  • Description


    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.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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.

  • Help


    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).
