Région: New South WalesWe are family of 4 with a small poodle, living in a beautiful old worker's cottage in the rainforested hills of Rosebank NSW. We are 30 mins from Byron Bay, 25 mins from Lismore, 25 mins from Mullumbimby and 1 hour from the Gold Coast. The beautiful Minyon Falls and National Park are just around the corner. This is truly a magical part of the world, and we are sure you will fall in love with it too. We are on a small property and your accommodation will be a fully furnished and lovely self contained garden flat only 20 metres from the main house.
Région: EnglandWe are a community and volunteer-led 1 acre forest garden. It's about 2 miles from the city centre and it's in its 5th year which means all the trees are roughly five years old. The garden is open-access and a place local people can come to enjoy any time (because there's no gate!). A forest garden is a whole new way of gardening, where we recreate an open woodland ecosystem, but fill it with a mix of both common and unusual edible plants, trees, shrubs and a whole lot more! We've had regular workdays for the past few years but are now looking FOR VOLUNTEERS FOR THE FIRST TWO WEEKS OF SEPTEMBER! PLEASE NOTE THIS IS TO REGISTER YOUR INTEREST ONLY WE ARE NOT SURE WHETHER IT WILL HAPPEN OR NOT YET. You'll be on site from 11-5pm (and possibly longer) every day with one day off. On Sunday I'm (Ben) giving a plant ID course from 12-5pm which is costed for the public but will be free for you if you want to do it. Otherwise Sunday will be your free day where you can wander free as a bird around Leeds, maybe go into the Dales if you're feeling organised:) You'll be joined throughout the week by local volunteers. There should also be a scything workshop and mushroom inoculation during the week but this is to be confirmed. We'll be with you the whole time and will engage and teach you about forest gardening, permaculture, the wildlife there and also the practicalities of running a such a project in an urban area. During the week we aim to: - Plant a lot of unusual perennial plants - Do some work in the nursery, - Level the bottom part of the site and put in some hugelkultur beds. All very permaculture and very exciting! We'll put you up in the housing co-op, which the leaders are a part of, 2 mins walk from the garden. No bedding or sleeping bags needed and there are sanitary facilities and all that kind of stuff. You'll get fed and so on and if you're up for it in the evening we've got good ideas for socials. For example, there's an open mic night at the pub down the road, full of interesting musicians and people. We can also show you the other urban food growing projects hooray! If all that sounds good then please contact us. We want to fill places as soon as possible. You need to be physically fit and we can accommodate all dietary requirements. You need to bring good outdoor clothes and shoes, but that's about it really. Once you've contacted us we'll give you directions: Just so you know the garden is only 30 mins walk from Leeds bus and train stations in the city centre so no need to go well out in the country on a bus that goes once a day. Hope to hear from you! Ben and Joanna
