Length of Stay:

Sunday arrival only
Type of work
Work-wise, usually 5-6 hours of work per day, depending on projects & the weather. The day starts with breakfast and a morning meeting. Then, depending on the season, work includes infrastructure (natural building, earthworks, woodwork) and gardening. They do their own compost, mud bricks and much more, and a lot of time is also spent maintaining the place, cleaning, caring for plants & animals. Expect very varied work, sometimes tough or unpleasant, but always a lot of fun and sharing!
Baitong provides three meals per day, plus water, tea, fruit and coffee. The food is Khmer cuisine, and usually includes meat. If you are vegetarian or vegan, please notify them, as this can be accommodated.
Accommodation is simple with a mosquito net under a dorm roof (with mattress/pillow/linen provided), shared cold showers and toilets.
