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.

As this was my first experience with Worldpackers, Shama and Anders provided an excellent experience for me to find myself in the remote 26 acres of peaceful bliss. The food is for the most part whole and healthy, and the people amazing. There is a strong sense of family and people are very supportive and friendly. The location boasts some spectacular amenities such as the two kayaks that sit near the lake. Anders is a fun and open minded guy who will listen and support people with respect and dignity. I love this place, and can easily see myself returning.

The weeks I spent in Heartland were great and with great learning, when I arrived I spoke almost nothing in English and with everyone's help I managed to communicate and improve, the work was more therapy than work, very organized place and with lots of integration with everyone who was there!
A great experience and I hope to return one day!
Thank you Anders!

Anders, thank you so much for this experience! Our time in Heartland was amazing. The work was very good, everything super organized, always a new learning experience. The food was delicious. We formed a really cool group, where we were able to share Yoga classes, art classes, movie sessions, community dinners and etc ... lots of conversations and connections that we will bring to our life. The energy in Heartland is amazing. We learned a lot about work and life. Fully recommended.

I had a beautiful experience at heartland.
I helped in a permaculture event, so most of my days was different than a usual experience in the land.
The event was amazing. I helped in the kitchen and the chef leading was such amazing person. We learned a lot about cutting vegetables and also the importance to speak up, to filter energy and connect w/ our true selves.
I could meet amazing people, and work w/ them. There is a transformative energy in the place.
Was amazing the sense of community, to learn about people, nature and myself in a great connection w/ the whole. I loved it!!

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.
