Please spread the word - all the job details are here.


June 29 & 30 2019: WOW!

THANK YOU to everyone who joined us from near and far to celebrate 20 years of Adam Sutherland as director and 10 years of life at Lawson Park - and to the amazing team who built, cooked, cleaned, gardened and drove about to make it all work smoothly. We're all a bit tired and emotional now, to say the least.

We've had some amazing feedback already, and look forward to producing even more inspiring projects at Lawson Park and in the rest of the world with partners old and new. 


Introducing Emma!

Emma Sumner joined us lately to take the reins of a number of projects, especially our big weekender June 29/30. She did an amazing job on it, we couldn't have managed without her.


Last Volunteer Call: Nov 20-25

Our next and last call to volunteer with us for the last available week of Nov 20-25 is now open until July 29th.

Travel over here for application details.

We just said goodbye to June's volunteers (pictured from L to R - Lucy, Sophie, Nikita & Eliza) who did amazing work across Lawson Park's gardens, craft & building projects.We've had 20 residential volunteers already this year at Lawson Park - Thank you to each and every one of you.

If you recently applied to volunteer - thanks - we've notified successful applicants now.
