Description: During the last years we focused to improve more for the facilities of locals/ volunteers but not farming method and way. So when we look back in this moment our way to do farming and cultivating is not really productive and eco friendly. Even other farmers who doing same work around us are same. Local people work very hard for hall summer but in autumn they got very small harvest compare to their hard work. So since this year we going to develop our farm more as a training center of eco farming for the local people. We wish to achieve to get biggest amount of harvest, using smallest amount land. Volunteers will work in eco vegetable farm and develop eco farming training center. Vegetables from the eco farm will be donated to the low income (poor) local families.
Type of Work: Main works are planting vegetables such as potato, carrot, radish etc at the eco farming camp. Also making water canal for farm, making compost etc. Quite tiring but let's enjoy it.
Study Theme: Eco farming methods/know how of other countries. The future plan of international workcamps etc.
Accommodation: Summer house or Mongolian traditional tents which is GER (traditional tent). SB! Cooked by Volunteers with a local staff.
Language: Camp language is English. If you don't speak English well please don't worry. Many volunteers come to camp to improve their English.
Requirements: To like farming/physical works and be flexible/ adaptable. Mongolian speakers are welcome!
Approximate Location: 45 km from Ulaanbaatar. Place name is “BUHUG”. The sight is just unbelievably beautiful, typical Mongolian plain.
Notes: Don't worry about the weather and it will be around 15-20 degree hot. But still sometimes weather could be changed quite. Also during the free days of the workcamp we will help you to organize some cultural exchange programs, excursions, etc
