Using the tradition of working bees as the system of work, can have results, and can benefit many activities. For example, a group of 10 lynchee farmers determine a system to work together, including ploughing, plant lynchees, cutting grass, spray weeds, pruning. When it is time to work in one garden, then the other 9 farmers come to help. For example, on the 5th May 2001 they arrange to cut grass in Jakor's garden. The other members will go to help him. This will make working fun, there are friends so it iss not boring and the work is finished quickly, also you can use the same equipment. For example, ploughing. Not everyone needs to purchase a tractor, in one group one or two people with tractors is sufficient as they can help the other members plough their fields. The other members may help with petrol and it is using the maximum benefit of the tractor. Other members may have other equipment which is different and can be used by members of the group in exchange.
