    Description

    I have an 8 acre orchard growing durians and bananas. We have full utilities including wifi.
    This place also serves as a dog sanctuary for 100 + abandoned and abused dogs.
    i also have chickens and would like to grow lots of organic vegetables.
    I want to build a self sustaining farm with organic food to feed my workers and dogs
    i would appreciate someone with agriculture and engineering experience to help me get my biodigester working again.

    My workaways will learn how to take care of an organic farm and interact with my other workers.
    They will eat Malaysian food and fruits.

    I just bought a biodigester from china but is unable to get it working properly. Anybody with experience on running a biodigester would be greatly appreciated
    exerienced dog handlers are most welcome but that's not a criteria. Love for dogs a definite criteria.
    experienced farm management is great but again not a criteria.
    anybody with knowledge of aquaponic growing of vegetables are also welcome. Teach me how to run my farm/orchard/dog sanctuary effectively and cost effectively and i'll guarantee you a holiday you'll remember forever.
    Cooking skills are welcome as I would love to learn from you and teach you how to cook our local meals.

    I prefer that you stay at least one month so you can finish whatever project you are entrusted with before leaving us.

    What else ...

    This is a place near a small town and a gold mine yet there's plenty of forest activities if you are interested. It 's called Raub in the state of Pahang
    The city of kuala lumpur is a 2 hours drive away where you can go during your off days on sunday or saturday.
    plenty of transport such as buses and taxis to take you from raub to kuala lumpur or our very own casino at genting highlands.
    i expect my guests to treat my place and my workers with respect and act with decorum as this is a muslim country even though you are living in a chinese farm in a chinese town. No smoking. Only social drinking.
    The weather here is hot with occasional rains all year through.
