Program Details

We are searching for someone to join us in our vision to continue building an off-grid sustainable community. We receive many volunteers with building skills and we need someone to guide them and manage the projects from the beginning until the end. We offer you the opportunity to live here for free and make this your new home. You’ll be able to use a workshop full of tools (everything from a tractor to welding equipment and more), plenty of space for self-expression and creativity and a global community of volunteers that continuously sign up for helping out.


Activities & Shift


- Managing a group of people
- Communicating and working to timeline
- Sourcing sustainable materials
- Being generally handy ( and if a skill misses you know how to get the required skill in your team)
- If you know of a helper with the useful skill to assist the work (e.g builder, mechanic, painter, etc) invite them to the Catfarm to use their abilities
- Make your own team! You don't need to have all the skills in order to complete all building projects
