Flexible term
Ages 25+
SOOP

 

 

Koinonia Farm is an intentional Christian community and the birthplace of a number of well-known projects, including Habitat for Humanity, Jubilee Partners, the Fuller Center for Housing, and the Georgia Peace and Justice Coalition. Our 573 acres of land in rural southwest Georgia is home to large pecan orchards, pasture for grass-fed beef, organic gardens, wooded areas including a Peace Trail, and the main campus with a museum, store, bakery, dining hall, office and community housing. Koinonia operates its farm, bakery, and mail order business in order to support its ministries and to sustain life together in community.

Service opportunities include working alongside the staff in various activities and projects on the farm. Volunteers are welcome to stay in our on-site housing, which includes one-bedroom apartments, 2–4-bedroom houses, and a larger dormitory. We also have full RV hookups available. We share dinner together Monday through Friday. Once a week, volunteers share a potluck meal. All other meals are on your own.

Our terms begin in February, May, September and October, and can last from 1-3 months depending on the term.
