Q: Who can volunteer at Adagatiya?
A: Anyone can volunteer independent of any previous experience, age or sex. You should be a team worker and enjoy physical work. A passion or interest for (permaculture) gardening, plants and animals, nature, craftsmanship could be a very good reason for you to volunteer. As the main ethoses of our project are freedom and respect, we do not wish to become anyone’s boss and as such we depend on enthusiastic and autonomous individuals.
Q: What conditions can I expect to live in?
A: Having moved to the land ourselves very recently, we can only offer an minimal level of comfort. So if you can enjoy living a few weeks/months in the cosy enclosure of a tent, being sung to sleep by cicadas and washing up in our open air shower, the job is yours. We do however have very decent electricity and a fairly decent Internet connection in our community “office-
van”, that you can make use of in your free time.
Q: Will I be paid? What benefits can I expect from volunteering?
A: We are not able to provide any financial compensation at the moment, but we will of course provide accommodation and all the food you can eat. You should get enough free time to explore the beautiful country of Portugal as well. The main reason for volunteering in the first place is however to meet new people, gain lots of experience and learn, learn, learn! 🙂
We love to have a good time together making music, dancing, playing games and learn, learn, learn from YOU!
Q: How much will I have to work?
A: You won’t have fixed shifts, but the average workload may add up to around 30 hours per week. This depends however on the current schedule and special projects that are happening during your stay. Befitting your interests and abilities, we will setup an individual working schedule together with you.
