    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Volunteers will get to experience a once in a lifetime opportunity to work very closely with Lao local people in our project site along the mighty Mekong river and the project that aims to conserve rich edible biodiversity of Laos.

    Our project gives people new skills necessary to perform agro-ecology in a way that will also benefit their livelihoods.
    The farm project site 1 is quite isolated and has an "island" type feel to it because the only neighbors around are a 5 minute boat ride across the Mekong River.
    The farm project site 2 is perfect spot for hiking and swimming.
