We require help with laundry, cleaning, tidying in the kitchen, gardening, and some other tasks such as general maintenance, painting.

We are also always looking for carpenters or diy skills.

We are not an intentional community although there are 11 people living here.
Please no pets, no children.
Smoke outside the room.
There is only one pub with a small shop in the village otherwise it is very quiet.

This mixed hill farm is home to 16 cows, a bull, two goats, a large flock of sheep ,bees, poultry, ducks, five cats and two dogs with their two owners and quite a lot of wildlife. The farm is certified organic/biodynamic. We use Biodynamic methods, have no machinery and work hard to try to grow vegetables, shiitake and fruit at 650` on a south facing hill in a glorious area of South West Scotland. We welcome non-smoking meat eating or vegetarian help. We are far from shops and transport, quiet - a great place to watch the stars!

There is always a lot to do and we need help now! If you would like to help us with our Biodynamic Preparations you would learn aabout what and why we do! We hope to plant some more fruit trees and generally tidy up after a very wet winter. We have some recycled timber which we would love to turn into duck and/or hen houses and there is always fencing to renovate or dykes to repair!


We welcome people who like to get `stuck in`. Right n... more inside

The eccentric couple owning the award winning garden have build this place up from a ruin within the last 45 years. It is now a mature wildlife and garden retreat for them and those of us who are lucky enough to help them.
Chris is not only an exquisite plant expert, but has also build several follies, sculptures and hide aways on the land creating an extraudinary place to be. Both of the owners, though in their late 70th, are outgoing, vibrant, and busy.

I have lived here as volunteer now since summer last year with my own little hut behind the bees in the orchard, but there are rooms in the house; its ideal for people with their own live in vehicles or we have some tucked away spaces if you prefer to be more away from the communal living. I am mainly responsible for the polly - tunnel and fruit cage and orchard, but there is plenty to do in all areas.

The work will be aspects of garden and woodland maintenance, but also taking part in building projects, tree houses, zip... more inside

We have self catering tourism businesses in Aberfeldy and Pitlochry, Perthshire in the Scottish Highlands. We previously had a guesthouse and have hosted happy volunteers for a number of years!
We have just refurbished a beautiful old manse house next to Loch Tummel and are currently letting that out as well as our self catering lodges.
We need people to help with weekly changeovers between guests. This involves cleaning, tidying and preparing the properties for the new arrivals.
We are also looking for volunteers with a love of gardening and outdoor work for help with landscaping a large pond and garden we are currently re-establishing in our two acre garden in Foss.

We are Tina and Norman, we are very adaptable, friendly and have run all aspects of our own small businesses for a long time now.

Set in the beautiful countryside just on the Welsh border. Close to areas of special scientific interest, meres, mosses and canals.
We farm in a mostly organic way, sheep, poultry, rescued horses.also rescued dogs. We would like help from people with abilities in construction, fencing or logging or those who wish to care for the animals.
Our gardens and hedgerows are left for the benefit of the many rare birds and insects.
Due to failing health we need help to continue our work. This is rural but not remote.There is limited bus service within one mile and trains three miles away.( The nearest town) We do provide bicycles and help to travel where possible.
The work is outdoors and mainly physical, so willingness to muck in and muck out in all weathers is essential. Together with an empathy for what we do. We welcome help from anywhere but please only people who have read and understand the basic profile. This is a very busy place and we don't have time to spend days messaging ba... more inside

I own a large self contained unit within a co-housing community on the outskirts of Bradford on Avon. We own about 2.5 hectares of beautiful land, with orchard, swimming pool, tennis court and other amenities. Some of us have our own organic vegetable plots.

I would like one or two volunteers (non-smokers please) to help with a variety of jobs, mostly gardening work on my vegetable plot or other outside tasks, or sometimes helping with practical jobs indoors such as decorating or cleaning.

In exchange for accommodation and meals, I would like approx 4-5 hours' work per day, which can be organised flexibly according to our respective needs.

You will have your own comfortable bedroom (or shared with another Helpx volunteer, if agreed). There is plenty of good quality fresh food to which you can help yourself for breakfast and lunch, and a cooked meal in the evening. I am mostly vegetarian and can cater for other diets by arrangement.

I can offer some help with English i... more inside

ANYONE LOOKING FOR A CHALLENGE?

WE WANT TO RENOVATE A POTTING SHED INTO A BOTHY. HELP WOULD BE AMAZING....do you have any carpentry or building skills?....and once we get the Building Warrant ( I hope in late winter/early Spring) we will be starting to build a fairly eco house made from our own home-grown and home-processed timber....and insulated with hempcrete.

We live in the lowland hills of S Scotland, in a stunningly beautiful, wooded valley with the River Whiteadder flowing along it.

Work will be very varied depending on the time of year, the weather, and your skills.
It could include varied gardening jobs, picking black currants, raspberries and strawberries for eating/drying/freezing/making wine and cordial for the winter, helping in the sawmill, weeding baby trees or pruning, painting walls if it is raining or window frames if it is sunny, chain sawing in the forest (if you have experience), helping build the house (once we get permission to start), strimming,... more inside

Welcome to wales. Stay on a farm and help to look after Sled dogs and Sheep dogs. You can also learn about dog training, handling and grooming in your spare time.

This is a peaceful and secluded farm in the Welsh countryside ( with WiFi ), a quiet place to get away from it all, maybe do some meditation and get in touch with nature.
Dog Training, Dog Handler training, Rehabilitating aggressive dogs, and Sheepdog training are some of the thing that happen here.

The work is not complicated, cleaning out the kennels, refreshing water bowls, carrying buckets, walking the dogs 2 times a day ( Once in the morning, and again in the afternoon ), and then letting the dogs out again last thing each night just before bedtime, and a little help around the farm and in the house if needed, sawing or carrying logs to the house for the fire, washing up etc.

4 hours of work a day maximum - 2 hours in the morning, and 1 1/2 hours in the afternoon and 1/2 hour last thing to put the dogs to ... more inside

We currently have HelpX guests staying and have others arranged for January, so we aren't looking for any other immediate guests at this stage but do feel free to contact us with your requirements for next year when we will hopefully be looking for guests to help with ground work and construction work so really after skilled labour for that stay, still offering 2.5 days work for a weeks stay.

We are 7 minutes walk to the train station that runs services into London every 10 mins. The train takes 40 mins to central London so great for people wanting to see the city. We are also half an hour away from Gatwick Airport.

We are looking for help with decorating the house, website development and architect skills for my husbands new business. If you are coming with a friend/partner, the following skills would also be great; spring cleaning, decluttering and entertaining small children.
