I had an amazing time at the farm. Deepa and the staff took really good care of me. I had some issues with the food, and they tried their best to help me with this situation. Regarding the job, it took a few days to break the ice with the guys with whom I was working with (since I was the only volunteer for a couple of days) but it was a great opportunity to get to know each other better. The job in the farm was mainly physical: helping to build a wall, watering plants, etc. I really enjoyed it! I would recommend 100% the farm to anyone!

I had a really good time here at the farm and it was nice to get some extra grass cutting skills. The farm it self is super beautiful. It is nice to see how everything grows and what it all takes to grow things. Deepa felt like a mom, her hospitality was on point! Also the rest of the team was very welcoming. Tougher with the other volunteers it felt as a big familie!

Pod stayed with us in October on our "study" program, working 3 hours daily and studied the rest of the time.

Pod is a extremely easy person to have around as he is very friendly, calm, honest, polite and will do any work given without hesitation.

It's been a great pleasure for us to have you at the farm Pod. We had a wonderful cultural exchange also learning a lot about Thailand. Pod is an aspiring English teacher, a certified diver and a great chess player!

On his last days he volunteered in the nearby moonestary teaching sports and about the ocean, underwater world, to the monk students there.

Thank you very much Pod bhai for your nice contribution in our community.

I spent 2 wonderful weeks in the farm. Thomas, Deepa, and all the others on the farm were more than welcoming and made me feel at home from the moment I stepped into the village and farm. I was surrounded by the nicest bunch of people all throughout my volunteering experience, learned a lot about nature and plants on the farm and around the area, and was able to truly experience and learn about Nepali culture and customs. This experience has been incredibly precious to me, and will always remain dear to my heart. Big thank you to everyone! Sending love, Ruta

Ruta is an experienced volunteer and she slipped very fast and smoothly into our routines.

She would try her hands at any given tasks. Cutting grass, weeding, mulching, feeding plants, sorting coffee, picking and processing hibiscus was some of the work she did.

Ruta is sociable, kind and friendly and we had a unique cultural exchange also learning about Latvian culture.

The last day she gave us a big surprise presenting a super nice video of the farm and life here.

Thank you very much for your wonderful contribution Ruta

Azem is a true gentleman and a breeze to host. He is always ready and well prepared to help in any way.

He approached the given tasks here with eager curiosity and determination. Cutting grass with sickle, weeding, compost management, coffee sorting, event photography, help in the house, was some of the things he did.

He is very friendly, sociable and good at telling stories from his life and homeland and we had an excellent work and cultural exchange.

Thank you very much Azem for your excellent contribution here.
