  • Description

    Description

    I work for an educational charity, reconnecting young people with food and farming. I grow much of my own food inspired by permaculture techniques on half an acre of land near the beautiful Suffolk coast. My dog needs looking after when I am away with work, and there is always plenty to do in the garden!

    Help

    I would like help from an individual or couple to look after my 1/2 acre garden and my dog when I am away. I live in a rural area, which is ideal for those who love walking and cycling. If you are looking for a peaceful stay with country pubs and good local food, this is for you!
    The workload will be very minimal; simply maintaining the garden and polytunnel as required, and general outdoor tasks. You will preferably have some knowledge and experience of organic vegetable growing, but must be dog-friendly.
    During the days I am away, my dog would need walking for an hour in the morning, and a shorter walk in the evening. She is a very friendly Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross, she loves people and is fine with most dogs, but is kept on a short lead when greeting other dogs as a precaution.
    The accomodation is used as a holiday rental in the summer months, so is of a high standard and must be well looked after.
