Organic gardening and forestry activities in Solheimar Eco-village in Iceland

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: CADIP

Sólheimar, Iceland's first and only eco-village, is located in southwest Iceland, 80 kilometres (50 miles) east of Reykjavík. The heart of the Sólheimar ideology is to give all individuals a fair chance and to maximize their potential. By focusing on individuals' abilities instead of their limitations, Sólheimar aims to create the space for each resident to take every opportunity that arises for each person to grow and develop. Versatility is the strength of Sólheimar so people with special needs that reside here will always be the center of the community. This works through the idea of reverse integration: those without special needs adapt to the abilities of those who do, they can work together to make their community an equal and sustainable one. The foundation of the ideology of Sólheimar derives from the visions and lifework of Sesselja herself.

Sólheimar is a pioneer in practicing organic farming. In Sólheimar, there is an organically certified greenhouse, forestry, and arboretum. Other environmentally-friendly projects in Sólheimar include geothermal energy and recycling.

The main work in this project will be in the forestry, called Ölur, and also in the greenhouses, which are called Sunna. Volunteers will work in the greenhouses, planting and harvesting vegetables, weed control and sometimes gardening. The work may also include painting or fixing things around the property. During the winter, volunteers will help remove the snow and keep the walkways clear.
