New Project starting in Bali April 2012

Posted by Chris Mansergh almost 3 years ago

Volunteers sought to help set up new "live and learn" permaculture project in beautiful but ecologically challenged area of Bali.

We have located a stunningly beautiful but ecologically/agriculturally depleted area of Bali, on the Bukit Peninsula, which is badly in need of restoration. We're looking for volunteers to come and help us commence this new permaculture project starting from scratch, from disused, trampled dry earth up! Anyone up for a real challenge???

Aiming to partner with a poor local farming family with disused land (lots of it here), and convert it into a productive family farm over a 5 year period. We are currently identifying suitable candidates and lands, with the project due to commence in mid April 2012.

This will be a non-profit, self funding project, that will exist solely on the limited  funds typically available to a poor farming family, to ensure that it is truly viable for other poor Balinese farmers to adopt the model we create. So we'll be practising and demonstrating only permaculture-based, sustainable farming practises that are appropriate to the socio economic level of typical Balinese farmers.

We have a dire shortage of permaculture volunteers here in Bali. We're looking for enthusiastic volunteers who'd like a challenge, ready to learn by doing, level of experience not important. Be prepared to self fund. As a guide, your financial contribution should not exceed what you would otherwise spend on rent in a cheap surfie dive! This is a beautiful part of Asia, literally a stone's throw from the most amazing, unspoilt, undeveloped white sand beaches in Bali.

Marco Di Dio : Hi Chris, my name is Marco and I'm pretty new to this website. I'm really interested in your project and Because I will be in indonesia in the next few months I was wondering if there is any chance to volunteer for your project for a while. Could you send me more details about it? Thank you Marco

Jason Gooding : I will be in Ubud on the 27th. Just found this site, and I'll be in country till April 18th, with the possibility of extending my stay on inspirations' whim. I'd be glad to take a look at the project and see where I could niche myself in. I'm novice in my permaculture instruction, but hard work is no problem. Looking for adventure and activity.

Sean Powderly : Chris! I met you in Avalon a year ago, you were heading out of St George bank and planning to live in Canggu. Haha! I'd love to come visit and help out with your permaculture project in July. Hopefully learn a few things as well. Where exactly are you in Bukit? I will only have a day or 2 free to help you with things this year... but next year I'm thinking of moving to Bali for a while! I'd be grateful for any advice and wisdom you could share - Sean

Helen Jezeph : Hi, I'm working/living in china for a year but have two weeks break from my job in december and doesn't seem to make sense to go all the way back to the UK for a grey, cold xmas and have wanted to come back to Bali for a long time, but I want to get involved with a project there. I'll only have two weeks to spare but am keen to do some woofing or get involved with a permaculture project rather than just lie on the beach. Will you be lookign for volunteers then at all? 18th dec - 1st jan are my dates off from work....

Chris Mansergh : Thanks for all the comments and participation people. Our projects in Bali have now finished and we have asked for the project pages to be removed, which they have been. These updates remain, but are now defunct, so sorry for any confusion. We are still in Indonesia as of July 2013 and will make further updates if we get involved in anything else. Peace all.
