Our volunteer program is especially for those who want to experience the life of an Eco Village, engage in sustainable activities such as organic farming, Eco Building, Sustainable Tourism, Yoga Retreats, Oriental Art, etc.
Our eco yoga farm is a place to disconnect from your daily routine and join ours. It is set amid beautiful mountains, rivers, waterfalls, and mist less than one hour away from Bogota. The farm has been here for 30 years so we are well-established and have everything here to make your volunteer time comfortable and relaxed. You´ll work, but we hope you have a good time as well!
As a volunteer you'll: connect or reconnect with nature. Volunteer activities include organic gardening, environmentally friendly construction/design projects, working in the vegetarian restaurant-kitchen, and working with art and educational programs for the children living in and around the community.
Volunteers work 4½ hours in the morning on Organic Farming, Eco Building, Eco Tourism, helping the Vegetarian / Vegan Restaurant, gardening, art, filming, teaching in our rural school (in case of longer stay), teaching English to members community, etc. In the afternoon you can participate in the activities of the Eco Village: Hatha Yoga and relaxation, meditation with Tibetan bowls, music therapy with oriental instruments, Pranayama workshop, nature walks, film on a giant screen, etc. Throughout the year, volunteers of all ages and from all over the world come to Varsana to discover their skills, get in touch with Mother Earth, helping to improve our community, learn languages and enjoy an engaging experience in an environment only natural.
