There are many ways to get involved in our community and to work for the benefit of others. Volunteering in social / community projects offers not only great benefit to others but also for oneself. Volunteering is a two way path: it benefits you and the cause / project you choose. Being a volunteer at The Garden of Love and Compassion Retreat Centre offers you a wonderful opportunity to help others, while living in a blessed and growing environment.
BECOME A VOLUNTEER AND INVEST IN HAPPINESS!
Our summer volunteering programme will extend from July until October. We will be focusing in particular on the exterior works needed to the estate: clearing the land of vegetation overgrowth; irrigation and lighting systems for the gardens; and the creating of a network of paths to different parts of this magical estate! The volunteers will have a working week comprising 6 days. Accommodation and food will be provided. We suggest a minimum commitment of a one week stay. If you are interested in forming part of our team, please complete the registration form at the foot of the page. We are particularly interested in hearing from you if you are a professional in any of the jobs referred to below.
