Trying to rebuild our off-grid home which was destroyed by fire 18 months ago. Electricity and internet access is available but intermittent/limited due to natural resources. Situated in a remote location with lots of interesting birds and local history relating to early people and Roman history. We are working towards making our small garden, a permaculture, so need help with landscaping and planting. We are rebuilding the house using lime mortar and sheep's wool insulation with a hemp plaster. We are also trying to make a rocket boiler so that we can have showers. Water is from a well. It is completely untreated but renowned for its healing properties. Accommodation is available in an old campervan and we have a compost toilet in the garden. You can also camp.Public transport is irregualar and a forty minute walk over a steep hill so own transport is really useful. The pub is at least an hour's walk.

We are a friendly small (3) family located 8 miles from the historic city of Cambridge. I have 4 horses, 2 dogs and a well behaved 8 yr old child amongst other things. I am seeking a cheerful versatile man who can help me out with outdoor work in my 2.8 hectare field, which includes fencing and maintenance of wooden stabling, handling horses and animals and (possibly) walking half a mile a day to take my child to the bus stop before school. I am offering a nice house to stay in, hot shower and meals in return for a cheerful willing person who is happy to help out with various outdoor tasks in and around our property.
IF you can ride well this is a big bonus to me, as I have two horses to exercise NOW for the forthcoming polo season, so would be grateful if you were able to ride with me on a 5 day daily basis. I love my animals very much so kindness and patience and a relaxed attitude is very important to maintain happiness!

We are looking for helpers for 4-10 days at a time. We have a landscape gardening project to try and achieve this summer, strong backs welcome.

We are in our 50ís and live in central Watford, a 1 mile journey from the M25. We need help in the house and garden as I have a chronic illness. A single helper needs to be happy with their own company because I can sometimes be too ill to be chatty. Although I did a TEFL course years ago, if you are looking just to learn the language we would not be a good placement in case I am off colour.

We are a 5 minute walk to Watford Junction station (to Euston), 10 minutes from the Metropolitan line (to London stations such as Wembley and Kings Cross), via a pleasant walk through Cassiobury Park. Watford itself has lots of shops, the Colosseum, olympic swimming pool & College (2 mins) a theatre(5 mins), Harlequin shopping centre (5-10 mins), football stadium (Vicarage Road, 10 mins). The Grove golf course is a mile away and the Warner Brothers... more inside

Firstly I must apologise that I am now no longer able to host people in sheffield to learn community allotmenting.

I have moved to a community down in south wales, see my facebook link above.

Here we have many gardens, - kitchen garden, forest garden, market garden, flowers , herbs, bee keeping, etc. We are looking for people to help us over the summer months and into the autumn. If you would like to help out here please do get in touch with my friend Lenka or me via phone. It would be great to have your involvement.

I have over 10 years experience in growing food in urban areas, and teach courses and train people in organic horticultural processes, like composting, seed saving, propagation, cultivation techniques, wild food foraging, harvesting techniques, cooking, and herbal medicine. Contact me if you are interested in getting involved in any of these activities.
