How Can I Help?
Helper weeks are for all ages. Great if you’re interested in visiting for the first time or you have been before and wish to help in the maintenance and upkeep of the retreat.
These weeks are held several times a year and are a great way of getting away, meeting new people and spending time in a positive environment. We always have fun and include a mix of planned projects, leisure activities and chill time.
Activities are decided upon by the people staying and can include things such as:
Property development and maintenance
Beach/ bush walks
Outside fire with drumming and music
Games and more!
The retreat accepts wwoofers (willing workers on organic farms) mainly during Helper Weeks which is when the retreat is given some TLC. Wwoofers are expected to work 4 hrs a day in return for food and board. If you’re an international visitor you’ll get the chance to mix with like minded locals, along with other WWOOFers.

Antara relies on it's charity auction as well as automatic payments from its supporters. We always are grateful to hear from people willing to commit to supporting this important area.
