Although Hempen was manifested without much start-up capital, we did have lots of start-up love and effort from so many wonderful people! You folks help Hempen be what it is, thank you!

Hempen is dedicated to building strong relationships and offering opportunities in and across communities. The work we do is wide-ranging, collaborative and social. We offer regular volunteering opportunities for people living locally and short term residential volunteering for people living further afield.

If you would like to volunteer please fill out the application form HERE
We hope to learn a little about you, and work out how you might best get involved when you visit. 

We want to make our farm as inclusive as possible. Please let us know if there are things we can do to help you access the site and participate fully in the community.

covid-19 update:

We have had to pause volunteering for the time being but as the situation continues to develop we are exploring ways to host volunteering in ways that minimise harm and maximise wellbeing

Feel free to email volunteer@hempen.co.uk for the latest updates on this.

hemp on our farm...

If you are visiting this page, you probably think that hemp is fantastic. We agree. At Hempen we offer a Consultancy Service to help other farms grow hemp  and on our site we are not currently growing but we are processing a lot of hemp! For more details read our growing update in our blog.  

For now we cannot offer opportunities to work with the plant in the field but the farm is still a hive of activity: making, growing food, fixing, community cooking…and much more!
