The space here has evolved over the last 25 years from a collection of dilapidated farm buildings to what is now a hub of small scale organic farming, micro businesses and education.

There are always things going on here, from monthly markets to the little music festival we run.

We are looking for volunteers to help manage our organic walled garden which supplies an onsite cafe and any events here. As of 2015 the garden is a social enterprise in its own right and is just one part of a very unique set up where we aim to share our space to provide learning opportunities, responsible and interesting places for people to build their businesses, and unique homes for people to live. The heart of the place is the garden, it's where our food comes from and we aim to be in a position where the garden and what's growing determines our offering and events programme. This is a great opportunity to learn about permaculture, organics and sustainable living in a place where there is space to bring your ideas and experience to the table and really make a difference.

This is a family place run by a few sisters and their parents, but there is a great community of people in the village who frequent the stable yard and get involved.

Accommodation options vary from self-cater self-contained flats to single rooms within shared accommodation. You will benefit from the best fresh organic produce, excellent company (if you want it!) and live within a stone's throw of one of the smallest pubs in England where local ale comes straight from the barrel.

We are looking for volunteers from the beginning of March 2018 and throughout the summer. We would prefer volunteers who are keen to stay for a month or more but we are flexible and open to ideas.
