Welcome to Landmatters


We usually organise volunteer work days during the summer months. These are open to the public, and provide attendees with the chance to meet some of the Co-op members,  learn and share skills and experiences and enjoy a nice vegetarian lunch.


Longer volunteering options are sometimes available, depending on what projects are on the go at the time. These may include building or structures repairs, gardening/landscaping, wooding, and event site prep. Volunteers are welcome to camp, or can choose to hire out one of our glamping accommodations. Do get in touch via the contact page here if you are interested in learning more about volunteering with us.  


Guided tours of the Landmatters site can be arranged for those who would like to know a bit more about life on the land, and see what an off-grid lifestyle might look like. There is a small investment required for this service and the tours are usually up to a couple hours long. Monthly tours are currently being offered on the second Saturday of each month, March till October. For more information please get in touch via the contact page here
