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!

In the midst of the chaos I found the best place, I learned to work with tools that I never used, I helped build things that I never did, I had fun, I met people, I made friends. The place is magical, beautiful, clean, safe and has an incredible energy. Not anyone who doesn't feel the same. I am very grateful to Anders for the opportunity, empathy and for teaching me so much, every day. I love this place ! 🌱♥️

Set in a wide expanse of land next to a lake you get to experience being part of nature. Theres a nice sense of community here, and a clear structured work environment. A space is held for personal growth and transformation which helps create a warm social container. You get a chance to see how a permacultural, semi-off the grid , sustainable land project can function effectively.

heartland gives you a place where you can be in your optimal state for creativity and focus, on figuring out your life objectives, In a place like this, with healthy food, clean air, beautiful scenery, positive practices like yoga, meditation, static dance and productive people you can learn from helping each other.Anders and shama have created something that humanity has been craving for generations. A place were people from completely different backgrounds, religious beliefs, and talents can not only coexist but work together towards a common goal. Creating a new standard of living.

There’s no place like Heartland. My experience was beyond my expectations, the place is incredible and the people too, connecting with all of this people from all across the world made me feel loved and supported. The place has this vibe that can heal and make you grow as a person, highly recommend everyone to experience it at least once in their lives.

Heartland is not just a volunteer is a place where if you have the opportunity to go u'll never regret it.My experience has been very short and in low season, but either way I fell in love with the place. Imagine what it might be like in summer! Honestly the proposition behind Heartland is gorges and it's growing everyday. So being able to be part of the project whatever work I did , for me already fills me with satisfaction and gratitude. It's a place to learn, share and live in community,but also a place to learn to know and listen to yourself. Don't miss the change, you'll feel like home :)
