    Our house is close to a well known forest reserve, which is only within 5 minutes drive. This forest reserve area covers part of Kepong, Selayang (Bukit Lagong) and Rawang (Templer). Home for numerous species of flora and fauna.

    We love outdoor and nature activities, we are running an organisation which organized outdoor activities for local families and kids. We are planning to build an edible and sustainable permaculture garden in our backyard. You may help in design and work on an edible garden. if you don't have any skills related to farming, you may help in weeding and other jobs too .
