We have 8 acres of woodland with streams and river - good for walking, as is nearby Bodmin moor. We are about 30 minutes from the nearest seaside and 10 minutes from the nearest town, Callington. Our vegetable garden is raised beds on a sloping site, soft fruit area and orchard. We have a friendy cat, Maisie.

We live in an eco-house which we designed and did a lot of the work on. We generate our own electricity by a photo voltaic system and our water supply is from a woodland spring. Accommodation is comfortable - own double room. We are not vegetarian but are happy to cater for vegetarians.. We have good wireless internet access.

Help mostly needed in woodlands and garden - getting in wood, and maintaining paths, clearing brambles etc. We are affiliated with an organic growing project which delivers veg boxes in the área, and usually our volunteers spend some time there helping out and meeting more people.

Our daughter and family are next door and also need help in their woodlands. So helpers can have more variety and young company. Jess is a botanical illustrator, basket and coffin-maker (for green burials), giving classes on these and other art/craft activities. She is also a keen climber.

We also need to make barrier fences -chestnut, willow and hazel. We would be learning how to do this with helpers!
