Learning to be a sustainable steward is now a hands-on experience! A hearty welcome is extended to all who wish to get back to basics. The Symbiosis Ranch, in partnership with the Naturopathic Community Center, offers sustainable living enthusiasts opportunities to volunteer to help with gardening, food preservation, animal husbandry, biodynamics, and sacred geometry. There is no charge for these adventures. Please request to be put on the Symbiosis Ranch Volunteer List, and we will keep you updated of schedules and coming volunteer activities. Please be prepared for your experience by packing a lunch, plenty of water, garden and/or work gloves, and closed toed shoes. Bring hats and bug repellent at your discretion.
