    Description

    Beautiful 23 acre site, with veg growing, chickens, community garden, nature reserves, orchard, woodland and a natural pool, in easy reach of Oxford.

    Our non-profit community garden is open to local people to grow, forage, learn and eat together. Its aim is to bring people closer to nature and to share the joys of being outside and gardening together. The garden also provides an accessible and therapeutic space for people from vulnerable or disadvantaged backgrounds. The garden is managed with organic and sustainable permaculture techniques, and currently features raised beds, a veg garden, a cob oven and our resident chickens.

    We are looking for work exchangers to help to us with: basic gardening (both horticultural and gardens), help running community garden, self sustainability measures, general maintenance and building – we’re hoping to create some workshop spaces for the community garden soon!

    In return we offer food (on working days) accommodation, facilities and bikes to borrow. Accommodation is in the form of caravanning or camping in our volunteer living area. We have a shared kitchen space, shower facilities and a natural pool which are available on weekdays. Please get in touch for more detail. No smokers please, and be aware that the site is very peaceful and quite isolated, so don’t expect any wild party vibes!

    We would appreciate knowing what skills or experience you already have so we can think what work would be best.
