We offer visitors a unique opportunity of a volunteer program for those of you who would like to spend a bit more time being a bit closer to the South Africa lifestyle. Andrew used to volunteer all over the world 30 years ago and loved the experience and this is something he has created to give something back.

Volunteers have 3 options.

1. Conny has 9 horses and is continually training and excising them. We practice the softer horse whispering techniques and go for slow outrides on the farm. We have a foal that needs a lot of attention too. Conny also has a few donkeys to need to be cared for. Most of the animals on the farm were rescues and are now living in a very loving and cared for space.

2. You can work together with Andrew doing woodwork and alternative building. Andrew will teach you our unique style of woodwork and alternative building. Passion for this is everything but experience will help too. Its difficult to say exactly what you will be doing but we integrate ... more inside

Life is a book and if you don't travel you only read the first page...or less...

In December 2005 I was very fortunate to travel abroad for two years after finishing school. I met a lot of people and formed lifelong friendships with a few people from all around the globe, Learned more in those two years than the12 years in school....

I return back to South Africa in December 2007 and started the journey like every other young South African in a career, I over excelled in every career position I faced, thus was I very successful very young, I became a financial manager at BMW and stagnated in that position for the last three years. The reason I'm sharing this because I feel/know that the experiences and knowledge I gained was from meeting new people from all over the world and formed me into this special individual.

NOW- Back back to the present:
In these years back in South Africa I got married to the most beautiful, clever, one-of-a-kind girl that supports me and build m... more inside

We are a nature reserve at the edge of Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area. The guest house is not very busy, so there is ample time to participate in a variety of tasks, from ringing birds (Alan's research project associated with the FitzPatrick Institute, University of Cape Town) and wildlife monitoring (camera trap maintenance and data entry) to orchard work. You will probably also be asked to occasionally keep an eye on 2 children aged 8 and 6, who like the outdoors and going for walks.

We will preferentially take volunteers who can spend more than 2 weeks. Some tasks involve predawn starts and a lot of time in the mountains.

Other main projects include alien vegetation control, erosion control on our dirt roads, helping establish a fitness centre in Uniondale, and maintaining hiking trails. All sorts of other tasks may also appear, depending on time of year, what needs fixing etc. Most of the work that we need done throughout the year is quite physical. Helpers should be up fo... more inside

Bramleigh Farm is a small scale diversified farm with a focus on regenerative agricultural systems, started in 2017. We grow vegetables organically, raise chickens for meat and eggs on pasture, and forest raised pigs. Our processes aim to mimic nature and build each other as far as possible. We have 4 self catering cottages that are booked most weekends.

We are looking for volunteers to assist on the farm and in the guesthouse. Jobs include: moving animals, feeding animals, planting, harvesting, bed preparation, washing and packing vegetables for market, garden work (trimming, pruning, tidying), building jobs, and may extend into helping in the guesthouse if required.
Experience with organically grown vegetables on a market scale would be a winner! As would interest in food/cooking.
