  • Description

    Description

    This is a rural village made up of many large families. The owner of the farm is a young farmer who went back to his hometown. He has been cultivating his organic rice and vegetables for four years now.
    He is now associated with an other farmer and they work together every day.

    In this place you can experience the daily life of a taiwanese farmer in a rural area, learning how to plant organic vegetables.
    So if you are interested in helping us in our organic farm and sharing our everyday life, you are very welcome to joins us !

    In september, our new project is to build a place for archery, then we need to plant strawberries and other vegetables for our farm.
    October will be the time of harvesting everything.

    We wish volunteers to stay 2 weeks minimum, but we prefer 1 month (or more), so we can have time to know each other better :)
