We have a beautiful small piece of land, around 1.5 acres, near Exeter in Devon. We are self building on a budget living off grid our ultimate aim to be as self sufficient as possible. I have 3 fab children, 2 big but very friendly ginger dogs, chickens and a couple of sheep to help keep the grass down when the mower is having a 'rest'. We are hoping to get some goats and some bees in the near future but will need to get some serious fencing fixed up to keep the allotment safe from those (the goats that is not the bees ;))
I work for a charity and also garden so there would be possible opportunities for paid work during a stay. We have a vegetable plot and I have a small, seasonal business selling cut flowers (which i'm desperatly trying to keep on top of) for local market and a wholesaler which creates a little extra income. I have applied for planning permission to start a community green waste composting site.
So we have lots of need for help in a wide range of projects from ge... more inside

We have lived at this property for five years and are trying to create a more self-sufficient small holding on our four acres. We have some mature fruit gardens and have planted an additional small orchard and forest garden. We have also planted a 'tree field', with willows and other trees for firewood - our house is heated using wood and solar - and mixed wood avenues which will make secluded areas in the future. We also have vegetable gardens, a polytunnel, bee hives and chickens. We have recently built a straw bale cottage for additional family accommodation, using rammed tyre foundations. We also have plans to build a log store and a yoga room.

We focus on establishing perennial, forest type gardens and using organic practices. There are many maintenance tasks around the property and in the gardens, which is why we require help from volunteers! We ask volunteers to work five days a week and to do five-six hours work per day - this is divided between hard and light physical... more inside

** Thank you to all who have replied - we are not looking for any more helpers now for a while. (Although if you have specific skills which match our projects listed below and would like to come later in the Spring/Summer you are still welcome to get in touch).

We are lucky enough to live on a beautiful 45 acre hill farm in rural Herefordshire with cattle and sheep. Please see our twitter account for a taste of our ethos and what drives us.
We have lots of projects we want to do with which we would love some help, and look forward to meeting new people, sharing new ideas and recipes and even learning some languages!

Renovating an old railway carriage into accommodation.
Further development of our flower and vegetable garden and polytunnel. (If we're honest 'rescue' ... more inside

My name is Andy and I am 37 years old. I live with my partner Joe in a town called Huddersfield which is in Yorkshire, in the North of England (UK).

I am now an experienced host and started this experience about 3 years ago. I have a rare medical condition, so needed help for this reason when I first started. My health has improved and I have continued with this experience, as I have made some great friends and so the journey continues :-)

I am well educated, traveled and lived abroad myself when I was younger. I enjoy helping or mentoring people who are visiting or planning to visit the UK. My partner Joe is a quiet person who likes reading, art, playing the guitar and takes a great interest in environmental issues. He has also made some good friendships with some of our former helpers.

I am a liberal person who appreciates people of a similar nature who want to learn more about this strange planet we all occupy, care about people and want to learn more about themselves. I... more inside

We are restoring this magnificent building into a health and well being centre for the whole community.We completed and opened phase one in June 2015. For full details please see out website, Facebook or Twitter pages.
We have a dedicated band of workers and volunteers but now urgently seek skilled plasterers and joiners and plumbers to help us with phases two and three of the restoration and are glad to offer accommodation and food in return for volunteer labour.
