    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a community composed of French, Thai, Karen, Thai-French, English and some Spanish so languages swapping and variety is here a daily practice. We are a farm and an education center at its very beginning and in construction. You can learn by action practicing Permaculture and its principles. We do farming, natural building, compressed brick making, carpentry, plumbing, solar energy, goat caring, ducks, goose, worm composting, Aquaponics, water management, sustainability and open source computer and maker space...

    We will teach you and you will practice how to make compost and worm composting (worm casting).

    Free Permaculture Design Course (FREE PDC) in San Kamphaeng, Chiang Mai Thailand.
    We as well provide for long terms volunteers who commits to a 3 months volunteering an opportunity by an immersion to self learn the complete P.D.C. 72 hours curriculum by Bill Mollison using our internal resources with me as Permaculture teacher facilitation. The PDC lead to the Permaculture Design Course certificate after submitting a Permaculture design. (Please message and ask us about this it as it contains a curriculum, some more information and requirements).

    We offer as well Permaculture Free Internship in San Kamphaeng, Chiang Mai Thailand for volunteers who already have a Permaculture Design Certificate or at least did a 3 days introduction to Permaculture.
    Based on minimum 2 to 3 months stay with free hosting, food and washer machine, interns will commit to volunteering perfecting their skills or desiring a practical experience.
    They will co create and design fully functional Permaculture elements.
    Interns will have access to an extensive multimedia library.
    Regular meetings with the host who is a Permaculture teacher and facilitator are organized to raise all observations, feedback and questions.
