This wonderful volunteer project is much more than just a farm. The ecological Farm was created in 2017 and since then operates as a place that values sustainability, healthy living, community work, ancient Mayan traditions and environmental protection. It beautifully combines aspects of ancient Mayan culture with the challenges of modern society. Approximately 25 people work at the ecological Farm and the doors are open to the habitants of San Felipe de Jesús, Antigua and surrounding communities.

Community members can learn more about the Mayan cultivation techniques, actively participate or use it on their own small farm. The rich harvest of the Farm is sold in the farm shop and cafeteria. Volunteers interested in learning more about Mayan culture are t the right place here.

Of course, there are also animals on the Eco Farm and dogs, ducks, geese, rabbits, chickens, roosters, pigeons and chompipes (turkeys) find a home on the farm.

In addition to the sustainable production of fruit and vegetables and the care of the animals, the ecological Farm serves as a community center. Especially children and women, find a place to develop personally and physically. Interesting workshops are offered on topics such as construction, crafts, arts, games, sports, yoga, permaculture, photography, cooking, healthy food, entrepreneurship, English classes, dance, recycling, first aid, survival techniques, astronomy, etc.

The aim is to provide women and children with skills and practical knowledge for daily life in a simple and dynamic way, so that they can be more independent. A clear focus is on environmental education - a major challenge in our time.

Children are encouraged to connect with themselves through wonderful holistic, dynamic and artistic activities, where they can enjoy nature, play freely, flourish and learn for life. There are also fun activities such as soccer, volleyball, rock climbing, capoeira and an area for yoga and meditation.

Tagesablauf

Volunteers can work in a wide range of activities according to their interests and skills, as well as the current need of the project. 
Among the work areas are:

Working on the farm:
Cultivation, planting, sowing and harvesting as well as caring for and feeding of the animals that live on the farm.

Helping with workshops:
Volunteers with appropriate skills and knowledge can give workshops in yoga, crafts/crafts, arts, sports activities, English classes, etc.

Construction:
Ecological building is carried out on the farm as prototype constructions. Various materials are used, such as bamboo, wood and ecological bricks. The constructions are currently all being erected on the permises of the farm. However, the aim is to use this construction method in other areas or in our own community in the near future.

Carpentry:
Manufacture of chairs, tables, shelves, children's games, toys, planters, animal enclosures and repair work.

Kitchen/Cooking:
Cooking classes and workshops for the women and children of the community with a strong focus on healthy nutrition. Vegetables, herbs and fruit grown in the area are used. Also, hygiene standards in the kitchen, the handling of food and basic rules in kitchen organization are taught.
The large farm kitchen also produces products for the farm shop and on-site cafeteria. The products are mainly vegan or vegetarian.

Eco Fashion:
Heard about upcycling? Learn how to make something new out of old. Garments such as bags, purses, accessories, blouses, hats, dresses are made with used clothing. The women make alterations to the clothes to give them a new use. For example, an old pair of trousers can be converted into a bag, and an old pair of jeans into a purse. Sewing workshops are offered for the children and women of the community to learn an occupation. This allows them to earn an income by selling their products.

Volunteers can work on a half day schedule from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm or on a full day schedule until about 5 pm in the afternoon. 


Note: The tasks may vary. They depend on factors such as number of volunteers, season, current needs of the project, as well as self-motivation. Not every volunteer may be fully involved in all these tasks.
