We are a community of 4 families living independently and sustainably in 4 low-energy converted barns with wood heating and renewable energy.
We have 5 hectares of land (half of it young woodland) which needs upkeep and have a small orchard and vegetable garden that needs looking after. We all have jobs outside of Cwm Maddoc and so would benefit from help with land maintenance. We have work days occasionally and regular weekly gardening mornings.
We are in a beautiful rural location where transport is slightly difficult (irregular bus service). We have two self-contained spaces to accommodate people, a static caravan which has mains water and electricity, and a wooden cabin which is off-grid (with solar power and running water). Both have wood burners.
The surrounding areas of Herefordshire and Wales are stunningly beautiful with lovely walks, kayaking, wild swimming and cycling. The Black Mountains and Wye and Monnow Rivers are on the doorstep.
Summer life here is very sociable with outdoor spaces where we gather and eat together occasionally - and there's the outdoor cinema!
We have a regularly used sauna and bread/pizza oven.
August 2017 - we are currently working in the veg garden and the poly-tunnel planting, weeding, watering, edging, etc. Lots of mowing to do also. Other small projects for those with suitable skills e.g. Woodworking, painting, etc.
