This is the Deal
Taino Farm is an organic permaculture farm on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. We attract volunteers from around the world who come to stay with us to learn about alternative agriculture, sustainability, living off the grid, and just straight roughin it. The site is beautiful and is host to many great examples of permaculture. We host agro-toursits (volunteers), Interns, and also enrol participants in annual courses and weekend workshops. We are one of the only examples of permaculture in the country and welcome all who are interested to get in contact to learn more and spread the seed of knowledge.
We are located in a small pueblo in the campo. While there is a few hours of electricity from the street power, we choose to run off solar power. We have a spattering of huts built on the rocky hillside and a central communal building where people can cook and hangout. Depending on the time of year, we also encourage people to bring their own tents to pitch amongst the shelter of the food forest in this tropical jungle paradise.
Life here is not easy. We work hard and we expect you to work hard too. Hard work is always rewarded with cooling swims and great meals. We have a network within our business co-op in Cabarete - an adventure/ eco hotel that serves backpackers and eco-tourists. If you are interested in yoga, farming, sustainable food, fitness, health, adventure, tourism, and sport - we have lots to offer!
