  • Description


    Help wanted immediately!

    We are a family with 4 children who live in a bio-dynamic and organic small holding in somerset. We are looking for a creative, practical and fun couple to help us with practical projects such as painting, building veg beds and putting up fences.
    Jono is not working at the moment so you will have someone to work with each day.

    We have some caravans that we will live in next year and we need help to put them together and make a home. So really hoping to attract practical and handy people to help us.

    We have sheep, bees, and a big garden with large veggie garden, orchards and medicinal flower beds. An interest, love and knowledge of gardening would be an advantage.
    We also have a beautiful dog that loves long walks.
    We are a busy and active small family, who love having people around. The children adore having extra people in the house who can fire their imaginations, and be another person to play games with.

    we are looking for a creative, fun and easy going person, or couple to help us . we are happy to have a long term situation. Life for me is very busy now as I am a full time student studying herbalism. So i would love to find people who would like to share our rural idyl. The garden needs some attention, and we need to de clutter the house and paint bits of it. Also we have the big caravan conversion project that we need help with.

    Knowledge and an interest in gardening is useful. Also a love a nature is a must as we are rural here, and it is quiet!
    An interest in nutrition or healthy eating would be a bonus.

    We have a private and cosy converted railway carriage, with its own on-suite bathroom. It is cosy through all times of the year, and provides a warm and lovely private space away from the busyness of the house.,

    A love of nature is a must to live here. we live rurally. The people who love nature and are more self contained get on the best here. There are lots of beautiful walks around the place, and beautiful places to visit locally.
