Since 2000, volunteers from all over the world have been participating in summer programs designed to improve the vegetable farm. During the last years we focused to improve more for the facilities of locals/ volunteers but not farming method and way. So when we look back in this moment our way to do farming and cultivating is not really productive and eco friendly. Even other farmers who doing same work around us are same. Local people work very hard for hall summer but in autumn they got very small harvest compare to their hard work. So since this year we going to develop our farm more as a training center of eco farming for the local people. Local people could learn in our center basic but very important ecological farming methods and know/how. We wish to achieve to get biggest amount of harvest, using smallest amount land. Volunteers will work in eco vegetable farm and develop eco farming training center. Vegetables from the eco farm will be donated to the low income (poor) local families.
To like farming/physical works and be flexible/ adaptable. Mongolian speakers are welcome!
