  • Description


    Urgent ***We are currently building a new Workawayer Camp and need help with installing the solar, hydro and wind systems.
    We will be building with bamboo and wood mostly and partially also cement.
    If you have the skills needed, you are welcome. We also prefer people who have already been to a permaculture farm or who have done PDC so we can practise with farm designing. We would also be glad if you have a vision of an intentional community so we can relate to each other. We prefer those who will stay a minimum of three weeks.

    About us:
    We are a start-up permaculture farm located on an island (Biliran Island) in the Philippines. The place is envisioned by the owners, David and Lany (German-South American and Filipina couple), during their PDC Immersion in Thailand. The sanctuary is set to continuously improve into a regenerative farm paired with mixes of wellness activities such as freediving, yoga, meditation, sacred ceremonies, foraging courses, survival skills, organic Philippine cooking and holistic tourism.

    The building of the Bamboo-Ferrocement Dome is currently on a break as we‘re setting up the new Workawayer Camp.

    Landscapewise, the area has a magnificent view of the blue ocean, islands and the towering hills and mountains. A visitor will experience waking up to the sunrise and ending the day with the sunset view. The lot has a small waterfall and is surrounded by many river channels. We are so excited to welcome you and share this life here.

    Who and what are we looking for:
    +We are looking for individuals, couples or groups
    who have open and willing hearts to help us build this permaculture haven.
    +Those who love to stay in intentional communities and have a vision of long term staying.
    +If you have knowledge about permaculture and organic farming, it will be a huge impact. +We are glad if you have skills in homestead gardening, building, conscious designing, natural healing modalities and survival skills.
    +Those who want to experience a laidback, simple, back-to-basics and natural lifestyles are welcome to join.

    What you will get in return:
    +Free stay in a native village
    +Free food (breakfast and lunch) Mondays to Fridays, not particular for vegetarians and vegans
    +Meditation together

    If you stay minimum of three weeks:
    +one free healing ceremony
    +Free Apnea fun dive
    +Certification at the end of stay

    Plus you will have a hands-on and learning experience in the lot, adventures in selected spots, will get to taste authentic Philippine cuisines (non-vegetarians) and memories. Learn to gather your own firewood and nature foods.

    We ask help in building huts out of native materials. It would be nice also if you have a vision of living in an intentional community where each one thrives.
    We are looking for individuals with visions of a regenerative farm.
    We are particularly currently in need of help in our #slow and #gradual permaculture farm landscaping and other help in the farm would be greatly appreciated.
    We can gather firewood, forage food and learn cooking traditional Filipino dishes together. We are non-vegetarians and non-vegans but we try as much as possible to cook mostly vegetables. We don't plan our meals our vegetarians and vegans as we live in a farm raising animals, we eat our livestock. We spearfish too sometimes, so we eat fish/seafood.

  • Hébergement


    Simple, VERY basic native hut.
    We provide an A-frame hut, a jackfruit treehouse, a big dormitory for 4 people, a rounded hut and spaces in the unfinished dome. There is also a big tent. We can also provide one smaller tent for you.
    There are also spaces for hammocks and tents. The village still shows the basics of living. One cannot "expect" much convenience but anything can be acquired. There are online shops and it is easily get delivered to Biliran. There are local markets (15 mins) and big shops in Naval town (45 mins). Atm is about 20-30 minutes away from us.

    We have STARLINK but a mobile data from your Philippine sim alone will allow you to watch and stream videos. We just have particular time when we plug-in the Starlink as we are using solar energy and only batteries at night. On weekends, the internet is slow and from 5pm to 10pm, it is fluctuating. Mornings and late evenings are good connections.
