Farming in environmental friendly way always require intense loading of manpower. At our site, there might be different projects or work on going at any time. Someitmes we need people to work with us on farmland while sometimes we need more hands helping us with rice packages, or even sometimes help us clean the site. However, we never intend to exploit your effort. All we wish is that by offering the opportunities for people to practice in farming, more people would be getting to know more about this industry and the career as a farmer. Farming is never romantic, but you could do it with a romantic mindset. Nevertheless, we also expect ourselves to be benefited from your dedication in work, so that we could have more time and energy to plan creative cultivation projects or other farming-experiencing activities open to the public.
By offering cultural exchange opportunities, we expect our farm become where good things could happen, and someday turn into a small universe allowing all different kinds of possibilities. Thus, whoever wants to experience farming, to take a rest from the hustle and bustle life, to try different work challenges, or to know more about agriculture, you are the most welcome here. Even for those who wants to know about veg farming and CSA operation, we are all glad to share our experience with you.
We can host at most 3~4 people at the same time, from 3 or 4 days to two weeks. Actual work schedule is very flexible but subject to weather and work loads. (However, during the busiest time we'll allow longer stay.)
Food and accommodation provided. However, sometimes helpers will be asked to prepare meals if we are too busy. Helpers will need to share one dormitory room. We are now re-organizing our work site so the place is a bit messy for now. Basic appliances are provided and we'll do our best to make you feel comfortable.
However, sometimes friends or students might come to visit us or to work with us, and if they want to stay overnight everyone will have to share the room.
If you want to come, please mail to Yi-hsin at firstname.lastname@example.org Or just ring at +886-916-335-213 (0916-335-213)
