arture is open to volunteers of all interests and ages.
most volunteers contact us through our host profiles on helpx and workaway.
we can also be reached at http://www.facebook.com/houseofarture or firstname.lastname@example.org
volunteering at arture involves 4-5 hours of work on a normal day in exchange for free lodging and food that’s cooked together in our communal kitchen.
we are currently working on transforming a 6000sqft clearing which we will use to build container cabins for volunteers to stay. at the moment, our priority will be establishing structures for basic living. construction on the cabin will begin soon. there is no electricity at the moment (we are looking at installing solar panels or getting electricity pulled to the land). there is an outdoor shower, and a kitchen in progress.
we are currently living in our home, about 10 minutes away from the land. internet is available here and volunteers for the time being are living with us here. there are 2 shared rooms with 4 people to a room.
as we are in the set up/learning phase of this venture, it would be of great help to host volunteers with skills and experience in
– basic construction.
current projects include building
– cabin from shipping container frame.
– dining area/hall.
– bamboo/wooden huts.
– garden beds for growing vegetables.
we look forward to welcoming you into our family, the malaysian way and hope the bonds we build will continue to grow beyond the time you spend here.
volunteers can stay as long as they want 🙂
