Volunteer Service

Join us for a month of mindful service and retreat. Volunteer service is a meaningful way to contribute to Hollyhock’s mission. Immerse yourself in a month-long stay on extraordinary Cortes Island.

Your month-long stay will include:

  • 30 hours/week of active service alongside our staff, including kitchen, housekeeping, garden, hosting, store and production departments.
  • 3 scrumptious Hollyhock meals each day
  • Shared accommodation with other volunteers
  • 4 hours/week of dedicated yoga, personal growth and mindfulness practices
  • Access to a variety of onsite amenities, including ocean-view hot tubs, presenter evenings, oyster BBQs, morning rows, guided hikes, and more.

Hollyhock provides a limited number of placements. Successful applicants become integral members of our team. 

Our ideal volunteer: 

  • Has a positive and helpful attitude, as well as good mental and physical stamina
  • Enjoys being around and working with others
  • Doesn’t mind doing washing up and making beds as well as a variety of other essential tasks
  • Interested in learning and personal growth

I can not remember a more meaningful, magical, momentous month in all my life. Truly!! – Past Volunteer
