Our names are Takihiro, Sophea and Raksa. We are a farmer that created an organic farm in Mondulkiri province, Cambodia. Our farm was supported by the CEDAC organization and cooperate with the landowner to rent the land and do organic together.
There are two projects on our farm: 1, produce the organic product. 2, cooperate with other organic farmers for organic technical consultants and open ideas for developing organic agriculture in Cambodia.
We need many volunteers 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 an office, banana, and passion fruit. We are designing a vegetable garden. We live in a mountain house. We think, what we have we can share. YOUR HOUSE YOUR HAPPY FARM.
Way for coming ...
Our Farm in Mondulkiri province (Mondulkiri means that the center of the mountain) at the north-east of Cambodia. Our farm stay in Saen Monorom city (Saen Monourom mean that beautiful city), Sangkat Sokadom ( Sokadom commune).
It is 12 km from Saenmonorom city and no street number. For the way travel from the town to our farm a little problem (only raining time the road is a little difficult but still can going. We call it the adventure way). We spend around 20 minutes from the town to our farm.
We are separate two departments are fruits garden and vegetable garden. Our farmland is 13 hectares include the natural forest. We keep the natural forest for balance between our agricultural actions and the natural.
So, it still some have animal wild, is on the mountain and it may be colder than other province of Cambodia (around 17 C – 35 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.

Why does workaway.info allow listings of hosts who charge money?
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.
US$20 per week
