There’s a lot to do around here, and we need a lot of people to get it all done. So we always welcome volunteers, who may end up staying for any length of time from a few hours to a several years.
We always have projects going on – clearing land, cutting firewood, milling lumber, clearing land, building structures, collecting sap, moving animals around, preparing for Bardo Farm Fest, and so on. Contact us to find out what’s going on, how you can help, where and when to show up, and what to bring with you.
We also need interns to work with the animals and the gardens during the growing season. This requires a longer commitment, but it also comes with more benefits: a place to camp, free meals, and access to a bunch of smart, capable people who can probably help you learn anything you want to know more about.
Some people who start as farm interns become more involved with the Bardo Project, and may end up living full time on the property while they work on letting go of the things that have been weighing their lives down, and realizing their capabilities.
(‘Bardo’ is a Tibetan word meaning ‘between lives’, and it’s the goal of the Bardo Project to provide a place where people can pause, reconsider their values and their strengths, and start moving in a direction that is aligned with those.)
