We are an organic and biodynamic farm-based education center in Huizhou, which is close to Shenzhen, Hongkong and Guangzhou . By sharing the lifestyle of the countryside, it enables city dwellers, especially children, be nourished and healed in the beauty of nature. It teaches people agriculture and rural ecology, so that they can better understand the source of their food and nutrition. It shows people how to make arts and crafts out of native natural materials so that they can experience the beauty of nature, and can begin to treasure the environment and all of its resources. They get a sense of what life in the countryside is like by learning about the local culture here. They can learn some environmentally friendly "green" practices to take back home with them. They can also get closer to people and the nature around. With the help of all these experiences, people get nourished and healed.

- Message to WWOOFers:
My name is Weihe Hu, I have been worked as a gardener and gardening class teacher at Chengdu Waldorf School for many years, and I have done a course about Biodynamic and organic agriculture for two years in England. After working as consultant for 4 years, I decided to go back to my home, Huizhou, a city next to Guangzhou and Shenzhen.
I started my own organization, Tian Yuan Bang Field Center. We offer weekend courses for children and adults, and summer winter camp as well. T Y B Field Center is base at a community supported organic farm, with rolling hills, and a river running through. This is a Hakka village, the hometown of Yap Ah Loy, the Founder of modern Kuala Lumpur,
You will see lots of tradition Hakka building in this village.
We have ranted some old building, and we would love to transform that into our new meeting hall and workshop classrooms, such for field kitchen, woodwork, clay modeling, pottery and art .
You are welcome to join us.We would love to learn from you and see what we can do together.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
