    Description

    We are a farm retreat in Delhi where everything is natural and sustainable. We want to make our place pollution free and be one with nature. That means having organic food, building natural homes etc. In all of that we are looking for 2 volunteers at a time.

    Permaculture is what we use, so anyone who has any knowledge related to this is very welcome! We do many activites throughout the day, try to make it enjoyable for all. A strong need to give back to society by reviving nature to its full glory exist here, so all the people are friendly and kind.

    We have successfully attracted a bee hive of Apis Florea for the first time in history of the farms existence of 30 years!

    We can host maximum 2 people. Preferable with experience of at least some of the requirements listed bellow. Our 2.5 acre land is located in Gadaipur, Farm 20 Gobind Sadan Marg, near Jaunapur Police Booth on Mandi Road. Volunteers will spend most of their time helping in the garden, cooking, caring for animals. Also some web research, doing tasks on the computer and just general help around the house.

    Traditional in belief, modern in mindset.
