LOCATION : Four blocks south of the centre of Hopkins directly on the beach
TRAVEL : by bus from Dangriga (20 mi.) 2.$ U.S.
Near the centre of the seaside village of Hopkins in Belize there is a small hotel known as Ransoms Seaside Garden. This garden was established in 1981 and is a fine and rare collection of tropical flora cultivated along purely organic lines and serves to be the setting for a two-room cabana and a single Garden Room that opens to the lobby and the beach. Help is needed to maintain the watering and repotting of the collection as well as general cleaning and upkeep, propagation, germination, etc. My name is Baron Swann and I have lived here in Hopins by the Sea for over 20 years. As a dedicated gardener I have created a unique garden that has become internationally renown. The accommodation that I may offer is a private room fully furnished with appointments for comfort and repose. It would be my pleasure to host a single male gardener who has carpentry skills and/or creative skills in pottery, for I make Pots and Jardineers for the collection and usually need assistance now that I have, by the Grace of God, become ageable and mellow and somewhat slow.

Secluded Dalmatian village 15 min drive from the beaches that were destroyed in the war. Nobody lives there now and the need for organic food is enormous. House is refurbished by the government and contains 3 bedrooms. Land next to it has not been worked on for the last 10 years and it is planned for it to become an organic farm. The plan is to grow an olive orchard and grow various vegetables. This is a pilot project and is a great start to teach locals about organics. Need for very experienced farmers and project managers who will commit long term. This is a story of a beautiful Dalmatian village A local NGO for promotion of organic production is very active. We prefer vegetarians and vegans. This is a perfect place for expanding tourism beyond laying on the beach, it is a great challenge and with some hard work it can become one of the best organic, vegetarian farms.

This traditional small farm in Arcadia has been neglected for over 20 years. We are clearing invaded scrub and trees, re-establishing the vineyard and the fruitt and nut trees (but not the former wheat and livestock). The land is steep and terraced, so almost all work must be done by hand and this farm will never be a commercial venture. This is NOT a suitable farm if you want to learn about contemporary organic farming on a commercial scale.

I have a small property in Mexico and am interested in establishing raised beds for an organic vegetable and flower garden. I cannot be there from April until October and would like to find someone with gardening experience who would make a six month commitment to this project. The house is small and brand new, with lovely curves, sleeping alcove in one large room, kitchenette and composting toilet. Rent is normally $330 per month, but I would only ask for $150 and work trade. It is a wooded property, located in a friendly rancho outside of San Miguel Allende in the high desert country. I bought it 8 years ago, and it has taken me this long to pay off the original loans and raise a small but magical house. There is a well with good water. Property is about 1/3 acre. Have access to irrigation water from artesian spring that abutts property. Now I really want to put in a garden, but I have to go home to work for six months. Looking for the person who can love this spot of earth as much as I do. Rainy season will begin around May or June. Now the country is blossoming sweet perfumed yellow mesquite and guisache.

You will have good opportunity to meet other young people/friends of us who also will be at the farm from time to time. You will mostly be helping us with the vegetables. There will also be plenty of time for exploring, fishing, free diving (no air), socialicing, food making and so on.

We have an organic dairy farm which produces basically milk & meat. Our production is a compromise between modern & idealistic farming. This summer we are interested in having a couple of responsible, experienced WWOOFers, who could live & work for two months on our summer farm in the mountains. With the right expectations this could be a once in a lifetime experience, as you will live in a very rustic setting, which allows a glimpse of summer farm life, in the old days. Occasional WWOOFers are welcome from May - September, on the main Farm where we grow & harvest winter food for the cattle and a herb and vegetable garden for ourselves. There are also 2 donkeys & a cat to take care of. We are a young transnational couple. Regina is from Trinidad & Tobago and Lars is Norwegian. We are interested in having WWOOFers who are open, curious, interested & engaged. Vegetarians are not a problem but you must tell this in advance. Vegans could be a problem - we do live on a dairy farm.

Cela is a 50 acre woodland holding with a year round unpolluted stream stiuated in hills about 5 miles from the SW coast. About half the land is old cork oak woodland with its associated eco-system intact and the rest is land which we are reclaiming from eucalyptus planting, mixed woodland and garden patches. Apart from the abundant wildlife, we have wild boars crossed with domestic pigs for our own use. We derive little income from the land, to which we loosely refer as a nature reserve, but we have a massive work load keeping tracks open and some control over what would otherwise become an inaccessible fire risk. We need help clearing & burning undergrowth, clearing tracks and cultivating gardens. Also more skilled help is needed with pruning cork trees and fencing. July - early Sept is very hot & dry with high fire risk so we don't encourage visitors at this time. As Cela is isolated we would, for social reasons, prefer couples. We offer a two-berth caravan or camping and if you wish to self-cater we can come to an arrangement regarding work load.

We purchased most of the land and the houses a short time ago. For the last 20 years no maintenance has been done at all.
