Detailed description

Do you like to tackle and do you like to work outside? Then this volunteer vacancy is for you! You will work at an educational center in The Gambia for children, young people and farmers who can be part of an 'educational journey from seed to sale'. As a landscaping employee you are responsible, together with local employees, for maintaining a garden of almost 1 hectare. The work includes planting vegetables, tropical trees and shrubs, pruning, grafting, general maintenance and plant labeling.

Another possibility is to work in a beautiful botanical garden in Senegal that has been created on the basis of permaculture. Permaculture is a sustainable way of gardening. Many types of medicinal plants, fruit and vegetables grow in this garden. You work in the garden, you make compost from natural material, you work with medicinal plants and transform them into medicines. This way you gain broad experience. The products from this garden are sold in a shop, a restaurant and on the local market.
