Organic gardening and environmental awareness in Peru

  • Volunteer Opportunity posted by CADIP




Short-Term (few weeks/months)




The city of Aguaytia has been blessed with productive soils, so in this project the volunteers will install small organic gardens in the center. This activity will involve children, seniors and the volunteers who will be provided with seeds and compost in order to grow all types of vegetables, aromatic and medicinal herbs. You will install 3 biogardens (3 meters by 10 meters in size). The vegetables that will be planted are tomato, caigua, cabbage, spices, peppers, aromatic and medicinal plants, and fruits like banana, annona, pineapple, zapote, caimito and guaba.

The volunteers will also organize environmental workshops and learning sessions in order to raise awareness among local people. The activities will be carried out with the center staff and the volunteers will be supported in developing dynamic activities for children. These will include theater activities related to the topics of care and respect for the environment. At the end of this project, the talks and the plays will be presented through radio, television and other local media, to raise awareness about environmental protection.

Project dates: July 26 - August 16, 2018
