  • Description

    Description

    Our farm is part of the Compassberg Protected Environment near the top of the catchment of the Sneeuberg Mountains of the Great Karoo. We have a busy life farming cattle and hosting guests and home school our children. We would love help from people who have experience working with kids or have a special skill they can share with children (ours are 7 & 9). There are lots of maintenance projects including the upkeep of our natural earth building, so all those carpenters builders and people that are creative and love working with their hands are welcome. Each year we have a festival at Easter that we need lots of volunteers for!

    This remote farm is far away from the air/sound/light/noise pollution of the city. It is the ideal place to connect with yourself and with nature. However, life on the farm is very busy. You need to be self motivated and comfortable with your own company. For this reason we prefer couples/pairs of volunteers.

    We are an hour drive from the nearest ATM machine/petrol station and 20 minutes on a bumpy road to the nearest small shop. Sometimes we are cut off from civilization for a few days when the rains turn the roads into mud soup. We do weather in a big way: In winter we have can have snow and freezing temperatures, in summer we have flash floods, electric storms and occasionally intense heat (though being up in the mountains our temperatures are never get too unbearable high for too long). We know drought very well.

    But if you love mountains and fresh air and you don't need cell phone reception then you will love this farm.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Visitors will learn about rural living where we are guided by the seasons and the focus is on life and death (the health and wellbeing of our animals, our environment and ourselves). You will get a perspective on sustainable not sentimental environmental practices. You will spend time working with our staff who have different life experiences and different perspectives from yourself. If you stay for long enough you may have the opportunity to visit the town of Nieu Bethesda and see what village life is like.
