We are looking for volunteers for making an eco resort based on permaculture and SuperAbobe in India. It is a small start up (Get Set Rest) with very tight funding support. The plan is to make 5 domes with some landscaping with all our creativity. I can assist in getting visa too.

The construction will start on soon and is estimated to take until June. Ready to share my Ideas too if some one with too.

I can be contacted at vikkynaqvi@gmail.com for further details.

Regards


Waqar

Where in India is it located? May and June in most of the plains of India are awfully hot to ask volunteers to work outdoors... But there are lots of nice places in hills, so maybe you're in some cool hills somewhere?

Hi Rebbeca,

I Agree that it will be super HOT in May and June, So I am expecting early. It is situated in Nagpur, Maharashtra. It is in center of India.

Hi Rebecca, Do you have any idea how much time it takes to finish a dome with 4-5 people working ?

No, I don't know specifically about domes, but I can say from experience that building an earth building using volunteers (or course participants) takes MUCH longer than we expect it to. I mean, like four times as long and finally we have to hire mistri and kuli's to finish it properly
 
Humans and their filthy friendship brings nothing but trouble. My only solace is this tiny ad:
