  • Description


    We are a family of 4 living 8km south of Chiang Mai in the north of Thailand. Our kids are 4 & 1,5 year old, we also have 1 dog and 2 cats.

    We bought a piece of land and built a house, pool with bar and sala, extra little bathroom house, carport and treehouse already. Our garden is huge and we need a little help to finish it all up and make it look nice and green. We need to get the veggie garden going, paint all the wooden constructions and install the sprinkler system for the garden. So mostly we need help in the garden and with painting.

    The area where we live is a cute and quiet village with lovely neighbors where you can experience real Thai culture. Temple festivities, karaoke with the neighbors, local food for exceptional cheap prices and laid back village life. The best, it is just outside of the hustle & bustle of Chiang Mai.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Sun loves to cook and have you try all kinds of local food, which means you could learn a lot about Thai food. Since you are in a friendly village community you can also meet the neighbors and experience real Thai culture, join temple events, go on trips or just hang out at our own pool and enjoy a cold drink at the bar. You can also eat everything you find in the garden, we have banana and papaya trees. We speak all three languages (German, English, Thai) and can teach you some language as well...

  • Help


    We need you to help us with our garden. Your task will be planting and maintaining the veggie and overall garden. There will be also other projects like installing a sprinkler system, woodwork, some construction, cleaning the swimming pool and overall household-related tasks like sweeping the floor and washing dishes. We found it is best to have our volunteers helping for one full day and have one full day off, so we get things done and you have also more time to explore Chiang Mai and the surrounding areas. We are always looking for 2 people at a time, best would be couples or friends. Please make sure you can drive a motorbike to be more independent and to able to get around more easy. We do not accept people without driving skills! Please make sure you have a valid driving licence and be able to drive a motorbike (scooter)!

    Just google Chiang Mai and you will be amazed about what you can do in and around town...

    You MUST be able to drive a motorbike (scooter), hence have a driving license! We are in a village still... even if it is close to town.
