Pachamama is looking for passionate eco warriors to join us in building our vision at Pachamama.  The work exchange is for two plant-based meals per day and accommodation as well as many diverse learning opportunities in :

-Organic permaculture


-Natural building


– Plant-based cooking

-Herbal medicines and many more.

Our volunteers are selected for their unique skills, talents they bring to the project and we are open for suggestions of future projects.

These programs are for individuals who resonate with our vision and the work that we do, and are interested in being part of our community project/s for a period of time.

We are looking for short term volunteers (2-3 weeks) with the opportunity to take on a longer term position for certain individuals with specific skill sets that are needed on the land. The program for short term volunteers is dependant on the projects we are working on at the time.


As a community, we have the opportunity to learn from one another, to discover and explore the power of co-creation. Spending time as part of a conscious community provides us with the opportunity to explore new ways of being, of relating with ourselves, one another and nature.


We work together for 6+ hours each day and have weekends to rest. We ask that everyone contribute what they can towards meal costs, own breakfast, coffee/tea/sugar/snacks.  We prepare and eat meals together & helping in the kitchen is another task for volunteers to get involved in.  In a community, we share responsibilities.  We provide plant based cooked meals, salads and smoothies for guests at our retreat centre too.

There is space to host talks or mini-workshops or just share your knowledge amongst volunteers.


In your spare time you have the opportunity to explore and utilize the beautiful facilities on the land, participate in our community events like yoga & meditation sessions and music evenings.  You could also explore the indigenous forest paths around the land and if you have a vehicle, drive to nearby towns of Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and Sedgefield over weekends
