Horticulture Officer: Kenya

Interested in sustainable food production and community gardening? Then head to Kenya to work on a greenhouse program that will improve food security. You will train Red Cross volunteers in basic horticulture, establish crop cycles and trial organic gardening methods.

While they are volunteer roles, we do cover travel, accommodation and living costs, as well as health and security support.
