About Your Stay

The Kebun is situated west of Kuching City, the capital of Sarawak, long famous for it’s White Rajah. Nestled at the foot of the Serapi Mountain range it was craved out of jungle into what it is today, a thriving, working organic farm. The property boasts a huge range tropical fruit trees including both traditional and common herbs native to the tropic’s. The property also includes many domestic animals from Goats, Chickens, Ducks, Turkeys to Guinea Fowl. There is also two established fish ponds that have enough breeding stock to supplement our needs. Permaculture is a big part of the farms operation as it works towards establishing itself as the premier demonstration site for South East Asia.

Because the site has had several years of organic farm management with Permaculture type thinking, it is easy for students to simply walk out the door and see the principles of design in action. We will be evaluating the farm in the course for ways to push the permaculture envelope, contribute to its success through our hands-on practicals, and leave behind designs through the final design project. All of this will help increase its mission of spreading sustainable agriculture and preservation of ecological systems in Borneo that face many degradation pressures.

Meals ( included on the course )

Breakfast will be more continental serving farm fresh-baked bread, eggs, but expect a local breakfast alternative too with local dishes every few days.
