We are renovating our old cottage and garden in a small village on the Suffolk/Cambridgeshire border. We are 20 minutes by train from famous historic Cambridge where you can go punting (see photo) and sightseeing. We are 5km from Newmarket where you can see the horses training or racing and we are also near historic Bury St Edmunds. We are gluten-free vegans starting to grow as much of our organic food as possible. We are artists as well as gardeners and enjoy cooking and meeting people. In the future we want to create a small retreat where people who are recovering from illness or need some time out from stress can come and stay and recuperate. We are looking for people to help us to finish our project, join in and swap knowledge, skills and experiences. In exchange for 4-5 hours a day with weekends free, we can offer accommodation,food, and transport if needed to and from local areas of interest or the train station. We are happy to provide non vegetarian food and are quite experienced at cooking around our own food intolerances so can accommodate this too. This summer we are looking for help with outside work such as digging holes for rainwater drainage , hard landscaping and clearing lots of rubble and bricks that have come from the renovations. We also need help with plastering some modern plastering but also traditional lime plastering.
