The community's main project is the reforestation of 70 acres of severely eroded land. We are working to re-create the Tropical Dry Evergreen Forest indigenous to our area. The Tropical Dry Evergreen Forest is now close to total extinction as only 0.01% survives. This is a last moment effort to keep this very rich and beautiful Forest on earth.
As part of our reforestation effort we are also working on water conservation and soil management. For more information about our work please go to: www.sadhanaforest.org (For information about our new Sadhana Forest project in Haiti please go to: www.sadhanaforesthaiti.org)
Volunteers from all over the world create here a dynamic community atmosphere. Living and sharing in a communal atmosphere brings us in harmony with nature and ourselves.
We are happy to welcome volunteers here any time of the year and always have plenty of space for them!!! We are fully committed to accept everyone that wishes to volunteer here and help recreate the forest.
Accommodation for volunteers is in exchange for a 20 hour work week (4 hours a day, 5 days a week).
Other free facilities for volunteers include a small swimming pool, free 24/7 unlimited access to the internet with your own laptop, a small collection of books, yoga classes, the use of several bicycles, and a playground for children.
Volunteers mainly plant, mulch and water trees according to season, work in our little vegan-organic vegetable garden, maintain the community area, and spend time with the community kids.
Sadhana Forest is a 100% vegan environment, so we ask volunteers not to bring or eat any non-vegan food in the forest. Vegans do not eat meat, fish, eggs, dairy (milk) products, honey, or any other animal products. Our primary motivation to be vegans is to reduce animal suffering.
We welcome everyone to join our community for a short term or long term stay.
