We are an English couple with chickens and cats living on a 7 hectare Permaculture Forest Garden which we have developed over the last 14 years, it is a mature example and one of the largest in Europe.We are aiming to be as self sufficient as poss and are currently extending our forest garden,designing and planting a new 2 hectare area. It is a big project and we would love to have helpers interested in this project and the field of forest gardening who are also willing to do other seasonal work on the farm.We are particularly interested in having PDC graduates who want to take their learning a bit further and gain practical experience.
We run Introduction to Forest Gardening Open Days once a month and other workshops on sustainability.
The farm runs on solar energy,we have our own springs and there are compost toilets (as shown in photo).
We are currently urgently looking for a couple/or 2 men to help with all farm tasks while Annie is away and Toivo needs help,Stays are usually for 1-2 weeks but we are open to a longer period if we all get on well.
We look forward to meeting you!
