Our names are Takihiro Sophea and Raksa. We are farmer that created organic farm in Mondulkiri province, Cambodia. Our farm was support by CEDAC organization and cooperate with land owner for rent the land and do organic together.
There are two project in our farm: 1, produce organic product. 2, cooperate with other organic farmer for organic technical consultant and open idea for develop organic agriculture in Cambodia.
We need many volunteer from abroad and around the world for sit-down and listening to our heart for what, we want to tell, what we want to share, what want to change and what we plant do together.
In our farm already have office, banana, and passion fruit. We are designing vegetables garden. We live on the mountain house and we have other house front of the forest and near the small water fall but it is empty. We think, what we have we can share. YOUR HOUSE YOUR HAPPY FARM.
Way for coming
Our Farm in Mondulkiri province (Mondulkiri mean that the center of mountain) at the north-east of Cambodia. Our farm is in Saen Monorom city (Saen Monourom mean that really very beautiful), Sangkat Sokadom ( Sokadom commune) We are sorry, because of our farm stay in countryside of the city so it is no street number. For the way travel from the town to our farm a little problem (only raining time the road are a little difficult but still can going. We call it the adventure way). We spend around 15 minute from the town to our farm.
We are separate two department is fruit garden and vegetable garden. Our farm land is 15 hectare include the natural forest. We keep natural forest for balance between our agricultural actions and the natural. So, it still some have animal wild, is on the mountain and it maybe colder than other province of Cambodia (around 17 C – 25 C).
We dream, one day our farm will become Agroecology school for local communities and general people around. However, we still small but step by step.

In developing countries (Where most hosts are involved in charity work or community development) some of our hosts may ask for a small donation to help the host family or charity (often less then 5 dollars per day) Workaway will allow this listing when the donation goes directly to the family or charity and is just to cover the cost of the volunteer‘s stay. (This will be clearly marked on the host listing).
We will strictly not allow listings posted by agents, “middle men” or projects who we feel are looking to profit from a volunteers stay.
