Eco Community Sri Lanka
We are creating a community education centre based on biodiversity, permaculture, self-sustainability, low-impact and eco-tourism in Thennakoongama in Sri Lanka.Background
The Eco-Community is situated in a farming village, Thennakoogama in the dry zone area of the Kurunegala District of Sri Lanka. This area is blessed with natural resources, generally unexpected of a dry zone with plenty of water and wood. The area is set within the old Yapahuwa Kingdom of the Sinhala Kings with the huge isolated rocks of Yapahuwa and Nagala at a distance. The farm village is situated at two water reservoirs - the Hakwatuna Oya and Nikawewa. Because of these water resources, this ecological farm is naturally blessed with rich soils, varieties of plants and trees.
How it worksWe have a small office for the eco community farm and all the working volunteers are unpaid. The web site is also updated by volunteers. All the membership’s fees and donations are going towards the development of the eco community. You can join with us either through WWOOFLK, Workaway or Eco community
If you have any questions about volunteering or would like to learn more about the farm, please contact us
