Volunteer in Spain with Sunseed Desert Technology

Sunseed is a UK and Spanish charity, situated in a beautiful village in southern Spain.

Our mission is to develop, demonstrate and communicate low-tech solutions to living in a semi-arid region and sustainable ways of living. Hundreds of volunteers from around the world come to work at Sunseed each year. They work in all of our departments and participate in all aspects of community life at Sunseed.

Most visitors thoroughly enjoy their stay and take home with them a better understanding of what a sustainable way of living is truly about. Working visitors, students and long term volunteers join our friendly, international project.

Have you ever thought you´d like to try living in a community? Sunseed is a living community that offers its visitors the opportunity to learn how to live a greener life. A visit to Sunseed is an excellent way to learn to live more simply and launch yourself into a lower carbon life.

What to Expect?

We live off-grid, depending on solar power. The lifestyle here is basic - think indoor camping - but 90% of our volunteers tell us that their experience at Sunseed has had an impact on their lifestyle. Volunteers work part time or full time: all volunteers work on community-based projects in the mornings; full-timeers work on their own projects in the afternoons.

There is also a household rota that everyone at Sunseed signs up to. There is plenty more information available on our website at www.sunseed.org.uk. Every volunteer pays a weekly rate to cover food, full board (vegetarian) and project costs. I
