  • Description

    Description

    This is on a hilltop surrounded by lush green trees and villages in the foothills. The farm has a family of 2 and a gardner who stay and need assistance for organic farming. This is a 100% organic farm. Absolutely no chemicals anywhere. It is also litter-free. We are one of the few dozen farmhouses, so you can walk around in absolute wilderness (unless its dark - when we restrict).

    We are a group of volunteers who help this super large farm that has a great opportunity for organic farming of fruits, vegetables, and medicinal herbs. We have a beautiful house where we all stay and cook together and teach other wonderful things via workshops. There is ample opportunity to learn how to respect the earth, the body, and the soul. We are seeking like-minded individuals who can offer a substantial amount of time for this project and help us create a space where individuals can live sustainably and in harmony with nature, community, and the energy around you, for whatever duration they seek. This is a strictly gift-economy-driven place and there is no scope for use of money anywhere within this house. However, if you offer workshops or receive workshops, contributions to the teacher in any form is acceptable.

    We are eager to host people who love farming, creating things with wood/carpentry, tending fruit trees, permaculture specialists, yoga/meditation students or teachers, and similar profiles.

    The farm has 6 dogs rescued from the streets, non-resident peacocks, birds, and occasional deer or jackals.

    The entire farm is secured with a boundary wall, and have a large hard floor/concrete space, and big open ground on the end of the farm where you can also pitch your tent and stay for additional privacy.

    Food and stay are provided. There is absolutely no payment for anything whatsoever.

    Help

    We want farm hands, people who can help us in making our farmland into a fully sustainable organic farm.

    Additionally you can teach English to the village people, help in waste management, conduct social enterprise projects for the marginalized people here in the neighborhood. We also need people who are good in art, yoga, meditation and healing practices, which we exchange and learn amongst ourselves. We have a super large flat piece of land on the hill that we aspire to build into a free yoga teaching center.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We have a one-bedroom/bath space available as a separate unit near the main gate that can be used by a family or group, a big garden with tents, and also some space on the farm where you could pitch your own tents.
    We have a clean building structure that needs a bit of renovation/roofing which can turn it into a beautiful 3 bedroom home.

    Everyone gets a clean sheet, mattress, pillows, and some personal items like natural soaps and a personal clean water bottle.
    Food served is vegetarian, and the farm is void of alcohol and tobacco, but we are not judgemental of anyone not adhering to our ways.

    Being spiritual at the core, we have guidelines on living that imbibe this. The power of impersonal relations supports community living and inward focus. It is the vision to respect the spiritual search of self-focus with inclusive relationships rather than other-focus of exclusive relationships. For this purpose, it is encouraged that couples find their individual space within the community and sleep separately if possible.
