    Help needed with all aspects of growing organically in polytunnels and outdoor many different vegetables. A willingness to learn is the most skill you will need as we have many years of experience and love working with our helpers to make it an enjoyable experience.
    We need help depending on time of year with sowing seeds,planting vegetables, weeding and harvesting. We do not work outside if it is raining and do a great variety of tasks each day.But please if are not interested in Organic food and farming and just want a place to stop on your travels it will not be a positive experience .We are booking helpers from March 2020 when the growing season starts here.
