VOLUNTEER IN UGANDA: ORGANIC FARMING PROJECT
Volunteers with a green thumb, or those who just want to plunge their hands into deep, rich, African soil, will be interested in an organic farming placement. This village based placement teaches and promotes modern methods of organic farming in rural Ugandan communities. Volunteers work alongside Ugandansdigging and maintaining demonstration gardens. Activities include raised bed and double-dug farming to best utilize soil and make planting, harvesting, and fertilizing easier.
Volunteers also teach water conservation by lining large pits with plastic bags to collect and store rain water. The organization composts garden refuse and spreads it as fully organic fertilizer, and shows how to createpesticides by mixing ingredients such as tobacco, chili pepper, and onion. Volunteers will be given basic training upon arrival. A small nursery school is a recent addition to the placement, and can be a refreshingly shady place to volunteer after a morning of digging. It benefits the severely rural poor and orphaned children of the area. Volunteers are given a private room at the organization’sheadquarters, with their door opening directly onto a lush, green farm.
