Hello from Nicaragua,
We are two writers who have a 15 acre piece of land in the Pacific Coast of rural Nicaragua. We are from Argentina and USA and just opened an Art and Yoga Retreat and have been running an educational foundation for seven years.
We are looking for a bilingual person willing to volunteer for one year as a Farm Manager or Head Gardener in our farm, with considerable experience in growing food organically, particularly in the tropics.
Why a volunteer? Because we do not have the money to pay a salary yet!
Ideally this person will be able to make the land produce to being able to earn money for paying his/her own salary if he/she decides to stay after the first volunteer year.
This position is ideal for someone with training in agriculture and a bit of experience of farm management with some other experience of managing people in a working environment Responsibilities include: Permaculture gardens: Plan, organize and construct growing areas; build soil fertility; plant, care for, harvest and sell produce, designing and applying systems to improve the sustainability of the farm and managing Nicaraguan workers.
What you get in exchange: A beautiful place to live, a 10 minutes walk from the ocean, in a Nicaraguan community, practicing Spanish and unlimited free yoga classes for the volunteer year.
Please notice that this is not a position for people younger than 21 years old or without experience.
