This was my first experience at worldpackers and I highly recommend it. The host Ramai is very friendly and always asked if we were ok and if we had eaten. If you want to experience Hare Krishna culture, learn gardening skills, stay near London and at the same time connected with nature, this place is for you. Thank you Ramai and KC for the experience.

The experience at Gokul Farm was our first volunteer and we highly recommend it. The place is very beautiful and easily accessible from London via train. We got to know a little about Hare Krishna philosophy and culture, we tried different food (Indian), in some places there were fruits and breads available for the volunteers, and the hosts were always questioning whether we are ok and whether we liked the meal. In the farm work we did several things such as harvesting spinach, weeding the beans, gardening and others tasks. Thank you Ramai for this experience. We definitely recommend.

For a person like me... it is a culture shock, the treatment of people, the food, the customs. I am very happy with the experience, it helps you open your mind, to appreciate things that you didn't appreciate before. To wake up a little more. I met wonderful people, like brothers!! Many thanks to the leadership team, they are always there for whatever you need and are very friendly.The community welcomes you as one of its own! If you have any specific questions, you can write to me and I will detail them.

It was my first volunteering and I loved it, I even wanted to stay longer. I enjoyed the tasks assigned to me, work time is respected and the food is delicious, although it was difficult at first because it is spicy but then I got used to it. There I met volunteers from different countries and at night we did different activities There I met volunteers from different countries and at night we did different integration activities. Thank you very much for this experience.
