Volunteer Program

Would you like to help out at the

3rd birthday celebrations of the Kalachakra World Peace Stupa

on Saturday 29th August?

We’re excited to welcome our friends the Gyuto Monks back to the Crystal Castle & Shambhala Gardens to celebrate the third birthday of the Kalachakra World Peace Stupa on Saturday 29th August.

This wonderful day of celebration is fast approaching, and we will need volunteers to help on the day in various areas, including set up, ushers, maintainers, carers, Cafe support team and more!

Please join us in giving the Stupa some extra peace and love on its birthday. Of course you will be rewarded and will get to enjoy the day along with everyone else attending the celebrations.

We will need volunteers both during and beforehand to help set up for the event, so whatever time you can be here or if you are able to contribute in any way please contact us and we can discuss it further.

We appreciate all your working hands and look forward to hearing from you. 


Calling all pro-active workers, green thumbs and lovers of the Crystal Castle!

Join our fantastic volunteer program. The Crystal Castle is always growing and changing with five hectares of Shambhala Gardens to love and maintain. We welcome anyone willing to put effort and time into the creation of vibrant gardens and other exciting projects.

Your contribution not only helps us to grow but can be an enriching experience for you as well. You’ll be surrounded by a beautiful, fun team, amazing landscape, awesome crystals and the satisfaction of contributing to a place that is truly amazing. Whether you are a natural green thumb, have experience in landscaping or just want to help us out for a day with odd tasks, we have a job for you and you will be needed!

The program runs in the Shambhala Gardens and the Organic Food Gardens (which helps supply our Lotus Cafe). You can join us for just one day or as an ongoing commitment. Our Gardens Team has a wealth of knowledge and you can potentially learn many new skills.

For your hard work you will receive morning tea and lunch from our lovely Lotus Cafe (choose from our menu - gluten free and vegan options available) and you will also receive a magical gift at the end of the day.
