Food growing for self-sufficiency

Duration: 3 months

Daily Tasks

Although more closely associated with the work in the kitchen garden, the volunteer will, like everyone else who lives in Buddha Garden, participate in the morning work sessions 6.15 – 9.00am every morning Monday to Friday. Work takes place in the kitchen garden at this time only if there are enough volunteers for the other farm work. For the kitchen garden there are two or three extra sessions either 10.00 – 12.30pm or 4.00 – 5.30pm according to need. Volunteers sign up for two extra sessions in addition to the morning work sessions.

Skills gained

The project is an excellent opportunity to get a knowledge through a full experience "on site", as it is commonly learned in Auroville.
