  • Description


    Come do some family gardening with us and visit Liverpool, NW England. I'm a single man in my forties, redesigning a small allotment - site is not large (10m x 15 m) but I need help digging, laying slabs, weeding, planting, &c. The fabulous port city of Liverpool is 10 minutes away.

    As well as free accommodation, I can offer guidance into visitng Liverpool/NW England/N Wales area. I'm imagining younger travellers who can do maybe 4 days work and have 3 days free to tour/visit the area.

    I am a busy university professor who runs a vegetable-growing allotment, mainly for my son who is sometimes around too, otherwise I live on my own. Need help clearing and some redesign. It's not a huge site (10meters x 15 meters) - projects for short-term visitors (3-7days) interested also in touring Liverpool/NW England/N Wales. Visitors must have some gardening experience but don't have to be highly qualified.
    In your spare time there is countryside to the west, for walking/cycling trips around the beautiful Wirral peninsula. Beautiful beaches and birdwatching sites. And there is the amazing city of Liverpool to the east, with its World Heritage waterfront, galleries, parks, museums, bars &c.
