How to join
We welcome you to Osho Garden, a non-profit organization where we share information about meditation, oriental and western natural remedies, health food and how to grow and prepare your own. There are several ways in which you can participate as a visitor or working guest or as a participant or a facilitator in a workshop.
All participants are registered as members or volunteer workers. Members pay a contribution to our association to cover expenses. This includes vegetarian/vegan meals, accommodation, energy use and Internet access.
We are looking for volunteers who want to participate in our program of daily Yoga and meditation, can commit themselves for a longer term involvement and have specific skills and experience in cooking, organic gardening, carpentry or other technical work.
Volunteer workers who commit themselves to working an average of 25 hours per week do not pay for their food and accommodation. But we do not cover travel expenses, medical expenses and insurances.
For our daily schedule and more information, please read The Osho Garden Guidelines
You need to present a valid passport or ID card. Non-EU citizens must have a valid tourist visa (no work permit required). You need to sign a volunteer agreement upon arrival, see below.
In order to apply for a visit:
Decide when you want to come and for how long, and email us your request at info[at]oshogarden.net*. We will send you a short application form by email. We are asking where you live, what your main education and work experience is, and whether you have any diet requirements or health issues that may be relevant to your stay here, plus a picture. We will decide about your request soon after receiving your application.
