  • Description


    Our Eco-village includes an Organic Permaculture Farm, a large Retreat Center which hosts Yoga & Meditation retreats and Permaculture Courses. In 2015 we completed the construction of our new Yoga Wellness Center - which holds regular Yoga & Detox Retreats. We try our best to create a family feeling and provide a congenial environment for yoga & spiritual practice.

  • Help


    Tasks are varied and depend on the season. Our permaculture farm is a work in progress and we are working hard to become more self sufficient and sustainable. During the winter we grow most of our vegetables and throughout the year we are developing an organic permaculture orchard with over 50 varieties of trees. Help in the farm involves planting, harvesting, mulching, weeding, feeding our pig, ducks & chickens, making compost, irrigating and cutting grass etc.
    We need hard working volunteers who can preferably speak some Chinese and have substantial farming experience. Volunteers with carpentry, plumbing, electrical, building experience are especially welcome.

  • Accommodation


    In 2015 we refurbished the volunteers accommodation with hard wood floors and new bathrooms. There are 2 shared bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms with hot water (one for females and one for males). We usually host between 2-3 volunteers in each bedroom and provide sleeping mats, pillows and bedsheets. Please bring your own sleeping bag, if possible. There is also a separate room with open plan kitchenette, bathroom and sitting room with WIFI where volunteers eat their breakfast. All other meals are taken collectively in our retreat center.
