The journey begins
OM KAMPOT PERMACULTURE FOODFOREST
Established in 2013, it is one of the original permaculture projects in Cambodia. OM Kampot Permaculture Foodforest is located approximately 22 km from Kampot. It is dedicated to mimicking nature in the gardens to provide food — a permaculture farm created with passion by Akoo and his family.
Experience a natural approach to living in the Kampot province — this project is a great place to observe and learn from nature. Volunteer work will include assisting in developing and maintaining the food gardens. If you are looking for a secluded location, you will love the energy of this ever-growing project.
Volunteers are responsible for their own cooking. There is an abundance of wild edible greens and other foods growing. We suggest that you allow a budget of between $1 and $2 per day to supplement what is available from the food forest.

14 days minimum
Any day arrival with minimum two days notice of arrival day
Type of work
Work-wise, usually 4 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 gardening. A lot of time is also spent maintaining the place — cleaning, caring for plants & animals, etc., so expect very varied work.
Where possible, food is sourced from the garden, and volunteers are responsible for their own food preparation. It is suggested to allow between $1 and $2 per head for supplementary foods, depending on your diet.
Accommodation is simple, with a mosquito net under a dorm roof (with mattress/pillow/linen provided), shared cold showers and toilets.
