    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 )

    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 have started building an international Eco-village for about 2 years and we need a lot of help with preparing land for our organic farm, making mud bricks, painting huts and wall, looking after the trees and vegetables and cook 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

    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

    if you like this idea and wish to be part of developing the village
    please come and develop the eco-village together

    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 huts along the pond )
    we are now registered not for profit organization Registered Foundation number 5/2561 Kalasin Thailand
    we suggested volunteers help us donate for the food and basic things
    for the food, we cook together most of the time and eat out sometimes ( visiting local community )

    Smoking and drinking alcohol are strictly prohibited
    if you are non-smokers and non-alcoholism.
    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
