Permaculture Retreat

I have been wondering how to run my coming retreat.  One of my ideas is to do it as a permaculture village + retreat.

To run as a permaculture village is not easy, it needs someone to be there full time, and I don't think I can do that for now.  As of this, I am considering opening part of the land as a permaculture village to the enthusiasts.  You are welcome to stay for free in return of your work & knowledge.  You will need to work towards of building the village up in a sustainable way.  I will support you monetarily with the materials & supplies.  Does it sound good & fair?  Drop me an email to further discuss.

Boutel Retreat is coming soon

We have finally found a piece of orchard land, and are brainstorming on ideas of what to build, to do and how to run it.  If you are interested, please feel free to contribute your ideas, knowledge or to join us in building our retreat.

Basically here are the ideas that I have for this retreat:
- eco friendly
- somehow sustainable in design
- fruit forest & kitchen garden
- very unique building design, the more crazy the better.
- we intend to build the cabins ourselves, so we will need someone who share the same interest to join us.

The land is nice, and is currently a durian orchard.  There are quite a variety of fruits already growing there, we intend to add more.  There is a river that runs through the land, and water is crystal clear.  We want to build a natural swimming pool in the river!  There is also a forest reserve next to our land and it is on a hill, so hiking into the hill is possible.  We will need hikers to help create a hiking trail.

We are excited, and we can't wait to get it done asap.  Hopefully, by June 2015 we can host you guys there.

If you are an architect, farmer, artist, and etc, and you think you can help us, or we can help you, please contact us,
