Join an Eco-village in Thailand

Gaarawe Eco-village is located in Khao Sok, Thailand. It is a not-for-profit village. Everything that we make and do is invested back into the project. Thatโ€™s why we canโ€™t offer free food and training to all who visit us (we distinguish between qualified and trainee volunteers). If you have one of the skills we need (or have a skill you think we need) Gaarawe will invest in you, if you invest in us!

Updated October 2022 โ€“ This project aims to create a community based on the economy of sufficiency, which is able to produce food and basic necessities both for internal consumption and to offer hospitality to visitors. The community will operate in harmony between living beings and the surrounding environment. The community will live online, both in a virtual sense as a network for exchanging information and contacts, and in a real sense, creating human and commercial exchange relationships, with the partnership to live in a place where “The meaning of life” is based on empathy and on the Man-Nature symbiosis.
To try to project oneself out of the chaos of places destroyed by concrete and battered by the economic and social system of globalized capitalism, it is necessary to pursue a culture of sharing and promote a society made up of “Duties before rights”, of empathy and respect for brother man and for Mother Earth.
