From the 10th-20th October, we worked with 20 German volunteers on Varanashi Organic Farms. Our work was to fertilise different trees: cacao, nutmeg, arecanut and coconut trees. We fed the plants with 45 tons of manure and covered 15 acres with it.
We worked in teams of 5-10. So, we split the work in different steps. That was very good and effective. Some people filled the buckets, some drove the trollies with the buckets to the plants and some put the manure around the plants.
We listened to loud music, sang and danced. So, we had a lot fun while working!
It was quite interesting to get know a farming project. The farm is a beautiful place with a lot of activities like swimming, playing basketball, skating, dancing, cooking and doing Yoga.
One day we hiked on a mountain to see a wonderful sunrise. All in all we had a great time there!
