The Experience

Our eco farm is opened to all worldpackers who would like to join us in our mission. We need help with our organic garden, maintenance and also decorating it with art. There is a lot to do and I'm sure if you come with an open heart, you'll be able to learn and also teach us a lot. We kindly ask volunteers to contribute with USD 8 per day to cover expenses with food.

Varsana was a great place to stay for 2 weeks! The work included cooking, cleaning and taking out weeds in the farm. The yoga activities are the best and good for beginners as well as more advanced people. Just be sure that you are okay with a little colder temperature and I'm sure you'll have a great time. The people of Varsana are like family!

I stayed only 1 week in Varsana, but since the first day I loved it. Everything in Varsana is beautiful; the place, the people, the food! I learned so many things and I am very grateful with everyone in Varsana for giving me an awesome experience! If I ever come back to Colombia, I will definitely return to Varsana!

Gracias Premi por todo! Fue una experiencia hermosa!

Yoga lessons are the best thing they offer i'm my opinion.

Food is not that good as it has a lot of carbs and sugar. Communication is poor and you need to keep on asking about things that are supposed to be set like meals, or yoga lesson times and yet they get delayed. Sometimes they lack the required tools to do a job so the job gets 10 times harder.

The place has a lot of potential only if they organize themselves a little bit better. There are good walks around and you get to meet other volunteers. They are also very kind and open. You can go to their religion-related activities
