This is a farm-based education organisation. Our story is the 'shieling' - a tradition where folk went up to the hills with the livestock every summer. Schools, teachers and local community visit our site to learn about the shieling and through it the Highland landscape, heritage and sustainable lifestyles. We are looking for volunteers to help us run our small farm (croft) and support our educational provision. You will be able to help restore traditional buildings, build new sustainable educational buildings, work in our micro-dairy, and garden, as well as keeping the educational facilities clean and organised (it doesn't take long for kids to make a mess!). You won't be expected to deliver education, but will be able to support our staff and take part in learning - from Gaelic songs and stories, to dairying and archaeology. You will have accommodation in our staff house, with your own room and shared washing and cooking rooms. Some weeks we have lots of visitors and some we don't so sometimes you will need to be entertain yourselves (couples or friends coming together is a good idea). We would expect a minimum of 4 hours work a day, which gives you lots of time to explore our beautiful glen. The project is quite remote down a 2 mile rough track so a bike is a useful thing! We will provide breakfast and dinner (a lot of it from our garden), you will need to sort snacks and lunch for yourself.
