  • Help

    Help

    We need help with managing our space alongside our local team. This will involve help with hosting of events and activites, managing a schedule for our guest chefs and assisting them where necessary (shopping, etc). There is also the opportunity to conduct or assist in Yoga, meditation and other workshops depending on your interest/skills.

    Additionally, we also need your help to set-up a small fair trade health food store that we plan to create in order to help sustain our project. There is also an opportunity to learn how to make Kombucha, ginger beers, seed butters & more. With your help, we would like to come up with a wider range of natural products that we can make and package either in our space or by involving local people from the village.

    We get a lot of participation from other travellers who use our space and help is always at hand. We prefer shanti, open minded & conscious people.
