    Hello Adventurous volunteers and travellers.
    My name is Kyle and along with my partner Upeka, we wish to welcome you to our property in the mountains. We are currently on the pathway to creating an ecofriendly space within the Jungle which we hope will help to promote sustainable living for ourselves, the people who will stay with us in the future and the greater community.


    In my last trip to Sri Lanka in April 2019. We had a volunteer staying and working with us, she was very helpful and really enjoyed the experience that came with our project.
    She told me to reach out to people who may also be able to help and experience our project.

    We are looking for people who will be available mid-July to mid-August. In this period, we hope to complete the following tasks.

    *️️️️️️️️Build a 10m x 5m Shed
    *️️️️️️️️Continue to renovate our house on the property
    *️️️️️️️️Clear some terraces so that fruits and vegetables can be planted
    *️Environmental Design and architecture
    *️️️️️️️️Fencing
    *️️️️️️️️Fix the house electrics


    We are looking for people with skills in the following:

    *️️️️️️️️Permaculture
    *️️️️️️️️Gardening and plants
    *️️️️️️️️Construction

    We are also interested in people who are just wanting to have a go and help. Please get in contact with us if you are interested.
    We are very flexible hosts and understand that your time is also important. We offer you a bed and 3 meals a day. All your living expenses are covered.
    We expect people to offer themselves to help for 3-5hours a day for 5 days a week. Although this has no structure and is completely flexible.
    If you would like to know more about the project and the property, please ask via your enquiry. We look forward to hearing from you.
