Open Days at EarthHeart
Open Days happen at various points between spring and autumn and are a great way to visit EarthHeart, get a sense of what it’s all about, and a chance to see how else you might like to get involved, what it is like to be in community, meet Jewels and ask questions. Check out the Calendar to see when the next EarthHeart Open Day is.
If you are interested in getting involved this is a great day to see how it all works and ask questions. No need to book, just turn up, if you have lots of questions to ask please make sure you come in time for the tour at 2pm which will be the time to ask questions and find out more about the project.
EarthHeart is an experiment in human evolution becoming more deeply aligned with our natural world. Our vision aspires to environmental harmony, respect for all people and of our sacred connection to nature. It is a place to come and reconnect with the soul and spirit of our own essential nature by being immersed in the nature in which EarthHeart exists. It’s an alive, ever-evolving vision. EarthHeart aspires to be a mutually supportive experiment in co creation with each other, nature and life itself. We seek to grow people, find their gifts and encourage them and create a context for co creating a beautiful world.
Volunteering at EarthHeart is suitable for people interested in living peacefully on the land deep in nature away from the busyness of life and people overload, whilst at the same time doing meaningful work for a more balanced world.
It is suitable for people who are looking for autonomy and prefer to work alone or maybe with one other.
If you are looking for a large busy community of volunteers then EarthHeart may not be the right place for you.
We ask volunteers to stay for a minimum of 3 months ideally with priority given to those who can commit to 6 months or longer. This has evolved from trial and error over a number of years and is based on feedback from previous volunteers.
We also welcome people staying for longer periods with a view to finding ways to create extra income for themselves through offering the infastructure that EarthHeart provides.
