    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    our place is in coffee estate in western ghats, our place is rain forest area,our coffee plantation is in tropical plants, we also cultivate pepper, ginger,cardmon our coffee plantations we always take care of our all trees. You will spend time in the countryside.we also have small cottage near fish pond,There is definitely hard physical work some season involved, so if your not prepared to do physical work then this is not a place for you.

    Some jobs might be done together but many are done individually and separately so you'd need to be comfortable working alone or with another Work away traveller. However explanations, demonstrations and group work sessions can allow opportunities for learning information and skills related to organic gardening / farming, permaculture, herbal medicine and sustainable living.

    Good healthy food is supplied to suit your diet and preferences but you would need to be able to cook for yourself some times and make your own meals with food supplied. We do have some group gatherings and share some meals but due to evening work and personal commitments, you need to be OK about spending time alone or with other travellers during the evenings and afternoons.we will provide you seperate kitchen

    trade skills like building, plumbing, electrical, mechanical etc are always needed however anyone else willing and happy to work and help in return for nice food and accommodation in a beautiful rainforest mountain landscape place are welcome to contact us.

    Volunteers can help with the plantation along with a few people working here.Help needed in the fields include planting, pruning, composting, harvesting .at the workshop making things for the farm, innovating projects, eco building,
    value adding fruits , packaging / marketing. occasional art projects depending on how busy it is here.
    Anyone with cheese making , wine making, jam skills are most welcome. handling machines, weed wacking with a machine,

    In our house one of our family members is Ayurveda doctor, we will help you out Ayurveda medicines also
