The eco-farm was created around the principles of sustainable living and embracing all that nature provides for us. They focus on four main portals to spreading their message and living sustainable lives - utilizing sustainable energy resources and recycling, sustainable gardening and agriculture methods without the use of pesticides, creating a cooperative community in which everyone pitches in, and spreading knowledge through tours, workshops, seminars, and lectures.
There are two parts to this project. The first week on the project, the majority of your time will be spent in a permaculture class where you will learn about and practice the ideology and technicalities of permaculture and sustainable farming. Following the first week, you will get to dive into work on the farm. Your duties will involve:
Volunteers will have the option to visit a Bedouin community for a weekend during their stay at no additional cost. They will introduce the permaculture practices to this community and get to experience their unique culture and lifestyle.
