We live in the beautiful countryside of the southern region of Thailand. (Songkhla province). We owned rubber farm and have an organic vegetable garden around the house. We have bananas, papaya and fresh organic from the garden. We try to live sustainably. I also picked vegetables from the garden and sell our products to the local market.

    Help

    Ideally I would like my helper(s) to devide their time between helping me in the house and garden and helping 5 -12 year old students learn English at the local school where my husband works. Also, learn the language to my 11 years old son as well. At the school, volunteers will be assisting the teachers.
    However, depending on your skills/interests and the time of year you are here, I am happy for you to only help at home or the school. Helpers who enjoy gardening and/or teaching would be suitable candidates for this exchange.
