Casita Verde - Ibiza
Casita Verde in Ibiza is our first and most established ecology centre and was founded by Chris Dews in 1993.
We're located in a beautiful valley near the village of San Jose. The main centre is a rented farm with amazing sea views and many traditional features of the Ibicenco landscape (see our video here). Working with over 1000 volunteers for more than 20 years the original farm has been transformed into an ecological education centre on 5.5 hectares of land.
Volunteer for a Day - members free, non members a donation of €10 (which includes life membership of the association Ibiza Ecologic). Join us for the daily briefing at 9.30am, then work in the gardens or the kitchen or on one of our construction projects until lunchtime at around 2.30pm, when we serve a delicious vegan meal. Join a tour in the afternoon and the rest of the day is yours to continue working or relax before returning home. Daily volunteering runs from Tuesday to Saturday each week and you'll need to provide your own transportation.
Volunteer for a Week or Two - donation of €200 for the first week and €150 for the second. Join us as a member of our community. Live in a yurt, the tree house or in other eco-friendly accommodation. Help prepare breakfast once or twice during the week, work in the gardens, the kitchen, the media centre or on other projects until lunchtime. Enjoy a delicious, healthy vegan lunch and then spend the rest of the day doing your own thing - read a book under a carob tree, explore the local countryside, go to the beach or take one of the electric bikes for a cycle around the coastline.
Longer Term Volunteering - is available on request, depending on the permanent volunteer positions we have available, with a donation made depending on your experience.
