Volunteer with Us

VOLUNTEERING IS A SPECIAL BALANCE OF GIVING AND RECEIVING.

We live and work with a karma yoga approach, this means that we receive and fulfill the work we do each day with devotion and consciously aware that we are offering our work for a greater purpose, this inspires us to give the best we can and thus with the understanding that we are all contributing to the community which in a wider scope is also our greater contribution to life itself. We treat our center as our communal home and invite everyone to care for this space with attention and love.

To join us as a volunteer we will need you first to answer a questionnaire that will be emailed to you upon registration. After which, you need to let us know when is your desired date of arrival and length of stay. Volunteer programs are designated for a minimum of one month stay so we can get to know each other better and as well as to give you enough time to be in the medicine space, learn about plants and immerse as a volunteer. If you feel drawn to live and work with us on the land, and you are both willing and able to contribute in any of the following fields:
