An organic project in a stunning location, in Snowdonia.

In summer, we need help maintaining the woodland we planted in 1996, clearing bracken and bramble, doing sustainable construction projects and generally caring for veg plots and the land.
We will work together for 4-5 hours a day, depends what we are up to really, if it's a fun project we may work longer. Most days have a mix of weather; there is no need to work in the rain or extreme heat and the beach is nearby.
There is a tiny straw bale house on the land and a caravan for guests.
Would suit an individual or couple who are happy with very basic facilities. It may suit weekenders. Water is from a private supply.
Public transport (bus and train) is within 1 mile and we are on sustrans route 8.
Within 2 miles is a small shop and pub, within 5 miles many shops, bank, pharmacy, take-away food, restaurants and cafes.
There are many lovely places to visit here, such as Harlech castle, Potmeirion, beautiful beaches, the Ff... more inside

Hi there, thank you for dropping by!

We are in the very early stages of developing a new campsite on tree fringed established grounds in the heart of Fenland. We live in 5 bedroom house that sits in about 4.5 acres (2 hectares). I have just bought the house from my father (however it's been in the family for many years). We're currently looking for a little bit of help prepping the campsite grounds and with the house.

The Fens if you don't know are extremely flat :-) It's a phantasmagoric other-worldly place riven with drainage channels and water courses and has some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets you will ever see.

We're situated in the small village of Welney on the banks of the Ouse Washes nature reserve close to the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. There is a pub in the village that serves lovely food and we're near the Cathedral city of Ely and Cambridge and just 1hr 15 mins minutes from London by the train.

The village of Welney is known as the me... more inside

-----------------
This is a 25 acres smallholding on the edge of Dartmoor, 3 miles from the market town of Okehampton. We run a market garden following organic and sustainable principles (certified by Soil Association). We are keen in working with nature to develop systems which allow us to reduce our impact on the earth.

We grow using no-dig methods, adapting to our specific conditions here in Dartmoor; clay soil, high rainfall and strong winds. We use raised beds and a polyculture system, using hay to mulch our beds, allowing self-seeding and including useful wild greens amongst our plants, both edible and useful system plants that help enrich the soil and feed the soil life.

We are interested in using wild greens or weeds and we incorporate them in our salad mixtures but also sell them on their own right and Sara use them to make tasty things to sell at markets and for small-scale catering.

We are also developing a woodland walk to make our land more accessible ... more inside

We are a couple.. Tom (38) and Jacqui (33).

We have been given planning permission for a dwelling under the new Wales-wide 'One Planet Development' policy, which offers people the chance to build a home 'in the open countryside' if they can demonstrate a commitment to various low-impact, environmentally responsible principles while also providing for the monetary needs of the household with a 'land-based livelihood' (in our case a tree nursery and processed fruit business) and the production of a large proportion of one's own food and fuel etc.

We like to think we can offer you a good return for your help, and that your contribution will be honoured. We have a good library, are passionate about what we do, discuss regenerative agriculture often and are well connected with other producers in the area. You will hopefully learn a lot with us.

We currently stay in a rented barn on a neighbouring farm. It's a one-room situation so unfortunately we can't offer accommodation her... more inside

We are a friendly, ordinary family who moved to this beautiful remote village in Scotland some 10 years ago, to enjoy a better quality of life than we had in Stockport. We are currently building our house, a traditionally built, all masonry three storey property on a lovely plot of land overlooking the Sound of Mull. Unusually, our house is truly self-built, as we are carrying out all of the work ourselves and are not involving subcontractors apart from very specific items, for example, we brought in a subcontractor to excavate 2000 tons of rock from the site, where we have built our basement.
As there is a huge variety of different disciplines being employed in building the property, it is a fantastic opportunity for somebody to learn all about an enormous range of different construction techniques, and will include disciplines such as bricklaying, joinery, electrical work, plumbing, drainage and other skills.
We are offering the opportunity for someone to come and assist... more inside

I own a large self contained unit within a co-housing community on the outskirts of Bradford on Avon. We own about 2.5 hectares of beautiful land, with orchard, swimming pool, tennis court and other amenities. Some of us have our own organic vegetable plots.

I would like one or two volunteers (non-smokers please) to help with a variety of jobs, mostly gardening work on my vegetable plot or other outside tasks, or sometimes helping with practical jobs indoors such as decorating or cleaning.

In exchange for accommodation and meals, I would like approx 4-5 hours' work per day, which can be organised flexibly according to our respective needs.

You will have your own comfortable bedroom (or shared with another Helpx volunteer, if agreed). There is plenty of good quality fresh food to which you can help yourself for breakfast and lunch, and a cooked meal in the evening. I am mostly vegetarian and can cater for other diets by arrangement.

I can offer some help with English i... more inside
