Attractive rustic old Norfolk Barns that I have been developing, on a shoe string, since 1991. In 1997 I built an eco-cabin and extended it in 2004 with a 50square metre straw-bale,on rubber tyres buildingy. We have a reed-bed purification system, and have started harvesting water. There is a large vegetable garden which I have developed along Permaculture principles with composting on site cf. Thanks to a former volunteer we now have a wonderful polytunnel. I am a member of the Permaculture association which has always been a source of inspiration.Sadly I am without large animals For many years I ran animal assisted activities, but recently have
given the ponies and pigs to a wonderful project working with city school children in a residential setting, giving them an experience of the outdoors. cf Ringsfield Hall Eco-centre near Beccles.

We are a family-run estate on the west coast of Scotland, around 2 and a half hours from Glasgow. We have many animals (cows, sheep, various poultry, dogs, cats and horses) and so volunteers must like animals. Volunteers will work alongside family members or estate staff on our various activities. During the summer months we also run a famous restaurant. In addition we have holiday cottages which have to be cleaned in between occupants. There are grounds, gardens, houses/buildings that need renovation and maintenance. We are situated in a beautiful area on the coast and there are a range of things to do in volunteers spare time.

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help out with gardening work on an estate where we try to live in a sustainable way. The work is varied and involves teamwork. It also offers an opportunity to learn about permaculture and growing fruit, flowers and vegetables in a kitchen garden, a herb garden and an orchard. We also need help in keeping livestock (chickens, sheep and goats), and with maintaining a fly fishing river. Other jobs include logging, mowing and all other areas of gardening, plus buildings maintenance and decorating at times if that suits you.

If you want to learn or improve your English this will be a good opportunity as you will be working with an English-speaking team.

We provide all your food (including our own organic produce) and accommodation sharing a house with other volunteers, but you will need to cook for yourselves. We live on the edge of a busy little market town, so we have the best of town and country to enjoy and you can borrow a car or... more inside

**We are looking for 2 helpers in September**

We run a small outdoor cafe, open from Easter to the end of September each year. We are situated on the beautiful island of Kerrera, 5 mins off the coast of Oban in the west of Scotland. The island attracts lots of walkers and we are positioned in a great location 45 mins walk from the ferry on the south of the island close to Gylen Castle. It's the perfect place to stop for some good homemade soups, cakes and a nice cup of tea!

We also have a seven bed Bunkhouse open all year round.

Tasks would include working in the kitchen (lots of dishwashing!) and serving customers. We're open 10.30am-4.30pm, so we ask helpers to be ready to start at 10am. There will occasionally be other work such as cleaning, laundry and and gardening. Working hours will be dependent on how busy we are and we ask you to be flexible. Typically, it will be about 6hrs a day. However, we do aim to give you time to relax and explore this beautiful island!
