Would you recommend Remineralize the Earth, Towards a Sustainable Agriculture, Forestry and Climate?
I just started volunteering with RTE and already it has been a great experience. The schedule is very flexible, and I got to pursue what I am interested in - mainly, sustainable agriculture development and science writing. What is great is the amount of support RTE provides in honing your skills. I didn't have a lot of experience writing articles and conducting interviews, but Joanna was very helpful and encouraging. Definitely a good organization to volunteer for!
I have been working with Remineralize the Earth (RTE) for one year, and this has been a great experience! Our team is made of committed and professional volunteers, who work towards promoting remineralization and sustainable agriculture. At RTE we adopt a collaborative approach, gathering people from many countries and various backgrounds in order to build exciting projects!
Personally, this opportunity has enabled me to network with researchers, investors and government officials in many areas related to sustainability. I have also developed skills to work with team members exclusively over the computer- given that we are all in different parts of the world, we need to have creative strategies to build cohesion, synergy and engagement.
The work is motivating and inspiring: we spread the knowledge about an effective, affordable and readily available technology that can produce more food, reduce carbon levels in the atmosphere, and save water!
I have been working with Remineralize The Earth for 2.5 years now, and I can honestly say it has been one of my best decisions ever. I joined as a volunteer webmaster, and I couldn’t be happier to put my interests in website design/development while helping a wonderful cause in remineralization at the same time! The atmosphere is always very friendly, the Executive Director is wonderful, and I have picked up so many communication and teamwork skills along the way.
Although I was unfamiliar with remineralization when I first joined, it didn’t take me long for me to immerse myself in their mission of one day making remineralization known and utilized throughout the world. In addition to helping with website maintenance since I started my work with RTE, I have started using remineralization in my family vegetable garden, started initiatives at my high school to promote remineralization, and conducted independent research on it.
This organization has a very devoted administration with a simple yet brilliant vision of how we can solve a major issue in the world today. You get to work with a variety of people and on projects that take place all over the world. If you are willing to commit the time and energy, the executive director is beyond appreciative. She also works with your individual schedule. This is an organization that deserves devoted volunteers.
I would recommend working with Remineralize the Earth to anyone seeking flexible hours and a welcoming work environment. I've gained so many skills while working with this organization and have seen my own understanding of ecology and the Earth's processes grow tremendously. This is an opportunity that honors your abilities, teaches you, and makes you feel good!
