  • Description


    Hello.. mixed couple indo german having farm besides leuser national park. Faraway from everything. The reason why we have this farm because we want people to stop cutting the jungle and stop planting palm oil also we want to teach local how important our jungle for the world. In our place if you are lucky you might be able to see wild orang utan, Thomas monkey and lots of wild animals which you never seen before. At the moment we are busy with coffe plants also replanting trees. I'm maria( Indonesian) and my husband Martin (German) we both trying to protect the jungle but we need help for that.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn a multi cultural life because I live with Javanese but I am a karonese part of bataknese tribe. Here people still live in simple way. But na ya... the last village is 6 km away from my farm. And everyday I mostly meet birds and insects, orang utan if I'm lucky. We and my husband trying to protect the national park (leuser national park) I know its sounds impossible but I believe oneday locals will learn how important the jungle for the world.
