    *️️️️️️️looking for a last minute volunteer due to drop outs*

    We are a couple running an organic permaculture smallholding in Cornwall. We have ducks, chickens, geese, beehives, rabbits and sheep as well as growing a lot of our own food. We have a small community here with 6 full time residents and usually 2 or 3 workawayers. We often take workawayers last minute as it is easier to organise! We have a lot of building projects on, gates, compost toilets, putting up yurts, polytunnel etc. As well as the usual; gardening, animal care, maintenance, cooking, help with computer stuff and housework. Accommodation will be in a shared yurt.

    What else ...

    We are close to the small town of bude and also to some good surf beaches. Liss is a surf instructor and Joe is a chef / carpenter so you can learn some of these skills. Let us know if you are particularly interested in something. We practice permaculture so if you are interested in permaculture or want to learn, you are very welcome. We are out in the countryside so having your own vehicle is a bonus.
