I am a retired English teacher with an interest in all things organic. I live with my husband Richard who is a computer manager, and our newest family member, a rather naughty little puppy.
We have built a straw bale house in our garden, We keep bees and run a Community Orchard. We are looking for a native Spanish speaker with a good accent to speak Spanish to our grandchildren, who live down the road from me. They are 3 and 5 years old.
We will probably now not need any help until the Spring, February at the earliest. Then we have decking to power wash and re-paint, sails to put in place, some painting - both external and internal - and a brick walll to build.
Plus the normal garden, house and child care work.
In return I will help the volunteer to improve their English, and you have a nice bedroom and bathroom and good food which is mainly vegetarian.
We have an internationally renowned Art Gallery in Wakefield, a wonderful Sculpture Park, and the University city of Le... more inside

We're a multi-generational household looking for someone helpful and relaxed to come and stay for a week or two. There's lots to get involved with including various garden projects, hanging out with an 8 month old, helping with some housework and potentially sharing permaculture-inspired design ideas for our beautiful but underused space.

In return for an average of 5 hours work a day (we can be flexible with how this is spread through the week) we can offer you your own room, meals together in the evening and all your food while you're in the house in a peaceful rural location with frequent trains to London half an hour's walk away (always happy to give you a lift into town if we're around).

Our house is friendly and warm and a bit of a mess and there are often people popping in and there's a barbecue and a firepit and we'll drink together and we eat meat and we have a mad cat - if all this sounds like your cup of tea get in touch :-) We have been 'helpers' ourselves durin... more inside

Hi,

We are very lucky to have a beautiful pocket of land set in the rolling hills of Devon, surrounded by stunning countryside. We are looking for help with various small projects. We're in Mid Devon and it's half hour drive to lovely beaches, 15 minutes into the historic city of Exeter and half hour to Dartmoor.

The land is a mixture of meadow bordered by traditional hedges, deciduous trees and has a lovely little stream running along one side. There gare 3 hectares in total, we have half and the other half belongs to friends. We are a small alternative community where everyone has their own home but come together for social... more inside

The Erraid Community is a small island off the Isle of Mull (Inner Hebrides) and part of the Findhorn Foundation Community. As a spiritual land-based community we live and work together as custodians of the island and cottages that were built for the northern lighthouse board in the 1860s. Our life is very practical whilst living with spiritual principles. Our main role here as custodians of the island is to maintain the cottages and outbuildings. This involves: painting, carpentry, plumbing, electrical, maintaining the many sash windows, metal work, fencing and much more. Our second priority is keeping our aim of trying to live off the land as much as we can, we have organic gardens, two poly-tunnels and many chickens. Alongside that we are running a guest programme called Love in Action, and we offer retreats. Please read more on www.erraid.com.

We have space from Saturday 25th of May untill Saturday 6th of July.
Or from Saturday 7th of September onwards.

This is a homestay in the South of England; the house is surrounded by open countryside and with a large garden. The next opportunities for Helpxers are from April 2019 onwards and it would ideally suit someone who is aged around 18 to 40. If you are a carpenter or if you have special skills in garden work instead of carpentry then either would be very useful but definitely not essential.

My name`s Anthony; born in the UK in the 1950s I moved from London to Hampshire in October 2014. There is a variety of work to do here. When the weather is good enough we could be looking after the garden; clearing the weeds, tending the vegetable patch, building fences, chopping wood, cutting the grass, raking up the leaves, planting shrubs and trimming hedges. Inside the house there will be general cleaning and helping to prepare meals. Usually we would work as a team but it helps if you can self-motivate and work alone sometimes.

You have your own room and all meals, in return for just a ... more inside

Single person or couple. Are you free ideally for minimum 5 months from about June until end October 2019? We are looking for an open-minded, relaxed and efficient person to come and help in a BnB and family household. This is mostly domestic work in the kitchen (the hub of the house which needs constant tidying and cleaning!) also providing back-up cleaning in the B&B, sometimes meeting and greeting, waitressing where required.

There is plenty of opportunity to improve your English with lots of conversation in the house on a variety of subjects. If you come as a couple, one can work in the local village.

Flexibility and positivity key to your enjoyment here! I can put you in touch with some previous helpers so you can get an idea of what it's like. Must be happy in the countryside and to self-entertain as this is a rural location - but there is always something to do. Let me know if you have any questions!
