Hello everybody ! My name is Narin (33 years old from Thailand) and I started an eco-friendly farm with my friend Vone (34 years old from Laos, born in France).
I spent the last 5 years volunteering and running farm for others, then I decide that I was ready to run my own project in my hometown nearby my family.
The main goal here is to become a self-sufficient vegan farm. Our inspirations come from the Thai traditional agriculture and also from Mr Fukuoka's books about natural farming. But as vegan we have to mix those inspirations with our own values.
For exemple we are very interested about the differents phases and position of the moon before we plant trees, vegetables or before we decide to harvest the fruits and vegetables.
We also try to build mostly from natural materials like bamboo, earth and straws.
We are located 6km south of Phayao between the mountains and the rice fields.
It is set on 3 acres of land with food forests and we have vegetable gardens on contour, rice paddies and ponds.
We welcome volunteers all year around. As a volunteer you will be staying in simple accomodation around our beautiful farm. We will provide 3 meals a day ; the meals will be made from vegan whole foods and most of it comes from the farm. We will cook together and you will learn about our Thai-vegan cuisine.
We'll cook breakfast and lunch in the morning (around 6:30-7am) and we'll cook the dinner (around 7-7:30pm) ; you can help if you want to.
Please note, we are not a tourist attraction. Because we are a functioning farm we expect volunteers to be committed and interested in our philosophy.
We are looking forward to meet you and share our philosophy and ideas !
To give the volunteers the best experience we are currently taking maximum 3 people at a time.
We suggest the volunteers to help us with a donation for the food and accommodation that we will provide.
To get to the farm ; you just have to come to Phayao bus station and we will pick you up.
