I had a great time at the project and was able to learn and have insights in various different tasks that have to be done on the property. One day you are a road builder the other day you cut off tree's and the next day you deconstruct a wooden pavilion in Gold Coast. The vision that Andi has for the project is inspiring and has a lot of potential! You should definitely give it a go and maybe you will stay longer than you have imagined ;)

I have had the best time and learned so much over the past 6 weeks at the project! The hosts Mod and Andi were warm, welcoming, generous, and clear about expectations. We shared many delicious meals and fun times together. They taught me so much about environmental impact and permaculture. I gained many new skills and the experience was truly one that helped me grow, learn, and I will remember this time in the beautiful tropical rainforest FOREVER! A very magical place with rich history.

Unforgettable experience! This place is a paradise, perfect for immerse into nature. The dome, have a magical atmosphere but all the more, this place is mystical because of its inhabitants! Mod and Andi are amazing hosts, passionate about what they have been building and planting for several years. Andi has incredible knowledge and Mod cooks so well. I really enjoyed the conversations we all had together after work. Every day was a joy to go to work : permaculture garden projects, construction projects based on second hand. These projects are carried out with passion and out of the system!

Yes, you are one of the reasons why we have volunteers. Eager to soak up new experiences, keen to learn, passionate, witty, and easy to be with. thanks, Clarisse for all the hard work and fun times we had together! come back! We already miss you!



The project is an adventure for those seeking to get out of their comfort zone and learn about themselves, and nature and get to know a wonderful group of human beings trying to achieve a vision that started almost 30 years ago. This has been genuinely fascinating for me and I am sure I won't forget this experience. Thanks to all the wonderful people that were part of it.
