Sue Rae, New York

The PDC at Daruma was as thorough academically as I had hoped for and more, with plenty of opportunities to explore the practical application of much of what I was learning.  It is a fascinating place to come and learn about permaculture, both from a hands-on practical, and academic / theoretical point of view…Read more...

Coming Soon

Daruma Ecofarm is a permaculture designed educational Ecovillage that has existed for over 10 years and is now more able than ever to host world-class permaculture courses in Thailand

Thoughts On Indigenous Microorganisms

As a ‘natural’ input, IMO (Indigenous Microorganisms) can be made on site very inexpensively, or in the case of EM (Effective Microorganisms), purchased also very inexpensively. And a little, goes a long way.

Charcoal, Fire, Lye & Barbecuing

Charcoal has been used to make fires for thousands of years of human history. High temperatures made it useful in the Iron Age. High temperature & lack of smoke when burning, and higher energy density compared to wood, make it very attractive as a fuel for cooking.

Daruma

DARUMA ECOFARM IS A PERMACULTURE DESIGNED EDUCATIONAL ECOVILLAGE THAT HAS EXISTED FOR OVER 10 YEARS.

On-Site At Daruma Ecofarm

Take a video tour of Daruma, shot in 2015 by Jem Moore, award-winning director, musician, author, jet pilot, and all around Baroque kinda guy.

Things have developed considerably in the years after this shoot, and continue to do so.  The video still gives a good representation of some of the facilities, grounds and activities such as permaculture courses that take place at Daruma.

We are not a commercial farm meaning, Daruma is not purposefully engaged in the production of food products for sale. Rather, the central purpose of the farm is too provide an ecologically integrated, life-long learning environment. The production of farm products is therefore for pleasure, recreation, health, and learning. We do produce some organic fruits and vegetables as well as animal products and these are eaten by our family, staff, volunteers and students.

Above this, surplus can then be shared with friends and neighbors or sold. Daruma farm is not a ‘self-sufficiency’ farm but rather a way to practice self-reliance. We enjoy our relationship in the community as consumers and this also builds community resilience. We enjoy being involved in our local market as consumers and especially, Daruma and Mosaic volunteers enjoy the atmosphere of the nearby evening market.  You can find out more about Daruma here

Library

The privately curated library at Daruma Ecovillage is stocked with over 800 books either with ‘Permaculture‘ actually in the title, or books that are directly related to the topics covered in our Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Courses and Natural Building Courses.

You can see a selected listing of the books by following this link to the Library page, and on the Library page itself, we have provided you a link to the ‘Library Thing’ website, which we use to catalogue our books.  That can be searched, filtered and ordered if you would like to check if we have a specific title before your visit.

Volunteering, Internships, Apprenticeships

It seems incredible, but since 2007, we have hosted over 800 PDC Students, WWOOF Volunteers and Interns from more than 36 countries. Even as the project expands educational offerings that fund our operational expenses, in consideration of the generosity and spirit of the volunteers that have given time and energy to help build our farm, we strive to continue to offer excellent volunteer opportunities as a part of the Daruma initiative towards life-long education in sustainability.
