  • Description

    Description

    Discover life in a tiny rural village,far from the trappings of city and tourist destinations.Here our family has live for the past 28 years, growing and building our own tranquil Haven.
    Our activities are split between working on a 6 hectare permaculture smallholding with a huge forest garden, and the local shop and cafe where we supply an essential community service.The link with nature, our neighbors,and volunteers is an important part of what we do.

    Be prepared for new things and above all keep an open mind.
    UPDATE 2020
    As winter arrives our focus switches to preparing and storing fire wood. If the weather is not good there is always repairs, cleaning and painting at the cafe.
    we are looking for dynamic helpers, who have a sense of humor , who can adapt to new challenges, don't mind getting their hands dirty and are wanting to expand their knowledge of;
    Rural life
    Permaculture gardening
    Woodland skills
    Pond ecosystems
    Basic construction and renovation
    Recycling and upcycling
    Food and drink

    Good luck and have a great workaway experience
    Phil and Helen

  • Help

    Help

    Workawayers give a helping hand two or three hours in the morning and after a long lunch break another couple of hours in the afternoon.
    The help can be physically demanding as sometimes learning new skills is challenging.
    We take good care of you but would also appreciate a hand with the daily chores like the dishes, sweeping up etc.
    You may need to bring old clothes, strong shoes,and work gloves.

    Please--- No princesses or drama Queens. ---Thank you
