Volunteering

As a volunteer at Chisholme you are appreciated for who you are, not only for what you do.

Opportunities to volunteer vary depending on the time of year and current programme. Activities are many and diverse: you might be asked to help in the organic garden, work in the woodland, split and stack timber for our wood boiler, help prepare rooms for new guests, pick wild raspberries, prepare food in the kitchen and much more.

As a volunteer you are also invited to participate in meditation, study of wisdom texts and further approaches to self-knowledge. Most importantly, you will be living and working in a place that supports the discovery of your own potential. Chisholme is a school with the guiding principle of the unity of all being. Once glimpsed, this is a vision – or mystery – that can transform our understanding of ourselves and the world.

Financial contributions:
We may ask for a small contribution towards the basic cost of your stay.
Please contact us to discuss details. Write to secretary@chisholme.org

Last summer a group at Chisholme, including residents and some Directors, met in the old spruce plantation at Fat Hill, along with Ben Young, the former estate manager and a woodland expert. The intention was to reach an agreement on the next best step; whether and when the trees be clear felled, and to consider future plans for replanting.
