    Maintenance and Construction
    As we are a growing business, we constantly have construction general and maintenance work to keep everything working well. Our maintenance and housekeeping teams are from the local village.

    Momentarily, we are planning to build a new lodge at existing site and on the other side of the river, extending our farm, setting up a bee farm at much more. Furthermore, the bungalows which have been set up 2010 needs to be renovated/rebuild. Be part of our beautiful project to help the environment and community who are actively involved with our Eco Village.

    Most days there will not be a set plan or schedule that will be passed down to you. You should take notice of what needs to be done and take the initiative. We are open to suggestions / ideas for improvements from volunteers.
