    Hi, I am very interested in volunteering at your farm in September 2015. Can you please let me know if this is possible?
    Thank you.

      Hi Cameron,

      You are very welcome to our farm. But next year september is a little bit too long for now. Can you email us again 2 months before your travel? Most probably will be no problem.

    My friend and I, totally two people, are planning working-for-accommodation during the end of January and the beginning of Fabruary, lasting at least for two weeks. And we’re pretty interested in your project.
    Please give us more information about it.
    Thank you!

    Hi, i am currently in college in NYC but leaving next semester. I don’t like it at all and am desperately missing nature. I want to stay somewhere and work for a long period, maybe two months. Starting this January and maybe extending until March. Are stays that long possible?


  5. Hello,

    Me and my partner are coming to Thailand in December – I have experience in conservation/ecology and he in construction work/building. We are both very keen to learn about farming and permaculture as we would like to run our own sustainable place one day. Just wandering what your availability is like for December/January time? We are hard working and very good characters looking to learn and to exchange skills! Someone to give us recommendations for travel would be good too 🙂

    Many thanks.

    My name is Natasha and I will be traveling and volunteering on organic farms and permaculture projects in Thailand for a few months this winter and spring. I am a sculptor and gardener and I love working with my hands, learning about the many uses of plants, growing (and eating!) healthy, chemical-free food, and learning traditional crafts and technologies. I have worked on WWOOF farms in the past, I have experience working on home construction and I have taken courses in horticulture, organic farming, and permaculture all in the hopes of starting my own permaculture project in the future. I would love to come work with you if you have availability this February, hopefully toward mid-late February! Thank you!

    I am travelling to Thailand with my 6 year old son for 3 months from late March. Would you take us on as volunteers? It sounds like we would very much enjoy being a part of your project.
