The European Voluntary Service is a programme promoting cultural exchange and informal ways of learning. Young 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 program.
The project is about working in the permaculture garden of our ecovillage in Northeastern Switzerland, as well as living in the ecovillage. We are a community of approx. 35 adults and 15 children, and are situated between a beautiful forest and the shore of a big lake, Lake Constance (in German: Bodensee). For further information please visit
· the website of our project: www.permakultur-bodensee.ch
· our blog: permakulturbodensee.wordpress.com/
· the website of the community www.schloss-glarisegg.ch
· the youtube-video that one of our former volunteers created (to the right)
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 fourth time for us to welcome volunteers, and we are really looking forward to you.
