    In general, We place on here since early of this year, practically everything needs fixing and replacement which includes four adobe houses, several communal area and structures also getting the farm up and running!!.

    1) We need someone to feed us, And the Thai cooking is kind of magic and always need more hand for help, also cook your own style is always possible, after then the taking care of the household is an important task.

    2) Demolition, construction & renovation; Tearing down parts of buildings, setting up new area, structures, repairing parts of building structures, fixing all buildings and getting all functions up and running. Building chicken coop, outdoor shelters for goats and Ducks, storage sheds, workshops space, communal nursery, fencing, reed bed demonstration etc..

    3) Getting fields prepared for production of vegetation and grain etc..

    4) Forestry: Bushes and trees have taken over, so here is quite a bit to do to clear fields and farm roads, hiking trial etc.; filling trees, clearing bushes, producing firewood, wood-chips and timber for building things.

    5) Building a geo-dome out of metal and recycled materials.

    6) A camera man & microphone to capture the community innovation, skills and stories of local foods leaders and permaculture practitioners

    7) Website upgrades to provide online learning opportunities, interactive site maps, product sales, networking and more
