    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are involved in Permaculture gardening, care of the earth and biodiversity. The workawayer will have the opportunity to help in problem solving and development of our plans for the garden and buildings. We are active in local music and folk music from around the world.

  • Help


    We need seasonal help with the garden which is designed on permaculture principles. The garden is just under an acre with vegetables, fruit trees and bushes and flowerbeds. We have some larger projects including construction of a poly tunnel. We have a garage and workshop which need a major tidy up and shelves put up and some simple carpentry. We also have have some bikes that need repair which are then free to use. Projects for the spring include fencing (our garden gets visits from moose and roe deer) and finishing a pond with drainage ditches.
