Serving Mother Earth-What You Can Do

It takes a lot to keep a piece of land such as Annwfn going, let alone to make worthwhile improvements. There is no "man behind the curtain" here; it is up to all of us who care about Annwfn to join in and create!

Volunteering is essential to Annwfn's continued survival and maintenance. If you have a few hours, days or weeks to contribute, check with the Annwfn Caretakers as to what needs doing at any given time. For some tasks (especially if marked *) you might need to ask them for specific details. Phone or text (707) 321-6529.

If you only get a couple of weeks vacation per year, consider coming to Annwfn for some part of it. Get that great feeling of helping maintain your Sanctuary while getting really healthy exercise, delightful tranquility and spiritual renewal.
