    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    It is a perfect place to learn about the Bidayuh culture and local food (Liza is a chef by profession and cook delicious food made from wild ingredients). The fact that we are surrounded by rainforest makes it also a perfect place to experience a life in the jungle.

  • Help


    The farm is in constant need of maintenance (weeding and pruning) and when we got guests we also need help with cleaning, helping out in the house and entertain our charming girls(if we are busy). Because of our remote location we also need some help with bringing in supplies now and then.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Because of our remote location our volunteers won't be able to go anywhere else when staying with us. But from previous experience that has never been a problem. Volunteers and our guests normally just love kicking back at our big balcony overlooking the jungle and listening to the sounds. You can also walk around in the nearby forest and swim in the river.
