Main Description:

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!
