  • Description

    Description

    We live in central Taiwan Chiayi city, near Chiayi Train Station about 5 mins by walking. The famous tour site Mountain Ali is in Chiayi County about 80 kilometers from my house. My wife and me have a acupuncture & herbs drinking shop in town. We are building a nature and organic farm for mental & physical health in countryside at my hometown. From my house to the farm about 30 mins. by car. We are opening mind, welcoming, and ambitious to create Taiwanese culture exchange. There is a buddism temple beside our farm. If you are interested in knowing Taiwanese religion. I already build this farm 3 years, because my wife has to take care of shop business, most of time only me go to the farm by a van. I need volunteers to help me to build huts/scaffoldings, henhouse, fence and weeding tasks. I don't go to the farm everyday. The farm helping day and time are flexible, I am easy to coordinate. We have a dog and 2 small gardens at my house, 1-2 or all helping days help at my house . The volunteers will stay my shop property. There are two rooms share one bathroom. For meals, if the workawayers have to work on that day, we provide food, if it's a day off, you can either go to supermarket cross from our property to get food, or you can cook by yourself.
