  • Beschreibung


    My husband and I started renovating an old Victorian building 6 years ago and are coming to the end of the building phase. We moved in 2years ago and are working to create a garden from the building site with help from Workawayers. So far we have managed to build 5 raised beds which produced some fruit and vegetables for the kitchen last year. We hope to have a bigger this harvest this
    We have 3 grown-up children and 8 grandchildren, all of whom pay us regular visits.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We have over 10 years experience of hosting overseas guests and enjoy the cultural exchange finding out about the lives of our visitors while sharing our own experiences. Conversations over meals and while working in the garden are always lively as we exchange ideas and are a good way to help our guest improve their language skills. We invite guests to join us in our activities when possible enabling them to meet a wider range of people.
    This area of rural Essex has a rich history dating back to 12th century with plenty of sites to visit.

  • Arbeit


    We are looking for help with the maintenance of the existing beds and input to move the rest of the garden forward. Erecting a polytunnel, building a fruit cage, restoring an old greenhouse, clearing brambles and ivy from overgrown areas, preparing the ground for winter planting of fruit trees and creating a dry gravel garden are all on the to do list. We need Workawayers to help us get things done faster than we can manage on our own. You will be working alongside Lyn and have the opportunity to learn new skills from her lifetime experience of gardening.

    Large room shared by Workawayers. Double bunks. Bathroom with bath and shower. TV. Internet. Meals are eaten together with Lyn doing most of the cooking. We are meat eaters but happily produce vegetarian/vegan meals and can cater for other diets as necessary. Help with clearing up is expected. We love it when guests produce a typical meal from their country to share with us.
