    Description

    We are a small B and B located on a working farm located in the hills of Managua overlooking volcanoes and forest. We have opportunities primarily in agriculture but also in running the B and B too. If you have interest in permaculture, have a strong work ethic, can drive a standard (stick) truck, and would enjoy meeting Farmstay guests, get in touch with us. Family-run with babies and young children living onsite. We do fun stuff too, with our swimming pool and various outings to beaches, volcanoes, lakes, islands, colonial towns, etc.

    Help

    We always have ag and maintenance projects ongoing. For example in ag: digging holes to plant plantains in, transplanting vetiver grass on lines of contour, mounding up and layering hugelkuktur beds, planting beans and corn, chopping weeds, picking fruit, etc. Maintenance: painting, landscaping, gardening, small repairs. Ideally, early morning hours for ag and later in the day do maintenance tasks.
    I would also like some occasional help with picking up and dropping off of guests at the airport and eventually leading some tours. Having permaculture experience with valid driver’s license would be ideal. Three month commitment preferred. Room and board and some possible tips from guests.
