  • Description


    We are a developing syntropic agroforestry farm based on the principles of permaculture and combining it with the knowledge of syntropic agroforestry and zero budget natural farming. The farm is in its initial development phase and we require help with the plantation, watering , harvest and eco construction of dwelling units. We intend to make earthbag domes and an earthship later. We also invite volunteers to create art, decor, handling social media and restoration of old religious books which have been passed down for generations. Some time will be dedicated to teaching the local kids in spoken English and computer literacy.

    Eventually, this will also be acting as a digital detox centre practicing undoing instant gratification. It is a non judgemental space where you can totally be yourself and create as you like once the project is approved.

    We look forward to hosting you and having some amazing collaboration and connections.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It's a digital detox place. Try to spend less screen time, workout, meditate , make connections. Vipassana meditation will be held everyday for about 1 hr. There's going to be a easy going routine which the volunteers are requested to follow for their overall body and mind awareness. You can spot many migratory birds and go for a walk in the neighbourhood. I would like to think of a minimal life, farm based meals and his discussions at evening bonfires.
