// Project Bona Fide is a non-profit organization working toward sustaining culture through organic agriculture, community correlated outreach, and re-forestation projects on the island of Ometepe in Nicaragua. Project Bona Fide has been created out of a need to support rural Nicaraguan farming communities so that they may gain self-empowerment and economic stability. In addition to offering farmers financial and technical support toward gaining international organic certification, Project Bona Fide focuses on establishing much needed fair trade export market* opportunities, preserving natural environments, and focusing on local health and nutrition projects.
Project Bona Fide and its pilot farm, Finca Bona Fide are dedicated to creating organic cooperatives and establishing fair trade markets that directly benefit the farming community.
Finca Bona Fide is a 43-acre educational permaculture farm in rural southwest Nicaragua being developed as a small farm research/training center for regenerative agriculture and land management.
// Volunteers are one of the backbones that support Project Bona Fide. The scale of the project and the growth of the farm will evolve as our volunteer program grows. Volunteers support a variety of projects including; natural building, tree propagation, gardening, irrigation, cooking, planting and community projects with the local community.
We accept volunteers through direct inquiry via our website. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Project Bona Fide asks international volunteers to cover room and board plus an additional $3 a day for the Farm Fund, totaling $10 a day. Those staying for a month or more are asked to just cover room and board at $200 USD per month.
Long term internships are also available. Please see our website at http://www.projectbonafide.com/volunteer.html for more information.
