In our experience nearly all of our volunteers have called their visit to our farm an eye-opener; to many our inspirations were a library they didn't know existed. Our balance in group dynamic through absence of addictive substances, ego and greed has been called an inspiration that many will apply further down the road of life.
We strongly believe that in our universe travellers benefit from "carrying" other people and being carried by their peers; our volunteers come from all over the globe and this international mix has proven to be educational for everyone; creative sparks tend to fly when two worlds collide. We have created an atmosphere where a change in paradigm away from so called Western values makes more sense - core members of the farm have run businesses or held down straight jobs, we believe this is a tremendous opportunity to sample the best of both worlds and learn how to go back home with extra luggage.
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
