  • Description


    Garden of Tranquility

    We are a family of 3 interested in being self-sustainable, it is a process we are working towards. We are also involved in community development and the volunteer network in Thailand. We try to work together with different people with similar objectives. We work with the surrounding schools and children to expose them to volunteer and environmental work.

    We live on a coconut and banana plantation in houses we built ourselves out of mud bricks.
    We like to cook vegetarian and growing our own food. We would like to build a mud meditation hall , more vegetable garden and plant more tree in the future.

    Our garden is away from the village about 2 km that makes our garden so quiet and peaceful moment to practice your inner work like Yoga Gigong And etc . We also have library in the garden for our visitor. To enjoy reading.
