We host a small residential volunteer team with a twin focus of taking care of our participants and the learning environment while developing volunteers’ own enquiries relating to the values and aims of our campus.

Volunteers work alongside staff to take care of course participants through the provision of sound, clean accommodation and good food.

As Dartington increases the proportion of food grown on site, volunteers assist the kitchen and garden teams with food preservation and storage, growing, harvesting and pasteurising.

We encourage volunteers to be active participants in the learning community and to take opportunities to attend course sessions, talks and other activities that are open to the learning community.

Residential volunteers often participate in activities up to five days per week. Volunteer placements are usually for a minimum of one month and preference is given to people who are able to commit to 3 months or longer.
