Our land is half woods, half pasture. A beautiful valley close to South Brent in Devon.

Work this spring / summer is mainly woodland management, preparing firewood, milling, stacking & stripping timber, and looking after the poultry. There will also be a couple of events which I might require assistance with. At present I am very busy with paperwork for a planning appeal - so you need to be practical and responsible as you will be expected to complete jobs under your own steam.

We have also planted a tree nursery and orchard which requires care, organically reared chickens who need feeding.

Experienced or skilled / able volunteers most welcome.
Check the website and get in touch.

You will need to be self-motivated and able to cook for yourself (it's self-catering). I come in and out of the woods most days & do a weekly shop or as I can, or you can walk/cycle / hitch to the shops in South Brent / Totnes with ease.

Accommodation is in caravan or yurt. Self catering in a marquee kitchen, or in one of the caravans. There are compost toilets and a sauna by lake, and a river for washing plus a solar shower... (when you need you can always come to our house and the local pool & other services).

Hope you can help :)
Ideally you will have a drivers licence, and better still a chainsaw qualification - but these are not necessary.
Happy Helpx-ing
