We bought a derelict smallholding not so long ago and moved in with all of our animals. We have a challenge doing it up at the same time as working and looking after the animals. We would love to welcome anyone who would help us tick a few jobs off the long list of things to do and get this place looking and working well again.
There are a variety of activities from animal care to restoring an organic vegetable patch, through to some outbuilding maintenance. The jobs will be as varied as the animals we keep.
We have alpacas, chickens, sheep, ducks, rabbits, cats, dogs and peafowl.
We have 7 cria due in 2019, so there will also be plenty of opportunities to help out with alpaca births and mating.

The accommodation is somewhat rustic, but that is only because we haven`t yet finished restoring the bungalow. You will be given an upstairs room and will share our downstairs shower room. We currently sleep in the living room. Upstairs is very much unfinished; it is nearly completely... more inside

Beautiful views and a lovely rural setting close to an alternative town with plenty going on (Hebden Bridge) nestled between Manchester and Leeds in the South Pennines. We are also on a bus route and near a train station.

We would love people to help us with our smallholding. We are a couple with a dog, cows and chickens. You would be staying with us as part of the family.

We have meadows with a stream running through. Our plan is to develop the meadows for wild flowers, generate woodland along the stream and create a pond area to increase biodiversity. We also have a small veg plot and orchard.

We are not registered organic but have an organic sensibility. We do things by hand and don`t use chemical fertiliser etc.

We need help with whatever we are doing. If the weather is fine we'll be outside, removing problem plants, generally weeding, planting, painting, building dry stone walls, making paths, moving stones or working on out-buildings. If the weather is poor we ... more inside

**WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR A JOINER/CARPENTER, PLUMBER, ELECTRICIAN OR A COMBINATION OF THE ABOVE!

I am restoring and renovating a large Victorian house in Central London and am looking for help immediately. It is a family home (I am a single mum with an 11 year old son).

We live in Limehouse in East London, 2 minutes away from the station. Limehouse DLR is 2 stops (every 2 min) away from Bank (Central Line), Tower Hill (Circle and District Line) and Canary Wharf (Jubilee Line). It takes 20min to get to Oxford Circus on the tube. And obviously we are close to all the arty, young energy of East London.

On your own time, you can explore all the amazing things in London etc, but unfortunately, as I'm a busy working mom, I won't be providing any tour guidance. We like happy, fun people, and the odd glass of wine, but no partying in the house as this is a family home. No smokers please.

We are looking for energetic, hard working, organised and upbeat people to he... more inside

We, my daughter and I, are building a timber frame house in 'Wikihouse.cc' system from scratch on a 1 acre paddock/orchard in Kingsbridge, South Devon Coast, South West England from Mach 2020.

Wikihouse is an open source building system where ALL components are made of standard plywood sheets which are cut by laser machines to minimise wastage. Delivered as flatpack and assembled on site minimised carbon footprint as well as the reduced foundation due to less weight of the structure. Just check the website. We will build as ecological with sustainable ,materials AS POSSIBLE. Sustainable insulation, cork floors, solar panels etc.

Within the house, I am building a traditional ground oven. If you have ANY experience of this I really would love to hear from you!

UPDATE: we currently have family staying in the spare room so are unable to offer any space to helpX guests until they move out which will most likely be some time in the new year, sorry to all that had expressed an interest.

Our last helpX guests were wonderful primary school teachers with a lot of childcare experience so they looked after our children while we were working upstairs clearing out the loft. We will probably be looking for help over the the summer holidays, we may be able to offer a stay from 24/07 to 07/08 and 19/08 to 31/09 in exchange for spring cleaning and childcare. We will be offering 3 days work for a weeks stay or you can do one solid weeks work then have a second week off to explore London and the surrounding countryside.

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 or 30 mins to London Bridge so great for people wanting to see the city. We are also half an hour ... more inside
