  • Beschreibung


    On 1.5 ha at an altitude of approx. 1500 m.a.s.l. we grow a vast variety of vegetables, grains, fruit and ornamental plants in line with permaculture principles.

    We are located a 45 minutes drive away from the capital City of Sikkim, Gangtok and a 15 min. drive from old and new Rumtek monasteries. In this rural area many Farmers cultivate Rice on terraced fields, however, we have converted our terraced fields into a permaculture garden. Presently we are expanding perennials, working out details of plantations of additional fruit trees, making a deadwood-hedge-living-fence, introducing a greenhouse and constructing a fishpond.

    Activities Workawayers can engage include mulching, weeding, planting, watering, harvesting, sowing, fertilizing, composting, creating permaculture-features and small habitats, feeding our rabbits and chickens, etc.

    Workawayers are expected to work 5 hours per day on 5 days a week. This allows for time to explore nearby buddhist monasteries, go for a day-trip to Gangtok, etc.

    Our team will gladly assist you in planning activities during off-days.
