The Experience

We are looking for those with a true interest, and or experience in gardening and farming to help us as we continue to rebirth our farm land. We are working with small crop fields and various no dig pocket gardens and experimenting with various bio ways to create the friendliest of natural food environments. If you would like to join this team, be prepared for hot weather! We also keep rescue farm animals so let us know if you love animals!

We had an amazing time assisting on the farm, situated amidst stunning mountains in a remote area where the sunsets are absolutely breathtaking. During the peak season, we lent a hand in the kitchen, and it was a fantastic experience! We had the chance to explore our culinary creativity and learned valuable skills. We met great people and had an amazing experience. Special thanks to Shawn and Kyle for their warm hospitality! Wishing them all the best for the upcoming seasons :)

We really enjoyed our stay at the project. It was our first volunteering experience, and it turned out to be a really fulfilling learning opportunity. We were able to cook with Shawn at the restaurant and help set up multiple beautiful events. Once the hotel season ended, we got to get our hands dirty on the stunning farm. We were grateful to extend our stay and during our time at the farm we created numerous cherished memories, forged new friendships, and acquired valuable skills. Leaving this incredible place is not easy. Shawn and Kyle, thank you for your warm hospitality!

I enjoyed my time at the project at its fullest. If you need some time to calm down your mind and get in touch with nature (plants and animals) and if you want to get out of busy and loud cities, this is the right place for you! The work was very diverse and i could learn a lot about animals, farming and growing plants. I hope to see you again!

I arrived when they were unbelievably busy with the Villa opening. My duty is to take care website, FB and IG. I usually build websites with WordPress. It's my first time checking website build with Wix, so I have learnt something new too. And I have learnt something while they would like me to check the powerline wifi extender. The weather is very hot, no joke, and if you want to be a volunteer, make sure you can accept insects around you. Luckily, some Italian volunteers usually cook delicious food for all volunteers. And 24-hour hot coffee, the Italian way.

Krishna is a sweet soul who was always eager to lend a hand. He wants to be helpful and he approaches the world in such a positive way. He is great with animals and was a very hard worker!
