Hello beautyful people!!
Here on the island lives Nico from the US since some years. He is the coordinator of a huge Permaculture project that includes the whole island. Its all in the beginning right now. We started with an organic garden in Thong Sala at the Chai-Hotel. There are many projects going to be realised like vertical gardening, eco-tourisem, roof greening, environmental education and so on.
If you wanna travel to Thailand and do some volunteering here, this is a beautyful possibility doing it. Nico needs helping hands.
Ko Phangan is a beautyful small paradise island with waterfalls, jungle, beautyful plants, trees and flowers, and amazing animals (so much butterflys here, some as huge as birds). Much sun, blue sky, beautyful clouds, white sand and water in all kinds of blue. As well as many possibilitys to do Yoga in yoga schools (The Yoga retreat, Pyramid Yoga, Orion, Agama,...), Reiki, Shiatsu, Bellydance and much more people offer here as workshops, sometimes for free.
People volunteer 20 hours per week and get hotel accomodations for free. The hotel is beautyful and clean, i was in there. It is located at the waterfront of Thong Sala with an awesome view to the sea.
Nico is very thankful for every support.
All kind of fruits are here like papaya, bananas, pineaple, different kinds of mango, mangosteen, rambutan, melon, watermelon, durian, jackfruit, lychee, cempedag, mandarin, dragonfruit, longan, longkong coconuts and some more.
It is a bit more expencive then on the mainland, but even here are people who drive around with their trucks sailing fruits and there you can get 3 kilo of mango for 100 bath (2.50 euro, 3.20 dollar us)
If you feel like, just get in touch with Nico!
Wishing you all the best,

Wow! What an amazing opportunity! I'll see what im doing next year.
Thank You :~)
That's a fantastic opportunity. Though I will have to see next year after I am finished with my apprenticeship as well as checking on how I could manage financially.
The project is just in the beginning, so also next year and in the next years Nico needs help!!
That's good to know. Thank you!
Hey, I'd love to help out if I can, I will be in Koh Phangan on the 14 or 15th June, but I only have a few days to spare - is it still possible to help out with the limited time that I have?
Yes, of course :) Nico is thankful for every helping hand! The garden there is growing every day and needs attention and care, you are welcome to be there :o)
Great, I'll turn up at that hotel as soon as I get to the island then :) Thanks very much! xx
The Hotel is next to the pier. If you arrive, go to the right side :) Thank you too!
