Looking for help with:
The mission of our community
We are a learning centre which promotes natural building techniques mainly utilizing earth, straw, timber and bamboo. Our goal is to inspire people to attain a more simple, self-reliant and environmentally friendly lifestyle. We need volunteers to make some natural buildings and help for gardening (planting, compost making).
Our place gathers people from various countries and cultures, including Asian (Thai etc), which give the chance for people to share their views, inspirations when they work or during lunch/dinner time.
In addition, we are a centre promoting self-sufficiency, natural and simple lifestyle. So, this creates a lot of discussions on these topics, as more and more people, especially the youth want to escape from a normal life based on working for money, consuming, ignoring their own and more important needs.
How many volunteers could you host?
When would you need volunteers?

How many hours of help per day?
5 hours of volunteer activities
How many days of help per week?
5 days per week
Food and accommodation
We offer free food and accommodation
Volunteers can stay either in a dormitory or in a tent (1 or 2 people)
We can accommodate Vegetarian and non-vegetarians.
PS: For now, accommodation is in tents but the dormitory and a big yurt should be finished at the end of May 2019.
No, we cannot help with Visa but I can offer assistance
Our place is a learning centre, so they can learn a lot about natural building techniques, suitable for the tropical climate and other climates. The discussion and exchanges can make them change ideas, views on several topics, and maybe change their lifestyle and inspire others.
What to do in the free time
Volunteers are free to walk around the farm in the field and nature. There are several tree plantation and rice paddies. We are also close to a Meditation Center and tourist spots if you want to visit after volunteering with us.
- English (also French)
It is surrounded by fruit trees farms, rice fields, 25 km from a big city, so it is very natural and quiet.
