Volunteering

Coming to the barracks as a volunteer can be a transformative experience. 

Meet people like you, interested in vegetable gardening, self sufficiency, climate emergency and veganism, from all over the world. Exchange, meet, work hard.

A Day at the Barracks

Work is seasonal. In spring, we sow, in autumn, we preserve. 

Morning

Vegetable gardens

In the morning, volunteers, residents and nomads all work in the most important part of the barracks - the vegetable gardens

Lunch

Eating together.

All volunteers take their turn on kitchen duty. When it's your day, you get up early to make oat milk and bread, then lunch for up to 12 people at midday

Afternoon

Project work

From woodworking to jam making, you stay on a project for at least a week, up to the whole of your stay. 

Very self-directed, with training

Sunday

In the forest 

On the 7th day, we rest. By which, I mean, mushroom or wild crafting hikes, lake swimming, bike tours. 

Or actual rest if you prefer!

The Workaway Suite

Each bedroom in the Workaway Suite is named after the first volunteer who stayed in it. 

Every volunteer enhances the room they stay in. Your comfort is thanks to the people who went before you, and those who come after you will be grateful for the personal touch that you improve the space with.

Meet the rooms, and an honour call of everyone who has stayed here!
