Volunteering at a permaculture farm
From March to November we host volunteers that want to learn about a different lifestyle. We select adventurous people that are looking for alternatives to absorbing jobs.
They come to Bogata Suma for a month or longer, and we teach them about a self sufficient, independent life, about the ways of nature and permaculture, about teaming up with nature to feed the earth, the soil, wildlife and ourselves.
We aim to inspire these people to life a simple, fulfilling life in the countryside, in harmony with nature..
As a volunteer we expect you to be part of our family and daily routines. That includes preparing meals, setting the table, doing the dishes, cleaning, sweeping the floor et cetera.
The kind of work and the time we get up, are depending on the season. We work around 6 hours a day.
"Your way of life is an inspiration for me. The simplicity of it and the passion in it."

Usually we start the day in the garden with weeding, sowing, planting and harvesting the meal of the day. When we’re done in the garden, we work on a job from our list, depending on our priorities and your interests and skills and what you want to learn. It could involve woodworking, wood-construction work, maintaining the terrain, working in the forest garden or in the orchard, or more garden work.
Personal development and learning in the crafts area is special interest of Peter. Creative construction with various materials is possible.
Barbara can teach you about permaculture and organic gardening, self sufficiency, companion planting, composting, her experiments with gardening with the moon calender, solar drying, making wine from various fruits, liqueur, various jams or anything else from our harvest, working with wool...
