*********** Looking for carpentry, building and forestry helpers in Scotland for a week in 2016 ************

Hello,

We are looking for 1 or 2 physically strong people to help thin-out our 14 acre area of woodland in Scotland.

We’d also like to build a storage hut for the woods. The woods are about a 40 minute drive from our home but a hut could be built in stages back at our house in Aberfeldy and taken up ‘flat pack’ style so if you have experience in carpentry and building we’d love to hear from you. We have made a similar hut before so we can work with you and show you how it's done if it's not something you are familiar with.

We’d really appreciate it if you have a spare week to help with the heavy lifting and carrying - experience with using a chainsaw would be a great bonus too if you have it.

When we are not up at the forest, the tasks available at our house would be general maintenance outside: painting, putting up fences, log splitting and stacking, grass... more inside

Small friendly organic market garden in west of Scotland with herd of milking goats, about ten miles from Glasgow city centre. We set up the farm 25 years ago to provide young people with training in natural goat-keeping and all aspects of organic growing, such as permaculture. biodynamic methods and other innovative and time-saving methods.

We are looking for volunteers to join us for long or short stays (minimum three weeks) who want to know more about goats, growing food and survival methods such as saving seed. In return for about six hours work a day you will enjoy healthy organic food and stay in a heated caravan.

The work can sometimes be hard but we have a lot of fun!

Sadly these days, since we had some crazy folk here in the past, we have found that we have to ask people wanting to come and live with us for a reference, and to let us have the name,occupation,(farmer, other host, previous boss, lecturer or teacher) and telephone number of the referee. We have had ... more inside

We are a small holding on the Southern slopes of the Lammermuir hills looking out over the Tweed valley towards the Cheviot hills. This is a very peaceful rural location. We are renovating an old farm cottage using green oak framing and traditional stone mason skills. Anyone with these skills or enthusiasm to learn and good attention to detail will be most welcome. There will be additional opportunities to use or develop skills in timber frame building and welding. We keep a small flock of geese and assistance with these and general household tasks is also on the agenda. Simon is a forest manager and part-time saw miller so there will be opportunities to use or develop skills in these fields too. We stay in a mobile home with wood burner and compost loo. We also have a wood fuelled hot water boiler to provide baths/showers. We usually prepare and eat meals communally. Sleeping accommodation for visitors is in a separate touring caravan. We have no children but a dog who thinks s... more inside

My partner and I and two young children (2 and under) live in a village with the nearest town being 3 miles away (Biggar) where a bus can be taken. Edinburgh is about 25 miles and Glasgow just under 40 miles away.

We both have agricultural related jobs but we do not live on a farm. I have just returned back to work after being on maternity leave. I am looking for someone who can help for about 4 hours a day for their meals and a bed for the night. Work may involve gardening including weeding, planting, harvesting, lawn mowing, strimming, or painting fences. Indoor work may include help with general household chores. We have not lived here long so we are doing a few home improvements we might need a bit of help with, such as painting. You don't need to have experience with children but to like children would be good. Help might be needed to assist me with the children. If you enjoy cooking then your time could be used to help with cooking meals for the family. I myself e... more inside

Small scale (mostly seasonal) B&B in Highland coastal village requires help with all domestic duties, gardening, maintenance etc! Must like Jack Russells!!!! I am also a singer so a bit of 'roadie-ing' perhaps - plus I have a vintage clothing shop and on line business - so this placement would suit someone who likes variety, is creative and happy to just get stuck in with whatever needs to be done.

It's coming up for that time of year again when the garden needs an autumn tidy up, the last of the fruit and veg picked, beds prepared for the winter and polytunnels tidied up. The autumn fruit picked and turned into jam along with some strimming, watering & weeding, composting, tidying & weeding. If you have any carpentry or joinery skills we have a few projects you may want to help us with - repairs to storm damaged polytunnel doors, building some planters, etc. If the weather is too wet or windy we will head indoors to do some painting, household chores and making jams, cleaning windows, etc.

Our place suits HelpXers that are hands-on, independent and practical and most importantly interested, love animals...chickens and dogs.... and don't mind getting your hands dirty...work is laid back and the radio is always on. We're not a farm...just a regular house with a very large allotment style fruit and veg garden where we grow our own fruit and veg.

We're Amanda and Stev... more inside

We are a 4th generation family farm based at the foot of the Pentland hills. We are predominantly a pasture farm (sheep, beef cattle and pigs) and also have a certain amount of woodland. We rent out a number of our farm cottages as another arm of our business. Currently we are looking for help on the farm and in the garden to assist us with a diverse range of jobs. Those jobs range from grass cutting, hedge trimming, weed wacking, woodland management, fencing care, animal husbandry and all sorts of other general maintenance.

We are providing self-contained heated accommodation with two bedrooms, a kitchen and utility room, living room/studio and bathroom. We will be organising meals on a case by case basis. We as a family are excited to share several meals a week with our guests but we also respect personal space so provisions for food or a weekly organic food box (csa) can also be arranged.

We expect our guests experience to be a rich exchange of knowledge. We consider ours... more inside
