Do you want some adventurous change in your life? Come to our eco-farm for simple, rustic living and volunteer! We’ll give you a guaranteed change through a chance to contribute to the growing organic farming and green rural development movement and to make a difference in the world.

Don’t expect shopping malls, nightclubs, entertainment, gourmet food and alcohol…

Do expect organic farming in harmony with nature on the edge of a jungle in a tribal area, the opportunity for yoga, meditation, mystical experience, encounters with unusual characters, temple bells, chanting, experience of Hindu pilgrim village, of a tribal peoples, vegetarian Indian food and adventure!


Saha Astitva is based close to the city of Mumbai, (3 hours by public transport), around the village of Ganeshpuri. The weather varies from extremely hot (March-June, October) to moderate (June-September, which is monsoon season) and then moderate again in winter (November-February).

Our volunteer’s program hosts people from India as well as from countries abroad, 75% of those volunteers coming through the WWOOF network. We welcome committed volunteers with a dedicated and flexible spirit to embrace this unique opportunity to experience rural India through our providing of a grassroots insight into natural, organic farming combined with ecological, sociological & cultural factors. Since we are unfortunately not yet economically sustainable, we ask for a fixed contribution towards your upkeep. See rates here.

“Both of us arrived a month ago for our first experience of WWOOFing! We chose your farm out of a list of many. We didn’t know where we were going and what it would be like. But wow!!! Really! It was such a wonderful experience! I had that opportunity to discover more than a farm…” “… I couldn’t ask for more…That month was full of surprises and adventures…”  Rachel, WWOOFing volunteer from Canada 

Get involved, help others, see life differently!
