  • Beschreibung



    We are Bibe and Sam, a Filipina/French couple. We live beside a river, at 10 minutes walk from the beach, just a few hours by bus from Manila.

    Me, Sam from France used to travel for 4 years and using work away as a volunteer. In 2018, I decided to quit my job as engineer to travel the world and learn different skills, cultures and go back the basics: the nature. I wanted to learn how to build, how to grow food just with my two hands and using natural materials and ancestral technics.

    My travels bring me to the Philippines, and i felt in love with that place, this little paradise. Where I met Bibe my Filipina girlfriend.
    Then the Covid came, everything stoped for a while. We decided to use that opportunity to build our small bamboo house in a middle of the jungle. We started to clean the jungle, and slowly build our dream house.

    Now, our dream is to be sustainable, eating healthy food, and enjoy our simple lifestyle and common passion for the surf.

    It’s time for us to open our place for volunteer to welcome you as some host used to welcome me when i was traveling. We wants to share our dream, our small paradise to others and offer the opportunity to experience alternative lifestyle.

    For now, we are just focus on improving our place, still some constructions to do, to develop our food garden, to improve our life here. But we got many dreams for the futur, we would like to help our community, organizing differents activities for the children, show them organic farming, music or art.

    Each one makes a difference, everyone can be inspiring and meaningful..

    As we are trying to be sustainable, we mostly need help with our little garden and to improve our place with maintenance and building new constructions. As long as the imagination goes, with a place like this, everything is possible, just creativity and love. We will try to find together task to do to make your time here as interesting as possible.

    We will ask 4h to 5h help every day, 5 day a week then you can have 2 day off. We will provide food for your working day, but it's good if you can help us with the food during your day off :)

    We will need help also to clean our place, feed our lovely dogs and cats and water the plants.

    Here is some of the improvments in progress where you could help us :
    - help in our garden and nursery (seedling, planting, pruning, etc..)
    - Some paint job in our house
    - build a new traditional bamboo bridge
    - build some small hut, outdoor table & chair
    - build some pathway made of stone and clay
    - art decoration
    - etc.

    If you are interrested to organize some activities with the kids of the community like art activities, music, or english lesson we can make it happen :)

    We will usually work all together and exchange our knowledge and fun !
    Cultural exchanges are highly valued here in the village, so foreigners are always greeted with a warm welcome as long as they respect the community :)
