Country

ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA

Location

Eastern Caribbean

Type of Farm

 

Farm Information

We have a piece of land on which we are building a house, on the island of Barbuda (via Antigua) in the Eastern Caribbean. We also have a very small art and craft business selling to tourists so artistic volunteers may contribute to this. There are also some opportunities for other community development work in the village if you have specific skills to offer such as in sport or in the arts, but there are very few resources so imaginative and very resourceful people are happiest here. September is usually worst hurricane month so beware coming then.

Activities for WWOOFers

Volunteer help is needed to clear the land to encourage pasture for horses and goats and to plant crops such as melon, butternut, papaya etc. rainfall permitting. Any skills in horticulture or other sustainable small scale farming methods (especially irrigation or alternative energy) especially welcome.

BOLIVIA

Location

Valle de la Concepción, provincia Avilez, Tarija - Bolivia

Type of Farm

 

Farm Information

I have 4 hectares of vinyards, vestibles and construccion that includes the only actual hostel in the town, a restaurant and a place for artisan winemaking. The farm is the only totally organic in the area with full organic treatment for vinyards and frutal plants, it's an example for the neighbors and local farms. We work organic since 10 years in a very difficult place to communicate and show the benefits of this culture. We do all as we can to spread the organic world in the area. I work all day in everything it's need to do, for example curing vinyards, the harvest, to make wine, to sell it, to make promotions and touristic trips inside the farm because there's almost no help. I only have 4 workers that are local farmers who also live in the farm. I dream to return to nature, to the antique good practices in harmony with the land, and also to invite the fruits of this hard work that is an organic fine wine handmade by this little group of dreamers. We also want to be known as a temple of good wine tasting, relax and friendship.

BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS

Location

the hills of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. Peaceful location above a bay with good fishing and surfing.

Type of Farm

Small Organic Farm

Farm Information

We also run an Arts and craft studio in a bay near by. Creative and inspired people are welcome in our lives. Great spot for travellers who want to experience the BVI with all the benefits of local knowledge. Also good resource for contacts throughout the Caribbean. The BVI is quite an expensive place to visit and not a traditional "back packer" destination.....however by staying with us you would be inside a community that lives cheaply and enjoys the pleasures of healthy food, beautiful nature, great fishing, diving, surfing and sailing.

DOMINICA (COMMONWEALTH)

Location

Sineku, Carib Reserve, Dominica, Caribbean

Type of Farm

organic farm and guest accommodation in the Carib Reserve in Dominica, focussing on local organic foods (especially from the farm) for its guests.

Farm Information

Visit our website for some more information. Internet access in the area is reasonably poor. There is no internet available on the farm, but there is the possibility of some access in Castle Bruce (the nearest town). However, guaranteed access is available in Roseau, on the other side of the Island. Please excuse slow replies to your emails.

Activities for WWOOFers

 

Meals

Clean, Government provided drinking water is available at the bottom of the farm, near the road, but it is a 15 min walk uphill to the farm. Most foods would be taken from the farm, or local area. Keith will prepare meals, and cook for you (but you will probably get into this yourself, too). He will teach you how to pick the necessary foods for meals and snacks, and to prepare them in a traditional way. Foods such as: Pineapples, mangoes, dasheen, yams, herbs, bananas, plantain, cocoa, coffee, cucumbers (too many to mention) - almost anything tropical.

Lodging

With ideas towards natural, renewable energy (although at the moment no electricity is used), the accommodations are made from local resources, and made in a traditional fashion. Your accommodation would be in one of the guest huts, which are made of straw and wood. They are watertight, but open to nature. You can expect to have lizards, birds and perhaps the odd land crab in your hut, at sometime or another. As there is no running water, bathing would be in the nearby rock pool that Keith has made in the nearby river.
