  • Description

    Description

    Nestled within the foothills in the Kampot countryside. Our place is a 10sq km patch of land amongst beautiful jungle. With the aim of starting an eco village based around sustainable living, using  the materials and energy sources that are found in abundance, alongside salvaged materials, we are looking for people to help in variety of different areas. From construction and landscaping, to cooking and teaching, our village will need everything and everyone from all backgrounds with every skill-set imaginable in order to make the village as self-reliant as possible.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cambodia has a vast and rich culture, with Kampot being one of my favourite cities in the whole country. Local attractions include the pepper farms and secret lake, Bokor mountain and its water falls, with Kep town not so far away down the coast with the local crab market and beach. With so much to learn from these wonderful people, it's no wonder some of us just cant help but stay forever. One of the main reasons i stayed here was the community these people share, something i have never seen back home. Here, i eat rice with my neighbors every day.. at home i do not even know my neighbors names. This place and these people have taught me so much, and some of the best friends i've made, can't speak a word of english

    Building work using salvaged materials such as tyres, sandbags, glass bottles, shipping containers, and also fast growing, sustainable natural resources such as bamboo.

    Tree planting, finding saplings and landscaping the area, taking cutting from existing fruit trees and endangered species and making these a central part of the site. Permaculture farming.

    Setting up energy systems to harness the sources found naturally, ie- hydroelectric & solar power.

    All things artsy - from paintings to sculptures, the finishing touches are always the most fun
