The Project: Permaculture, Sustainable Community. From March 2014
We Need Volunteers, Scuba divers, Intern and Trainees, to help us maintain a joint sustainable permaculture community, combining Marine and Terrestrial research to create a centre for learning and experimentation, in sustainable organic and marine farming.
The location is; Newieba, Dahab, and Mt St Katherine’s in beautiful South Sinai, where we will be constructing, implementing, monitoring, maintaining, fish, fauna, mangrove, coral propagation and cultivation techniques, to compliment organic farming and building projects using recycled and natural materials wherever possible. Water recycling, natural desalination methods. Alternative power methods will also be investigated and implemented.
Applicants must be willing to share ideas, be creative, and help where necessary. On site training will be given by our team and course certification will be given where applicable. The projects will begin in April 2013 and are open all year round. So contact us as soon as possible to be sure of a place at a time that suits you, discounts for groups and clubs.
Help us make a difference !
