The majority of citizens there are farmers. They use traditional way of irrigation and farming. Valley is very hilly and famous for its mild climate, vegetables, forest and bamboo. Lowest temperature is 10-15 C.We built a house for volunteers 25 people capacity for let volunteers come and build the school. The House has a shower, toilet, kitchen, even WI-FI sometimes. 2 meals a day and accommodation are free of charge. Upon arrival in Kathmandu volunteer is greeted by curator of the project, and put to the guesthouse (1 night free of charge); then-to the bus to Jhaphe-6 Dolakha. In Jhapa he also meets with the curators of the project. All the Instructing will be given out on the site. 6 hours a day, volunteer must give to school.

Recently 12 man and women's are working happily at our farm. Kathmandu is capital of the country it has got plenty of fertile land but people are only building houses and covering land with concrete rapidly and its also has big market more than 40% of the population willing have organic foods but hardly 4% of them able to get organic. In the other hand helpless and uneducated farmers are being abused by pesticide and chemical traders so the land is getting toxicities so badly and health of poor farmers are getting extremely worst day by day. So we want to contribute to purify the land and improve health/wealth of the farmers. We have lots of volunteers work opportunities at our farm because we are doing most of the activities which is related with farm-trade-teaching-restaurant as so on.
