Do you have a background in farming, horticulture or landscaping and want to spend a couple of months in paradise while making use of your knowledge and skills? We are looking for one or two volunteers to work in our Heritage (organic) Garden, located in Roche Caiman, on Mahe Island in the Seychelles. We need an enthusiastic and dynamic individual from 15th December 2017 to 15th February 2018 to manage our vegetable, fruit, herb and medicinal garden.
The garden falls under our Green Health program whose aim is to encourage Seychellois to grow and eat their own food. The volunteer must therefore be able to interact with members of the public who occasionally visit the garden to buy organic produce or seedlings for their own garden. You will be assisted by one of our local grounds staff.
We will provide fully furnished accommodation (including water, electricity and cooking gas) and one return international air ticket for the successful applicant for this volunteer position. To apply, please send your CV (including work references) and cover letter to email@example.com , cc to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Garden Volunteer” in the subject line before the 30th of November 2017.
