We welcome volunteers with an interest in tropical agriculture, natural building and permaculture or Thai culture. We are learning to live an uncomplicated and mindful life in harmony with nature, stepping as lightly as we can.
We offer a rare opportunity to combine a hands-on but relaxed experience of tropical agriculture, developed along natural farming principles, with full immersion in a small farming community, in a very scenic setting with forests and waterfalls on the doorstep.
Working together with us, volunteers get repeated hands-on experience of many of the basic aspects of natural farming and self reliance, including composting, planting, pruning, seed saving, nursery management, animal care, basic hand tool skills, water management, garden design, food preservation etc. Every week we take a day off together to explore the local area, go for a swim, a walk in the forest etc.
We don’t feature on volunteering or work exchange internet platforms, this allows us to connect especially with people with a genuine interest in this type of activities. Due to the small number of volunteers at the farm, this is more like a family home stay and a genuine interest in food growing and sustainable living is helpful to make the most of the time here. We give priority to stays of four weeks or more, we ask for a contribution of 1500B per week.
We offer comfortable accommodation in a large Thai style house, three vegetarian meals a day with rice, vegetables and fruit coming mainly from the garden, and the opportunity to experience the easy rhythm of Thai rural life and of the surrounding tropical rainforest.
