    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We will be creating something very unique, literally from the ground up. Our project will focus on creating a preschool using natural building techniques, working with bamboo, all parts of the coconut tree, earthbuilding and rope. As we grow we will be implementing permaculture and regenerative practices to grow our own food and use this model as an educational tool for the children.we interact with the local community on a daily basis, from getting our wood delivered by water buffalo to harvesting coconut sap for coconut sugar production. As part of our social enterprise we will be incorporating local children into our preschool.

  • Help


    We will be needing help in many different areas as we set up, build and create a nature based preschool and permaculture farm in the Phillippines.

    We are mainly looking for a qualified - forest/montessori/waldorf (steiner) school teacher. These positions could be paid depending on length of commitment.

    We will also need help building the forest school/playground implementing natural building techniques using local natural materials.
