My wife and I live in a small village about ten miles outside of Oxford, in beautiful countryside. I am an acupuncturist and meditation teacher and my wife is a yoga and Qi Gong teacher. We also run a charity that arranges operations for disabled children in China and Tibet, and over the last twenty years we have both been photojournalists working in Iraq, Afghanistan, China, Tibet...

Help around the house
Our guests would hopefully have an interest in nature and gardening, and could use this as an opportunity to work outside, teaching and learning and exploring nature, and growing in an organic permaculture way.
We are looking for two easy going people who like eating,, nature, animals, and interested in helping in the garden, and growing vegetables. Some of the work is fairly manual like spreading wood chips, turning compost, and lots of weeding, planting, and growing food.

House with ample space for quiet and alone time, right on the edge of miles and miles of gorgeous hiking.
Oxford and the surrounding area is perfect for people who love hiking, but then Oxford City centre is only about ten miles away, and London is just a 55 minute train ride away. So there are endless things to do.
