The Esalen Inspirational Film Festival kicks off April 28. Limited space still available.


Get Involved

There are several ways to get your hands dirty in the Esalen Farm & Garden:

  • Workshops. Many Esalen workshops utilize the Farm & Garden space, connecting people with the land, themselves and each other. Workshop topics range from meditation in nature, landscape painting, herbalism, to food preservation. Check the Esalen catalog for availability.
  • Volunteering. Join the Farm and Garden crew to help harvest crops for the Esalen kitchen and tend the land. Those already visiting Esalen for a workshop or personal retreat are welcome to join our morning harvests; all others, please visit our Volunteer page to learn more about scheduling a volunteer day.
  • Apprenticeships. Our year-long Apprenticeship program invites a deeper connection to the land, offering a comprehensive education in growing healthy food and communities.
