Akirah garden

We moved to our land about 5 years ago near the forest mountains, 25 km east of Chiang Mai city. Having lived in the city but traveled a lot, we are now settling down more and try to grow our own food, medicinal plants, building wooden and bamboo houses, making our own cleaning products, filtering our own water , composting recycling all our wastes.

If you're interested in wooden building, organic farming, Thai cooking, and yoga, you're welcome to stay with us. There are bamboo bungalows and private wooden rooms for our volunteers . Our place is also close to San Kamphaeng Hot Spring, Muang On cave, Crazy Horse rock climbing, etc.
Our comfortable wooden and bungalow rooms ( mostly private rooms), yoga classes ,limitless wifi ,laundry,a bicycle ,water & other drinks, and a fridge always ready with fruits etc..are free for short term volunteers.
Please ask for the details about "food contrubition" ; how to get, buy , harvest, cook in the farm. Because it all depends on seasons and how much we grow throughout the year.
And for long term volunteers we provide everything including all 3 meals a day for free too .Because we recieve more efficient help from them.
We consider long term volunteering for at least 3 months, and long termers should have some farming, natural building experience & skills. Please ask for other details for volunteering long term in our farm.
Our target is to be totally self sufficient in our small farm about food , water , shelter , medicine , energy etc..We are not a commercial farm so we are not growing large scale if vegetables and fruits to sell outside for money. So we and our volunteers have many free times.A couple of hours help a day is enough for us.. Suha goes to rock climbing 2 days a week and hikes to the mountain once a week. Volunteers are always welcome to join him for these epic outdoor activities.

We have minimum stay of 8 days.

And besides the all work, we enjoy our time with sharing our knowledges&experiences with volunteers together. Take this place not like a hard working mono-culture farm but a little learning center with the harmony in the nature and with self sufficiency in love..We believe , for a better planet , for more real life, and free & independent future, all of us can start to act and learn..

Our volunteers can expect to be treated like our friends ;) We are a small community. Millie has moved in with me and deals with the admin and messages to volunteers. We are both very friendly :)

That was an amazing experience among amazing people!! Suha and Millie are really good hosts. Me and my girlfriend were at the farm during the dry season, so there was not a lot of work, but hosts provided us amazing activities around the farm eg. climbing or swimming in an amazing lake!
I recommend this volunteer work to every open-minded person!
Compost toilet is the best!

Our stay at the farm was the highlight of our Thailand trip. The time we spend there and the people we met were amazing. Suha and Millie are great hosts who take care of the volunteers and create a family atmosphere. They took us for some activities too, like climbing and cave visiting. It was an unforgettable experience!

It was a good experience! We didn't have much work to do, so we had plenty of time to relax and explore the area. Every day, we got together for yoga sessions, which helped us recharge our bodies and minds. Plus, we went rock climbing a few times, which was a blast!
It was great getting to know new people and bonding over our shared experiences.
Thank you Suha and Millie.

Volunteering at Akirah garden was one of the highlights of my trip! Suha and Millie were so welcoming and created a wonderful place for travelers to find a home away from home in Thailand. They took great care of us volunteers and taught me so much - I especially loved the morning yoga and learning how to rock climb. Very grateful for this experience, I miss the farm already <3
