    Description

    As well as the usual germinating, sowing and maintenance of organic vegetables and fruit trees. Volunteers would be expected to help with anything from clearing, digging, planting, harvesting, painting, wood chopping and general maintenance depending on the weather and time of year. We prefer stays of 4 weeks initially or longer if everything works out. We would particularly like to hear from strong people, who love outdoors. During the summer months we host weddings and volunteers would be expected to help set up, tend bonfires and keep the teki torches lit.
    We also have 5 cats, 24 Chickens, 1 Turkey and 2 Donkeys which we would love help with.
    Accommodation is provided in a separate 3 bedroom apartment with own cooking facilities TV & internet access etc., which gives volunteers the opportunity to cook there own meals, sometimes, if they wish but (usually) we all share meals together. Nearest pub & shop 1 KM. Various bikes provided.
    PLEASE ENSURE YOU HAVE PERSONAL INSURANCE
