  • Description

    Description

    We are a team of individuals passionate about sustainable living.

    Inspired by permaculture and Transition Towns, we teach skills and empower communities to implement their own projects. We run workshops, host community meetings and facilitate design and systems thinking to come up with solutions to local problems. We also design and build gardens and farms as well as programs e.g. recycling, advocacy.

    For the coming months we are focused on implementing our community and school organic garden programs. We're looking for volunteers who care about the planet we live on and believe in grassroots change.

    Our office is based in Kuala Lumpur where work primarily with urban individuals and communities.
