    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    During your stay you will be living on our forest farm in a tent, where we will work, learn, cook and eat together. It is a great opportunity for you to learn about agriculture, lifestyle and ecology through immersion. 

    We will be doing works in stone masonry , pond digging etc where you can try and boost your skills


    You will learn to see the interconnection between Nature and human. You learn about landscaping, forest gardening and how to make the most out of the least input on the long-term (gardening). We can teach about healthy-living and if willing we offer continuing assistance in the sustainable farming.

    At the moment we are at the start of our project, so there are countless things we need help with!

    We want to dig some ponds and water ways for our fishes . we create raised beds for our permacluture landscapes
    Since the forest is quite steep we create terraces by using the stones ,bamboos and ,wood from felled trees.


    We want to build a proper campsite in the top side of our property like a shelter, fireplace, wood storage etc... using the materials from the land. We want to build a natural shower covered with bamboo trees in the stream .
    Using living trees we want to make play houses for the children. We would like more children friendly structures.
    We would like to make our guest house beautiful,and a mud house and bamboo house .

    We welcome artists ,writers ,Students and families who love nature !!!
