12 volunteers and 2 new classrooms for the women of Precious Life. The goal that we are working towards is the acceptance and integration of permaculture and organic farming by the surrounding community in order to safeguard the environment and provide food security. Our growing initiatives also include door gardens,bio-intensive beds, organic composting and sack potatoes (a method that reduces inputs,saves plenty of water and provides larger outputs than conventional farming). We plan to extend to also include traditional herbs of the area. As this farm is a haven for young women that have often been abused, I personally believe that we can only accept female volunteers at the present moment. We work on a voluntary payment method of USD $0-$10 a day, pay as you see fit. Thank you

We mainly have our own family Permaculture farm and homestead project on a 27 acres property we just recently took ownership of. A farm site we have named "La Meule" meaning " The Grindstone" in french. A name we have chosen from the past history of the property related to the local villagers working since decades, in the sugarcane fields of the area. The Farm being completely off-grid will sustain ourselves with its vegetable gardens, main crop fields, food forests, animal husbandries, water harvesting systems, energy systems, and other appropriate technologies. The farm acts as a permaculture research center, in collaboration or partnership with compatible local businesses, wildlife foundations, and potentially, governmental units, working towards the same goals. We implement on site our positive results, sustaining us and feeding ourselves from our produce, selling all surplus to visitors, and the local markets. In line with its daily sustainable living activities, the farm will be an integrated ecological demonstration platform offering site visites, and short to longer term accommodations, open to local citizens, local and international WWOOFERS (Willing workers on organic farms), and other foreigners or tourists willing to discover any ecological systems they might be interested in, and see it there, in action, on the site. From there, the farm has an educational program in which we will, sooner or later, offer courses and workshops to anyone interested in developing those systems for themselves, or elsewhere. We have numerous projects on the stove, including setting up a PRI Mauritius at La Meule Permaculture Farm with the help of local NGO's, Permaculture friends around the world, like minded local people, and the support of PRI Australia.

This Farm and garden is situated in the southern part of Morocco near the Sahara desert. Together with my wife and son we've been managing this beautiful property for the past 5 years. The work here involves mainly of caring for the palm trees so they can produce the date fruits. After the harvested fruit season, dates are picked from the trees to be eaten and also sold locally. Occasionally there are also some animals on the farm like sheep, goats donkeys and camels. These animals graze in our own area. A short visit to the nearby desert is possible at times enabling us to revive our energy by resting in tranquility And even a ride on the camel in the early morning can also do the trick! Back at the farm the facilities include toilets,Internet, kitchen and bedrooms. Please feel free to contact us with any queries and any more info you might need..we're here to help you and gladly host you..

Welcome to our family of likeminded! We run 15.5 acre re-claimed desert land where we grow mostly Moringa (Stenopetala & Oleifera) but we also have neem, olives, date palm and few other fruit trees. We keep fish, goats, sheep and chicken. Our farm is located approx 1 hour drive from Giza, Greater Cairo, Egypt. The accommodation is extremely basic. We used solar power until lately, but are connected to the grid now. There is also running water, but limited. Local food is made by the resident workers, it is vegetarian and occasionally there is meat or chicken. Volunteers must be able to cook for their own, if they find the local food not up to their taste. There is a fridge but no hot water. We dry and crush the moringa at the farm. The grinding process for leaf powder is still located in town. We use drip irrigation, which needs intensive verification. Our fertilizer is self made compost and we use organic pesticides. Our next steps are to improve and optimize our processes and establish a curriculum for a training of farmers to pass on the knowledge. Please join us if you already are experienced in organic farming so we can exchange experiences. Work is hard, but we enjoy our results and would like to share. Thank you.

