We take on volunteers for a week at a time, though we have much more inquiries for placements than we can accommodate at present. PLEASE BOOK ASAP in order to not get disappointed. HERE ARE THE WORK WEEKS WE HAVE AVAILABLE FOR THIS YEAR 2018: The third full week of each month, 19th Feb, 19th March, 16th April, 21st May etc
gardening, pruning trees and building maintenance and repair will be needed in March. You do need to have some skills in at least one of these.
We host volunteers for two week periods from April through to October each year when we close down for the winter. We have set aside spaces for up to a maximum of six volunteers at any one time during this period. We set aside spaces for a maximum of two families during the volunteer season. Our family quota for the 2018 season is already full and so if you are a family then please try somewhere else. Our 2017 season is nearly at an end and we are taking no more applications. Applications for next year start in Jan 2018 when our new volunteer coordinator takes over from the old. Please visit our website and email: telling us a bit about yourself and your reasons for wanting to visit our community. We will send you further information. Have fun planning your year. Do not leave it to the last minute - we get booked up. Thank you.

We are looking for volunteers to come help in the garden and with wood processing
Volunteering at Pilsdon can take many different forms. Most volunteers live at Pilsdon for a period of between 6-12 months, whilst others who live locally come and support community life as day volunteers. Residential volunteers share fully in the life of the community which could mean cooking dinner for 25 people, leading prayers in one of the 4 daily offices in the church, milking, washing up etc. Underpinning this practical work is an ethos of ‘living alongside and serving one another’. One important implication of this is that Volunteers share the same house rules as Guests and Visitors in terms of Pilsdon being a dry house. Volunteers need to be able to feel comfortable participating fully in community life, which can often be emotionally and physically challenging, as well as have a good level of self-awareness and to be able to take responsibility for planning their own leisure and rest periods. Day volunteers support many aspects of community life including cooking, gardening, care of livestock and building maintenance.
Happy to have volunteers. Depending on length of stay we may as for a contribution to bills/food costs as we don't have much cash. Always open to negotiations and if your skill se tis particularly useful to the project then we will be very open to you staying for free.

From time to time, we welcome help from: Locally based volunteers, coming in for the day to help us at various times with such things as: • vegetable gardening • cooking and cleaning • log splitting • grounds maintenance • painting • envelope stuffing If you are interested in joining our locals’ network, please contact us at for a list of up-coming Locals’ Days and Events. Volunteers from further afield who stay with us – usually for a week – during our busiest times to help out with general core community work. This helps us cover, for instance, when core members take holidays. Almost always these volunteers will already be familiar with Othona, rather than coming for their first visit. They need to ‘know the ropes’ and be ready to take on a range of duties from welcoming visitors to cleaning or making breakfast for up to 30 people. If you’re interested in this, we ask you to spend some time with us as a visitor first.
