LK Chettri

Local farmer and resident of Gorubathan, he is the man at large working right beside Sidhartha and Sweta. He looks after the gardens and property, and is gradually learning the permaculture ways.

Tommy Kukkur

Is a stray, looks like a handsome husky, lives with all of us, can be found anywhere, eats at every household, should be a guard dog but is too friendly to be one and is truly our home dawg as is evident by its local suffix ‘kukkur’ which in literal Nepali translation means ‘dog’!


He runs and cooks in the farm kitchen along with his lovely wife Sofia. They’re all about warm meals and warm smiles.

It is not possible to mention all the rest of the beautiful souls who contribute towards making our experiences fun, creative and wholesome including all our delightful kids who bring so much grace, laughter and abundance to our community. That being said, we are committed to building a space where each person feels valued and is able to make their best contribution towards improving their own lives, their family’s, the community’s and our planet Earth.
