From August 25/26th: Looking for gardeners and/or people willing to rub down and paint internal and external woodwork- training given if needed - patience in rubbing down with sandpaper, and care not to get paint everywhere, most important!

We are a Vegetarian Housing Co-op, set up 11 years ago in an old pub. 8 of us live here, with a large steeply sloped garden where we grow lots of soft fruit, some apples and increasingly, more vegetables. We have top bar bee hives and lots of bracken and brambles,too! There are 3 terraces where people can camp as well.
Although there are 8 of us, everyone is usually busy doing different things, and HelpXers work quite a lot on their own - so it really won't work for people looking to practise their English - much better for people who like quite a bit of time and space to themselves,
Members are involved with Tree Responsibility; cook soup for a local food kitchen; do green woodworking amongst other things. Although vegetarian for shared ... more inside

We are Paul & Alison and we are looking for a HelpXer now. We live in Oakham, Rutland in the centre of England. The county of Rutland is bordered by Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, and Northamptonshire.

We are renovating a small racing yacht. It is a Soling which was the three person keelboat in the Olympics from 1972 to 2000. A Soling is nearly 27 feet long, made of GRP, has a mast 31 feet tall off the deck and weighs over a ton. The steps of the renovation process are: taking off and labelling all the fittings; stripping and sanding down the hull and all surfaces; some minor repairs; smoothing the hull and keel; a final cleaning of the boat, painting it, and cleaning and putting the fittings back on.

The job will take maybe three weeks or a bit more. We also have some decorating to do if the weather is not great and a small green house to assemble so there plenty to do but none of it is heavy work.

Coming to us might appeal to you if you sail or would like to learn how to ... more inside

The setting is the heart of the welsh countryside. I have a small home and garden in a typical Welsh micro-village. The garden is given over to vegetable/fruit production using permaculture/ organic techniques.
Having gained considerable horticultural experience I am seeking to expand into new lands over the next year, or so, and so would appreciate help with the following, especially if people wish to stay for a month, or so.

I offer, Full Board in exchange for four hours work a day giving help sorting house and garden:-

1) Organising (small) polytunnel and garden, which is well cultivated, but needs preparing for the new season.

2) I have two households-worth of furniture in the house and am unable to move it without help, sorting this would take about ten days.

3) Furniture also needs moving around so that flooring can be put down and curtains put on rails; this would be work for another ten days, or so.

Would prefer two to share double room. I would welcome ... more inside

This is a six-house carbon neutral co-housing project within a Community. The site is a compact one acre but includes; a 64m2 polycarbonate polytunnel, plenty of outdoor growing areas, a communal yurt space for accommodation, workshops and gatherings, wood fired pizza oven, a flock of ducks and a wood fired hot tub. Our ongoing and future projects include; the building of a communal outdoor kitchen, a compost toilet, experimenting with hydroponics, aquaculture and integrated growing systems, and establishing the site trees, berries, fungi and herbs as well as vegetables.

Volunteers will be hosted initially in the yurt, and one of our key projects this summer will be the creation of Volunteer accommodation next to the site polytunnel. We are also looking for volunteers who could contribute their skills to the building of our outdoor kitchen over the coming months.

Meals will be a mixture of self-catering in the yurt kitchen and communal meals. All food provided.

We are a 5 m... more inside

Please do not email- we do not require any helpers at the moment or in the near future

Hi!
Im Louise, also registered helper on the site and I live with my Father.
My father would also like help with the garden in the summer.
You would have alot of free time to explore and there is regular buses to wycombe where there are regular trains to London.
The room where you would be in is at the moment the room where we are keeping all the stuff while we are clearing the house out but there is a bed and desk and storage if you dont mind abit of mess and the sooner we can get the help the sooner the room can be made fit for more helpers!
Also I am rarely home and we would want helpers who are very independent,we prefer people who are happy to explore places by themselves. The best kind of helper for us is one who would happily clean, tidy, work for a few hours and then have to independence to go out to Oxford, London, Reading, High Wycombe and not just sit in their room all day.

We are a small homestead only a couple of years into this project, consisting of vegetable gardens, some larger-scale vegetable cultivation, and small orchards, with some small livestock (poultry, pigs). We also run a microbrewery on-site. We're in a remote part of west Wales in the rugged Preseli mountains, near the sea. Things we could use help with: farm-type work (cultivation, ground clearance, vegetable growing, animal husbandry, brush clearing, haymaking, chopping wood, fencing, etc), house work/renovation (it's an old stone house and needs all kinds of work including electrical, plumbing, plastering, rendering, painting inside and exterior, and so on!). We're also interested in building small outbuildings, such as compost toilet, sheds, roundhouse, greenhouse. Lots of seasonal jobs, lots of things that can be done at any time of year. We have two small children and could possibly be open to hosting someone to stay with a (not terribly small) child - please get in touch to dis... more inside

I would like to have a general handy person to help me with gardening and painting some rooms inside my small 17th century cottage.

You will have your own large bedroom with king-size bed over looking the countryside. There is a pony opposite who enjoys the odd carrot and apples off the tree in the garden.

I'm pretty easy going, work as a coach and career specialist so if I can help you whilst you are here we can spend time together. I also have a small complementary practice in the village offering Journey work, visualisation, and mindfulness meditation.

I value good health and would prefer somebody who also values and cares for themselves in a healthy way.

Non smoker and references are essential.

The smallholding is largely pasture with a recently planted hectare of deciduous broadleaf trees which need maintenance and replanting to take account of losses.

I have plans to redesign the farmyard as a garden which blends in to the agricultural landscape. I am open to ideas on witty schemes to make the garden more interesting. Ultimately I would like to open the garden under the National Open Gardens scheme in the UK. I need walls building, pathways laid out etc. a pond digging and a cascade planned and landscaped.
