    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Volunteers can take this an enjoyment taking as an experience living at the countryside out of the busy city life. We want you to relax, have fun and just enjoy. It's not a rigid work where you are asked to station at a location, you are encouraged to walk around during work as long as you complete your task.

    Volunteers could also learn about the different species of plantation and pick up gardening skills if you would love to learn more about agro and eco culture.

    We also have a few barn and cages for our livestock, caress them and be their friends as well.

    Guests that come over to our resort are usually in big groups, so, volunteers are encouraged to mingle with the guests anytime of the day, makes friends and just have fun.

    We ask our volunteers to cycle to work (2 min) as it fits with our eco culture, you could however opt to walk to work if you would love to (10 min).

    Volunteers could experience fishing, canoeing and bicycle ride during their period of stay here.
