    We are a family of five on a 7 acre smallholding in a beautiful valley 2 miles from the stunning coastline nr Cardigan in west Wales.
    Our children are 8, 12 and 15, two are growing without schooling and the eldest has chosen school. We are in the early stages of setting up a democratic school for children, this will be the first democratic school in Wales. This school will run on Principles similar to The Sudbury Model, and Summerhill in England.

    We have sheep, chickens, lovely large garden, polytunnel, a large pond and streams, fields and woodland.
    We are looking for people this winter/Spring 2020 to help with, and who are interested in any of the following:
    DIY at our idylic ochard cabin
    Gardening veggies and flowers
    Weeding and path maintenance
    Garden and orchard maintenance
    Woodland management and logging
    Making a woodland path
    Using Non-violent communication
    Democratic/child-led education
    Childcare and child development
    Nutrition and food preparation
    General house keeping

    We love eating our own food and looking after the land with care.
    In Feb and March of 2020 we would love help with any of the following: planting, general gardening, logs, web design, general food prep and help, and engaging with the children. One daughter is really wanting to practice her french, the other her spanish. If you are interested in coming we like the exchange to include 2 or 3 hours per day depending on the task, 5 days per week. In return we can provide a big warm welcome, accommodation in our beautiful cabin, provide wifi, and you will be in a wonderful part of the world just by a wild rugged coast. You will have your own outdoor kitchen at the cabin and we would prefer you to cook for yourself (unless you'd like to do more hours and cook for the family as well, then we'll buy the food.) We can help you get to the shops to buy your own food. Occasionally eating together would be something we'd enjoy. Food, cooking and hours are all negotiable and we would love to hear from you and discuss what would be your preference.
