We've moved to our new land just a year and a half ago near the forest mountains,25 km east of Chiang Mai city. Having lived in the city but traveled a lot, we are now settling down and try to grow our own food, medicinal plants, building wooden houses, making our own cleaning products, etc. Suha is a Turkish pharmacist and Sara is a Thai graphic designer and yoga teacher, learning about Thai herbal medicine. Our son is an energetic 6 year-old boy and our carpenter friend is staying with us at the moment. If you're interested in wooden building, organic farming, Thai cooking, and yoga, you're welcome to stay with us. There are bamboo bungalows and private wooden rooms forour volunteers . Our place is also close to San Kamphaeng Hot Spring, Muang On cave, Crazy Horse rock climbing, etc. We would like to ask for some food ''Donations'' for 3 healty meals from July onwards once the wooden houses are finished and the work is getting easier.Please ask for the amount of food donation becasue our food harvest will depend on the season and of course our success.So for now we cant grow enough food yet as beginners and have to buy from local fresh markets in the surrounding villages,you can also join us during our food shopping..
Our comfortable wooden and bungalow rooms ( mostly private rooms), yoga classes ,limitless wifi ,laundry,3 nice bicycles ,water & other drinks, and a fridge always ready with fruits etc..are free for short term volunteers..And for long term volunteers we provide everything including all 3 meals a day for free too .Because we recieve more efficient help from them.Please ask details for volunteering long term in our farm.
Our target in a year to be totally self sufficient in our small farm about food , water , shelter , medicine , energy etc..We are not a commercial farm so we are not growing large scale if vegetables and fruits to sell outside for money.So we and our volunteers have many free times.A couple of hours help a day is enough for us..
And besides the all work, we enjoy our time with sharing our knowledges&experiences with volunteers together.For a better planet , for more real life, and free & independent future..
