Developing an organic garden in a Buddhist pagoda in Vietnam

  • Volunteer Opportunity posted by CADIP




Short-Term (few weeks/months)


Ho Chi Minh City


The aim of this project is to provide an opportunity for volunteers to experience organic farming in Vietnam. This organic farm is inside a Buddhist pagoda in the outskirt of Ho Chi Minh City. The monks who live in the pagoda take care of about 10 orphan children and 20 homeless elderly people. The project aims at making use of uncultivated land in the pagoda to grow vegetables which are an important source of food for the monks, children, and seniors living here. Usually, almost all of their food is donated, and they only buy tofu for the meals. Having an organic vegetable garden, they can provide themselves with healthier and more diverse foods. More importantly, this garden lessens their food expenses.

The farm in the pagoda is new, yet full of potential. Two kinds of farming can be carried out here: organic vegetable farming and herb farming.

Duration of the project: 2 weeks to 12 months. Please select the dates that work best for you and submit them with your application.
