Volunteer Fortnight - Chisholme House April 8th-22nd

Chisholme House is a retreat tucked away in the hills of the Scottish Borders, dedicated to the art of self-discovery. We offer intensive retreat courses, week long study retreats, introductory weekends and a whole range of other courses including poetry, drawing and dancing.

April is our busiest time of year, and during these two weeks we plant out everything that will be growing up in the garden throughout the year. It would be a great chance for anyone who is interested in large-scale planting to get the opportunity to learn. It is a one-acre walled garden, with 2 polytunnels and a 'polyhouse' that is in the making. Volunteers from all over the world come and join us for these weeks, but we would love the chance to welcome local people from the area.

Volunteers are also invited to work in the kitchen, the wood yard and the house (painting and decorating). Volunteers are also welcome to join the morning meditation session and there will be study sessions planned so you can get a taste of the education offered here.
