GET TO KNOW US

BY VOLUNTEERING

Since we started back in 2015, Hempen has always been supported by people volunteering their time. It’s a wonderful way to meet new people on a similar journey, exchange information, to connect, and share our passion for all things hemp. We like to think it’s also a way of making organic hemp more accessible, too!

We are a not-for-profit social enterprise, run as a worker’s co-operative. You’ll be asked to get stuck in with us, pitch your tent next to the wonderful woods or bring along your own live-in vehicle. Come cook lunch with us, potter about the farm and lend a hand.

Any questions? Read through our Volunteer Page here or email volunteering@hempen.co.uk

About Us

Hempen began as an idea – to form a resilient rural community centred around the cultivation of hemp. We’d heard that this miracle plant could do so much, clothe us, house us, fuel us, feed us and heal us. So we wanted to practically work with hemp in a holistic, ethical and regenerative way.

Grow Hemp Campaign

If you’re from a bit further afield then stay over for a few days. We are limited on accommodation, so winters can be tricky if you’re not in your own live-in vehicle. When the sun shines, camping is beautiful here. You can get stuck into our flow and get involved with happenings in the co-operative, from helping in production to lending a hand around the farm!

Hempen Growing Solidarity Workshop

Growing Solidarity

On Wednesdays, we run our community outreach project, Growing Solidarity. If you’d like to take part and support people who face barriers to accessing the natural world, we’d love to hear from you. We are particularly keen to connect to people who are able to help others to get to the farm! If you have a car and can help to support it, give us a shout.
