Want to get involved?
We are a community of human beings, here to support the vision that keeps unfolding.
Jewels is the guardians of the land, the spaces, and holds the financial responsibility to keep the project thriving and surviving. Jewels works 7 days a week most often but even with this there is more that needs to be done. EarthHeart is a not-for-profit based project and only works with the support of the volunteering program which is the bedrock of the project.
Jewels deeply value and appreciates people who feel inspired to come and be a part of the project that’s purpose is to create a better world and people who wish to partake in more meaningful work that support a better world for all. It is suitable for people who are looking for a more community based, outdoor living experience. We welcome all people no matter how you identify and what colour of skin you are.
We offer mentoring and sharing circle work as part of our support to volunteers as well as you being able to follow your own creative projects while you are here.
We ask for a 6 month minimum commitment and this has become the agreement after nearly 10 years of experimentation and feedback from the volunteers. A wish to make a home and feel settled and to have enough time to develop connections and build relationships.
This also means that you have more opportunity to take ownership of projects and have more responsibility and agency while you are here.
Next steps …..
We ask that you first read our volunteers handbook which answers most of the initial questions you are likely to have about how it all works and it gives a comprehensive outline of how we work things here. Please read this before getting in touch.
~ Here is the pdf
If after reading the handbook you are happy with the framework and you are interested in getting involved you can apply to volunteer.

If you’re not sure and want to meet us first and experience what we do and visit the land and meet us, we run Open Hearth weekends twice a year.

Exploring a different way of living
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 a simple life, in peace and in nature,
