                               IMPORTANT NOTES ON JOINING SUNSEED
There are 3 ways to join Sunseed:
1. Short term volunteer - stay for up to 4 weeks; work 25 hours per week minimum, Monday to Friday mornings
2. Long term volunteer or 3. Research volunteer/intern - stay for more than 4 weeks (usually at least 5 weeks);
   work a minimum of 35 hours per week, which includes project/research/apprenticeship work in the afternoons.

Research volunteers/interns: please consult the Volunteer Project Pack on our website. Your coordinator will
agree your work programme before your arrival at the project

To join us as a Volunteer:

    i.   Send us the Booking Form with Sections 1 and 2 completed
    ii.  We will email you to confirm your booking dates and fees, request a 100€ deposit, and send you Travel
         and Essential information detailing directions to Sunseed and what to bring
    iii. Once you have paid your 100€ deposit you can book your travel
    iv. The balance of your payment (in Euros) for the length of your stay will be required on the first Tuesday
         after your arrival at Sunseed

If you are 16 or 17 years old please include a parent/guardian’s consent and reference as to your maturity to visit
Sunseed.

Minimum stay:     The minimum stay is two weeks; in exceptional circumstances and subject to availability you may be able to
                  visit for only one week – the donation for one week only is 150€

Insurance:        All volunteers from EU Countries must bring a European Health Insurance Card or equivalent; non-EU
                  residents must take out personal medical insurance in case medical assistance is required. We also advise
                  all volunteers to take out travel insurance to cover your stay at Sunseed.

Disabilities:     There are many steps and climbs. We will do all we can to provide facilities for everyone but sufficient mobility
                  is essential to join fully. (With a wheelchair you would need a full-time helper). If in doubt please ask. Visitors
                  such as senior citizens or those recovering from illness may be unable to work very much, but there is always
                  light work. Please ask. Concessions apply for people in receipt of disability allowance.

Children:         16-17 year olds need their guardian’s consent and a reference about their maturity. Those under 16 need a
                  parent/guardian to accompany them. The site can be dangerous for children due to some unfenced terraces,
                  etc. so parents/guardians are responsible for their children’s safety.

Reductions:       Children qualify for discounts. Children aged 0-4 come for free; 5-9s donate one-third guardian’s rate; 10-15s
                  donate two-thirds guardian rate.

Timing:           It is best to arrive in daylight hours to allow for making the bus connections to Sorbas.

Arrival:          Arrival days are Monday or Tuesday. If you can't make these days, please contact us.

Deposit:          A 100€ deposit is required to reserve your place as a volunteer. This is refundable (less 20€ admin fee) up to
                  two weeks prior to your arrival.

Refunds:          If after arrival volunteers decide to depart prior to their departure date, Sunseed will retain 20% of the
                  donation.

Internet:         Internet connection via satellite is available at Sunseed. The service is only for checking personal email,
