Volunteers Summer 2020

Dear Chuckleberry Community farm,

When we came here, we had in mind quite a work driven experience and tons of learning about farming in a conscious mindset. We ended up having one of the best surprises; getting the chance to discover more about ourselves and about authentic people with whom we had amazing conversations: talking about food in another way, about old negative patterns in  life, about positivity, sustainability and much more. Time  is warped at ChuckleBerry, as you see the days go by and the weeks passing, you can really feel, deep in you, the process of your whole being going through a lot of personal growth.

It was amazing and enlightning to see the effects that a healthy community can have on a single soul. Even more amazing to bring our time and support to a farm like this, helping it grow and change the world, one person at a time.

Clément and Maude.

All the best to you all.
Stay safe and stay your awesome selves.

Volunteers Spring 2020

This place was beyond anything we ever could have anticipated…

We came to learn about growing microgreens and living in community, and we left with such an expanded understanding of ourselves. We had been traveling and searching for who we really are and we found it at this little community in Nelson. This place is perfect for cultivating emotional and spiritual growth and has completely refined what it means to be in relationship with yourself and others. The environment Jon has created is so conducive to making meaningful connections, the feelings of safety, security, and vulnerability are unimaginable, this is a place where you can truly be yourself and learn what it means to be whole and human.

If you come here your consciousness is sure to expand whether you like it or not. Jon is an incredible mentor and friend with so much wisdom he deserves to be right up alongside Eckhart and other spiritual teachers of this generation. The adventure is not easy one and will push your boundaries every step of the way, but it is such a worthwhile trip. When we first arrived this place felt foreign to anything we’d experienced in the past. We planned to stay for three months, ended up staying for five and when we left everyone there was nothing short of family. The relationships and connections you will make here will probably be deeper than most in your life and my god is it fulfilling. We would highly recommend this place to anyone we come in contact with, it is a safe haven for anyone willing to explore alternative ways of living and themselves.

Thanks, Jon and everyone else for pushing us to grow, we definitely left as better people.

Much love, Emily and Matt <3

ps. Emotional Intelligence is awesome 🙂

Volunteer from Februari 2019 till Februari 2020

After having been there for one year, I can say that I have an unconditional love for the farm, for the people that I met there and for Jon, who more than being the owner of the place, he became the person that guided me in the most beautiful self-discovery.

I never thought of being in the farm for than 3 months, but every time that I thought to leave, I discovered a new challenge inside me. From my experience, the most incredible thing about this place is that it gives you opportunities to be present with every part of you. And even better, you can do it in a safe and supportive environment, where you find that there are others feel like you and you are not alone. At Chuckleberry situations that are perceived as obstacles, become a source of learning and allow you to connect more and more with who you really are. In this farm, you are welcome to be yourself without any fear of being judged. In this way, I never felt more free!

So get ready not only to learn about sustainability, or to work in the greenhouse with the most magical and fierce microgreens; to be smelly after hard work in the compost room, or to work outside with the snow in the winter and with all the vegetable in the summer. Prepare yourself for the challenges of self-discovery, for the creation of  new relationships that will become like family bonds, for the most healthy connections and communication, to explore the word beyond your barriers, to leave behind for a moment the craziness of social media to be completely enjoying the present moment, to eat delicious and healthy food facing the most beautiful view you can ever have; to start the mornings with a sky painted in orange and blue and to go to the bed with a sky full of stars. Get ready to improve your cooking skills, exercise your body, mind and emotions; to not to be afraid of being vulnerable and to be able to create empathy and compassion for others; to see how the time changes drastically, to have always somebody to support you, to dance, meditate, sitting outside to enjoy the sun or inside next to the chimney; to read a book on the sofa or do yoga in the practice room; to fall in love, laugh, cry, for the most emotional moments of happiness, joy and peace, and for a journey full of adventures and love.

Being part of the Chuckleberry community is something that I will never forget!
