Mondays to Fridays:
6:00am morning routine (animal feeding and cleaning, harvesting, irrigation and preparing breakfast).
Each person is allocated to a new routine each week, which runs from Tuesday through to the following Monday, and we always try to organize so that people get to do a variety of different routines during their stay. Routines are not mandatory at weekends, as people are free to go elsewhere on Saturdays and Sundays, but help in the routines on these mornings is always welcome and much appreciated by the staff!
