I'll just throw this wild question out there to everyone...

Would anyone be interested in coming down here to Guatemala and volunteering on the Germplasm Station doing cleanup, pot-ups and planting?

How long could you stay?

What else would/could you do?

(BTW, the flight is about 2 1/2 hours from Miami.)

Wow! Are you kidding?! You post something like that and wonder what us tropical enthusiast will say?!!! This sound like heaven and of course I'd volunteer to come down to Guatemala to help clean up and pot up plants!

P.S I love to write and take pics and could stay probably a week. I'd love to learn more about this clean up project.

I would jump on this if I did not have to goto work. Thank you mangoejoe for posting this exciting and rare opportunity for forum members.

I would love to! For four weeks? July-august?

I studied politics in Germany, so don't expect high knowlegde in biology, but i have muscle, motivation (as spaniards would say) and i'm willing to learn :-)

Do we get free meals which include mangosteen, lychee, mango, longan, rambutan, atemoya, etc? I'm good at planting, repotting, watering, and cleanup fruits....lol. I can only stay for a week because I have to come back and water my tropical trees. :)
