Our mango, jackfruit, durian, rambutan, betel nut, coconut, pineapple, orange, lemon, and banana trees are succesfully growing at our place. We would like to start growing vegetables, herbs and any healthy thing that prolongs life.
We would also like to build more bungalows (I used to build adobe constructions in Germany), we are about to build a water tower, we renovate our tour boats ourselves and are looking to become more and more self-sufficient(rearing hens and ducks, processing our fruits.etc) and to build a house specific for the volunteers.
There is plenty of work to be done and you will have a chance to find where you think you might be more useful - building, planting, leading the jungle tours...
There is a school in the village on the other side of the river where recycling and building improvement projects have been running and with which you could also get involved.
No fees, food and lodging in exchange for 4-6h of work. You will be expected to either cook or help in the kitchen, we all do.
Conditions are rustic but comfortable, we have everything we need.
