Volunteer at Chisholme House
Contact Host
As a volunteer at Chisholme House you are appreciated for who you are, not only for what you do. This is a place of great beauty set in the heart of the Scottish Borders. The 187 acre estate offers an ideal space in which to retreat, engage in study and experience the reviving effect of being close to nature. Volunteers are a vital part of life here. You may be involved in diverse activities ranging from working in the organic gardens, to cooking a feast, tree planting, splitting timber, putting up yurts or caring for chickens. As a volunteer, you are welcome to participate in all aspects of the Institute including study and meditation if you wish. Free volunteers may come at any time of the year, but are encouraged to come outside our volunteer weeks (see calendar on our website). Normally free volunteers come for one or two weeks. Longer stays may be possible after the initial two weeks. Vegetarian meals can be provided. Regrettably we cannot cater to anyone with special dietary requirements (e.g., gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, etc.) but you are more than welcome to bring your own food. We cannot accept pets. This has been a school for over forty years, in which time Chisholme has become a unique setting for a complete education in what it means to be human.
