We are looking for volunteers to help us achieve our goals and with whom we can exchange ideas, share knowledge, research and learn.

    We provide a friendly environment to contribute, learn and research farming. There are plenty of chances to contribute and share your skills in interesting development projects around the farm.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    You will work with local Nepalese people and live closely with us during your stay. There are many opportunities to learn;

    Learn through experience! Get stuck in with practical work led by the Nepali members of the Farm’s family. Language may be limited but by watching how we work, doing it yourself, and communicating in other ways you can connect to the team and practice lots of skills.

    Get an insight into the lifestyle of rural Nepali villages and people, learning some Nepali language from the team and exploring the local area.

    Read all about farming and Nepal by borrowing books from our little library!

    You will see our organic methods for increasing soil fertility and field management, see how coffee is made from seed to roast, learn how to harvest and process the different seasonal crops – such as hibiscus and nepali hog plum (lapsi).

    Understand more about the culture and landscape through trekking and attending local festivities on your days off. You can visit a monastery, stupa, the local town and – if the weather is right – get a view of the “White Mountains”. Langtang range and Shisapangma.
