Organic Farming & Gardening Techniques

What happens when I apply?

This organic gardening project has been working since 2006, focusing mainly on fruits, vegetables and herbs. It is a 9 ha farm in rural areas with very few inhabitants. There are also several workshops going on about environmental awareness, ecological production and consumption. The main goal is to point out the alternative and ecological ways of living and growing fruits and vegetables which are after sold in small farm shop.

Typically you will work from Monday to Friday from 8am until 2.30pm with a lunch break. You will learn a lot about organic gardening and their main tasks will be planting, harvesting, pruning and weeding. You will be provided with all necessary working tools and other things like gloves, pruning shears etc.

This project takes place in one of the most beautiful parts of Spain – Asturias. It has a very specific climate and it is known as the greenest part of this country. It is also famous for its rugged coastline, mountain landscapes, religious sites and medieval architecture. Asturias and its Picos de Europa National Park is a paradise for mountaineers, cavers, kayakers and walkers. The farm is located just few kilometres from Ribadeo.

 

In the farm there is a little house with three rooms for volunteers. The fully equiped kitchen and bathrooms with hot water are located in the main building. You will get sheets, towels, blanket and other basic things you will need. There is also a computer with the access to the Internet.

 

Getting to the farm is very easy. Very close to it there is a train station which goes from Oviedo and Gijón. You can also get there by bus.

Volunteers must have good working Spanish language skills. The farm is operated by locals and English is not so commonly spoken.

More information

Once you have found a project you like, start the application process and let our experienced team build your volunteer vacation, personalised to you. We make the planning and pre-departure process as quick and hassle free as possible.

After registering with us (during registration, you will need to agree to our terms and conditions, here: Volunteer_T&C) and then paying the registration fee, we will review your application and match you to the project in the destination country.

We want to ensure the project is suitable for you but also that the project receives suitable volunteers. Next we will send you confirmation of your reserved spot on the project plus a detailed information pack. This covers project details and practicalities along with requirements for visas, vaccinations, local climate and safety information.

Are you looking for a seamless, pre-departure service customised to you? We can take care of those complicated pre-departure needs for you. Pick and mix whichever services you require, for example:

  • Flight bookings
  • Visa application processing
  • Transport connection arrangements
  • Expert consultation. Talk one on one with one of experts

and more, based on your requirements. Contact us for more information at info@voluntair.cz

Simplicity:
A volunteer trip overseas is a complex undertaking compared to regular vacation. Particularly the planning and preparation. We work hard taking care of those details so that you don’t have to worry about them. Apply online, we will take care of the rest.

Trust:
The world of volunteering offers a unique experience to travel and immerse yourself in authentic cultures, contribute, challenge yourself and most of all have fun. Going outside of your comfort zone far from home can be daunting. Paying money to an organisation far away can also be unsettling. But it doesn’t have to be. We partner with only trusted, verified projects that genuinely contribute to the local environment and community. Also, 100% of your project fees go directly to the local project, not to us.

Service quality:
We are obsessed with customer service and quality of delivery. From the moment you contact us we want you to have a friendly but professional experience. From the quality of the projects we offer, to the pre and post trip service with us we want to exceed your expectations.

Transparency:
We are an agency service, offering volunteering overseas. We do not operate any volunteer projects ourselves. Instead we have spent months, years, identifying and verifying locally-run projects and organisations in destinations around the world.
