Volunteering

The CO Project Farm is an emerging creative and cultural space for educative and personal project development experiences. Set in the countryside and focusing on the best sustainable design and permaculture/organic farming techniques, we are building a unique new Brain Spa concept. The project is connected to the UnSchool Association, a not-for-profit set up to advanced leadership in sustainability and the circular economy.

We have many people wanting to volunteer, so please register your interest and explain what type of support you would like to offer so we can consider the logistics of it all for you. We will reach out when we have opportunities to come and help out with working bee weekends and during programs.
