Volunteer Application

In Noosa Forest Retreat we treat the land and all life on it as sacred, utilising organic and permaculture farming to do so. We are not only growing nutritious food, but also creating a healthy community that is striving to meet its needs sustainably and equitably, while supporting each individual’s personal and spiritual growth.

With our on-going permaculture courses, training and internships we aim to be a world class permaculture demonstration site.

We offer food, accommodation and hands on experience in Permaculture in exchange for 25 h work/week.
