Krishna Eco Farm

Krishna Eco Farm is based in a peaceful countryside next to the small historical town of Lesmahagow, originally started by monks. It is a relatively new project of the Hare Krishna spiritual community 'Karuna Bhavan' ('Sanctuary of Peace') that includes families, monastics and volunteers. It is being developed as a holistic spiritual centre, to help re-establish the sacredness of life. Our aim is to promote peace of mind and offer a positive alternative to the dominant consumerist and materialistic world view.

We invite you to experience an alternative lifestyle that benefits body, mind and soul and is based on the motto 'simple living, high thinking'. It is a unique chance to get out of the rat race, see things from a new perspective and ask yourself questions you might never have asked before.

We are making 1st steps, however in a long-term we are aiming for self-sufficiency. Being a new project, the eco-farm provides good opportunities for development and initiative. We invite volunteers to share their skills to develop this project. Eco Farm includes a walled garden, green houses, a meditation garden, energy saving technologies and an ashram for spiritual practices. If you prefer fruits over alcohol, fresh air over cigarettes, our famous vegetarian food over meat and would like to experience a detox retreat then the Krishna Eco Farm is for you!

We very highly value hospitality and treat all our guests and volunteers with care as we belong to Bhakti Yoga tradition that emphasises treating everyone nicely.

It’s been my first volunteer experience and I can’t wait to come back! The food is incredible, the rooms are really comfy, it’s easy to get there by bus, it’s a great opportunity to get to know local people and about Hare Krishna.
Īśāna is an incredible host, he’s kind, friendly and comunicative and does his best to make you feel at home, he’s always open to talk anytime you need.
Also there are amazing people in this place, getting to know more about their lifestyle has been an incredible oportunity.
Thank you for everything! I hope going back soon 💜 Hare Krishna ✨

I've made great memories here; it's a nice place to learn about another culture, mindset and have a lot of fun! Isana was always easy to speak with and so helpful. Regardless of some misunderstandings with the work hours, Isana has been quite flexible and understanding. In addition, this place, in particular, is not trying to capture you to their culture, they are so respectful and interested in responding to any questions you may have.
Many thanks for this opportunity, I've really enjoyed my time there👍🏿!

My experience on the farm was very nice. I liked all the activities especially planting flowers and feeding the alpacas. The food is really delicious and I felt at home cause everybody is so kind. If you want to have an experience out of the box I recommend this volunteer.
I want to thank all the monks and the team of volunteers I had the luck to share time with. Hare Krishna!

It was nice to connect with the nature, you will eat mostly vegetables and fruits growth in the same far which is really cool.

I must say that you’re never forced to join the extra activities related to the cult but you’re always welcome if you want to.

They have strict rules that you need to know and follow for daily coexistence, nothing out of this world but you need to be careful to stick to it.

I met really cool volunteers in there, without them this experience could have been really different.
