Organization: SEEDS Iceland

Detail: Our tasks will mainly be focused on improving the environment in and preparing the place for the winter. We will assist in cleaning up the area, clearing old fences and replacing them, painting and preparing the farm for winter in various ways. Volunteers will be able to assist in regular farm work such as milking, riding and collecting hay. We will have the opportunity to live and work with an Icelandic family, participating in the diverse tasks that they are involved in, in their daily lives.

Background: For the third year in a row SEEDS volunteers will be working at a farm in the South of Iceland, on the feet of the mighty and famous Eyjafjallajökull, which last erupted in 2010. This is a unique opportunity to get to know and to experience first-hand how a family in the countryside lives. The farm is big, with sheep, cows and horses, have their own produce and we will have the opportunity to work and learn about that.
