    Come to help us do farming on the "death land" in Cu Chi Tunnel, right at the outskirt of Saigon with real local people.

    Living in HCMC or Saigon and working for a large IT company but I do love working in the farm with my mom and family that urges me to come back to the countryside on weekends. All my friends also loving coming along with me but their passion is just FOOD. No doubt they love all the food made by my mom and sisters with all the stuffs we pick up in the garden. At the moment I have guests (friends of my friends and friends.....) to come almost every weekend to enjoy the food and the sightseeing in the countryside and working in the farm. Furthermore, I would need people stay longer to help us to make the farm more fruitful and the isolated farm and village to be our lovely home to escape the noisy in the city

Mom loves gardening and she has a farm with full of pomelo, banana, papaya, coconut and other seasonal fruits and vegetable. It was known as the "death land" during the war and we still need to do a lot of things to make the land more green and fruitful and life more joyful.

Building a cottage house is also another project on planning and we would need your help soon.