Bonjour, Hi! (version française en bas de page) We are a small french family (one female adult + 2 children born in 2002 and 2009) living in a 1500 sq meter ground in the countryside of Bango (8 kms far from Saint Louis du Senegal - upnorth of the country). We are raising ducks, we have a kitty and we finally gave up other animal's raising: it costs lot of money and we are too empathic to kill them and sell their meat... We want to raise vegetables, and wish to become self-sufficient. Also, I (45 years old mother) am the chairwoman of a small non profit organization which aims to help local people to improve their conditions of life. The website of the orgnization is: http://www.association-alchimie.org (in french only for the moment) and its facebook french page is: https://www.facebook.com/AssociationAlchimieSolidariteNordSud?fref=ts The organization has a lot of different PROJECTS related with children and women, health and education, sustainable development, respect of environment, etc. Caution! NOTHING IS YET LAUNCHED! Due to financial reasons and lack of serious long-term volunteers, none of the projects is yet realized. We would like to open a small snack, a small social center, launch lucrative activities to feed a solidarity fund to help poor families to pay their health fees (weakpoint in Senegal). We intend to launch an outdoor cinema, a recycling business, and many other activities, then, we need long-term volunteers that could share our place to help launching the projects. Our previous experience of woofing was very bad. From now on, we ask for a financial participation of 3€ per day and per person including all fees (food, water, electricity). Please contact us by e-mail as a first step to let us know what you expect, and/or to ask all the questions you wish. Children, musicians, feminists and vegetarians are very welcome. Thanks!----------------------------------------French version: Nous sommes une petite famille française (une adulte et deux enfants nés en 2002 et 2009), et nous vivons sur un terrain de 1500m2 dans la zone rurale de Bango (quartier Sinthiane) à 8 kms de Saint Louis du Sénégal, Nord du pays. Nous élevons des canards et avons un chat. Finalement, nous avons renoncé à élever d'autres animaux : cela coûte cher et nous n'avons pas le cœur de les abattre pour vendre leur viande...Nous voudrions faire pousser des légumes, et espérons devenir auto-suffisants. Par ailleurs, je (mère de 45 ans) suis la fondatrice/présidente d'une petite associations qui souhaiterait aider à l'amélioration des conditions de vie locales. Le site web de l'association est : http://www.association-alchimie.org, et sa page FB française est : https://www.facebook.com/AssociationAlchimieSolidariteNordSud?fref=ts L'association a des tas de PROJETS en rapport avec les enfants et les mères, la santé, l'éducation, le développement durable, le respect de l'environnement, etc. Attention ! RIEN N'EST ENCORE LANCé ! Pour des raisons financières et du fait du manque de volontaires sérieux prêts à s'investir sur le long terme, aucun des projets n'est réalisé pour le moment. Nous aimerions ouvrir un petit snack, un petit centre social, lancer des activités lucratives pour alimenter un fond destiné à aider les familles pauvres à payer leurs dépenses de santé (point noir au Sénégal). Nous espérons lancer un cinéma en plein air, un business de recyclage, et d'autres activités, c'est pourquoi nous avons besoin de volontaires sur le long terme, qui pourraient vivre avec nous (y a de la place!) pour nous aider à lancer les projets. Notre unique et précédente expérience de woofing a été désastreuse. Désormais, nous demandons une participation financière de 3€ par jour et par personne incluant tous les frais (nourriture, eau et électricité). Merci de nous contacter par e-mail dans un premier temps, pour nous dire ce que vous attendez, et/ou pour nous poser toutes les questions que vous voudrez. Enfants, musiciens, féministes et végétariens sont très bienvenu-e-s. Merci !

