We are relaunching our apprenticeship program soon!

A year has passed since we have been evicted from our beloved jungle home. Efforts to return had been futile given the political instability in our country.

Nevertheless, as we learned from nature : KEEP GROWING!
So that's what we did. We have been setting up a farm in an old palm oil plantation / durian orchard in Perak for the past year and now we have abundance of wholesome organic food from our garden.

So we are almost ready to restart and also offer a new design service for landowners. If you want to be notified with more information when we launch, please fill up the form. Thank you!!

The experience we gained from our decade long off-grid and sustainable approaches life in Lenggong had sprung a really positive surprise during this Covid pandemic.

Growing our own food, having our own source of water and space in nature to stay safe and productive has been a big blessing in disguise. πŸ™ #sustainableliving #RelaunchingSoon

We need your HELP on the grave injustice and unscrupulous dealings which resulted in our eviction. You can help us by raising a larger awareness of these latest updates.

We understand that landowners have right to evict occupants and tenants. We are clear of our rights and uphold our integrity to go through the necessary procedures required to get back the land.

BUT to be evicted after years of intimidation by the plantation (also leasing PKNP land) - physical, verbal and freely bulldozing our crops as they wished, we can't avoid thinking what is the real motivation behind our eviction.

Now it all makes sense.

Latest photo of Permaculture Perak in Lenggong, a sustainable living education project, featured on popular National Geographic Series, Living Free with Kimi Werner, is now a quarters for foreign workers by that neighbouring eucalyptus plantation.

Our collection of medicinal plants, trees, fruits and years of tending the land had been bulldozed and cleared. Rest of things were burnt to make way for these new 'owners'.

PKNP (Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Perak) evicted this project with the reason of unpaid rent which was PAID and yet rejected by them.

PKNP advised that to reapply for a new lease.
We obtained a formal go ahead from the previous Tourism State Exco to develop this land into a wildlife conservation research center, sustainable education center with collaborations with ASEAN universities and setting up a gibbon experience tour.

And when the application was submitted in December 2019, they informed us in February 2020 that they have insufficient Board of Directors to approve our application. They have confirmed at February 2020 that there was no other application for the same land too.
They have not responded to our emails, calls or letters since.

Since now the company had taken over our previous farmstay buildings, have they given out a new contract to them? Do they receive the rightful rental for occupying the land?

In our lawyer's last land search, Pejabat Tanah dan Galian Perak could not locate the land's lot number as stated in the court eviction documents. The land had another corresponding lot number which had a status of "diserah balik" meaning the land had been returned to the State government, the landowner is not stated as PKNP.

Further investigation at the Land Office also showed that there was no current ongoing application to change the ownership.

If you had visited us, we are sad to inform you that new expanded land clearing uphill had ruined the pristine and sparkling clean water of our jacuzzi stream.

We feel humbled by the continuous visitor enquiries despite our forced closure due to the eviction by the Perak State Government.

Today our local friends who are checking in on our old place has informed us that this heavenly spot where more than thousand of people came to be touched and in awe with this beauty....

Is now occupied by foreign workers of the neighbour's plantation (in our farm stay rooms!) Do they have a new contract? Will they get evicted?

Our continuous followups with our application for the land hasn't been replied or acknowledged.

Once a National Geographic story, our old farmstay now has turned into a drug den. (as informed by a neighbor farmer) We have no rights to make a police report either.

To each and everyone who has visited, stayed and learned with us in the past 10 years, we hope that you have gained resilience and inspiration during your stay in these #covid19 times.

We are truly blessed for all the times that we couldn't leave our jungle farm because the rains didn't stop and our cars got stuck in the mud, which then taught us the importance of a well-stocked pantry.

For the daily reminder that when one is the presence of nature, boredom never arises.

We hope you are taking these times to seed some vegetables, knead some of the jungle bread we shared together and reminisce on the memory when you were once off-grid in the jungle and never once felt isolated.

Take care, stay safe and stay strong!

Our warmest greetings to you.

Watch the actual footage of serious erosions after deforestation! Lenggong town suffered several big floods after land clearings on the hillslopes of Bintang Hijau Forest Reserve.

After this video, we launched a report with SUHAKAM on the violation of human rights to clean water. The outcome, the relevant agencies either said it was not their jurisdiction because the land is privately owned by the Perak State agency or they have informed the project operators or they are waiting for a response.

Back in 2012 when we received our first eviction notice from PKNP, this was happening just next to our project. To witness this destruction and keep quiet was not right for us. So we began highlighting this matter to several government agencies. That was when the harassment, our crops were burnt and the bullying continued for the next 8 years.
