Area:We run an affordable English school in Makassar, South Sulawesi, Indonesia. It's located in the city of Makassar, near from universities and not it's not far from airport, harbour, and bus station. So far we have 2 projects. First is the affordable English school and second is teaching in the orphanage for free. Actually we still have one more project which is teaching on the island but we postponed it for a while because of some reasons. Our main ideas are to give an oppurtunity to children/students to meet, talk, and share with foreigners and to teach other subjects through english such as environmental awareness, permaculture, culture, cooking, etc. We also have some fun activities with the students like karaoke, and trip to some nice places around Makassar on the weekend so u will always feel like holiday!
Area: Northern coastalI call what I am doing 'anagriculture'. It is about discovering how to grow food as a part of the natural cycles of nature, and restoring them in the process. This means that I am simultaneously trying to regenerate the local natural forest while growing fruit and vegetables in the same location. It is an odyssey of discovery in all of ecology, farming and human nature, and involves re-inventing almost every aspect and area of life. The farm has no buildings, no electricity, no toilets, no waste disposal. I live a moneyless, transportless lifestyle. All food is either grown, gathered or gleaned. Diet is 90%+ organic (sometimes I glean from non-organic neighbors). I usually do not cook, just eat everything raw as is. You can cook on a wood fire if you wish, pots are available. You are invited to come and be part of this fascinating journey. The approach here goes beyond commonly practiced farming techniques such as permaculture and natural farming. Here food production is indistiguishable from the regeneration of natural native forest. The cultivated plants and the wild plants grow together in harmony and the love and respect shown for the soil is returned as amazingly tasty food. Life here works differently from elsewhere and much is dictated by the natural environment. There is no artificial lighting, so sometimes work is before dawn when it is cool and there is a morning moon, sometimes during the day when a cool breeze is blowing. Everything goes with a natural ebb and flow - going by instinct and feeling and not forcing yourself into an artificial schedule. Here there is no mask wearing and no pretending. You can just be who you are and what you are and be real and honest about it. It may take a bit of getting used to - but there is no point in lying to the trees - they see right through us :) This is not wannabee ecology, this is the real thing. Here you don't have a small ecological footprint, your footprints are a part of nature. When you sleep and walk you break up the dead leaves and plants ready for recycling, urination and defecation are in carefully chosen locations where they have optimum value for the soil and contained seeds can germinate. The wild animals communicate with you and become accustomed to your presence. Nature becomes your greatest assistant and friend. Up until now the place has been "guys only" and the place runs accordingly. It may thus be unsuitable for females, at least the more cultured types, although if you think you can hack it and want to come with a friend or a spouse, you are welcome. Sometimes local children come to join in and a summer day-camp takes place here during the school holidays. I am a bit of a hermit so need a minimum of two volunteers at any time to keep each other company.
Area: We have our headquarters, including our new learning centre, in the village of Pengosekan on the outskirts of Ubud, in Bali, Indonesia.We live by an old Balinese philosophy for sustainable living which refers to three paths to life balance, happiness and well-being - maintaining harmony with your fellow human beings, maintaining harmony with your god, and maintaining harmony with nature. We Balinese endeavour to live by these life principles in a complex belief system that is rooted in our religion – Agama Hindu Dharma – that has evolved from the ancient Indian Hindu religion, from Buddhism and from pre-existing animist beliefs, including ancestor worship. Our Foundation is reinvigorating the philosophy of harmony with nature, humanity, and divinity through hands-on environmental education and volunteer programs based on sustainability and permaculture principles.
