About the workproject

We need 6 volunteers

We have a 10 acre oil palm estate which we are converting into an organic farm utilising about 2 to 3 acres of the area.

We are looking for volunteers to help in setting up the area like cabin building, landscaping, farming and others.

Our priority will be establishing structures for basic living. Construction on the cabin almost completed. there is no electricity at the moment (we are looking at installing solar panels or getting electricity pulled to the land). there is an outdoor shower, and a kitchen in progress.

We look forward to welcoming you into our family, the malaysian way and hope the bonds we build will continue to grow beyond the time you spend here.

Volunteers can stay as long as they want
