    Description

    Hello to volunteers planning to come to the Farm Project!

    The project is an upcoming organic farm, a creative platform for learning by experience, a center for ecological awareness, and a space for cherishing Mother Earth. It is an attempt to demonstrate sustainable living in practice, to develop a way of growing food with a combination of ecological understanding and indigenous knowledge, and to bring people together for an exchange of ideas and practices that ensure sustainability and well-being.
    We believe in a holistic mode of learning that promotes understanding and cherishing our place as a part of the greater Earth Community of soil, water, air, plants, animals, forests, and all life forms and peoples.

    We love to see new smiling faces at the farm and everyone interested in farming, living off-grid and community based is more than welcome here. We thank you for your cooperation in helping us make the farm the lovely place that it is.

    Please note that volunteers contribute 350 rupees a day for food, accommodation and as a contribution to farm expenses. Also, we are a non-smoking, non-drinking, vegetarian farm.

    The suggested minimum stay for short term volunteers is 16 days, a day each for arrival and departure and 14 days for farm work.


    LOCATION: The farm is about four kilometers away from the nearest roadhead in Dogaon, a small settlement with a few roadside shops and teastalls, located on the Haldwani-Nainital road. Our nearest rail head is Kathgodam and Haldwani is our nearest city, 26 km away.


    With love & hugs from all of us at the Himalayan Farm family, hope to see you here soon!

    Help

    We have a variety of projects going on and each volunteer is welcome to choose work that suits their skills and interests as long as the work is of benefit to the farm. Farm related chores include weeding, planting, preparing compost, spreading compost, mulching, trench digging for water management, and much more! We also have a lot of work around the living area that can be done. We work hard but the work comes from our hearts and enjoy the effort!

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    The accommodation consists of a 100 year old traditional farm house which now has new floors and roofing - it is fairly basic, consisting of two dorms where we sleep on matrasses on the floor. Additionally we have one common room and a kitchen.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are particularly keen on long term volunteers who have experience of working on a farm/ permaculture or low impact building or have carpentry experience and alternative sustainable technology knowledge.

    An interest in farming and willingness to work in a community with cheer is more than enough for us to welcome you with open arms.

    Our philosophy is to spread love, love and love and share the bounties from the garden / farm with one and all. Happy plants, healthy food, healthy and fun filled volunteers.

    Why does workaway.info allow listings of hosts who charge money?

    In developing countries (Where most hosts are involved in charity work or community development) some of our hosts may ask for a small donation to help the host family or charity (often less then 5 dollars per day) Workaway will allow this listing when the donation goes directly to the family or charity and is just to cover the cost of the volunteer‘s stay.  (This will be clearly marked on the host listing).
    We will strictly not allow listings posted by agents, “middle men” or projects who we feel are looking to profit from a volunteers stay.
