  • Descrição


    The Farm is managed by Els (from The Netherlands), who lived at the farm since 2007 together with her late Kenyan husband Kamande. 80 people from the neighborhood work together with Els to run the farm. The Farm is an organic vegetable farm in the Kenyan highlands, where lots of visitors from Nairobi come to enjoy farmlife and learn about 'where does your food come from'. Come help us with your experience in environmental education, cob building and other building and art works. We have a running vegetable farm, and we host lots of visitors. We already have 80 people working with us. Please let us know which specific skills you like to add? Builders, carpenters, plumbers very welcome :-) We need people who have experience with cob building, and to build an eco-toilet. Also let us know if you are good with desktop publishing, environmental education, vegetarian cooking, social media. We also still dream of making our own farm-cookbook!

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    Kenyan rural life may be quite different from what you are used to. You will learn to accept it is not always going as planned, you will learn to adjust, you will learn to work with what you can find (hardware stores are not very well equiped...), you will become very creative :-)
    The farm is run by Els - a Dutch national, who lived at the farm since 2007 together with her late husband Kamande. The farm was started at Kamande's family land. Els' home country the Netherlands, and the difference with Kenyan rural life is quite a contrast. Staying with us at the farm also means you will see a lot of the village-life and we will have time to talk about the culture and way of living in Kenya.

  • Ajuda


    We have a beautiful farm just outside of Nairobi. For educational visits we started a foundation, to welcome schools and other groups to the farm. We would love some help from people who have experience in environmental education. We need to improve on our educational programs for the many schools that are already visiting us, and our staff would love to improve on their skills and knowledge to professionally welcome our visitors. So if you have educational power, please bring it on!
    We also have many general tasks to work on, all noted down on our 'scrum board'. We look for a beekeeper who can teach some of our staff, a carpenter, plumber, and anybody who is experienced in cob-building is very welcome. Next project is another guesthouse (or 2) , naturally built with cob and a natural roof and a rocket stove inside. We do have people for the heavy labor, so we are more focused on knowledgeable people on education, carpentry, cob-building, arts and design, social media etc. If you like cooking, you are also most welcome to prepare diner and teach our kitchen staff new recipes.

  • Acomodação


    The Farm is in a small Kenyan village, not far from Nairobi. You will be staying either in the farmhouse or at one of our 2 guestrooms (with eco-toilet) above the outside kitchen. We have 1 extra guest bedroom in our house. The farmhouse is more of a community house, for Els + an assistant manager + Kamande's brother. So you will experience the real 'farmstay' together with the farmers. We share the meals (mostly vegetarian/vegan) together, of course with lots of fresh vegetables from the farm.

    Algo mais...

    the Farm is in a real rural area, but only 1 hour away from Nairobi, so during your time off you can enjoy the best of both worlds - you can enjoy the peace and clean air in the village, it is beautiful to walk in the neighbourhood. Nairobi's citylife and shoppingmalls are not too far away and easily done by public transport.
    We will be happy to advice!
