Area: Sarawak, BorneoA new homestay project set amongst 300 hectares of stunning Borneo (Sarawak) rainforest. Your hosts David and Jackie are setting up this unique wildlife conservation concept and aim to be open early 2015 but need lots of help right now. The family home is already built and sits on top of a hill with lovely views of the forest and hills in the distance - at 650 m or nearly 2000 ft in altitude the heat and cooling winds make it a perfect temperature for the tropics. Average night time temperature is 22 C. David has a multinational background and worked overseas all his life, and his wife Jackie is originally from the local village but grew up in Kuala Lumpur. You will be made to feel most welcome not just by the owners but also three dogs, two cats and a Sambar deer. Wake up to the sounds of the nearby gibbons and hornbills, cool off in the nearby rivers, this is a remote but memorable and authentic opportunity to assist in a fulfilling way. Leki-Lu is 2 hours from the town of Lawas in Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo. Lawas is easily reached by bus, boat and plane - see additional info below. We do not yet have internet but do have and sattelite phone for emergencies only.
Area: West of Otavalo.We are a family of three having recently settled in Ecuador after livng in the Southwest of The USA for 15 years. I am(Keith) English and my wife(Marisol) is Ecuadorian and we have a 3 year old daughter Yakina. One year ago we bought a Farm to the west of Otavalo a famous artesan town in the highlands of Ecuador north of Quito. We are starting to create an Organic (possibly Biodynamic) Farm based around the cash crops of Coffee and Sugar Cane, but intend to grow the broadest range of food and plants as possible. We are currently all Vegans/Vegetarians. The Farm has a main house and 2 smaller guest houses all in need of renovation, but all the basic services are in place and the accommodation is comfortable. We have even recently installed internet. To date we are about halfway through the renovation of one building and have added another we have built from scratch........but there is still a lot to do! One year into the project and we have extensive food gardens that are producing an abundance of food and require constant maintenance........planting weeding and harvesting. We have been involved in farming and natural building for many years in the States and ultimately aim to use all our experience and knowledge to help create a truly sustainable working Farm that will be able to support several families in the future. We would welcome any help with both the building and farming projects we have underway. The Farm covers 380acres starting at 5900 ft around the farmhouses which are surrounded by a river and 2 creeks, all the way up the mountain passing several waterfalls on the way. The beauty of the location cannot be overstated! We are discovering new aspects of the Farm all the time, developing new trails all over the property. The most recent to a waterfall about a 20 min walk from the Farmhouse. The Farm sits in an area of cloud forest which houses one of the most biodiverse areas on the planet. Although the Farm is quite remote, it is less than a 2hr direct bus ride from Otavalo and we have access to the Farm via a rough but passable road that deadends at the Farm. If this sounds of interest please contact us and we can give you more up to the minute information about the projects currently underway. Thanks Keith
