The organic agriculture volunteer program is our most recommended volunteer program in Nepal for those looking to get out into the countryside and get their hands dirty alongside local farmers that will make your soul light up. Working in organic soil can be awakening and meditative and working with Nepali farmer community can be self empowering experience. This program is suitable for you if you love nature, want to get immersed in simple life lived in nepali mountains in unspoiled natural setting.
Nepal has six seasons and based on seasons the agricultural works are different. You will work as assistant for local farmers and help in seasonal day to day works. The most activities will be planting crops, vegetables and harvesting them. Some activities will be working in green house to grow vegetables. The working hours are 2-5 hours each day depending on season of work as most agricultural works in Nepal are seasonal.
Our programs are always ongoing so you can decide to come on any date that suits you. Plan your Nepal trip and book flight tickets and let us know which we regard your confirmation and your spot as booked. We will come airport to pick you up. The program fee you can pay directly once you arrive here. After orientation and kathmandu tour we will place you in your project in a mountain village in annapurna at altitude of 900meters from sea level.
The farming practices are organic and, for the most part, don’t involve complex technology, so you can learn how much the water buffalo supports the farm. Of course you’ll also find out if you have the physical skills to keep up with the job. The days are not that long, however, so if you participate in the organic agriculture volunteer program, you’ll have plenty of time to relax after a hard day’s work.
