We have spaces in September 2019 and onwards(now full this summer) Please note we only offer short 7 to 10 day stays.
We need helpers to have a good conversational level of spoken English

We are a family with an organic smallholding run on Permaculture principles and a 8.5 Acre coppice woodland and we welcome volunteers for periods of 7 to 10 days to live with us and help us with our work.
* We try to be as self reliant as possible without being fanatical about it.
* We are structureing our garden on Permaculture principles
* We aim to recycle our rainwater and grey water through a reed bed.
* We use solar energy and waste wood wood to heat our home and to cook with. We use solar electricity with battery backup to lower our use of mains power.
* We want to consume less and recycle more
* We grow and eat our own vegetables, fruit, eggs and honey or trade with others where we cant grow our own.
* We create all of this ourselves (DIY) where possible from recycled materials.

We are active supporters of Extinction Rebellion and the Green party and try to build our thinking around fighting climate change and adapting to it.

Our winter work is often in our 3.5 Hectare ancient woodland which we manage for wildlife and coppice for timber for fuel and building
