Area: Central Luzon, 6hrs north of ManilaCome and join us and expand your Philippine experience in a unique way. We're a whole life education center based around an organic farm with 99% of our guests coming from overseas. . The property right now is 1.2 hectares with plans to grow this to 3 hectares over the next 3 years. The farm's focus is education. From mid 2014 we will start running courses on natural health, organic gardening, bio farming, entrepreneurship, integrated spiritually, whole life living and more. The Farm was founded in late 2012. Previously it was a traditional rural rice farm. Rice is still grown on the property - we have five rice paddies and one large sloping field and a large vegi garden. Development of the property began in mid 2013 and is ongoing with plans for a full water recycling system using reeds, bio gas production from the sewerage, swimming pool, fish farm, underground water tanks and full soil management and recovery systems. We welcome guests from all countries but we ask that you stay for a minimum of 7 days. This is so that we have the time to get to know you and make your stay a great experience for you and for us. We are converting the farm over to organic agriculture. No chemicals or inorganic fertilizers are used on the farm since we purchased the property. We are now using worm farming, nitrifying weed vines and Kardis (pigeon pea) to regenerate the soil. Our focus is to create a magic space where people can come from around the world and connect to nature and themselves and learn new ways of living life with ease, abundance, simplicity and fun. We need help with building - garden creation, weeding, planting, tree care, harvesting, planting trees, composting and general property care and a little child care some times. Your hosts are David (New Zealander) and Carol (Filipina) with our little Kyra who is one and a half years old right now. We can accommodate around seven people but we normally have just 3 or 4 guests at a time. Accommodation is in our shared guest room, garden cobbo and camping if good weather. All spaces have power, fans and mattresses. We will start work on completing the guest rooms in the ground floor of the house soon which will include a large space for guests to relax in away from the main house. Looking forward to seeing you very soon :) David, Carol and Little Kyra
