Post-Volcano: Eco-Community Volunteer Body Work
Physical Work in Hawaii – Work as a Workout!
Many Volunteers and Interns who have worked on our community in the tropics describe themselves as feeling more fit and healthy than they have in years!
If you are from the city and have not done much physical work before do not get discouraged! We have plenty of things to do such as light weeding or cleaning which is not too strenuous! As long as you have enthusiasm and a willingness to learn then you will pick up new skills while you are here.
Volunteer jobs for those who like BODY work!
- Weeding – We weed the invasive species and replace them with lush flowers, plants, fruits, and trees.
- Sustainable Gardener: Assisting in ground preparation, planting, plant identification, composting, harvesting. If you like working with a machete, a shovel a pickax or weedwacker then you will love our volcanic jungle landscape!
