What is Expected of the Volunteers?

Volunteers have to take part in daily chores. And volunteers are expected to work according to above daily schedule. We hold meetings and share the daily chores among each other as equally as possible. Apart from these, the most important we expect is humility, good personality, enthusiasm.

We expect to become friends, brothers/sisters with our volunteers. And we try to give them as much of our knowledge and experience as possible; as long as they are willing to taken in & learn. We are also open to all new knowledge, skills that volunteers would bring with them. Our best moment are when all these are combined into new projects done together at the farm.

Please realise that should you be accepted, we have invited you into our home – If you do not respect the property, people, rules and what we ask of you, then you will be no longer welcome and you will be asked to leave immediately and without prior notice.
