Exploring Europe's family traditions in farming and community building along the way.
Would you like to help in planning or become part of the team for this summer's European Caravan Trip?
As part of launching our webpage, the alternative farmer.com, we plan to pick up the caravan in Germany mid July and head into Eastern Europe, to Southern Europe and finish the trip towards Portugal. The main purpose of the trip is documenting forms of alternative farming (permaculture, horticulture and any innovative methods of designing sustainable systems with ethical land and resource use. Each member will take part in planning, fundraising (possible kickstarter), and overall having a great time! We will also offer to get our hands dirty wherever we go, conduct interviews, meet great people and have a great time as a team. Ideas are more than welcome from participating or non-participating parties Our experiences will be translated into films and articles for our news feed and we hope to find farmers to collaborate with in the future.
We are looking for a young editor or journalist to correspond with us throughout the agroecology caravan trip through Europe mid July to August this summer. This is a unique opportunity especially for international students and may be rewarded with a stipend. If you would like to apply to work together with us please send us your resume/cv, a short statement of interest and a sample of writing. Background or experience with agroecology, horticulture, permaculture etc would be great but not required. Look forward to hear from you!
All the best,
We can fix it! We just need some baling wire, some WD-40, a bit of duct tape and this tiny ad:
