  • Description


    We've moved to our land about 6 years ago near the forest mountains, 25 km east of Chiang Mai city. Having lived in the city but traveled a lot, we are now settling down more and try to grow our own food, medicinal plants, building wooden and bamboo houses, making our own cleaning products, filtering our own water , composting recycling all our waste.

    If you're interested in wooden building, organic farming, Thai cooking, and yoga, you're welcome to stay with us. There are bamboo bungalows and private wooden rooms for our volunteers . Our place is also close to San Kamphaeng Hot Spring, Muang On cave, Crazy Horse rock climbing, etc.
    Our comfortable wooden and bungalow rooms ( mostly private rooms), yoga classes ,limitless wifi ,laundry,a bicycle ,water & other drinks, and a fridge always ready with fruits etc..are free for short term volunteers.
    Please ask for the details about "food contrubition" ; how to get, buy , harvest, cook in the farm, or other options if you could grow or buy your own food.Because it all depends on seasons and how much we grow throughout the year.
    Our target is to be totally self sufficient in our small farm about food , water , shelter , medicine , energy etc..We are not a commercial farm so we are not growing large scale vegetables and fruits to sell outside for money. So we and our volunteers have lots of free time. A couple of hours help a is enough for us.. we go rock climbing 2 days a week and hike to the mountain once a week. Volunteers are always welcome to join us for these epic outdoor activities.
    We have minimum stay of 8 days.

    And besides the all work, we enjoy our time with sharing our knowledges&experiences with volunteers together. Take this place not like a hard working mono-culture farm but a little learning center with the harmony in the nature and with self sufficiency in love..We believe , for a better planet , for more real life, and free & independent future, all of us can start to act and learn..
