Description: Since 2000 we have had volunteers around the world joining our summer programs which were designed around building sustainable vegetable farming facilities. We are hoping to transform our eco-friendly vegetable farming facility into a sustainable organic farming training center that teaches low-income families how to grow healthy greens on their own. We are planning to donate any crops from our facilities to families in need in addition to providing them with the knowledge of how to grow their own crops.
Type of Work: The main works are planting vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, radishes, etc at the eco-farming camp. Also, volunteers may work on making fences to protect the farm, etc. Quite tiring but let's enjoy it.
Study Theme: Eco farming methods/know-how of other countries. The future plan of international workcamps etc.
Accommodation: Ger (Mongolian traditional tent) or summer house. Please bring a sleeping bag. A mattress will be provided. Volunteers will cook/clean by turn. Music player and some card and board games are available. The shower is available too.
Requirements: To like farming/physical work and being flexible/ adaptable.
