Program Details

- Some helpers assist us by preparing juices, helping with cleaning after juices and with cooking.

- Some helpers tend to focus more on the gardens and ground where we follow the organic principles of synergistic gardening & permaculture. There are over 40 mature varieties of fruit & nut trees alone. We currently need help on our grounds to assist in new eco-projects, tree & vegetation maintenance & to increase food production yields.

- Often you might do a variety of both tasks!

We provide:

Your own individual or shared room (We provide all linens and towels)
The bathrooms are shared by volunteers.
The food is vegan or vegetarian and cooking is shared by all volunteers.
We have free Wi-fi. There is one shared computer in the living room, but you're welcome to bring your laptop.
There is a staff car sometimes available for use on your days off, but please don't rely on this.

Activities & Shift

4 weeks is minimum application (except in exceptional circumstances!) 6 weeks is much better for us, 8 weeks is maximum!

Sometimes it's possible to extend longer too!


Interest in holistic wellness preferred. As a place where people come to relax and cleanse away from their normal chaotic lives, we want to create a peaceful ambiance, where people can build their consciousness without distraction or undue toxicity. With this is mind, we don't allow drinking alcohol on site (except on special occasions), drugs are strictly prohibited and non smokers are strongly preferred. We are relaxed but not a party atmosphere - more meditative, to support the guests experience. This type of energy isn't for everyone, we are away from the town so you need to be comfortable out in nature and in your own space.
