The project is mainly construction based, like welding, cutting metal, painting, working with PVC pipes, some electrical engineering, structural engineering and a certain level of general handiness. If you do not have experience or specified skills in these areas, it's not a problem at all, you can assist me in completing the tasks and/or I can teach you these skills :) (time permitting, of course)
The project does not require any kind of traditional farming skills, but since hydroponics requires very little space (even at our scale) the rest of the farm is used to grow fruits and vegetables, so any help that you wish is give is appreciated by my family.
The farm’s main activities is split into two functions. One is the commercial, organic, hydroponics development project, and the other is the traditional Cambodian farming living. In essence, they work together symbiotically to help promote growth in each sector. For instance, since the hydroponics sector needs to have organic fertilizer, we are able to harvest the necessary ingredients to make our own organic fertilizer from the waste and excess produces from the traditional farming sector of the farm. We would have access to various animal manure, food waste and local plants to make organic fertilizer.
On the farm itself, located in Kampang Speu province. We are close to Kirirom National Park, 2 km south of Trang Trayerng market, on Highway 43.
The work days are from Monday to Friday, we will have the weekends free, which you can do whatever you like. Feel fee to head over to Kirirom National Park (we're only 15 moto ride away), take trips out to the islands at Sihanoukville (2hr bus ride away), head back to Phnom Penh to see the sights (2hr bus ride), check out Kampot (my personal fav), see Angkor Wat at Siem Reap or any of the wonderful experiences of Cambodia. If requested, I can be your weekend tour guide, I always enjoy showing people around this beautiful country of mine. If not, you're welcome to explore Cambodia on your own.
I will try my best arrange travel to and from the farm in person, and assist in any travel and accommodations for any weekend trips you'd want to take. I will probably be traveling with you to and back from the farm, so I'll be there right alongside. We will be traveling from Phnom Penh to the farm, so we will have to meet in Phnom Penh.
There is a $3 a day charge for food, but accommodations and services are all free.
