Afternoon permaculture courses
Left by Workawayer (Anthony) for host
Well I am afraid I am not going to be really different from the other reviews. I first thought people were over reacting positively when they said it was their best project. I have been volunteering for 6 month now, did 7 projects and it was my best by far! How so? Because it is both such powerful human and technical experience! Human first with Sandrine and Russ that are great caring leaders with such a collaborative spirit, they do their best to make you grow. I learned so much from their social and managing skills. It is also a human experience living off grid in this beautiful place with 10 other volunteers. Enjoying the river and the simple and so powerful moments of life's. Sky is the limit there!
Technical thanks to all the sub projects going on (mud house, planting, reforestation, building, gardening...) and the great courses Russ is providing every afternoon! On top of that Sandrine life coach helped me a lot to think and project my future! She is also offering meditational activities! Thank you so much Sandrine and Russ I learned so much about myself and all the projects you are leading!
You have to go and don't stay less than a month or you will leave frustrated there is so much to do and learn!

I had the time of my life on this farm, it's like a paradise. The work is versatile and only a few hours a day. The permaculture course was very interesting. The hosts are relaxed and easy going. I was planning to stay 2 weeks but ended up staying 22 days. Thank you Russ, Sandrine and Lili for an experience of a life time. All the best for the future!

Truly one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had! This farm, and the extraordinary people who run it, are absolutely incredible. I learned about so much about the land and about myself. I connected with people I hope to know for the rest of my life. Thank you deeply, Russ, Sandrine, Lili, the other volunteers, and La Sierra Nevada!

I'm leaving this feedback 3-4 months after my one month stay. I still have vivid memories of the farm and its impact is still present in my daily actions. This place is perfect to find yourself, your limits and to evolve on all different levels. Sandrine is a truly remarkable human being. I hope the farm is doing good!
Rémi, with a lot of love. <3
At our farm Love Grows, we accept volunteers. Come and volunteer at our farm and learn about Permaculture and yourself. The volunteer programme is offered to help develop the farm, school and the participants. Our farm is a tropical farm with many fruit trees and a nursery. The idea of volunteering gives the participants the opportunity to learn about sustainable living first hand. We teach Permaculture through an introduction to Permaculture course offered to volunteers whom stay at least two weeks with us. A typical day starts with breakfast at 7am followed by a short meeting dividing daily tasks. The tasks typically last 3 hours until around midday. We eat lunch together and then at 3pm volunteers are invited to attend the introduction to Permaculture course modules of which there are 7, Introduction, Soils, Patterns, Water, Trees, Beds/seeds/bioconstruction, personal design exercise. Participants of the volunteer programme receive three cooked meals a day, can either stay in their own tent or one of ours, or depending on availability can stay in one of our huts or hammocks. The cost for a volunteer to stay with us and receive all of the before mentioned is 20000 COP per day per person (approx $5.30) You can view our full profile on the volunteer platform site workaway
