The Experience

Volunteers help out at my organic farm. The farm is hidden away from the noise of the city and volunteers stay in a private bungalow at my farm. I lead meditation 2 times per day and welcome volunteers to join me and learn more about themselves and thai culture. My wife and daughter will share with you how to cook thai food and you can learn from them. We have no wifi or electricity and live a simple, relaxing life here at the farm.

It has been a great experience in many ways, I recommend it to anyone who really seeks to connect with local people and their ways of life, they have a lot to teach us about sustainability and our adaptation to the environment without causing harm.
Daily activities vary as they arise, everyone has something to learn and enjoy, always being in touch with nature has been a great challenge to continue learning.
Wat and his family are welcoming and have been attentive at all times so that we do not lack anything.
I would definitely repeat it again 😊

I really loved volunteering on Watcharafarm. The farm is quite far away from Chiang Mai but it was exactly what I needed. I liked the work and the food was delicious. I really recommand this place!

Beautiful countryside, healthy delicious food, wonderful family and an authentic simple daily thai life next to the jungle. Watchara is a very interesting man, who knows really well his country plus he has also been in nearby countries, and he is always willing to share his knowledge in all aspects. His wife is tremendous cook aand very kind and always willing to help, and his daughter is very very smart and a excellent checkers player.
I'll definately want to come back.

It was my first experience with Worldpacker and it was perfect. The farm it was ok, the host was so kind and the family it was great. I spent a few days there and the job is easy, you learn about plants. There is a lot of peace and you can relax and desconnect of everything. There isn't electricity but you adapt to their lifestyle. I really recommend you to take this wonderful experience. Thanks a lot Watchara and family.
