Hello,
My name is Ania and I live in Oxford. I’ll be going away by the end of May(27th of May till 8th of June 2018). I would like to find someone for this duration to look after my dog Gustav. He is a very well behaved dog and loves people. You’d be responsible to look after him, taking him for an hour walk around 1pm and another one around 5pm. Oxford has a lot to offer, there are a few museums, great pubs and a good music scene. You can take Gustav to the pub too, many of them allow dogs. You would be staying in my room. There are two lodgers in the house who are very friendly but they both working full time so I can’t ask them to look after my dog. It would be a great opportunity for someone who wants to explore Oxford because you’ll have a lot of time in between. The accommodation would be of course free but you’d have to pay for your own food hence there is no actual work that needs to be done, you just need to like dogs!
If you have any questions please don’t hasitate to ... more inside

We are an organic flower and vegetable market garden growing for the local market.We have a very holistic approach to growing ensuring that the whole environment is kept in harmony and that biodiversity is promoted at every opportunity. We concentrate on flower growing through the summer months and then move into vegetables as the season progresses. We are looking for one or two people to help us from the end of May to mid September. Ideally you will be happy to stay for at least a month, or maybe the whole summer. The work is manual and will include picking and preparing produce for market, seeding, planting out, hoeing etc. We look forward to your enquiry.
Please look at our website for more information about what we do. Horticulture/Gardening experience would be helpful, and a love of working outdoors and being part of a small team essential.

We are a 26 acre traditional smallholding in mid-devon. We are renovating the land, which has been largely unused for a century. We keep rare breed sheep, goats, and chickens, and hope to include pigs shortly.

We have a large ongoing task in repairing / cutting back the hedge rows, with a view to repariing the banks, re-planting the gaps, and being able to lay the hedges in future years. We've also begun planting a new wood copse in one field, and plan to plant a traditional orchard in another.

One thing we have struggled with is getting our veg gardening up to scratch. We have experience and enthusiasm, but not enough hours in the day!

Whilst not being registered organic, we self-impose most of that system. We do treat the animals with medicines, but on an evidence-based basis.

Our over-arching approach is one of sustainability.

We would ideally like to find a person or a couple who was prepared to stay for several months of the spring/summer/autumn, and help with cr... more inside

*April/May placement*

Hi we’re Adam and Laura, we have a little boy called Harry and an English Pointer called Ottie. We currently live with Adams parents on a lovely smallholding, named Wickwood in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. Wickwood consists of 10 acres of mainly fields and woodland, a farmhouse, cottage style gardens, vegetable patch, and is home to around 20+ sheep and numerous chickens.

We’re just in the process of refurbishing a large barn conversion, which will be our future home and also includes an attached holiday cottage.
We’re looking for one of two helpers, with building or decorating experience to help us complete the house, which should take another 4 weeks.

There are also gardens, woodland and an orchard which we hope to bring back to life and may even turn into a Glamping site.
Accommodation and food will be provided in return.

We are very sociable people and enjoy other peoples company.

We’re keen to find helpers who have skills and... more inside

September requirement

1 or 2 people or couple required for splitting & stacking & wheelbarrowing firewood (up 2 or 3 steps with plank over it) from front garden to back garden (about 35 metres). Work is outside. So you need to be comfortable with being outside, enjoy physical work, and have a normal degree of everyday fitness. Being tall or male or young does not necessarily mean you will find wood processing easy. You need to be able to work consistently and pace yourself. Our best wood processing helper was a mid-western American woman in her late 20's who had grown up doing it.

Sarah & Guy are a friendly couple in late forties with twin 7 year olds, living in comfortable, spacious house in Headington a suburb of Oxford City. We can offer internet, own largish twin room (sharing if there are two of you), good home prepared food (smoothies for breakfast), we will do your clothes washing and return it dried to you. There may be other (possibly international) guests staying... more inside
