    Accommodation

    In the middle of the country side and rice field, the project is off grid despite proximity of electric network. This is very challenging. There is a good power 220 volts by Solar panel. We provide sleeping space either in bungalows made from earth or tent under shaded on a platform. Mosquito net, mattress and pillow are are provided. Kitchen is shared, there is a fridge and a freezer, drinkable water, shower (no hot water) and toilet and a washing machine. There is bicycle to go to the local market and one tandem (double bicycle) with a trailer. Food are prepared all together or per turn. Vegetarian or vegan are welcome. General cleaning and washing is done collectively, each volunteer is responsible to clean his own sleeping space and maintain it in a good standing. We are a drug and other addiction free zone also alcohol consumption is limited as well as smocking.

    What else ...

    We have a lake with a chill house with a lake where we like to swim and jump. We like to relax in hammock, exchange talks, listen and play music. Almost everyday we go to the local fresh market.
    Around our land there is rice field, country side and less than 10 km mountains. The different village around have pubs, restaurants, fresh markets and there is now a pizzeria in the village. Located only 20 minutes from Chiang Mai, the city of over 300 temples offers great activities, concerts, pubs, cultural events.
    There is daily transportation to Chiang Mai by Song Taew (open mini bus) for half dollar.
