    Beschreibung

    My family and I have recently moved to a new house in Phang - nga, Southern Thailand.
    We wish to develop the garden and home using permaculture and organic methods.
    I am originally from Ireland and my wife is from North East Thailand. We have a 4 year old daughter who we will homeschool this year.
    In 2016, we began the food forest project where we had many Workaway volunteers and we would love to have people join us again at our new home.

    We would like to build raised beds, herb spirals, pizza oven etc to develop our own skills and allow others to do the same.

    We hope to get involved in helping the community through river cleaning, english lessons etc.
    Volunteers time would be divided between working at our home and a local school for disadvantaged kids where my wife works. (Farm and garden)
