Hi,
We'd love some help this Spring from helpers who are creative and practical; a couple would be ideal as we are both sometimes at work.
It's an acre of wild tranquility in a North Devon Valley. We have a tiny polytunnel , a few raised beds, hens and bees (off site at present) We are trying to establish a more productive garden and make better us of our outbuildings. We are developing a little' Permaculture People Care Garden'.
If you are creative and practical and have a feel for natural gardens,then this would be a perfect place to spend some time and get some peace.
If you have practical outdoor DIY skills that would be good as we could do with a bit of help to reduce our 'to do' list. There are various projects to tackle, depending on your skills and interests. You might want to create a new hen house or paint the caravan, or build a pond, clear the bank, make a pretty rustic fence, build some vertical growing space or paint the kitchen. Maybe you like preparing firewood or could build an outdoor shower. If you could offer any of these things do get in touch. We like to give our helpers a task that they would enjoy to do, and in return you'll get good food and time to do your own thing too.
There is a little caravan or a little timber cabin that you can use during your stay. If things worked out there would be the possibility of something longer term in which case you could make improvements to the cabin and stay in return for ongoing help here.
This is a one-acre plot close to Barnstaple in a secluded little wooded valley on the outskirts of a small village.

We are developing our small plot along permaculture principles to fulfil its potential in terms of productivity and energy efficiency.
So bring your creativity and skills to this lovely part of Devon, with good public transport services and close to interesting market towns, beautiful coasts and excellent walking.

Happy to hear from you and have a chat,

Maz and Cliff
