Our Work Exchange Team

Mana would not be what it is without the amazing contributions of work exchange wwoofers (willing workers on organic farms) and volunteers. Get in touch if you would like to contribute.

Our Founders

Mana was founded in the early 80’s by Rainer Huebner, Shanti Huebner & Sol Petersen (below picture from left to right).
