Agricultural Projects

Ecological Projects

Volunt2Thai is well integrated into the local community and the village council. As a volunteer you accompany a thai farmers family in their daily routine. This would include harvesting, sowing, fishing and many other seasonal activities like construction and crafts.This is a physical demanding task and the working day is long. The farmers have a very broad understanding of the nature that surrounds them and the sustenance that it can provide.

Your help supports the community and their families. In return, you will learn traditional knowledge from the Thai farm about house and field, garden, farmland, forest, culture and family, passed on for centuries. The Thai farmers themselves are your coaches, some at an advanced age with knowledge acquired over a lifetime.
