I am Jocean, my wife Ayu & I run our guest house and farm, an hour or two South of Jakarta, where we make great food, & treat people right. We started the farm to try and do something good while the forest grows back around us, and to make something beautiful, and productive, for my children, and the small community on the mountain, we're a part of.
We are an educationally oriented, simple gourmet agroforestry project. We currently focus our production on salad greens and herbs for select Jakarta restaurants, and have a B & B / guest house to accommodate Jakarta cement refugees/paying guests, foodies, & students, young and old, people interested in reconnecting with more natural patterns of life, reinvigorating local cultures, and exploring combinations of Western and Indonesian spices. We're growing more fruits & vegetables for our guests & you to eat on the farm these days. Exchange housing will be in modified West Javanese rice barns. Ideally, workawayers would have some experience in agriculture, construction, or food production, but all hard working, willing enthusiasts of tropical forests are encouraged to contact us, we've made friends with volunteers in tech, design, literary, accounting and building fields in the past, among others...free loaders, sorry, but go to jalan jaksa saja, protecting the fair trade lovely balance of volunteering is important to us, & we take very good care of our volunteers, so expect you to make a good contribution too.
In almost all cases, we will have a minimum stay of three weeks, as we're not authoritarians, and it may take a bit of time for you to find your working niche on the farm. Any questions, let us know, hope this finds you well.
We're new to the workaway format, so please feel free to ask us questions
I hope this finds you well, please do get in touch if you'd like to contribute on the Farm.

The exchange of knowledge, making new friends...and all the good ones, enjoy working with our team, making friends with them as colleagues, trading funny language jokes/learning, and making the world a smaller, better place. I originally ended up in Indonesia as an exchange student, so it is the logical thing to extend a similar opportunity to others, whenever we can. You will learn some Sundanese language, how to make umbrellas out of leaves, dominoes/a good card game, and other more useful skills.
Everyone must be useful, on the farm. We have gardens, we have guests we have construction projects & a dozen other things in process going on right now...if you have a skill that could compliment our projects here, we love collaboration, so tell us what you like to do...otherwise, there are always things to clean & weeds to pull, with laughs mixed in.

The workawayers will have an experience staying in Leuit, a rice barn, private room with a sharing bathroom. Some meals prepared independently, they can use some ingredients from the kitchen, & our farm.
We provide 3 very good meals a day for our volunteers, from our farm/as locally sourced as possible...we're listed as one of the best 5 places to eat in Java, in the most recent Lonely Planet.
train via bogor was the best way to get to us, kai.id, pangrango line, BOO to CCR.
Accès Internet limité
Nous avons des animaux

We just plugged in our own dedicated receiver to the nearest cell tower, I have surrendered my prior anti internet stance to allow for remote working guests, this could work for volunteers, too.
never seen a campervan in indo though...could be funny.
maximum 25 hours, 5 days a week, depending on & the rains & seasons
