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.

My name is Lansana and I live with my family in Tenghori where we have a family vegetable garden. We speak French. We have 3,5 hectares but we only use 1 hectare so far cause we dont have enough hands to work. We cultivate vegetables and we are now planting fruit trees such as papaya, banane, different class of oranges etc. We use drip irrigation system. In the future we would like to start cow breeding farm. If youd like to come and help us in the garden we will be very happy to receive you! Welcome!

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!

Living in the US, I bought a 4ha piece of land and currently experiencing organic and natural farming. Like many local farmers, my activity is mainly seasonal. I grow, millet, corn and vegetable basing on the pluviometry. I just began fruits ( mango, lemon and cashew). I travel to Senegal every summer (usually in june and july). I am interested in taking groups or host experienced people to help me develop the farm.

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).

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.

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 !

Prendant l'hivernage (de juin a octobre) 97 femmes y pratiquent la culture du riz hivernale ameliores. La promotion de l'approche biologique est la voie nous comptons organiser la production dans toute la vallee de Dassilame. Nous avons egalement un programe d'elevage de chevres. Maintenant 102 chevres sont inscrites dans ce programme pour la production de viande et de lait. Le village promeut également le reboisement des mangroves et d'autres arbres. In our village there are two gardening projects. One is 10 hectares, which I work at, and another is a 2.5 hectare women garden, where my wife works. Both projects grow onions, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, and local vegetables. There is also a rice project in the area, where I lead informational sessions on rice cultivation. Other projects underway in the village include, reforestation of mangroves and raising goats for milk/meat production. Depending on the time of the year, we need help with various tasks, which range from watering, transplanting, weeding, and preparing garden beds. I am also a beekeeper; I have many hives on my land and in the surrounding mangroves. A volunteer should be able speak a little French. Please try to send all correspondences in French.

--- 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.
