The Trinity Yard School is looking for a WWOOFER who desires to learn, help and work on its small on-site farm to produce food for the students and staff. Some experience a plus but absolutely not required as the volunteer will assist the Agricultural Director and together they will educate and re-skill the staff and students in environmentally sustainable farming methods, renewable energy gathering, and waste recycling in order to decrease the exploitation and degradation of natural resources. We practice permaculture on campus and through out the community, we integrate proven traditional farming techniques as well as some more experimental crop production (plant guilds,sheet mulching, mushrooms etc.)in the gardens. We are seeking a highly motivated individual interested in gaining invaluable and unique practical experience. The successful applicant must be flexible, able to take initiative, and open to the multitude of challenges involved in working for a young, evolving NGO in remote rural Ghana. Must be fluent in English. French is also spoken by the co-directors. Length of Position
July 2014 – June 2015
Applications for shorter periods, 3 months minimum of availability also will be considered.
We ask for 5 hours of work daily, five days per week. Weekends will be free, but, on weekends when the volunteer remains at the yard, it is expected he or she will water once per day, as necessary.
Trinity Yard School is located approximately 3 kilometers from Cape Three Points—a remote fishing/farming village on the Southern tip of Ghana overlooking the Gulf of Guinea. Volunteers live in male and female dorms located a short walk from the school and farm. All basic necessities are provided, including meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) on-site by the TYS kitchen staff. The yard, which is located on beachfront property, offers volunteers daily access to beach volleyball, swimming, snorkeling, and a variety of surf spots.
