Help at Pillapalu Forest Retreat in Estonia
Volunteering in Estonia – We are super friendly if you are 🙂 – We have travelled all over the world and so understand the needs of travellers and volunteers. We are a small family business, including Cookie & Poppy (the dogs), plus some friends help out now and then. If you enjoy nature and don’t mind hard work this is a great place to volunteer 🙂

What are you looking for help with?
What’s the mission of your community? 🎯
We are setting an example of how forest owners can produce revenue without cutting down trees. Our services and products will be replicable and help protect forests.
We do this by creating a wide range of NWFPs. NWFPs are non-wood forest products (and services) such as botanical products made from flowers, roots, berries and mushrooms. Our services will include foraging, cooking, spa and other nature-related packages and experiences for family, friends and business groups.
