Area: Heathrow, London, EnglandHello Travellers! I am a Workaway volunteer and now, for a limited time, a Host. I have volunteered in Spain using this site and elsewhere with other organisations, and really think it is a great way to travel, meet people and have unique and interesting experiences. I am a 44 year old male, non smoker, vegetarian and rarely drink. Short stays available in return for cooking, cleaning, language practice and sharing of knowledge and experiences. Longer stays may be available to the right person or if the situation changes. Read on for more info on the two properties.

Area:My main objective is to develop commercially viable, non-industrial food production systems. I am also interested in facilitating the re-introduction of heritage plant varieties (edible perennials), and initiating a study on the health benefits of traditional diets (raw milk, pickled vegetables, etc) The farm has 150 water buffalo that are used for fresh milk, butter and fresh cheese. We have a 2.5 hectare food forest in progress and raised bed gardens for the production of vegetables and herbs, an area which we will be expanding in 2014. We keep 2 horses that are used for riding and I am interested in developing this further, possibly as a future eco-tourism venture. The rooms are comfortable (double bunk beds) with a shared spacious kitchen and bathroom. Volunteers have the benefits of fresh buffalo milk, butter and cheese, and organic vegetables from the garden. We are NOT a place for "lounge lizards", but our guidelines are few and simple. You WILL be expected to put in 4-5 hours' work each day with at least one day off per week, but in exchange we provide excellent food and comfortable accommodation for our helpers. Volunteers with practical skills, such as carpentry, construction, veg growing or cooking, are particularly welcome! Those motivated to contribute something tangible to the farm will do well here.
