Gardening Volunteers Needed in Cyprus – Help Required
Our garden/farm is expanding, so duties change on a regular basis. You will gain hands-on experience so if you’re afraid of insects, getting dirty or digging this will not be a good fit for you. Tasks may include:
- Animal care, planting, seed germination, watering, weeding, soil preparation & compost tumbling/mixing.
Volunteers may also use their exchange hours towards non-gardening activities:
- Walking dogs (7 large strong dogs that need daily walks).
- Yoga (willing to teach/inspire).
- Massage (willing to give to other volunteers).
- Vegetarian/Vegan cooking with our home-grown vegetables.
- Housekeeping & management.
- Art Activities.
We are flexible around your schedule. Each Sunday we plan out what chores you will be doing for the following week. You have the option to choose which days you want off and how you’d like to manage your hours.
