Places needing Volunteers

These communities have said that they are currently looking for volunteers. In addition many communities are also members of WWOOF (Willing Workers On Organic Farms) and welcome volunteers via this scheme. Here's a list of communities that are WWOOF Hosts.

Lothlorien (Rokpa Trust) is a Buddhist influenced therapeutic community for people with mental health problems. Quiet rural setting in SW Scotland. Daily activities include organic gardening, relaxation, artwork, etc. We are seeking full time live-in volunteers who can commit for a minimum of six months.

Stop Press: March 2020: We have cancelled all wwoofing until further notice. 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 four 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 2020 season is already full and so if you are a family then please try somewhere else. Applications for 2020 are now open. 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 enjoy when Wwoofers visit us in Glastonbury Somerset, work can vary from household chores to gardening to light maintenance work, 4 hours per day nominally. Please get in touch if you are interested. During the covid crisis we would put you in an isolation room when you arrive and take you to a testing station ASAP.

Can you help us grow veg? Reclaim waste food from supermarkets and wholesalers? Put mud on the walls of our straw bale house? Fix bikes? Welcome visitors with a tour and a tea? Take creative direct action to prevent climate crimes? Or just make another squat pot of lentil and veg soup? Don’t worry if you haven’t got a lot of experience - we all started off just wanting to learn.

We are normally always looking for 2-week volunteers to help in the House, Kitchen, Garden and Grounds. In the current situation we have had to put that on hold for the moment and plan to operate over the summer solely as a limited capacity B&B and camping site. As soon as the government guidance allows we will be changing this policy on volunteers. When this happens please email with the dates you'd be interested in volunteering (arriving on a Monday and leaving on Monday) -- letting us know any particular skills you have to share. Thank you!

Hi we are having a Volunteer/Come meet us weekend on Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th August from 10am each day. There will be a range of volunteering opportunities as we develop areas of gardens, land, buildings and educational therapeutic workshop delivery areas. One of our aims at Temple Druid is to improve our multi-family program. The program integrates the needs of the adult, child/yp and parent-child relationship in order to enable families to overcome trauma associated with ACES and strengthen family’s sense of wellbeing and safety with in the home. Our approach has been developed by practitioners with over 30 years’ experience of working with young people and their families from the fields of social work, education, psychotherapy and forest school including developing and delivering preventative therapeutic programs for families with children on the edge care. We understand the quality of relationships – with self and others – to be the key to healing and change. The approach is underpinned by attachment theories, positive psychology, intersubjectivity and the nurtured heart approach. You are welcome to bring your own van or tent and camp for the weekend. You can of course just come for the day! If you would like to attend send us an email please –
