How can you run an Eco Resort and Leisure Farm design course if you don’t have an Eco Lodge? That was our thoughts at Green Warrior Field School when we decided to build more accommodation on our site.
Our new building can house 20 students for courses or 10 long-term trainees. We have future plans for 3 more lodges, each with a different style.
Our building is made from local bamboo and has a nipa palm thatched roof. Our walls look like masonry but they are plastered woven bamboo strips rendered with a mixture of mud, coco fibre, sand, rice husk ash and cement as a binder. What is the mixture ratio? Come to our course and find out.
Our first visitor to the Shangri-La Eco Lodge was Ms Chou and her daughter Pricilla. Actually Ms Chou is one of our Taiwanese trainees mother who was coming over to check up on her son Toto. Toto has had an amazing personal transformation since joining us 7 months ago, but that’s another story…
We have a great productive permaculture farm, which includes a couple of hectares of organic rice and some vegetable production areas. Our native black pigs are free range (you can pat them!) and we also raise native chickens (you can pat them too!). Trainees will enjoy our organic meals including our famous Ting’s wood-fired pizza.
If you the kind of tourist that likes to laze by the pool and sip your Mai Tai then forget coming to Green Warrior!
Our visitors are coming to learn all kinds of permaculture skills and get involved in the day-to-day activities at our field school. We have, not only organic farming and gardening, but also visitors can visit local bat caves, trek up a mountain, hike to a waterfall and motorbike to our local zip line for a ride across a jungle valley. We are a friendly bunch and our local community are even friendlier. Come and check out the Green Warrior Eco-Farm in Mablad, Barbaza, Antique in the Philippines.
I promise you an adventure!
