YARTA Volunteer Opportunities
In Yarta Boolambayte, we grow our own food and produce a unique, high-value bioactive honey that can be used for medicinal purposes. The team is aiming to create opportunities and partnerships to grow earth care principles.
You'll be able to set up camp and absorb the divine serenity of the property as well as benefit from learning about the many aspects of farming and building. It’s an opportunity to be a part of something that’s bigger than any one of us, a growing movement around the world. Once we're up and running in the veggie patch and nursery, we’ll be creating food boxes for our volunteers as a take-home reminder of your Yarta participation. Not to mention, you'll be leaving with our deep appreciation!
