  • Description


    This place consists of local organic farmers and people who are eco-friendly and recycle as much as we can in order to go green. We have a  beautiful  farm where we use  mulch  to grow vegetables. Basically we follow permaculture principles and do not use store bought fertilizers. We use a lot of food waste, such as eggshells, vegetables and soy bean powder from our local do-fu store.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    It will be very meaningful and rewarding to join us, we like to think of teamwork rather than work. We produce very energetic vegetables and deliver to local buyers ! The reason we say “energetic” vegetables, ,is because we reduce the transportation distance from sellers to buyers. In addition, most of our vegetables are picked in the morning and buyers can  receive  them by that afternoon. We do not use ANY new plastic bags in the process . We realize that we are a tiny , very tiny piece of the big picture . However , we want  to  make every piece important in order to make tomorrow greener!

    You will stay in a Taiwanese traditional style house at our farm. It was built with mud, so it will be a bit chilly at the night. The house has 2 showers, 2 bathrooms  and 2 big open spaces to sleep with mosquito nets. Each open space is good for 4 people. No internet service . 5 minutes walk to bus stop ,so it is easy to access the city!  There is a convenience store within walking distance. We have laundry machine . While you help us in the farm, meals (breakfast and lunch ) will be provided! You have to prepare your own food, while it is not not working days! You are welcome to use our kitchen!
