    Description

    Hey everyone,

    I´m Pon, currently living on the farm with my cat Aw & dog Hamnoi, some free-range chickens, turkey, geese and ducks.

    :)

    We will laugh a lot together & you can learn not only about my style of Thai cooking & culture, but also about farming, gardening, building, crafting, climbing and more skills!

    Early in January 2017, we started an eco-project which aims for self-reliance, regenerative farming and permaculture as its core principles and inspirations. This project has become functional in our local community as a small outdoor space & learning area of alternative skills for local people and local networks surrounded by serene nature.

    During the Pandemic our connection to the land thrived through perennial crops and gardening, the initiation a project with our craft of garden tools made out of recycled steel and timber from our reforestation efforts, and also our efforts to distributing our collection of plant varieties which grow well in our landscape.

    After the Pandemic we are back to share experiences with nature lovers, we have prepared outdoor camping sites to serve bird watchers and families who love nature. We have also started hosting nature base workshops and events to serve the local community again in 2023. Some of you guys can be apart of this in the near future!

    Our 30-acre project is located in peaceful forest and wild bush type land, but currently the land is becoming filled with lots of pioneer species such as banana, papaya, bamboo and also some native trees and perennial veggie gardens. We have natural buildings and ponds surrounded by nice farmer neighbors, a local school and village within walking distance, and only 30 km. from the world heritage 'Khao-Yai national park'.


    The project urgently needs help with...

    * Some restoration in our mud houses & outdoor landscaping work.
    * And the process of establishing an organic & edu-farm project.

    ** you will be part of leaning process by sharing your language skills with local participants.

    We aim to utilize as much of the farm's natural resources as possible and only import other materials when necessary.

    A wide variety of ecological food, a dormitory room and quite stable Wifi are provided for your volunteer spirit journey

    :)
