Passionate about hemp? Enthused by co-operative living? Need to get away from the bustle of the big city? Or just plain curious?

Like a glorious tree, our volunteer family grows larger each year. Since our journey began, way back in 2015, hundreds of volunteers have offered their skills and creativity to Hempen’s mission. We are so grateful to all the wonderful humans who have given time to planting seeds, digging soil, gathering wood, painting signs, compiling spreadsheets, chopping vegetables and of course, harvesting hemp!

Together we are demonstrating what rural sustainable livelihoods built on organic hemp agriculture in the UK looks like. We are proving what this plant can do for people, community and planet.

Placement Volunteerships

Hempen’s Placement Volunteerships offer the chance to build and exchange skills in the co-operative and community for an agreed period of time.

Volunteers gain experience professionally with a structured and meaningful placement plan, whilst growing personally.

Keep an eye out for volunteering placement updates here or get in touch to collectively draft a proposal.
