Volunteering & Visiting
Thanks for your interest in the Thai Panacea Project. Whether it is to come and help out for a while, or simply to see the site, we would love to meet you.
Right now Thai Panacea is at a new start. We are a small community and we are in a growing process, trying to set the place up. We live Permaculture in our daily life and we are on the way to sustainable living.
Our Volunteering Policy
We are happy to host volunteers, who want to help and to give with all their heart.
If you are interested in volunteering, please read our whole policy and fill in our registration form for Volunteering.
We host courses and groups, during which the arrival of new volunteers is not possible. Please contact us and let us know your plans.
Our volunteer schedule begins regularly on Mondays. We work Monday to Friday, weekends are free time.
We highly recommend you join us for at least one week (Monday afternoon – Tuesday morning). This allows you to get familiar with the environment and gives us time to get to know each other.
We ask for a contribution of 2,500 THB (8 nights) for the first week. After that we will ask for 200 THB per day. The contribution will help to keep the Project running and is used for food, and other expenses, such as tools and materials.
We are not a guest house. Everyone is welcome, who is interested to join our activities and to help the project growing.
Currently we do not have any proper way to deal with plastic waste at Thai Panacea, so please try and limit the amount of plastic that you bring into the community, and please take the plastic waste with you when you leave .
Please bring only bio-degradable, non-toxic (no SLS, SLES and chemical additive) shampoo, soap and conditional or any cleaning product to Thai Panacea, we care for our land, and we do not want any chemical to contaminate the land, because we also grow food on the land and take water from the land. If you do not have them, it’s for sale at our store.
At the moment Thai Panacea do not have accommodation available for volunteers yet, all volunteers are camping on site. We are building the accommodation as we speak.
As we are located in Thailand we ask you to dress in an acceptable way for Thai culture when you arrive at Thai Panacea and during any outings to the city during your stay with us.
Getting to and from the farm is your own responsibility. You need to come to Thai Panacea by yourself. We may be able to pick you up from Muaklek mini van station (clock tower) if we are free. Please send us a message when you arrive.
Long Term Volunteers
At this time Panya consists of just a small core community and we are open to negotiating long term opportunities. If you are interested to apply, we ask you to commit to a stay of 2 months. Flight tickets, phone bills, visa and trips out of Thailand to renew your visa is at your own cost.
