Volunteer Program

Calling all green thumbs, Crystal Castle devotees and lovers of the outdoors!

Crystal Castle wants you!

As an endeavour to lower our carbon footprint and expand on our castle grown organic café produce, we have created our very own Organic Food Farm, here on the Crystal Castle grounds. We are looking for volunteers who are interested in gardening and organic farming to assist us with the many wonderful ongoing projects here at the Crystal Castle.

We have 5 hectares of Shambhala Gardens to love and maintain. Come and join us in this wonderful and fulfilling program.

Although no experience is required, we are hoping some of our volunteers may have experience and skills in construction and landscaping. Our gardens team have a wealth of knowledge to share with you and these are some of the skills you may learn:

  • Organic & permaculture principles
  • Garden bed construction
  • Soil amelioration
  • Composting
  • Propagation


  • Planting
  • Mulching
  • Pruning
  • Plant Thinning
  • Harvesting


You will be warmly welcomed into our tribe by our unique and amazing team of people, and each day you will be given tea/coffee, cake and lunch “on the castle”.
