I am a retired English teacher with an interest in all things organic. I live with my husband Richard who is a computer manager, and our newest family member, a rather naughty little puppy.
We have built a straw bale house in our garden, We keep bees and run a Community Orchard. We are looking for a native Spanish speaker with a good accent to speak Spanish to our grandchildren, who live down the road from me. They are 3 and 5 years old.
We will probably now not need any help until the Spring, February at the earliest. Then we have decking to power wash and re-paint, sails to put in place, some painting - both external and internal - and a brick walll to build.
Plus the normal garden, house and child care work.
In return I will help the volunteer to improve their English, and you have a nice bedroom and bathroom and good food which is mainly vegetarian.
We have an internationally renowned Art Gallery in Wakefield, a wonderful Sculpture Park, and the University city of Le... more inside

We are looking for one or two helpers as soon as possible. We have a large garden - our own vegetables and orchard - that needs a lot of attention and a few painting jobs. There are lots of little children around too so it would be nice to play with them as well. They love new people!
We have 6 grown up children who are in and out, so help around the house may be useful as well.
We have 10 acres, a horse, 6 goats, chickens, and two dogs. We like to think that we are very relaxed, but there is too much to do!!! It would be brilliant if you knew how to do woodwork, but not essential.
You would be given a room to yourselves, the house has 7 bedrooms, there is a lot of space.
We live in the countryside 1.5 miles from the local town. 45 minutes from Salisbury and Bath.

I am looking for helpers to help me get my house in order. I am finding that I cant keep up with everything that needs doing. I would appreciate help with things like general maintenance, helping build a shed, lifting plasterboard and fixing, gardening, cleaning and things like this.
Anyone who can fix cycles would also be welcome as I have 2 that need attention. One that needs a new chain and the other problems with brakes.
In return I can offer accommodation and meals and help you to improve your English. I also have bicycles to explore the surrounding areas such as The New Forest and Studland/ Purbeck.
