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

We have several old Apple trees and a newly planted Orchard, our garden has grown in size year on year with a wide variety of fruit and vegetables, including quite a few Squash and a lot of Blueberries, we also have a few Tomatoes and Peppers/Chilli in our Greenhouse, we again don`t have any Animals during 2019.
With help we aim to continue to increase the size of our garden each year, on top of the normal planting and looking after the crops there are new raised beds to create, hedges to be tended, grass and brambles to cut back. There are always jobs like moving stone, digging and cutting wood. Over the next couple of years I'd like to construct a fruit cage, chicken tractor, composting toilet, fencing, dry stone walling plus a whole lot more. I`m also open to new ideas.

Maralyn has multiple sclerosis and sadly is now in a wheelchair unable to eat or move by herself. Sam is her carer who lives with us as part of the family and she is supported by other carers who visit twice a day. Our son Adam lives in Cambridge and runs the family Patent Attorney business. He usually comes to our house twice a week to work in a small office in our garden.

We would be grateful for help with cooking, decorating, roofing, gardening, housework, horse care, DIY, hedge cutting, brick laying, wood chopping etc..

We have a green house and a vegetable patch and one retired horse. 6 acres of our land are used for our horses and we have 4 acres of land which we would like to develop for an interesting use eg food forest, woodland, etc.. Any suggestions are welcome.

This is an intentional community of about 40 people (adults and children) living in separate self-contained units within a Georgian manor house, stable block and cottages on 40 acres of land. We work the farm co-operatively with the aim of producing a substantial part of our food including meat, milk, eggs, fruit and vegetables.

Land includes 20 acres of pasture, 8 acres arable, 2 acre walled vegetable garden, a large Victorian greenhouse and polytunnels, an orchard, a small area of woodland and a lake and garden. We have dairy cows, goats and sheep as well as hens, bees and, sometimes, pigs. You may be working on just about any job on the farm: with the animals, gardening or on the grounds and buildings.

We generally host up to 3 volunteers for a fortnight at a time for general helping out about the farm and estate.

Accommodation is in shared rooms (sometimes private) with adjacent toilet and shower room. There is a large communal kitchen nearby for preparing meals and... more inside

UPDATES-IMPORTANT:

We cannot take more than 3 helpers, but here you can check when the next ones are leaving so you can apply for those positions:
- 2 from the last week of August

* Ideally minimum stay 4 weeks.
* We don't plan too far ahead as all depends on how long the current helpers are staying or extending but you can try

+++ At the moment the help required is very easy: Basically 3-4h cleaning in the morning since we have 2 managers doing morning/evening shifts for the welcomings apart from 3pm till 6.30pm that both managers are busy and 1 helper should be around, or when managers have days off.

I have a small house in Zone 2, London. The room doubles as my office when there are no guests so I will need to pop in and out to get things. It has bunk beds, a closet and desk. Most of the work is basic gardening/landscaping. There's a small garden out front and a 65' garden in the rear. I'd also like the deck rebuilt at some point if that's something anyone out there can do. I'm not much of a cook, but will provide food that you can cook yourself. During term time my children are only home on the weekends, so the place is pretty quiet.
