About the workproject

We need 5 volunteers

We are a community interested in building a place that would promote and teach individuals how a more sustainable future can be achieved. We are not attached to the grid and all our energy comes through sustainable forms of energy such as bio gas solar energy hydro power etc. We need volunteers to help in various areas of this project which would involve building we are currently building a large auditorium as a means to spread awareness among st the locals and thus there are many hands required, farming is also another area in which we are in need of lots of hands as our organic produce currently is a very expensive ordeal in terms of labor per vegetable and of course other areas such as cooking general maintenance substitute classes throwing workshops etc. The school is located in a valley next to a beautiful untouched waterfall.An amazing site. In your leisure time you can swim go for treks go the waterfall take yoga classes close by and many other activities. We would be happy to learn from you and teach you also our ways of life

Well im a rather positive individual always happy to meet new people and learn a thing or two from them and teach a thing a two as wellsmile Sometimes extroverted fewer times introverted, can be blunt people say, i say it how it is without sugar coating it and perhaps a little insensitive to bourgeois mindsets. I am somewhat conservative in the Indian sense, I respect a persons need for space and am aware when one is projecting ones self too much, A Libra, so balanced in all aspects of life not too strong but neither a pushover, passionate but not intrusive. I get along with people rather easily and it seems after reading this im a little egoistic so watchful of that too.
