If you are interested in learning about environment and plant gardening, this EVS opportunity on the island of Menorca is a great chance to really make a difference, gain working experience, meet new friends and feel the beauty of nature.
PROJECT: AUTOCHTHONOUS PLANT GARDENING IN THE ISLAND OF MENORCA
This project involves the volunteer in a variety of different projects regarding nursery gardens.
The work in the nursery garden, “Es Viver”, is principally in the sphere of sustainable gardening, encouraging the use of indigenous plants. The daily tasks include watering the seedlings in the greenhouse, the plants for sale, the garden and the compost. The weekly tasks also include weeding the plants in pots and in the garden, and cleaning the pathways and the garden sheds. As well, the volunteer will work in plant production, in which the main tasks include seeding and transplanting, weeding and fertilizing plants. In addition, the volunteer will be able to help with landscaping and maintaining public and private spaces, and building and maintaining green filters for the purification of waste water. In Es Viver the different types of work vary depending on the time of the year.
Also once a week, it will be possible to help at the Recuperation Centre for Wild Animals. Here the main tasks include feeding animals (birds, turtles), as well as cleaning and maintaining the facilities of the centre. The volunteer must be flexible and be able to assume other activities proposed by the Group, as they are not always routine and can vary according to the time of the year. The volunteer will help with office work at the GOB headquarters.

When does the project start? October 2017 for 12 months.
What does it cost? This project is a European Voluntary Service project under the Erasmus + programme and therefore fully funded through the European Commission.
Except for the travel, you may have to contribute towards some or all of your travel costs to this project as it is a replacement for a volunteer who fell ill and therefore the budget has been used up.
Who can apply? People with special motivation to work with environment aged 18-30 at time of application, UK resident before and after departure, valid passport for at least 6 months year after end of activity. No criminal records.
