Three meals a day and accommodation are included during your entire stay. In the morning it will be a normal style breakfast where you prepare your own bread with spreads. For the Afternoon usually sandwiches that you can prepare for yourself and for the evenings a hot meal will be eaten together. Vegetarians are catered for as best as possible but vegans, and gluten free volunteers will need to supplement their own requirements personally if needed. Trips to the store are regular to enable this.
The project is located near the east coast of Florida locked between forests, lagoons and the Ocean with incredible sand beaches! There are many opportunities to ride horse, go wildlife watching or visit the beach and Disney World!
There will be activities scheduled such as beach trips, kayaking,rodeos, festivals, fundraising events, etc with the volunteers and if you are interested, you can arrange transportation to Orlando for activities on their free days. The project is in a remote area so there is no public transport easily available. The project splits the volunteers up over the weekend on the chores, 1/2 does chores on Saturday, the other 1/2 does chores on Sunday, that way each group has a day off.
Volunteers live in shared accommodation in a lovely large ranch house on the project site. There is also a kitchen, common living area, and a laundry room with a washer and dryer. Things like plates, glasses, pots and pans, bedding, bath towels, etc are all provided. There is (most importantly) a screened in swimming pool too.
