Project hosted by
Since 2000, volunteers from all over the world have been participating in summer programs designed to help/improve the vegetable farm of Childcare Center of Mongolia (Orphanage). But last 4 years orphanage decided to not continue their farming work because of lack of human resource and availability of land for farming. Since 2017 our organization managed to rent farming land for the Orphanage and they started their farming work on this land again. So our cooperation will start again on their farm since 2018. So one of international volunteers work will be helping for farming of the orphanage.
Same time we do run small eco farm in same area to improve the method of eco friendly farm and help to poor families trough our work. 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 farm of eco farming for the local people. Local people could learn at our farm basic but very important ecological farming methods and know/how. 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 farm. Vegetables from the eco farm will be donated to the low income (poor) local families.
We will pick all the volunteers up from airport or train station according to their request. Also we will drive them to/from between Ulaanbaatar and workcamp site by our own bus.
To like farming/physical works and be flexible/ adaptable. Mongolian speakers are welcome!
