  • Description


    Help wanted in January

    We are a family with 4 children who live in a bio-dynamic and organic small holding in Somerset.
    The children are 13, 11 and 7 year old twins. I am a student Herbalist and my husband Jono is involved in sustainable business.
    We are looking for a friendly couple to help us for a few weeks in January.
    We have big changes afoot as we are moving house, and have quite a lot of sorting and organising to do.

    We have a warm and cosy self contained house available for you to stay in, with its own bathroom etc. It is nice and quiet, and away from all the noise of the household.

    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.

    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.
