Currently under Construction
Sunseed is going through a phase of re-construction. We are closed to internships and new staff applications until the second half of 2022 to focus on updating the infrastructure, the gardens and the community design. If you are interested in being an ESC volunteer at Sunseed and helping the transition, then keep an eye on our website and social media!
 
What is the Transition all about?
In October 2021, the Trustees of the Sunseed Association (who are legally responsible for the project) came to Sunseed for a three day sociocratic meeting in which everybody living in Sunseed was welcome to participate. We gathered in our Dome to re-envision Sunseed together. We would like to distribute the legal responsibilities of Sunseed within the community without creating hierarchies. Furthermore, we decided that our four houses need major infrastructural updates to make them cozy homes again. 

Since next to these big changes, there is little space to give the full educational experience, we are closing for volunteers, interns and new staff applications during this time. This 'transition phase' starts in January and will probably last for about half a year. Keep posted though, old Sunseeders and friends, maybe we will need your support!! 

In any case, we are very excited to open Sunseed's doors again soon with a refreshed spirit of land restoration and education. Probably this will be in the second half of 2022!

What does my contribution cover?

ORGANIC

From Monday to Friday we serve breakfast, snacks and two hot vegetarian meals a day. Food on the weekends is self organised with the use of our supplies. 15-20% of the food comes from our gardens. The rest is bought from local farmers and regional ecological producers.

EDUCATIONAL

Our coordinators offer a range of activities depending on the departments' needs. You can get involved with gardening, eco-maintenance, drylands management and more. You can also take on a personal project if you have a specific skill.

ACCOMODATION &
MAINTENANCE

Your payment covers accommodation in our comfy dormitory, clean bed sheets, the use of natural cosmetics and administration costs. Our houses are maintained in the traditional Andalucian style.

FIXED
COSTS

To provide an educational experience for visitors from around the world we have many hidden costs - rent, insurance, taxes, website hosting, phones, internet, car maintenance, staff reimbursement and more. Your contribution will help us to continue running Sunseed.
