  • Description


    I am Sharifah , 58 years old retired from the coperate world 6 years ago and been doing a lot of eco friendly projects and experiments. I wish to implement my knowledge in sustainable living and permaculture concepts at the same time creating the environment to prove its worth, I need extra hands TO REALISE my aspiration for a better world.
    I wish to create natural pools and various sustainable landscape and buildings. If you are into permaculture it would be a great practice/ learning experience.
    I am currently working on a sustainable farm.

    note : 1. please be aware i am not offering a ready eco friendly resort living for the workaway. I have a small wooden house on the land.
