The SpacePetrichor is a quasi volunteer based farm cum Artist Residency, kitchen and studio community which welcomes like-minds and free spirits. We are still young but we definitely know which way to grow!
Our Food Forest is evolving and we welcome people who want to put more energy and love into it!
We encourage our friends and guests to participate in farm activities as a volunteer. If you combine your stay with the volunteer program, meals come free!
Guest AccessEach of the small farmers living in our community is unique. Some grow vegetables, some grow flowers and plants, others cultivate millet and grains, some harvest small scale organic honey and fruits.
However, the farm is a source of much more than just food and fiber. It is a large part of the Nepalese culture and our heritage. This is where we come from and this is where we’ll eventually go back to. Spend some time on a Darjeeling Farm and you will find another world, one of peace, purpose, nature and amazing, healthy home style cooking!
