    The WORLDS FIRST ANALOG FOREST; our 17 acre land was built as a demonstration site for growing a forest on barren land in the space of just half a generation. Started in 1983 the place is now a thriving rain forest/food forest. We now serve as a functional location for forest sustainability, conservation education & sustainable tourism potential. Analog forestry systems are now implemented all over the world and it started from the hill country of Sri Lanka. These systems have directly helped create new forest world wide and protect existing forest.

    Here we host learners and vacationers to a unique experience. Be right in the forest at canopy Leven and experience the rainforest sounds. Stand amongst the magnificent jungle trees and learn about the different verities and birds and animals that live amongst them. Here you have the opportunity to learn about the natural word and how we can coexist by gaining an understanding of the Analog Forestry concept.

    WE treat all host and guests as part of the 'family'. The setting is rural and homely and you are sure to experience true Sri Lankan hospitality and amazing healthy foods from our forest garden and organic farm.

    Here there are many projects always running form research, to growing endangered forest species to simple building, organic farming and forest trail work.

    We accept people with different skill sets who have professional sensibility, are motivated and committed to making a positive impact to the planet and the natural environment in which we live.

    Please message us with some information about yourself and your skills, ideas and how you would like to contribute.

    Healthy Living!

    The right candidate will be hosted in a pristine, culturally and ecologically diverse environment. With access to world class yet fast diminishing resources (clean air / clean water / organic food) You will also benefit from 'off the beaten track' cultural experiences with locals.

    You will also gain insights into new science and research, market potentials from this end of the world based on the future we project to the world from work initiated here at Belipola Arboretum.

    There is so much to learn here about the natural world in many different ways, be amongst the passionate and the professionals.

    Learn about organic farming and forest growth - forest ecology.

    Our forest location is calm, peaceful and rejuvenating. It is truly something to experience.

    The area is located between the Tea growing zone and the rich Spice growing south central hills. Ella, Nuwara Eliya and the stunning Horton plains national park are a short drive away and easily accessible. An abundance of birdlife, waterfalls and fascinating temples await.

    Come, join in and experience a natural and healthy way of living.
