Going to TG for 6 months

My auntie lives in TG. Has done so for the past 12 years, whenever I visit I fall in love with the land and know one day I will live there.

I just arrived back two weeks ago; but planning on spending 6 months out there.

I would like to work and volunteer within the six months. Any advice would be great.

Kind regards

I emailed them a couple months ago about spending a weekend in the lodge at gunjur. I got no reply. No reply on phone either. Is the lodge closed?
