About

For several years we have been practicing permaculture methods in Garden, located next to the hystorical building (build in 17th century), in a very nice area, 4 km from the center of Ikskile city, close to the river Daugava. Garden has an area of 1,6 ha.
We’re in a process of transition to organic farming, to become Organically Certified Garden. The aim is to create an experiment and demonstration garden of permaculture methods, where to explore and to try on hugelbeds, mulchig, and various permaculture design elements and methods. We are working on complex planning on a large scale for approximatelly 0,4h territory.
Afterwards the garden will be a public place- open for excursions and will present the permaculture principles in practice.

The Garden is hosted by community, founded by active and susceptible locals, including parents who founded first alternative school in this area, located in historical building next to the Garden. The school is a part of eco-schools network. Every day we provide organic and vegetarian food for children. School uses holistic approach which devotes equal attention to physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual development of each person. Community is hosting a direct buying point as well, where locals can buy organic food directly from farmers and also organising restaurant nights to promote healthy food. We are also hosting a seed library, with the aim to collect and preserve local varieties of plants. We are cooperating with seed savers in Europe.

WWOOF Volunteer will have a great opportunity to come and learn about organic growing techniques in our garden. We can show an example of alternative way of life and inspire to live differently, to live better, to save planet’s resources and to „think green”.
We need extra hands working in the garden during the summer season. Mainly for weeding, harvesting, berry picking, lawn mowing, etc.
