This is a smallholding in Moray, NE Scotland. We are about 2 miles from the coast (Roseisle beach) and 5 miles from Findhorn. There is a spiritual/eco community, the Findhorn Foundation, beside Findhorn that focuses on sustainable living and is open to visitors. You can walk or cycle from Bruntlands along the beach to cafes etc at Burghead and Findhorn. Roseisle beach and forest is a very pretty area of public land. You can walk or cycle 1.5 miles to Alves to catch buses to local towns of Forres and Elgin. Bicycles are available to borrow.

We are looking for some people to help plant a small area of native woodland on farmland. The trees are mainly oak, cherry, birch, hazel. We anticipate 4 hours work per day in exchange for accomodation and food. We have various spaces for accomodation, 1 room in the farmhouse and a static caravan with gas heater, cooking and hot water. it has its own toilet and shower.

3 couples and 2 dogs stay on the farm. We don't have any livestock at the moment.

The work involves taking tree seedlings, planting them and installing stakes and tubes to protect the trees. Tools are provided. A reasonable level of fitness will be required. You would need to bring suitable clothing including waterproofs.
