We follow the path to the big aim of self sufficiency and learn little by little through tries and mistakes without stress. We mostly work in morning and evening as it is too hot in the day time. We could also help on community work if asked by the villagers around. We will also give importance on the cultural exchange with host and Thai volunteers.
Study Theme: The big aim is to manage to get most of our food from this garden. We try to respect the life in the soil, preserve the diversity of local species and get some safe and healthy food for us, volunteers and visitors. The garden is also a social place where everyone is welcome to join, have a tea or a meal, a discussion and take part in its success. We believe this kind of simple life is sustainable and responsible for the future of this planet.
Accommodation: Volunteers will sleep in huts and tents which will be put up in the project host’s house compound.
Language: Local people speak Thai. We will use English for discussion.
Requirements: positive motivation, open minded, simple conditions of living, willingness to work and live together, build friendship with local people and other volunteers, let's try to make this world a nicer place to live in!!
