The volunteers in this project will have the unique opportunity to get to know and explore the traditional Icelandic dairy and vegetable/carrots farming. Our host cultivates carrots, has cows and runs a tourist accommodation.

The main tasks in this project will mainly be connected with the carrots cultivation. Volunteers will be working in the fields, covering the garden beds with plastic wraps. There will be some cleaning tasks too, for instance cleaning the garden beds and beautifying the area around. Those who are interested in farm animals are invited to take a look at the cows in the stalls, assist in milking them if interested or just tending to them in general.

Iceland is highly dependent on imports for its fruit and vegetable consumption. Only about 1% of the total land area is under arable cultivation. The cool climate and restricted growing season only allow for the cultivation of food crops such as carrots, potatoes, turnips, cabbage, and cauliflower.

Project dates:

  • July 20 - August 3, 2016
  • August 17 - August 31, 2016
