    We have a mini-Retreat Center cum small organic garden (3/4 acre) where we grow a variety of vegetables that we use for our weekend meditation/yoga programs and our in-house members. We need help to plant, nurture and harvest the vegetables, herbs and (a few) fruits. We especially welcome volunteers who are hard working, punctual, considerate of others, can clean up after themselves and are ready to embrace a farmer's lifestyle, i.e. early to bed and early to rise.
    We welcome volunteers that have some skills that could be useful for our farm and community. This includes: permaculture, carpentry, food processing, videography, social media skills and general maintenance skills (someone who is good with their hands).
    Some of the tasks include: weeding, planting, harvesting; video filming and editing, web page management, carpentry, household repairs, cooking meals on a rotation basis; a weekly cleaning session; using the machines to bake bread and yoghurt; cleaning up after meals.
    If you have an old set of clothes for garden work you can bring them along; otherwise choose from what we have; other garden accessories like boots, gloves, sun hat, etc we will provide.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are nearby Jeonju city--the home of bibimbap (Korean version of sushi) and former spiritual capital of Baekje Kingdom; it is located in the southwest part of South Korea; it is famous for the Jeonju Hanok Village- a traditional-style village in the heart of Jeonju, housing over 800 traditional "hanok" style buildings. It contains many traditional tea shops, souvenir shops, and restaurants.
    There is a man-made lake nearby the farm and a water reservoir with a small man-made waterfall with soothing sounds. Local buses connect our farm with Jeonju and other cities in Jeollabuk Province. There is a bus service twice a day from Seoul to the nearest town called Bongdong.
    We encourage you to get a Korean SIM card on arrival at airport or rent a wifi lunch box for the duration of your stay. It's probably cheaper to invest in a wifi connection than to take a taxi from Jeonju to our farm! It's not so easy to come to our place unassisted and we may not always be free to help you. But with wifi connectivity it is easier to direct you with a minimum of hassles.
