Beautiful place in the middle of nature, an experience to be had, highly recommended.

I had an amazing stay at the village! I made some great friends during my time there and also met many locals and experienced Thai culture. There is always work to be done, however, the work is self-driven and you won't be working in bad weather. Lele was very understanding if we wanted a day off to go to Khao Sok or anywhere else. The food was delicious and healthy. Fruits, veggies, and eggs were all from the farm. He cooked a mix of Italian and Thai food. The village is in the jungle so bring long pants and shirts, and bug spray!

One mont and a half in the project and I highly recommend to everyone this experience. You'll learn about permaculture and you'll be surrounded by nature every time. There are a lot of different tasks to do in the village so you will always have something to do, it's hard working with the sun but it's completely worth it, seeing how the village is improving Lele is an amazing chef (you're gonna try the best pineapples ever and the best pumpkin cream ever) and all the people I met in the village made my stance much better. They are amazing everyone ¡¡Bring enough mosquito repellent!!

Mangiareeeeeeeee! Spending a month in the middle of nature, working with people committed to the same purpose and learning about permaculture with Lele, was essential to make my experience even richer. The village is located in a relatively isolated region, but you will never feel alone if you are open to making new friends. The work is intense, as it is not a summer camp. So, if you are thinking of applying for this volunteer role, be aware that you will need to have a lot of energy. I already miss the wonderful food prepared by our Italian chef. I strongly recommend this place!

Living at Gaarawé Village is a must do experience that introduced me to the permaculture lifestyle and allowed me to meet local people. I didn't feel like a tourist but welcomed by everyone I met. You'll get back a different person after learning so much!
