Farmings Feats

A transformative journey as you live and volunteer on a farm!

Agriculture is the mainstay of Spiti’s economy however, it’s limited to only one crop a year due to the difficult climatic conditions the farmers face in this cold desert region. These farmers sweat their hearts out during the short summers as the entire year’s livelihood depends on it. The population being so small, every pair of helping hands is of great value to them!

Working on a farm at 12000+ ft in Spiti valley is a transformative experience where time slows down, and the rhythmic pulse of nature guides your every step!

  • Immerse yourself in the vibrant fabric of Spiti’s community as you gain a direct insight into their lives, traditions, and values, as you lend a helping hand. Feel the warmth of their hospitality, forge deep connections, and witness the resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity.
  • Get to know your host family and help out with daily farming and household chores. Exchange stories and cups of tea as you toil together on the land.
  • Introduce yourself to the unique agricultural and irrigation practices of the high cold desert Himalayas and understand the intricacies of water management and the fragile relationship it shares with the ecology.
  • Surrender to the gentle embrace of nature and reawaken your senses to the symphony of life that unfolds with each sunrise. Slow down the relentless pace of your fast-paced life and reconnect with the innate harmony of the natural world.
  • Embrace the simplicity of farm life, where your days come alive with the rising sun, accompanied by the melodious chorus of chirping birds and the joyful laughter of families tending to the land.

This extraordinary opportunity invites you to redefine your connection with the world and unlock the treasures of inner growth and self-realization. Embrace the simplicity and wisdom of life in sync with nature, where the digital noise fades into insignificance and the whisper of the wind carries profound truths.

Discover the resilience of the human spirit, the profound beauty of the land, and the transformative power of connecting with a community that has sustained itself against all odds!

Minimum commitment:

If you feel you are up for living and helping out on a farm for a minimum of 5 days (excluding travel time), we would love to have you over! It would be great if you can come for longer as in our experience, it takes a few days to settle in and acclimatize to the altitude before you can meaningfully begin volunteering.

Accommodation & Meals:

Your stay and all meals will be with your host family. You will either get a separate room or shared room with a common toilet. 

Please note:

  • You are expected to have a good level of commitment while volunteering on the farm. 
  • Volunteers are treated as family members and not as clients. So if you expect otherwise or have any concerns do let us know beforehand or speak with the Ecosphere management team immediately. If it is within our means we will do our best to address your concern. If the family feels that you do not fit, you will be requested to leave. 
  • If you’re keen to travel around Spiti, please keep a few extra days before or after your volunteering period.
  • Families in Spiti are not well off, hence we expect that you cover your costs for stay and food.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Ecosphere


    Please note: minimum volunteering period is 6 days
