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.

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
