  • Description


    Im wanting to make the garden and home into a working retreat, so help with the vegetable garden and making a lovely zen place and painting up the house is the main things, if someone is interested in woodwork that would be great as looking to make a wishing well, begoda etc, Im also in the middle of creating a Herbarium and wanting to created a chakra garden and Labyrinth, Hoping to find a greenhouse to put up to as lost my poly tunnel in last years storms.

    A passion for gardening and cooking would also be a great advantage I am predominately plant based but will eat eggs if from happy chickens etc ,This will suit someone who is looking to get away from society as very quiet , I work during the day so apart from some air b n b s now and again you will be on your own, so if you love having a challenge and working on your own inititive and like meditation, peace quiet and the country this is the place for you .Spanish speakers would be great as love to learn the language. Accomodation is lovely although basic a little attic room converted by some of my workaways,
    I provide food for 3 full meals a day, ( A lot of the time you will be preparing your own food and if at the right time of the year it will be organic and out of the garden, . ( Please bring your own snacks etc if you eat between meals) . Namaste Hils x

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As i am in a little village this would suit someone who wants to spend a lot of time amongst nature, peace and quiet and has a passion for gardening walking A bus runs from the bottom of the road until 5 pm at night and a very cheap taxi service is available . I’m also very open to volunteers spreading their twenty hours over 3-4 days so they can have whole days to go off and explore and get to know the area

    That would depend on size, I have a little Renault Traffic camper so something like that would fit on my driveway too, but not a big double base or something sorry that would be too big.
