    Beschreibung

    We are a charity based between Chard, Axminster and Crewkerne (Somerset/Devon/Dorset border, UK). Our farm is a 132 acre organic educational and therapeutic centre that welcomes over 4,000 visitors of all ages and abilities in a residential and day visit capacity. For the last 30 years we have engaged with and educated visitors using nature and the farming environment as our resource; it is fun, inspirational and innovative.
    There are 16 staff here, some of whom live on the farm. We've got fruit and vegetable gardens, a river, woodlands and lots of animals! Sheep, cattle, chickens, goats, pigs, a horse and lots of wildlife lives here too.
    We require volunteers who are highly motivated and enjoy working. You need to be pro-active, positive and resilient. What you put in, you will get back!

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We will teach volunteers basic animal care, seasonal horticultural skills and improve their knowledge in organic vegetable growing. Volunteers may have the opportunity to join different lessons that we teach on the farm, such as Hands on Farming, Survival in the Wild and River Dipping, in order to get an overview of our outdoor education programme. If appropriate, there may also be the opportunity to shadow our Care farming groups and educational groups, in your own time.
    Volunteers will experience country living and rural village life. It's a beautiful, quiet farm that is near the stunning world heritage site of the Jurassic Coast (Lyme Regis is our local beach, 13 miles away).

    Coronavirus update:
    Please note: WE ARE ONLY ACCEPTING TWO VOLUNTEERS WHO ARE IN A BUBBLE TOGETHER AT THIS TIME.
    In order to meet social distancing requirements we are reducing the number of volunteers that we take at any one time. Due to the pressures that the charity is under we are also requesting that applicant's standard of English is good and that applicants have some horticulture or conservation or animal care or tool skills/experience.
    You will still get a fabulous experience and know that you are helping an incredibly worthwhile charity at the same time.
    We hope that you understand why we are being stricter about our requirements.
    Please do not apply if your English is not good or you do not have experience that is relevant to the place. Many thanks and we wish you success.

    Previous information:
    We need residential volunteers to help out at the charity. Most of the help is horticultural and it doesn't matter if you don't have much experience as we can teach you. There are day to day jobs of watering, picking, sowing and weeding but also projects such as raised-bed building and revamping areas such as the recycled garden.
    There is also animal care to be done which involves feeding up and putting our lovely hens to bed!
    We always have the need for help with conservation and construction such as building wooden bridges and animal housing. There's always plenty of work to be done and plenty of diversity!
    In exchange for your help we provide an en-suite bedroom (twin) and shared living room and all of your food. Be prepared to eat plenty of cake and increase in size!

    Coronavirus update:
    In order to meet social distancing requirements you will need to be in a bubble with your friend and there will not be anyone else to share with.

    Previous information:
    In exchange for your help we provide an en-suite bedroom. We have 2 twin bedrooms, both en-suite, and shared living room and all of your food while you are on site. Bedrooms are allocated by staff. The food is home cooked and we use as much as possible from the organic farm including vegetables, fruit, eggs and meat. Food that we do not grow we source as locally as possibly and have strict animal welfare standards. We are able to accommodate any dietary requirements with advance notice. If you're here in the summer, house martins will be your neighbours, outside your window under the eaves of the building.

    We have bicycles so if you don't have your own transport you can get around. There is also a bus service. Apart from the beautiful walks from the farm to local villages, (with shops, pubs, swimming pools and churches) there are also places of interest such as Forde Abbey (an old monastery with beautiful gardens) and Lambert's Castle (a hill fort). There is also the Jurassic coast nearby with amazing views, fossils to find and gorgeous food shops, plenty of opportunity to walk, find a memento and absorb the culture of this beautiful part of the country.
    As we are in a rural setting and not a community you will need to be fairly self-sufficient and being sociable is really important too. We have lots of different people at the farm and some of us live here so there might be opportunities to join in with social events but please do not expect this.
    We are a charity that is respectful of the environment and each other which we expect from our volunteers. All of the staff get along really well and enjoy having a laugh together.
