What People Say
Volunteering at MyFarm has been a thrilling experience. As an academic researcher in agriculture, I was excited to find a sustainable farm in The Gambia. There is always something new to learn and MyFarm staff are always eager to teach and try new things. It is an awesome environment where even strangers get treated like family. So if you are innovative, or you desire to be, you like a friendly environment and you want an insight into the future of farming, I recommend MyFarm!Jalil, MyFarm Volunteer
I come to MyFarm periodically. And when i go away from here I miss the place so much. I think there are very few places on the earth that make you feel at home and at peace, as a part of nature. Myfarm is eaxctly that.Evrim, MyFarm Volunteers
