Currently have space for volunteers as follows:
*????? 1-2 volunteers but most of the work will be helping clean the house and look after the cats and chickens and gardens - please note this can be a cold climate we do not yet have central heating and facilities are really basic compared to modern living !

We are at the early stages of restoring an old, large and characterful building, parts of which date to the 14th Century, with a walled garden, orchard and vegetable patch. We`ll be creating a small yoga studio, accommodation rooms and community spaces. In the medium to long term we hope the site will host retreats and small scale events.

We are a couple from Cornwall who are helping to run the family's small holding. We are fun loving, hard working individuals who are enjoying implementing Permaculture designed buildings, allotment, polytunnel, animal areas, forest garden and ponds. We have a large variety of projects on the go from building sheds to 12v solar/wind systems and rocket mass heaters to apple tree guilds. We are interested in planting edible/medicinal plants and already have some on the go ready to harvest for tintures! Our work varies between building, gardening, animals and holiday lets. Exciting :)
Nick normally works full-time at home finishing and experimenting with new ideas whilst Rosie works full-time as a primary school teacher.
Nicks family also live at home, so there's always lots going on and we often eat communally :)

Accommodation is in a cosy caravan with a beautiful view, surrounded by trees.
Our key aim is to put projects in place and then educate about the many benefits of l... more inside

We live in a lovely old house on a 16 acre organic smallholding set in beautiful woodland and countryside in Dartmoor National Park. We have 5 dogs (all lurchers), 5 cats, 2 ponies and 5 sheep. We are Judy and Nick, friendly old lefty hippies, interested in people, nature and the world in general. We have 21 year old twins who are mostly away at university.

We are looking for help from a strong, cheerful woman who would enjoy general farm, land, and garden work. In return we will offer a cosy room, lots of very good food, good company and the chance to learn about healing, dog psychology and training - if that would interest you.

A small spending allowance may be paid if you have special skills or experience.

We would be happy with someone coming here for a month or two - though sometimes we take people for a couple of weeks.

We like strong, friendly people who enjoy working outside and on the farm and in the garden.

Our property has hay and wildflower meadows, str... more inside

Cwrt y Cylchau is a stone farm house and outbuildings situated with five acres of sheltered and peaceful land in a valley in the hills. Surrounded by mature trees and bordering a mountain stream, we have a forest garden, vegetable beds, polytunnel, ponds, coppices, meadows and woodland. Sheep graze part of the land whilst some meadow is left to encourage wildflowers. Wildlife is a priority and permaculture informs the management of land and lifestyle here. Currently there are three residents.Some residents have jobs away from home. The owner is home-based and usually available to work alongside volunteers.
Guests and volunteers are accommodated in the farmhouse or may camp in summer months. People sometimes come here for retreat, enjoy the tranquility, breathe exceptionally clear air and find silence interrupted only by birdsong and the sounds of wind and river.
Volunteers are asked to help with the daily and seasonal activities. These might be gardening jobs connected with growi... more inside

Our farm in a relatively new project started in May 2017. We grow vegetables, herbs and edible flowers for Chefs and restaurants in London. Our produce is grown and harvested with attention to detail so that we can provide pour customers with the freshest, highest quality produce possible.
Another unique thing about our farm business is that it is based around the use of our heavy horses, Bill and Ben. We use old farming equipment to work our fields. We are excited to welcome volunteers who are interested in the working horses, but we have made the decision not to get volunteers involved in driving the horses.

We have developed a weekly routine that works for our farm and our business. Volunteers are expected to join in with the daily responsibilities of caring for the animals, watering baby plants etc. We pick and deliver to chefs 2 days a week. We start a bit earlier on these mornings to make sure our customers have their product by lunchtime. When we are not harvesting for ... more inside

Hello!

I am looking for someone to come to stay with us to give me help with painting my stairs and corridors. Also some help with family life.

At the moment I homeschool my three kids so I may need help taking the oldest (12) out. And my smallest, aged four, needs to go to the park when she is not in nursery.


Your room in the attic is newly done and you will have a top of the range Bo Concept sofa-bed. However some of the house is still quite chaotic - just to warn you! And the four year old is very screamy sometimes.

I am a writer and my husband is an actor. We are an easy-going family, not especially organised, every day is different. If that sounds as if it would suit you - come stay! I'm looking for around five hours help a day with weekends off - though sometimes I would love you to babysit in the evening, part of your hours, of course.

We live in South East London zone 2. Nearest overground train is New Cross Gate. The network Southeast train station is N... more inside

The Erraid Community is a small island off the Isle of Mull (Inner Hebrides) and part of the Findhorn Foundation Community. As a spiritual land-based community we live and work together as custodians of the island and cottages that were built for the northern lighthouse board in the 1860s. Our life is very practical whilst living with spiritual principles. Our main role here as custodians of the island is to maintain the cottages and outbuildings. This involves: painting, carpentry, plumbing, electrical, maintaining the many sash windows, metal work, fencing and much more. Our second priority is keeping our aim of trying to live off the land as much as we can, we have organic gardens, two poly-tunnels and many chickens. Alongside that we are running a guest programme called Love in Action, and we offer retreats. Please read more on www.erraid.com.

From the 27th of October onwards we are looking for help with:
