The journey begins
We are a fledgling community collaboration project designed to measure the resource requirements necessary to unplug from the paradigm that is currently destroying the planet.
Come and learn how to utilise the principles of aquaponics, permaculture, free energy and earthships, whilst having fun as an open community of friends. The aim is to produce not just sustainably but to demonstrate how we can produce a surplus for trading nationally, in order to further the positive impact on the surrounding communities and environment.
Is this for me?
OrganiKH Project is a permaculture model farm in Cambodia, aiming to promote sustainable living and to support the local community via a farmers’ co-op and responsible tourism activities.
Length of Stay:
10 days all inclusive experience
Mondays and Thursdays only
Type of work
Work-wise, usually 5-6 hours of work per day, depending on projects & weather. The day starts with breakfast and a morning meeting.
Then, depending on the season, work includes infrastructure (natural building, earthworks, woodwork) and/or gardening every other day! 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.
OrganiKH provides 3 nice meals per day (+ all-day water, tea, coffee, fruits, local snacks…), with products from the farm or local market, mostly Khmer and vegetarian (but not always, so please let them know if you have specific diet). In any case, the food is always tasty — Darin, your host, has been a top chef many years !
Accommodation is simple, with a mosquito net under a dorm roof (with mattress/pillow/linen provided), and 2 shared cold showers and compost toilets. If you’re lucky, maybe one of their small huts can be yours.
What to Bring
Useful items to bring: A mosquito repellent, a torch/head light, as they don’t have much electricity outside buildings yet, a hat/cap and flip-flops are a must, as well as a good dose of energy and smiles!
There is no WiFi, so it is suggested you purchase your own SIM card.
$5 USD per day
