We live on the outskirts of York, near the racecourse. We have a garden and grow fruit and vegetables on our allotment.

The work includes digging, weeding, fence building and painting. We'll also be tackling a neglected allotment, reorganising the layout and making new beds.

From early summer fruit and vegetables are ready to be harvested and prepared for freezing and conserving.
If the weather is bad then there are usually jobs to get on with in the house, garage and greenhouse.

We really enjoy meeting people from different countries and exchanging conversation about language, food and culture.

We can offer all meals, laundry and accommodation, (in a double bed/own bathroom), in return for a helping hand, usually around 4 hours a day, although we're very flexible when it comes to fitting in trips and visits.

Non smokers only.

We only have people for short stays, about 7-10 days.

We are situated 2km from the centre of the historic city of York.

We are based in a Grade II* Romantic Gothic mansion located just south of the English Lake District. It is situated in 70 acres of woodland and gardens on the shores of Morecambe Bay. It provides a quiet and reflective environment for a meaningful break.

The help required is varied and might include cooking, helping in the garden, household, doing office tasks, decorating etc. We also have various building projects at present that you could get involved in. We are always interested to hear about any specific skills you may be able to offer. Although the work is not always strenuous you will need to be reasonably fit and active to come on a volunteering visit.

In the Kadampa Art Studio there is scope to volunteer in the Finishing Team, assisting with sanding and filling etc. of Statues and Temple Adornments bound for destinations around the world. Short and longterm voluntary visits are available.

Your weekends are free time so an ideal time to travel into the Lakes, Conist... more inside

An inspirational sanctuary based in a tranquil countryside setting a short walk away from one of North Devonís most beautiful beaches.
We would love an animal friendly person to exchange help for accommodation and lovely food.
We require someone who can be good with cleaning and housekeeping.
THE MAIN WORK WE NEED FOR SUMMER AND AUTUMN IS HOUSEWORK AND POO PICKING HORSES.
Just a few things before you consider applying.
We have had many wonderful volunteers now for a number of years so know very well what fantastic work a committed volunteer is capable of.
Unfortunately we have recently had a run of volunteers who haven't made it past their trial period. Mainly because they have come here and not been helpful at all!
Please don't come expecting us to cook and clean up after you and not pull your weight as you just will not make it past your trial period and that is a waste of everyone's time that needs to be spent rescuing animals!
So please consider your intentions befor... more inside

Looking for help between 20th Nov - Dec 2017.

We live by the sea in Devon in the South West of England, half an hour from the wonderful Dartmoor National Park, 25 minutes from the beautiful city of Exeter, the nearest train station with trains to London every couple of hours is just a short walk away.

We live 5 walk minutes from the beach and harbour.

In exchange for about 4 hours work a day, 5 days a week, you will have your own room (with a view of the sea), decent wifi and all meals, including a packed lunch if you are going out for the day. We eat a mostly vegetarian diet, but eat wild or free range meat occasionally. The helping hours you are required to do need to be flexible around the family - depending what needs doing that day - but ideally if you are confident to cook the evening meal for the majority of the week, and do an hour or two housework, working on your own that's great. It is usual to just see what needs doing and lend a hand, walking the dog or help... more inside

We are looking for people from February 2018 and for the rest of the year.

Whilst we do prefer longer stays we will occasionally take people for as little as 3 weeks. But not less than 3 weeks.

We have a small holding in Devon where we keep poultry (Chickens, various ducks, and geese) and bees. We also have cats who share our house. We have a small orchard and a Kitchen Garden plus an acre of gardens. The poultry are not for eating, but do provide us with a plentiful supply of eggs.
Although not self sufficient in fruit and vegetables we do try to grow what we can, so there is usually fresh veg in season.

All that we do here is on an organic basis often growing heritage varieties of fruit and vegetables.

The help that we need on a daily basis involves care of the poultry:
Letting them out in the morning, 8am, checking they have sufficient clean water, collecting and dating eggs.
Feeding and watering them in the evening and shutting them in their houses. Secondary... more inside
