Typical Volunteer

All sorts! And all ages - from babies to our so-far oldest visitor at the grand age of 87. Children are welcome, with a supervising adult (volunteers aged of 16 or 17 must provide consent from a parent or guardian if volunteering without them). Everyone is linked by a common interest in the environment and sustainable living, but beyond that, there's a huge range of interests and characters. One of the best parts of Sunseed for many people is the opportunity to experience the collective aspects of community living.
