We live on the outskirts of York, near the racecourse. We have a garden and grow fruit and vegetables on our allotment. We`re a family of musicians so if you come then you`re likely to hear us, (and to join in if you like!).

We try to cultivate using the `no-dig` method and to re-use and recycle wherever possible.
Our house has solar panels on the roof for water and electricity as we are keen to reduce our impact on the environment.

We enjoy meeting people from all over the world and have made some wonderful friends in the process.

The work includes turning and spreading compost, weeding, seed sowing, planting out, grass cutting and fence 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 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, 5 days a week, or equivalent, although we`re very flexible when it comes to fitting in trips and visits.

Non smokers only.

We usually only have people for short stays, between 1-2 weeks.

We are situated 2km from the centre of the historic city of York.
Easy links for bus and rail connections to London (2 hours), Yorkshire coast, Dales and North York Moors.
