Help please giving TLC to a 1 acre organic (non-certified) garden and additional 1 acre of land (which have been unloved by the previous owners for several years) in preparation for running yoga and spriritual retreats in the spring/summer 2014. The land is next to a site of special scientific interest. Project will include gardening, hedge laying, preparing a herb garden and fern garden and various water features and erecting/establishing a poly tunnel for organic home grown veg. Also if the volunteer(s) has/have the skills and experience, help is required converting an outbuilding to a bedroom with en suite bathroom for retreats and building some yurts. Help and guidance can be provided by a gardener with years of experience, if required, who is already helping with the project.

Currently looking for helpers from the end of September with food and board included.

We are a smallholding on the North Devon coast looking for volunteers for a diverse (and very exciting!) array of projects.

Last winter we set-up a luxury campsite with yurts and bell tents and we are just coming to the end of our opening season. Now that we have the business up and running we are looking for help with getting the next few projects up and running. This is mainly a case of getting the farm into working order and creating a truly self-sufficient smallholding.

Over the next 5 months projects include,
building and landscaping a market garden with greenhouse and polytunnel
Fencing works around the farm to make it all livestock proof
Looking after the pigs and other animals
A number of woodwork projects including field shelters and stores
Tree planting in a number of areas
Woodland management and some coppicing.
I hope some of those sound of interest.

We have a... more inside

This is a 17.5 h working broadleaf woodland, managed for the long term benefit of all its non-human inhabitants. We produce firewood, sawn timber, charcoal, coppiced hazel, yurt poles and simple carpentry made out of sawn timber.

It has a spacious furnished cabin heated by a Rayburn and a Jotul. There is a kitchen, filtered rainwater, an outside heated bath and a composting toilet. Food would be supplied to be cooked on the Rayburn and and two gas rings. Food will be supplied for cooking on site.

We need people to help us move timber, wood and brash, to plant saplings and to help in the sawmill. You will begin to learn the arts of coppicing and eco-forestry by actually doing it.

On this working organic farm, established in 1997, you will find chickens, ducks, geese, Ruby Red Cattle, dogs, cats and bees. There is a productive vegetable garden, orchard, woodland, hedgerows and a wild flower meadow bordering onto Culm grassland.

All the produce from this farm is sold direct at Farmer's Markets and the preparation is done on the farm too. Plenty to do!

There are always projects on the go from helping with animals, in the garden and fields or various building and maintenance tasks.

Accommodation will be in a twin bedroom in the farmhouse, and you will be treated as one of the family. The North Cornish coast is 10 miles away and Dartmoor 20 miles,all on a bus route.

We prefer one or two helpers who can stay a minimum of two weeks or longer and are happy to muck in and muck out wherever needed.

My home, Ty Cae Rydar, is a farmhouse set in rolling farmlands of the Usk valley in South East Wales. It was built as a barn in the 1800ís and was converted to a farmhouse in the 1880ís. It is surrounded by 2 acres of land, filled with trees and shrubs. Iíve had it for 20 years and I need some help with maintenance and upkeep since Iím now working away from home.

Important : There is no close public transport, so a helper would need either to have his/her own transport, or to be happy to be about an hourís walk from the nearest shop for 5 days at a time. Iím usually there at the weekends, but I work away during the week, so a helper would be on their own Monday to Friday. The house is not isolated, as there are 5-6 neighbours within a half-mile.

Also, at the moment, there's no internet connection, only a landline !!

The nearest village is Raglan (as in Lord Raglan and the Charge of the Light Brigade) and the nearest town is Monmouth (as in Monmouth Harry), a charming marke... more inside

Hi I'm new to this, so here goes. Just viewing some of the host reviews HelpX looks like a brilliant idea and 'win win' situation for all concerned including a rewarding cultural experience. I have actually hosted foreign students in the past with no expectation of work! I am a people person and see value and amazing potential in every unique human being placed on God's earth. I can cook most things and accommodate most tastes, but am willing to let you loose in the kitchen if that is your thing.
I am taking short/long term bookings for volunteers on a building project in North Wales leading up to November/December 2013 and beyond. I can accommodate sooner than later with good references~to help on an exciting new project including wood work, mosaics, painting, glazing, restoring Georgian windows, stone work/ brickwork and general cleaning brushing up. I am doing up an old stone built end terrace property(Circa 1830's)with original old fires and well around the back, currently one... more inside

We live in a very pretty, very rural part of Dorset.

We have a big and rather wild garden. we have recently been hit by the storm and now have loads of fallen trees. Whilst some will need moving professionally, it would be great for to have someone to start clearing. This may require using a hand saw or chainsaw. We also have plenty of strimming and clearing.

We have a couple of ponies and a couple of sheep, chickens and a dog. all low maintenance but obviously they all need care which i will mostly do

We have 4 children, aged between 8 and 4. if we were to have a couple, then i would like help with the general up keep of tidying up the house after them. I dont require child care but would require someone to be flexible and open minded.

length of stay, tbc

We would need a person or people to be quite switched on. See where help is needed. There is a poss car available and a pub within walking distance!

I live in a vintage Showmans Wagon in an ancient cider apple orchard surrounded by horse and vehicle drawn wagons in varying states of build and restoration.I have a large workshop and various outbuildings along with a shower block and privy.Although living here is basic it's comfortable and vibrant.
I would love help with the restoration and building of the various current projects which could include anything from Gypsy wagons to cabins.
I would also like to start a vegetable garden.
I share my home with Archie,a donkey,who will happily pull a cart to the village shop.
I am happy to share my skills with people who are keen to learn and help.No previous skills are necessarily required just a positive outlook.
If any of the above interests you please get in touch.
