    Beschreibung

    We are Saffron and Alex a couple in our early 50’s with 2 grown up sons and a grandson. We live with our dog Nettle a lively lurcher and our kitten Mishka near the Welsh border between Hay on Wye and Hereford in a beautiful peaceful spot on the top of a hill with amazing views and walks.
    We lived in an intentional farming community with 50 residents/members for 11 years with our children, looking after animals and growing food together, we enjoyed working on projects in groups. During this time we hosted lots of volunteers ( workaway and Wwoof) and enjoyed the cultural exchange.
    We have now moved to a house with 1.5 acres of land where we have a polytunnel, vegetable beds, and a small coppice area and orchard which we work organically using permaculture and some forest gardening principles. We would like to host volunteers and have lots of projects and work we need help with. We only grow food and store wood for ourselves and are not selling/ a business.
    We both work part time Alex is a music teacher and plays most instruments including guitar, trumpet and piano and plays in quite a few bands, I am a speech and language therapist working with children with special educational needs and I love being outside, growing stuff and walking. We both enjoy cooking and do quite a bit of preserving food.
    We are mainly vegan but do eat local eggs and are thinking about having chickens and maybe alpacas!
    The kind of work could include:
    Clearing brambles and nettles
    Making steps and paths
    Hedge laying
    Coppicing
    Storing wood
    Pruning fruit trees
    Sowing, planting vegetables
    Turning the compost heap
    Scything our small field
    Making preserves, picking and preserving vegetables
