Volunteer / Work-Exchange
Volunteer and Work-Exchange Opportunities
We offer a variety of academic/student-exchange scenarios tailored to best suit our own research, learning and sharing objectives combined with
those of the academic institution/researcher/student as suited to their particular situation, logistically and otherwise.
About Our Volunteer Program
Thank you for your interest in learning more about how you can be involved
in the work we are doing on our own farm, in local communities, nationally and internationally,

How to Apply
1. Read through all our Volunteer information pages
to ensure you feel the fit is right for you.
2. Use the link to our application form in the Volunteer menu
to begin your application request.
3. We'll be in touch to communicate about the details and timing
of your volunteer request.
Nothing. If you are able to come as a full-term Volunteer, Work-Exchange or Internship your stay is absolutely free.
If you are coming for a full Work-Exchange or Internship, some of your meals are also covered for you.
Absolutely. Many. We only list here our most basic on-going projects. Ask us to learn about others.
It depends on the type of stay you are applying for.
Volunteers most often apply months before their arrival, but sometimes if we have cancellations or openings a week or two could do. For a Work-Exchange or Internship, more time is required to customize your program of learning.
Travelers and short-term Helpers can reserve their space with as little as a few days notice if space exists, but more time in advance helps to ensure your space.
