    Description

    Hi I'm looking for help on my Dads 12 acre eco farm with 15 strange breed sheep, 3 pigs, 2 dogs, 200 chickens a few ducks and 1 goose (who thinks he's a duck) and My Nans 1/2 acre ornamental and vegetable garden. You would hopefully be staying with other workawayers at my nans in one of two double bedrooms.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My Dad is a tree surgeon with 26 years of experience, if workawayers want to learn about trees, chainsaws, chippers, tree climbing, felling, tree surgery, tree disease, garden design, landscaping, construction or just the practical operation of a established tree surgery and landscaping business then he's your man. He’s lived on the farm for 13 years and Dad grew up farming in NZ.

    I studied some agricultural science at uni as part of my degree in Biotechnology and recently I'm quite into some permaculture and other sustainable gardening and farming approaches. I've also worked in the brewing industry for 4 years and have a degree in beer. I enjoy home brewing and grow my own hops, If I'm brewing I can teach you how it all works. I also make kombucha and wines. I'm growing grape vines which need tending to as well.

    My Nan is a great cook and good at making jams and chutneys from produce from the garden. She is very knowledgeable about the names of plants and local history, she would love to show you around Warwick town and some of the local English country gardens she volunteers at as well as her own beautiful garden.

    There are many projects and routein tasks going on in both the farm and the garden. The work we will be doing is flexible so if there's a particular area you want to work in e.g. Permaculture, brewing, preservation, flowers and plant taxonomy, carpentry, construction, livestock! Tree surgery.You can either focus on one area or we can try and get you a mixture of tasks.