ABOUT US: I am a 48-year old Scot and my wife, 39, is from Argentina. I am a jack-of-all-trades and have been many things in life, from soldier to TV presenter. I met my love in Ibiza where she had settled temporarily. We were both big travelers before meeting one another and still are, although there's less time for such things now we have two very young children, Gaia and Isaac. THE PROJECT: For some years now we've been building a house in the project area, just 15kms north of Essaouira on the Atlantic Coast. Originally it was being built as a tourist business. Now it is reborn as an eco-lodge and permaculture centre. It lies between Azrou Issa and Al Fayda, two small fishing and farming communities. Life is hard here and with less and less rain, and fewer fish in the ocean, it's getting harder. Many families have already left the land and gone to live in the town. There are almost 30 small families left, farming approx 100 hectares between them and grazing their goats, sheep and cows in the huge forest behind. The land does not produce enough and the forest is being overgrazed. The eco-lodge will not be finished for several more years but now sits at the heart of a project we have started with the locals It's a long term mission to regenerate the farmland and the forest behind using permaculture, holistically managed grazing, aqua-ponics and any other good ideas. The aim is to build a sustainable and profitable future for them, and us, and in so doing, to learn what works and what doesn't work in such an arid landscape before taking this knowledge to other places. To this end I have also started a UK based charity, the Fertile Roots Foundation, which will support, fund (where necessary) and guide this project, and others after it, towards economic and social sustainability. WHAT’S HAPPENING WHEN: RIGHT NOW (DECEMBER 2015 - APRIL 2016) WE ARE ONLY LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS WITH SPECIFIC EXPERIENCE IN EITHER LIME PLASTERING, PLUMBING OR FILM EDITING. Please note that we do not take anyone under the age of 30 unless they have real experience or a specific skill that we have need of. THE WORK: Volunteers may find themselves working with Ayelen or me, alone with other volunteers, on their own, with the locals who speak nothing but Arabic or it may be everybody together in a big permablitz. ACCOMMODATION: Volunteers will be accommodated either in a 4m bell tent in the unfinished eco-lodge, in a bedroom or in the original farmhouse. Cooking and eating and relaxing will be in the house. It’s all very basic at the moment. Water is scarce so we wash in a bucket and the toilet is dry compost. The well water is good to drink. We are not vegetarian but different diets are not a problem. Volunteers will be expected to cook for themselves and help out with other housework. We provide food, a mattress and a pillow. We do not provide sheets, blankets, towels or ANY work clothes (gloves, etc). It can be quite cold if the wind is from the east so bring warm clothes, strong shoes and a 2-3 season sleeping bag. THE AREA: The beach is 800m away. Moulay Bouzergtoun, a small village and one of the best windsurfing spots in the world, is 4km away. Essaouira, the nearest town is 15kms along the beach (3 hrs walk) or an easy 15-minute walk up the hill and 30 min hitch hike along the coast road. It has a beautiful old medina and fishing port. It’s all quite touristy now but there is lots to do and see, music festivals, kite surfing, surfing and windsurfing, horse riding, etc . We buy our food at the fantastic weekend farmers’ market at Had’draa. Marrakech is 200kms away.

Hi, I have a 40 hectares (around 100 acres) organic olive orchards located 1 hour away from Marrakech. I have planted around 10.000 olive trees as well as a few hundreds other varietals (citrus, apricots, plums, peaches) and endemic species as well. Most of the trees are 4 years old and I planning on having my first crop this year. There a 3 cows and a few hens. I have already hosted wwoofers on the ranch and have been a volunteers myself. I have a house with 3 rooms, a kitchen, bathroom, living room where people can sleep, rest and enjoy the sunset. In the summer, it gets very hot and dry but the winters are cold (typical semi-arid continental climate). I would like to host people who are willing to work, share, easy going and pretty adaptable. It is a remote and quiet area, the closet town is Kelaa Sraghna where you have a grocery store but that's pretty much it as far as entertainment. But it is genuine and the people living on the ranch are nice. I would need help for the 2013 harvest and other work (pruning the suckers, weeding, mulching, composting etc...). If you are interested, please send me an email with your motivations. Thanks in advance.

We have a beautiful big garden in the famous Draa valley where we grow many things including fruit and vegetables and we have palm trees too. It is situated in a small village called Dizerghat. The land is typically very dry, practically desert! If you come here to work in the garden you will learn about how to grow things in very arid land. You can meet many people from around the world, mainly Europeans and people from Morocco but also other nationalities. There is a small house where there could be potentially up to ten people, it will depend on the time of year; there is a lot to do in summer. Planting; irrigation; picking; weeding etc. If interested you could help look after camels a bit and other things! We are just joining WOOFING for the first time so well see how it goes! You just have to call me and we speak about the opportunities! you are very welcome!

I am a farmer doing Dynamic Bio-organic farming on row crops, macadamia nuts, cattle, Jatropha and cassava. I multiply soil micro-organisms for use together with organic material incorporated in the soil to form Humus and make some compost for crops that do not grow on Humus. Where manure is available, that too gets incorporated 600mm to prevent weeds taking over.

