Ananda Kalyani needs volunteers to help with fruit picking and general garden help from mi-July to the end of September.
Project: With 24 hectares of land, Ananda Kalyani is a budding ecological and personal development centre located on the edge of the beautiful Serra da Estrela natural park. It has an organic farm with cherries and berries and biological vegetables, and promotes a healthy holistic lifestyle centring around yoga and meditation through a wide range of programmes such as workshops, retreats, seminars, adventure camps and an annual Ananda Festival of Bliss.
Accommodation: Simple accommodation is provided in tents on the land. We have compost toilets, showers and a kitchen in a tiny house where volunteers cook and eat pure vegetarian food together.
Free time activities: In your free time you may swim in the river located at the bottom of our land, hike or go biking in the beautiful Serra da Estrela or visit Covilha town half an hour away by bus. You may also practise yoga and meditation with us if you wish.
Restrictions: We do not allow non-vegetarian food, cigarettes, drugs or alcohol to be consumed or brought into on our project.
