Heartland Collective

We are building a dream here. Every year it gets better and better. We are co-creating a new lifestyle rich life experience. We are slowly becoming an amazing Retreat destination. Depending on the role you choose we will teach you various things, but everyone will learn the basics of how to grow food, and we will all enjoy it together. What's happening in 2021? The concept of Heartland is to explore living life 2.0 to creating true sustainability. We are running a "Glamping Retreat" while we are also in the build phase of our bigger vision. We are about to begin a big new project that will take 3-6 months to complete depending on how many people we can find to help. We want your help! The more people we have the more focused various roles can be. There are many roles to fill. We need to do the work and we want to capture the story and share it with the world... Hospitality work to support the Glamping Retreat, moving and rebuilding a big shop, and preparing a healing center. While all this is happening we were hit with COVID, so plans have changed a bit, but we are still moving forward. Please only come IF you are either vaccinated OR if you feel 100% healthy. If during your time at Heartland you get any cold/flu symptoms we request that you wear a mask indoor until the symptoms have cleared to protect the community from any type of cold or virus. In addition to the required work hours we have short daily "check-in" meetings and one longer weekly "Fika" meeting (people's favorite) to go over all the happenings at Heartland and to connect with eachother. We also have one weekly group cleaning task called "Zim-Zam" where we make sure our shared kitchen, and shared community areas are clean and tidy for us to enjoy. Please review the arrival document and all our other agreements linked here. If you need us to pick you up from public transport, we request you arrive on Monday or Tuesday. If you have your own vehicle or if you want to pay for a ride from the airport you can arrive Wednesday or Thursday. We DO NOT accept volunteer arrivals Fri-Sunday.

Heartland collective was my first experience like a volunteer and I absolutely recommend it, the place is far but is really nice to be in touch with the nature, you can meet wonderful and friendly people and learn about a lot of things like nature, food, construction, art, and living in communal.
Anders is a great guy, always available to help you, the week is full of activities and the staff make you feel like part the family.

Not sure what to say about this place man but it is special. The friends and volunteers I’ve met here on this journey have been amazing, the food was even better, and the way everyone worked together to create something so special is amazing. So much love here at heartland and thank you shama and anders for opening up your hearts and land so others can see and experience the beautiful world we live in.

I stayed at Heartland for the Month of July in 2021, and I can say with confidence that this experience has changed my life for the better. Anders and Shama are spectacular people who provided me with the opportunity to reconnect with nature and learn more about myself. I learned life skills every day during my stay. Anders will teach you how to do construction and garden, while Shama will teach you how to navigate your way through all the nonsense life throws your way. I cannot recommend this experience enough.
