BE PART OF OUR COMMUNITY
There are many options to become involved in our wonderful project.
VOLUNTEERING @ FARM SHIZEN
At the farm the possibility of staying while living the natural way of life and touching the soil is offered to those who feel called by this way of looking at life, of growing nutritious and healthy food, of being in contact with the essence of Nature.
We will spend time together carrying out the different tasks every day is presenting us with, while taking care of each other’s needs too.
There is neither a fixed schedule, nor fixed tasks: you will live the natural way of life, in mutual respect and awareness, allowing the connection with your Heart while practicing natural farming in the vegetable gardens and in the fruit orchard.
A common kitchen and a bathroom are available; you can camp in your tent or stay in the dorm 15 minutes walk away from the farm. Mainly vegetarian food is consumed here (please inform us of special diet requirements in the application form). We like spending time together when working or preparing meals, and we appreciate openness, self-knowledge, helpfulness and independence.
The minimum time to volunteer is 1 week. After this period of getting to know each other, we may sit and decide together how long you'd like to stay (during the months March-November).
Come and learn to communicate in silence.
