permaculture, schlossPermaculture Garden Schloss Glarisegg is looking for volunteers for 2-4 weeks.  Living in a little beautiful wood caravan, eating fresh vegetables from the garden and exploring the permaculture… Are you interested?

European Voluntary Service in Schloss Glarisegg, Switzerland

From Schloss Glarisegg volunteer website page: “The European Voluntary Service is a programme promoting cultural exchange and informal ways of learning. Young European people between 18 and 30 can participate. Your food and lodging, insurance, pocket money, a German language course and your travel costs will be covered by the European Voluntary Service (EVS) program.

Each year we can offer two vacancies from the 1st of February until the 30th of November. The project is about working in the permaculture garden of our eco-village in North-eastern Switzerland, as well as living in the ecovillage. We are an intentional community of approximately 35 adults and 15 children, situated directly between the shore of a beautiful big lake and a forest – and still close to nice cities”.

The main voluntary work within the project is about permaculture gardening.

Most of your working time, you will be involved in

  • the garden,
  • preparing beds,
  • sowing,
  • planting,
  • harvesting,
  • looking after our ducks and chickens, etc.

You will experience one entire season from the beginning to the end. It is a great opportunity to learn about gardening, self-suppliance with vegetables and permaculture. It will be the fifth time for us to welcome volunteers and we are really looking forward to you.

We have seen how volunteers profit a lot from their experiences when they stay with us.

Many say that they learn a lot about themselves, about communication and about living and working together.
