Rural Jungle Backpackers Hostel
It's a place for different workshops to be run, we have a bakery included in the resort where many local people shop and are just about to start a small organic farm in the backyard.
We are looking forward to meeting interesting people and to learning a variety of things such as organic farming, sustainable building, forest conservation, butterfly farming, water conservation, bakery, eco-resort, advertising the place through the internet etc.
Furthermore, we are starting a campaign to save the Rainforest (see information below) through awareness-raising as a first step. Therefore we are especially looking for people who would like to take part in that, e.g. go to schools and talk to the kids about the importance of the topic, create games to get them involved...
Apart from that, there will be plenty of time to explore the surroundings by bike or on foot. There are plenty of waterfalls nearby to swim in, nature, rice paddies and tea plantations to hike through and of course the Rainforest National Park - a paradise for nature lovers!

The rainforest in Sri Lanka is threatened.
This is a World Heritage Site, although protected by Unesco. Still it is getting smaller every year and in 20 years many animal species will get extinct if the cutting of trees for tea will continue in this pace.
We are looking for people who are willing to take ownership of the tasks to fulfill and having a lot of freedom to organise themselves accordingly.
