    Hello workawayers!!

    I live in the picturesque, kerinci valley with my family.

    I have two projects at the moment.

    My first project is the seed project! I need help to create a greenhouse out the back my house. The aim is to create seeds for all different produce to distribute to the local farmers. This will help create new work for farmers when their crops aren't in season so they are able to sell their produce all year round.

    The other project is turning my home into a hostel/ home stay.
    I have been building this place with volunteers for about a year now and I love all the different creative input I have got from my volunteers.

    It's important to me that you enjoy my place! When we get spare time I can show some of Kerinci's beauty. It has a lot to offer! From waterfalls, to lakes , historic caves, local markets, cinnamon coffee tea plantations ( the largest tea and cinnamon burmanii plantation in the world ) and so much more.
    Lots of places here are still completely untouched. Come and see for yourself.
