----------------------
Hi I am looking for help on my organic allotment, I need help building a solid shed, a poly-tunnel, clearing and preparing raised beds and creating paths. The area is 300 sq meters and is on a wonderful sunny slope.

I also need help with renovating my house which is 1.5 km (20 minutes) away from the allotment. Jobs include some plastering, landscaping of back yard, some basic plumbing and decorating.

I live in Sheffield with easy access to the Peak District both by public transport and car. It is an ideal location for anyone interested in climbing as the famous Stanedge Edge (see the picture below) is 20 minutes away. There is also indoor climbing centers 10 minutes walk. The Peak District is ideal for other outdoor pursuits including hang-gliding, bouldering, mountain biking or general hiking. I am a keen walker myself and can give you some advice on trips and the local library can provide you with guide books and maps if necessary.

I am very flexible about length of stay, anything from 3 days really. I am looking for around 4-5 hours help per day, probably in the mornings which would leave you with the rest of the day free or an 8 hour day and then a day off.

In exchange you will get free accommodation in a very large double room (see the picture) and 3 meals a day. I am a good cook and you will never go hungry, but if you have a special dish that you like cooking or which is typical for your home country I would look forward to it.

I live next to a very good Italian cafe and my favorite pub is only a 10 mins walk. On one of your first days here we might go there to get to know each other and to introduce you to English Pub Culture.
