Take part in agricultural projects abroad on your gap year and gain practical experience within the agricultural field. An alternative to agricultural projects are farming projects, where you could live the life of a farmer and really develop a sense of gratitude for all the hard work that goes into the food we eat and plants around us. Learn organic and ecological agricultural methods to ensure healthy and safe food and other ways to reduce the risk of harming the environment around us.
Day-to-day tasks on agricultural projects may include assisting farmers, harvesting crops or looking after animals. Agricultural projects are usually physically demanding and may require working long days in the heat. You will however have the opportunity to introduce and develop modern sustainable techniques to help local communities and agricultural professionals. You will develop an awareness of how each country’s agricultural policies affect one another and their wider effect on the world.