South Sinai
Egypt
Habiba Organic Farm is bringing new ideas and innovative collaboration to Egypt’s Sinai communities by combining positive forces in agriculture, education, and tourism. Already in Nuweiba, South Sinai, Habiba has introduced pioneering sustainable farming techniques and organized cooperatives of farmers in the area looking for new opportunities. All the while, Habiba has cultivated cross-cultural interactions that have helped redefine South Sinai as a hub for Agri-tourism. The challenge today is scaling those successes to the wider Sinai community. Founded in 2007 by Maged El Said, Habiba Organic Farm was from the start a social experiment. The first of its kind farm – affiliated with the nearby Habiba Beach lodge - was to serve multiple goals: act as a hub for tourists and volunteers from around the world looking to get hands-on experience in the sustainable food movement, serve as a showcase for the amazing potential of organic farming even in tough desert conditions, and to function as a community hub to bring the coastal Egyptian tourist communities closer to the local Bedouin citizens of Nuweiba. The Habiba experiment has been a resounding success. Highlights of the project include:  Bringing hundreds of volunteers from all over the world to work in the farm and participate in expanding sustainable agriculture in the Nuweiba community. Habiba has served as an important portal for cultural interactions between Westerners and Bedouins in a community where tourism has built walls of separation instead of opportunities for collaboration.  Expanding agricultural opportunities for dozens of local families. Habiba’s intention has always been to spread the potential for sustainable agriculture to a community seeking new economic possibilities, Agribusiness Though farming had never been a staple of modern Nuweiba history, the success of Habiba has inspired many families in Nuweiba and beyond, throughout all parts of South Sinai, to start farms and bring a sustainable income in times of need. Habiba has served as a learning center for people interested in learning all aspects of sustainable agriculture and to share labor, seeds, and other resources.  The foundation of the Sinai Palm Date Foundation. Maged El Said has a vision to plant thousands of productive Medjool date palm trees across Nuweiba and the rest of Sinai. Currently, the trial has been successful with delicious dates being grown and sold in local farmers markets in the region – proving to people that date farming can become a valuable resource to the community.  A hub for scientific research. Habiba has forged partnerships with NGOs, universities, and scientific organizations in Sinai and across Egypt with the goal of promoting better collaboration in desert farming. A successful partnership with Egypt’s Desert Research Center has brought important tools to the local community such as free seed distribution efforts, technical workshops on details of sustainable farming available to all members of the Sinai community, as well as active university involvement in managing new experiments to continue the growth of better agricultural techniques in the Sinai

--- IMPORTANT NOTICE: We are currently NOT HOSTING volunteers!!! We are still open for exchange and hope to be able to host again soon.--- Description: We are a « Baye Fall » Sufi-Community, located in a village in the Sahel region, 120km east of Dakar. We cultivate organic vegetables during the dry season on about one and a half hectares, using drip irrigation, composting, mulching, intercropping, plant-based organic insecticide treatments and more. We are aspiring to a permacultural concept of a multi-functional Sahel-oasis, including fruit trees, medicinal plants, plants for natural dyes and oil plants for the production of soaps, etc. We consider our garden mainly as an experimentation, practical research and educational project, with the long-term goal of self-sufficiency and an additional source of income for the community. Livestock is also held in the community, such as cows, goats, sheep, horses, donkeys, poultry, camels and peacocks. The organic cotton grown in the village is transformed in the local crafts-workshops into cushions and scarves.

At this time it is not very busy because we have not enough things to do because of no rain there. We only have local garden beds which we operate like cabages, onions & other vegetables. We use local wells 3m deep because the water table is not too deep in our country. We need to have irrigations systems & wells. Contact me via email.

There are also coconut trees, avocado, banana, grapefruit, palm, calabash, and then several gardens with vegetables & ginger root. There are many children - Africa's children, not my own. So there is plenty of good work for all the brave souls and then when work done, if African drumming or dancing is of interest, we will have classes daily for 5 bucks!. We have a monkey named Bob!
