About the workproject

We need 6 volunteers

Would you like to do something for the planet?

welcome you all to visit and help our eco-project
I have lived in the UK for nearly 6 years, and have moved back to Kalasin Thailand.
since December 2016

We have just started building an international Eco-village and we need a lot of help with preparing land for our organic farm, painting huts and wall, looking after the trees and vegetables and cook as well as make the village looks nice such as using recycled materials decorate the surrounding area and sometimes help less fortunate people in the community. While doing those eco activities local students and others local people will be able to practice their English naturally while working with you.

We get up early with a bit of exercise the middle of the rice field
a bit mindfulness meditation and basic yoga in most morning

we have found that it can be pointless when people learn the language but have no chance to practise in daily life
most of them end up forget it

once the village ready
We simply want to help local students who can not afford to practise English in an expensive international school or abroad to have an opportunity to practise English with international people
and we also hope them to engage themselves more with nature rather than spend too much time on technology


we are not making this project for profit we wish to pay respect to the environment and support people who wish to improve their English

if you like this idea and wish to be part of developing the village
please come and develop the eco-village together

we do not want you to feel like you come here to work for us
please come here because you want to do something for nature and the younger generation

accommodations provided ( huts along the pond )
for the food we cook we share the food cost and eat out sometimes ( visiting local community )

if you are non-smokers and non-alcoholism.
and love what has been said above
Hope to see you soon smile

I have just moved back from my hometown (kalasin) from London I did BA in Business and management meanwhile I worked as fashion photographer as well
I first tried mindfulness meditation at the Thai temple in Wimbledon London, my life then starts to shape to become volunteer lean to do something to pay back to the community and environment. 3 years later I decided to come back to my hometown, hope to do something good for local students and environment and I found the eco-villgae should be the one
