Come and volunteer at our permaculture community!

We are a workers Co-op of 2 families, both with home educated children. We live on a beautiful small holding, 2 miles from Durham city and with good public transport routes. We are practicing permaculture, growing organice vegetables and salads for our customer's. We have a flock of hens and sheeep, 3 bee hives, woodland, river, fruit bushes, willow coppice for basketry. We run various courses too, some of which you may be able to atttend.

We need help in our commercial vegetable garden, helping to feed the hens and possibly some basic D.I.Y. and possibly some help in our house.

You would be able to stay in our little eco structure. and often be able socialise with other volunteers. We will give you healthy organic ingrediants to cook your own food and we will sometimes eat together too. We can cater for vegans, vegetarians, meat eaters and gluten free.

We live a very low impact lifestyle and we are off grid. There is a little ligjtimg in the structure but your electrical items would need to be charged up in our straw bale house. There is no toilet or bathroom in the structure itself but instead there are compost squat toilets. There is no bathroom on site so washing is done in a bowl, using a campimg shower in the woods , dipping in the river, going to the sports centre in town to use thier showers!

This post would suit somone who would like to be apart of an alternative community for a while, enjoy seeing permaculture in action and being outside with nature.
We would like you to help monday -friday 10 am - 4pm

Our interests include: permaculture yoga, meditation, crafts, dancing , practicing Non Violent Communication, transition towns, local food, compassionate living, sunbathing!!
