    Description

    Hello there, we have started an organic farm project in September 2015. The long term objective is to become a learning center for all visitors and volunteers in order for them to learn basic techniques on sustainable farming. We support the Permaculture movement and demonstrate many techniques on site.

    We grow food organically, create a network of local organic grower and prepare many different natural homemade products such as jams, pastes, syrups, soaps. We provide farmer baskets to our members and organize regular workshops for anyone to learn about many different kind of DIY techniques. Ideally we also want to become a local organic seed bank.

    Since December 2015 we've received more than 40 volunteers here and it was a great experience! So much good energy and discussions were going around. Together we've accomplished a lot and we would like to thank you for that. The project now is at a turning point and we are sorry to announce we need to take a break with the Volunteer Program until further notice.

    In the meantime if you stop in Phuket during your trip, have a good experience (i.e. gardening, cooking, natural building, video making, website design, ... ) and are able to give a hand during the day feel free to contact us and we will see what we can do.

    Thanks a lot for your time, you really helped us to grow ! :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a non-touristic area surrounded by national parks in the middle of the island. Volunteers will interact with friendly local people everyday. Besides the many permaculture and sustainable techniques you will learn at the garden we can also give you some basic lessons in thai language.
