We collaborate with a network of organic farms on the island and have our own small holding through which we grow our own foods and experiment with different crops and fruits. Very big on potatoes!! We supply volunteers onto the farms we work with together with funding and resources. We expect our volunteers to be fully engaged with planning and researching projects they work on and in learning from the experience.
