    Description

    Would you like to do something for the planet?

    we are looking for easygoing, non-smokers and love nature volunteers from around the world

    ( please kindly read until the end before apply )

    welcome you all to help build and develop our eco-project
    I have lived in the UK for nearly 6 years, and have moved back to Kalasin Thailand.
    since December 2016

    we tried so hard to raise the money to build this international Eco-village
    started build this place since January 2017 by volunteers from local and around the world
    (but some serious structure we paid professionals )
    we hope to do something for nature as well as encourage people and the younger generation to aware more about the environment
    So we need a lot of help and support with preparing our organic farm, making mud bricks, painting, looking after the trees and vegetables and cook together as well as make the village looks nice such as using recycled materials decorate the surrounding area and sometimes help less fortunate people in the community. While doing those eco activities local students and others local people will be able to practice their English naturally while working with you.

    We get up early with a bit of exercise the middle of the rice field
    a bit mindfulness meditation and basic yoga every morning
    then watering the plants and vegtables
    and after that we do not have any exact routine
    ( if you prefer clear plans or routine this place may not suite you.
    because We prerfer easygoing or flexible people who can adapt themself with different things )
    we will be doing serval different things to look after and develop our place together such as painting, building, fixing things, gardening depends on which seasons you get here and we soon to have coffeeshop and homestay so we will be woking on that too

    so far we only have students join us sometimes not all the time
    when we have students we run like a fun eco English camp with lot of games, cooking walking in the ricefield learn how to live with nature

    we have found that it can be pointless when people learn the language but have no chance to practise in daily life
    most of them end up forget what they've learned
    We simply want to help local students who can not afford to practise English in an expensive international school or abroad to have an opportunity to practise English with international people
    and we also hope them to engage themselves more with nature rather than spend too much time on technology

    we are not making this project for profit we wish to pay respect to the environment and support people who wish to improve their English
    we hope to have coffeeshop and some of our huts can become and eco homestay soon may be start early 2020
    so can earn a bit of money to sustain the project if it goes well we can save some money the run an English camp for poor children etc...

    we do not want you to feel like you come here to work for us
    please come here because you want to do something for nature and the younger generation

    accommodations provided (the private huts along the pond )
    we are now registered not for profit organization Registered Foundation number 5/2561 Kalasin Thailand
    we suggested all volunteers help us donate for the food and basic things. By just put in the donation box once a week
    for the food, we cook together most of the time and eat out sometimes ( visiting local community )

    If you believe this idea great and meaningful and wish to be part of our village
    please come and develop the eco-village together

    Smoking and drinking alcohol are strictly prohibited
    if you are non-smokers and non-alcoholism.
    not afraid of getting dirty and love what has been said above
    Hope to see you soon :)

    Ps. after we agree
    Please prepare personal water bottle, fit flops or sandals and spray or cream to prevent mosquito
    Would be great !!!

    All the best
