  • Description


    We are planting banana, papaya and some vegetables in our 2acres farm. It's organic and free from chemicals either fertilizer or pesticide. It's time to harvest our Janda Baik ginger, the best ginger in our region. We very much welcome anyone who are willing to help us.

    We have cats, dogs, chickens, a pond of red tilapia and we grow our own vegetables and local fruits.

    For lodging, we provide 3 rooms (1&2 persons per room) a bathroom and a toilet. Personal hygiene is very important when living in a community. Please bring your personal hygiene products as we don't provide them.

    This village is a Muslim community. We would be very much appreciated it if ladies not to wear hotpants ( please wear appropriate clothing). Please bring flip-flops, mosquitoes repellent and for wifi please buy a simcard.

    We practice social integration through understanding, tolerance and respect for others. Hey nobody is perfect! Anyway we hope you will have a pleasant and enjoyable experience with us that will last for the rest of your life.
