This is a family concern where we are hoping to turn a seven acre newly planted wood into an eco space for wild life protection and some food crops.
We are totally eco warriors though very new to a major project.
We have started work but could use some help from a like minded person.
It would be helpful to have workaways that have done some gardening and who can use small power tools.
There are four areas of activity.
1. Garden, fruit, vegetables and some flowers.
Weeding, watering, composting etc.
2. Woodland area.
Management of trees, paths, wildlife habitat
3. Estate management. Work on the walls, boundaries, paths, drainage etc
4. The buildings. maintenance of sheds, out door office, drains etc
So could you let me know if you have experience in any of these areas as it is a big help to decide which of you to respond to. We really need people with a bit of experience.
We have a good life here, it is quiet but beautiful and everyone is friendly.
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
We are trying to create an eco wood with bee friendly plants, food plants and wild life protection in a seven acre field.
Some work has already been done and we are ready for a new phase of the project.
There will be a lot of physical outdoor task, some research to do, discussions to contribute to and various planting and general husbandry.
English and some French
At the moment there is a spare room in the family home but a cabin in the wood may shortly be available.
This is a very rural area and there are only four buses a day into the nearest small town. However there is a railway station with fast links to several cities. Our visitors have so far found that they get plenty of cultural input and improve their English.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
More than two
This is a family home where people come and go and there is always something interesting going on. There are all ages here and we are all into organics, local produce, growing and protecting wild life. We often go into Edinburgh and Glasgow and travellers will learn about rural life in Scotland and city life.
