We are located in the Forest of Dean, in Gloucestershire. We're an environmental and human awareness project with a deep love and respect for the Natural world, that all life is to be respected and protected. We offer a space for people to connect with nature and learn more about it. We provide fantastic opportunities for volunteers to take their own initiative, be creative and learn more about community living and our impact on the environment, as well as taking personal introspective time to listen to our own inner landscapes.

We take volunteers for a minimum of 6 months and we prioritise placements for people who are interested in a more long term stay. If you are interested and in need of some quiet space and time in nature for reflection and you value time alone then EarthHeart would suit you well. We currently have 2 volunteers here and are looking to expand our community at this time. You would be well suited here if you want to be engaged in meaningful work and be a part of the change so many of us feel passionate to see happen. We provide this as well as a space / context for you to develop your own passions and gifts to the world. In this regard, there is an opportunity to create extra income for yourself and develop your own purpose and business. We are looking for people who can take initiative and are creative, want to be a part of a community and self promote.

There is also lots of general land work in all areas; general maintenance, planting, weeding, lake management, hedging, building, stone walling etc. We also have many ongoing projects involving carpentry both on the land and in the buildings. We have an amazing round house structure called an Earth lodge which is a green eco build. Help with cleaning, cooking and house maintenance is also part of the work here.

Our site is four acres in size and surrounded on all sides by 200,000 acres of forest. You can walk out of our gates direct into the forest and roam for miles. We are fairly remote, our nearest neighbours are 1/2 mile away but we are within easy striking distance of a local town with organic supplies and the cities of Bristol, Gloucester and Ross-on-Wye can be easily reached.

Accommodation is a caravan of your own. We also make sure that there is a good balance for each person of more physical 'hard' work and lighter work.

Please view our website and facebook page (linked above) to get a broader understanding of our project and a better feel for how you could fit in with our community.
