Volunteer in Mexico!


Spend a month in Jonotla, Mexico volunteering at the Himalayan Institute’s community center while learning about sustainable agriculture. The Sustainable Farming Apprenticeship includes hands-on labor on the HI demonstration farm, such as terrace building, advanced composting, companion planting, and water management systems. Your work will provide direct assistance to HI Mexico in fulfilling its mission to serve as a training facility, demonstration farm and community center for local farmers. The self-transformation component and HI Mexico’s residential setting make this a unique volunteer opportunity in the beautiful Sierra Norte mountains of Mexico.
