  • Description


    We are situated in the village of Lamunin, Tutong district of Brunei. We are easy-going and friendly family running a small garden. The garden is often used for educational purposes by local and international student and other group/tour for various activities as well a place for the nature enthusiast.

    We are also hosting various of activities likely farmer market, farm-to-table events and farm cooking classes and its always something to build or repair.

    The internet access is very limited, we advise you to buy your own sim card if you require internet connection.

    We looking for volunteers who are independent, reliable, energetic and flexible.

    You must have a broad mind for cultural differences.

    Due to current pandemic and movement restrictions in Brunei, we are not able to accommodate workawayers till further notice. Its may take months/year or more [finger crossed]

    Worry not-once the restriction lifted and we love to welcome new family member-we will keep update.

    Till things get better, stay safe and happy travelling

    Currently and on going we are looking for people who are keen to set up e.g. a terrace, a small cottage house, creating a small Permaculture garden, building paths to and from structures, providing some creative ideas (painting, decorating) on how to improve the garden.

    Some tasks can be extremely strenuous while others may be rather sedentary.
