The Fruition Center is equal parts permaculture education center, hostel, and the heart of our farm. We have built this center to create and support a harmonious social and ecological environment, utilizing Permaculture, Biodynamics and Non-Violent Communication.
We are currently searching for:
- Volunteers/staff with general construction knowledge – assisting with improving infrastructure, knowledge of building structures with basic supplies
- Volunteers/staff with general experience with farming – composting, irrigation, planting etc.
- Volunteers/staff with Social Media marketing experience – updating Facebook, Instagram, taking photos/video etc
Volunteers and Staff Opportunities are open at the farm! Helping hands and hearts are always welcome!
Our programs offers volunteers the opportunity to live and work on a tropical farm based in Permaculture design, while practicing methods in Biodynamics and Organic Agriculture. Located 800 meters above sea level within a rural farming village, there is weekly opportunity for cultural immersion and sightseeing the beautiful vistas.
Staff and volunteer accommodations are rustic and beautiful. The center staff and volunteers are welcome to camp or stay in the dormitory. Amenities include warm solar showers, Wi-Fi and electricity, kitchen, outdoor dry composting toilets and a laundry facility.
The communal kitchen is stocked with rice, oats, beans, and basic spices. Harvesting seasonal fruits and vegetables is a weekly task we also share, since most of the food we consume comes from the farm itself. A great luxury for everyone to enjoy.
Responsibilities of meal preparation and clean up is shared amongst all of us, this is counted as part of the working hours. Although our diet is primarily whole foods vegetarian based, we do eat eggs and dairy products and occasionally fish.
Volunteers are asked to collaborate 4hrs per day (20 hours weekly) Monday-Friday in exchange for a dormitory bed. A fee of $10 per day is required in exchange of 3 meals a day. There's no a minimum time commitment.
Provide a means for us to receive long term assistance with the activities on the farm and within the center. Staff positions are available for a minimum 3 month commitment. Staff positions require an average of 30 hours per week in exchange for meals/accommodation. (6 hours per day Monday-Friday; we reserve the weekend as a days of leisure.); with a small contribution of $35 per week to contribute to costs. Work hours are based on integrity, co-collaboration, self-regulation and productivity.
