    Descripción

    We are an off grid natural farming community. We also have a holistic retreat centre where we host 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, charismatic dogs, a heard of Nguni cows, 2 piggies 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.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    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 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 while experimenting with living in community and immersing in nature.

    Volunteer tasks are constantly changing but at the moment we need help with our herd of Nguni cows used for regenerative grazing, propagating and transplanting of indigenous trees and nursery, food production in our permaculture gardens (this includes planting seeds, weeding and harvesting food for use on the farm), natural building jobs (building using cob, wattle and daub, woodwork and painting), beautification and art projects, welcoming and hosting guests and other activities around natural living on a farm, never a dull moment!

  • Alojamiento

    Alojamiento

    Basic rooms built out of natural materials, bedding and linen is provided. We have hot water showers with a donkey system (you make a fire to heat water) and compost toilets.

    We are a mostly plant based community and ask any visitors to not bring dairy or meat on the farm. We take turns cooking and eat together where possible. We ask for a R350 a week meal contribution to cover the costs. All other meals and snacks are for your own account and we’ll give you an opportunity once a week to join someone to go to town and shops as we are not close to them so be prepared!

    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

    If our space resonates with you and you would like to get in touch please tell us why you have chosen our spot in particular. We are a close knit small community who share space and volunteers are very special to us, we value your help and friendship. The farm work is mostly physical and can be demanding but is extremely rewarding. Chop wood, carry water is our mantra!

    Please DO NOT contact us if you are simply looking for a free space to bide your time as we need proactive and willing volunteers to help us grow forward!

    You are welcome to bring your campervan of any size but please keep in mind our road is rather bumpy and muddy and can be very slippery when it is wet so you will need high clearance and good wheels . We have outdoor showers and toilets for you to use.
