Are sustainability and ecology important to you? You enjoy the clear, fresh air and life of the countryside and being surrounded by lush green hills? In rural Ireland we can offer you the opportunity to volunteer alongside experts in ecology and other local and international volunteers. You can support the centre's efforts towards a greener future and at the same time deepen your knowledge of ecology and sustainability.
At an eco-training center run by a non-profit organization, you can support the project staff in their daily tasks such as gardening, plant care, harvesting and composting, as well as doing maintenance work of the facilities. Assist in the planning and implementation of courses, seminars and tours on the topics of organic horticulture, food production, healthy eating, renewable energies and sustainable living, which are offered to interested individuals, school classes and clubs. Support the team of the in-house organic shop and café, selling vegetables, plants, seeds, tools, books, organic and fair trade whole foods and advise customers.
You will also help with administrative and planning tasks in the office, such as handling course bookings, communicating with customers, doing purchases and stock keeping, finances and marketing.
In addition, this stay in Ireland is of course ideal for improving your English skills, gaining international work experience and getting to know like-minded people.
