As a volunteer visitor you get the opportunity to join us at DinDang Living Home. Depending on the week and weather, we are sometimes working on a mud building, making furniture with bamboo, preparing for a workshop, chopping wood/bamboo for the clay oven and cooking, gardening and landscaping or sitting around sipping tea or our freshly roasted coffee grown on the DinDang Permaculture land discussing our new ideas while sowing and stuffing cushions out of our used plastic bags.
