*️️We are now fully booked for 2019 season*️️
We are a couple running an organic permaculture smallholding in Cornwall. We have ducks, chickens, geese, beehives, rabbits and sheep as well as growing a lot of our own food. We have a small community here with 5 or so residents and usually 3 or 4 workawayers. We often take workawayers last minute as it is easier to organise! For May we have a lot of building projects on, gates, compost toilets, putting up yurts, polytunnel etc. As well as the usual; gardening, animal care, maintenance, cooking, help with computer stuff and housework. We are mainly looking for volunteers from the 28th of April onwards, especially people with DIY or ecobuilding skills. We also really need some help with our website! Accommodation will be camping.
