It's coming up for that time of year again when the garden needs an autumn tidy up, the last of the fruit and veg picked, beds prepared for the winter and polytunnels tidied up. The autumn fruit picked and turned into jam along with some strimming, watering & weeding, composting, tidying & weeding. If you have any carpentry or joinery skills we have a few projects you may want to help us with - repairs to storm damaged polytunnel doors, building some planters, etc. If the weather is too wet or windy we will head indoors to do some painting, household chores and making jams, cleaning windows, etc.

Our place suits HelpXers that are hands-on, independent and practical and most importantly interested, love animals...chickens and dogs.... and don't mind getting your hands dirty...work is laid back and the radio is always on. We're not a farm...just a regular house with a very large allotment style fruit and veg garden where we grow our own fruit and veg.

We're Amanda and Steve and we live in a lovely village in South Aberdeenshire between Aberdeen (Approx 25 miles) and Dundee (35 miles). We have a relaxed and friendly home and in return for 25 hours a week (usually spread over 3 1/2 days) we offer accommodation in your own lovely room, bathroom, wifi, meals and laundry facilities. We all eat together, food is plentiful and tasty and we ask that HelpXers pitch in and help with prep and tidying up. If you can cook we'd love you to cook your favourite recipes for us.

We'd be delighted to help with ideas for day-trips, sightseeing and onward travel. Our village is small but very pretty and perfectly located for you to make the most of your days off and get out an about and see this wonderful part of Scotland. There's an excellent hourly bus service to/from our village to Aberdeen, Stonehaven and Montrose. We've got some bikes for you to go exploring. Steve works in Aberdeen so you are more than welcome to hitch a ride with him on your days off.

Want to HelpX with us? Send us a message telling us about yourself, what sort of work you're interested in and dates you are looking for.

Amanda and Steve
