    Description

    We are planning to transform our 4acres farm to a self sustained, organic and free from chemicals either fertilizer or pesticide. We also in the middle of building a few chalets from bamboo. We very much welcome anyone who are willing to help us.

    Our place is situated in the state of Pahang called Janda Baik. It's in a mountain region which formed the backbone of Malaysia, separating the east shore and the west shore. Our farm is at the edge of a tropical Jungle, If you would love to experience the exotic flora and fauna then this is one of the place for you in Malaysia. There is a river that run through our land.

    Here is the schedule of the daily program :-
    7.15 am – 8.15 am - Breakfast
    8.30 am – 12 noon - Maintenance
    work & short term projects
    12 noon – 1.00 pm - Lunch
    5.00 pm- 5.30 pm Adhoc
    6.00 pm – 7.00 pm - Dinner

    We work 5 days/week and public holiday is an off day, others is subject for discussion.

    We have cats, dogs and not to mention plenty of chickens, a pond of tilapia fish and we grow our own vegetables and local fruits.

    Food and lodging is free of charge, that's the least we can do for you in return for your help around the farm and the company you guys provide.

    For lodging, we provide 3 rooms (2 persons per room) and two bathrooms/ toilet. Personal hygiene is very important when living in a community.

    We practice social integration through understanding, tolerance and respect for others. Hey nobody is perfect! Anyway we hope you will have a pleasant and enjoyable experience with us that will last for the rest of your life.
