The Experience

We are in build phase but you don't have to be an experienced builder. We have professionals on staff just need more people to help :) We build, we paint, we decorate, and make this place the most amazing place on Earth that you can all HOME and keep coming back to :) The right people will have a lot of energy but can also be calm. We usually work in groups with music and it is a lot of fun!

My experience at Heartland Collective was amazing. The place is such a beautiful spot. I loved how peaceful was my stay there.
Anders is a great person, and I’d definitely recommend to be a volunteer there.
I applied for the social media role, but I learnt new stuff that at home I never did before.
I hope I can come back in the near future :)

Anders & Shama are great human beings and they accept you with an open heart. The entire heartland will give you an experience, you could never forget in life. If you love nature, this is the place, like walking up to the lake, finding different sunset spots everyday, taking the kayak for your day out, you never run out of doing things and living your life. You and your work, both are celebrated at Heartland. Volunteering in Heartland has definitely raised my expectations from the Volunteer Program. Everything is well managed, balanced and very fair. Highly Recommended! ❤️

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.
