    Sawadee karp , everybody! 😊
    My name is Shu and I am from Japan.
    Just like you, I have been traveling around the world, when in 2015 I started following my vision of designing, creating and building Eden on Koh Tao Island.
    Koh Tao is beyond magical island off the shore of Thai mainland. Its paradise like beaches and tropical environment makes it the ideal destination for sun, diving, adventures, volunteers and visionaries.
    The work started in 2015 and (big big) thanks to all the great and many volunteers within these years the project is slowly drawing to a close. The Earthome is getting close to be completed. This means that now, the main focus lies in designing and creating a garden, Eden.

    So if you like working outside, on a tropical island with beaches right at your doorstep, using nature’s materials and be surrounded by a bunch of positive volunteers from all around the world – this project is for you. 😊

    My experiences over the past few years have shown, that we work, stay and have meals together. Then, become good friends, like a family - it is an awesome experience, na? 😊

    We need help watering the garden.

    Graphic Design: Somebody with graphic design skills could help me design a logo or some parts of a website.
    Cooking: All the work takes a lot of energy and is there a better way of energizing than by enjoying delicous food on a jungle porch on an island? 😊For this we are always looking for two people who enjoy going fruit and vegetable shopping at the local market and create a nice and delicious meal to feed all the volunteers. Sounds good? We are happy to welcome you
