We are an off grid natural farming community. We also have a holistic retreat centre which will soon be reopening for events, courses and workshops aimed at the revival and enrichment of body, mind, spirit and earth. We are currently a small group of people, a bunch of chatty chickens, three charismatic dogs, a heard of beautiful pregnant Nguni cows and an abundant variety of wild birds and animals.
We are striving to grow into a spiritually and ecologically sound eco-village which is supportive, connected, multi-generational, family friendly and which finds meaning and enjoyment in living in harmony with each other and nature. It is our hope that by establishing a mindful intentional community, we will inspire and support others to do the same.

Our secluded and peaceful location allows travellers to reconnect with nature and enjoy a break from the sometimes frantic 'big city life'. There is the potential to learn about permaculture and natural farming and building. There is also the opportunity to join physical training which we do three times a week and meditation and yoga in the yoga hall on an ad-hoc basis. We invite you to revive and regenerate your soul on the path of self-discovery and awakening towards a more peaceful, joyful, abundant, conscious way of living.
Volunteer tasks are constantly changing but at the moment we need help with cutting and clearing invasive trees from the forest, propagating and transplanting indigenous trees, food production in our permaculture garden (this includes planing seeds, weeding and harvesting food for use on the farm), revamping our yoga hall and retreat centre (fixing up cracks, painting, rebuilding the deck).
Single basic rondavel room, bedding and linen is provided
Meals are plant-based (vegan) and communal. All meals are provided for volunteers who are expected to help with cooking and cleaning up afterwards. We ask that volunteers please provide their own snacks (bare in mind that we are far away from the shops).
In your off time you may want to explore the many paths around the 180 ha farm where you will come across interesting animal and bird life; dig into our intriguing collection of books; swim in the dam; visit the beach (8km away) engage in yoga, dance, meditation or any spiritual practice that you wish.
We are open to and very much encourage new ideas so please feel free to initiate any activities that you would like to do eg. crafting, painting, yoga, dance etc
