WORKING LOCALLY FOR A SUSTAINABLE PLANET
ACTIVITIES AT THE FARM
Our model of social inclusion means that we support people facing barriers to learning new skills, becoming part of a team and improving their health and wellbeing. We are committed to supporting marginalised and stigmatized groups and accept on a case by case basis self referrals of people with mild mental health and addiction issues. We tailor our volunteering opportunities to specific cases as part of an individual’s recovery.
Krishna Eco Farm is an innovative agricultural research project with a mission to empower individuals to make a tangible contribution to their communities. We focus on the interests and abilities of our volunteers rather than on their illness, disability or difficulties. We offer a wide range of opportunities from horticulture and conservation to animal care and textile crafts.

VOLUNTEER AT THE FARM
We invite you to experience an alternative lifestyle that benefits your body, mind and soul and is based on the motto ‘simple living, high thinking’. It is a unique chance to get out of the rat race and see things from a new perspective.
We are still in the very early stages, however in the long-term we are aiming for self-sufficiency. The eco-farm provides good opportunities for self-development and using your initiative.
We invite volunteers to learn new skills and to share their present skills to develop this project. The Eco Farm includes a walled garden, green houses, a meditation garden, energy saving technologies, alpacas and an ashram for spiritual practices. If you prefer fruits over alcohol, fresh air over cigarettes, our famous veggie food over meat and would like to experience a detoxing retreat then the Krishna Eco Farm is for you!
We require volunteers to work 6 hours a day, 6 days a week including cleaning up after meals. Details of work offered may vary according to season, weather and individual capability. An especially busy time is during planting and harvesting. The range of activities include seed sowing, harvesting, digging, weeding, landscaping, logging, site maintenance, cleaning, building, graphic & web design and even garland making. We also have a rolling calendar of festivals and events and require assistance in pre-event and event organising as well as in take-down.
