We have vacancies from May to September, and we much prefer to host couples or two close friends, ideally with previous HelpX references.

Would you like to stay with two professional garden writers? We're looking for bright, enthusiastic, responsible people to help with household management, cleaning, gardening, DIY and odd jobs.

We have three domestic organic gardens which include a small fruit garden, greenhouse, free-range chickens, herbs and vegetable beds that we use for our own food. We also photograph our gardens for books and magazines, so we love trying new things. We can help to teach all the basics required for organic gardening as well as key skills for interesting practical projects. That said, we'd love to hear from you if you have gardening skills already!

Although we live in the centre of a beautiful historic town, we have a peaceful, comfortable house and we're just 50 minutes by train from central London and a bus ride away from stunning 'Constable country' and sandy beaches.

Accommodation is in a comfortable (but basic) private room, in exchange for around six hours work, five days per week. Delicious vegetarian food provided... breakfast is self-service and lunch & dinner are cooked for you.

Stays are 2-4 weeks at first, but there is potential for longer placements if we all get along well.
