Volunteer in sustainable agriculture and farming, and learn about better techniques to grow food. By volunteering in farming in Guatemala you can join a team of dedicated people that provides training to small farmers on how to maximize their yield while at the same time approaching farming in a more sustainable and eco-friendly way.
The sustainable agriculture project aims to help medium and small farmers get the education they need to maximize their yield with limited resources responsibly and efficiently.
Volunteers in the agricultural project work alongside project staff in the training grounds for the farmers in:
-Responsible and efficient use of fertilizers.
-Case studies for small farmers.
-Market research on market trends.
-Teaching new farming methods.
-Assisting with educational grants for small farmers.
The agriculture program is great for people who are passionate about sustainable living, like to spend time outdoors and are team workers.
Arrival to the program are most Sundays.
On arrival you are greeted by our friendly coordinators and taken to your accommodation. Next day you meet with all the volunteers and interns that came the previous days for orientation.
