Hello everyone! - Ayubowan everyone!
My name is Lahiru. Pleased to meet you!
I run a family organic farm, located in Pitawala.(knuckles mountain range)
In our farm, we cultivate vegetables and herbs.
We sell our products mainly to local markets / supermarkets, and also to local people living around the farm.
My uncles, my aunts, my mum and I run the organic farm since August 2014. It was a 'normal' farm before.
We all have ecological and agriculture focuses. Indeed, the agriculture ideology is in our blood for generations. I developped the organic concept a few years back.
A few months ago, we started to have some organic eggs. We are trying to improve the sector.
We are now looking for people who are able to share their knowledge about:
- organic agriculture,
- or agriculture, in general,
- or any ecological system(s).
In our farm, we already have a solar panel, a compost system...
In exchange, I offer an accommodation (up to 3 people), plus 3 meals a day to our volunteer(s). The accommodation is located near Rattota but the transportation is provided from the house to the farm.
Basically, we ask our volunteer to work 4-5 days a week.
Sri Lanka is a beautiful country, so, you can enjoy some journeys while you have some free time. I will be happy to help you to plan your trip, of course.
Contact me for any further information.
Talk to you soon!
