WWOOFing is a great way to support the mission of TLC.
TLC is located on a large organic farm high in the mountains where it is always springtime. The intention of the farm is to supply fruit, vegetables, eggs and meat for campus as well as income to support TLC. Eventually, the farm will make TLC totally self-sustainabile. As a WWOOFer, you will be helping to provide a college education for those who would not be able to afford it otherwise.
Applicants should be self-motivated, reliable and enjoy hard work. If you apply, you should enjoy the outdoors and understand that you may occasionally have to work in inclement weather. At times the work can be physically demanding. Heavy lifting is normally not required but lots of bending and stooping is often a part of the job. Applicants should have the energy to put in a solid day of work…..and enjoy doing so.
The work would normally be farm work but for those interested in helping in other ways, there is often a need. Those who enjoy teaching, mentoring students and helping them with homework could do that rather than or in addition to farm work. There is often a need for help with construction on campus. Bottom line: there are work opportunities in addition to farming.
WWOOFers are needed year round. Meals are provided on campus from the campus kitchen. Housing is normally in volunteer staff dorms. Outdoor camping is optional. Long term couples can sometimes be provided with a private house. Off campus housing with local families can also be provided for those who prefer an immersion in the local Honduran culture.
Before deciding to come, it is important to realize that the site is extremely remote without public electricity or water. We generate our own with solar and wind and purify our water on campus. There is no TV, limited phone signal and no stores for shopping. For night life or shopping, volunteers go to villages or cities that range from 5 to 35 miles from campus.
As a volunteer, we’d expect you to get to Zambrano which is a short bus ride from Tegucigalpa or a four hour bus ride from San Pedro Sula. Let us know when you expect to arrive in Zambrano and we will plan to meet you there and give you a ride to campus. We can provide you with bus info for getting to Zambrano.
The climate is always springtime. Most nights, a blanket is needed. Some nights, two blankets are needed. High day time temperatures range from about 75 to 85. Night temperatures range from about 55 to 65. Normally, from January to May it is very dry with little or no rain.
