Hi my name is Joe, I'm 33 years old and I am currently working on an eco-building project in a local woodland. The main construction is a large straw bale walled roundhouse that will be used for storage of agricultural equipment. It has reciprocal roof - which looks really cool. I'm really keen to have some workaway people to help out in the garden and with DIY!
I studied Physics at university and have been a teacher of mathematics for two years. I love to cycle and have done a few trips through Europe - from the UK to Barcelona, to Stockholm, to Montpelier and to Prague! I like juggling, photography, video editing and living in the wilderness!
We are really looking for people who can problem-solve creatively, and can be independent.
Hope to see you soon!

Currently working on the vegetable garden, growing hops and managing the woodland/hedging.
We normally have some other projects going on: like working on an off grid solar system, converting a van to a camper van and general maintance and upkeep of the straw bale and clay building and green roof.
Previous help: The main project that we would like help with is the roundhouse store with green roof - it is building using wood from the woodland we planted, local clay and any recycled building materials that we can find. We would currently love help finishing building and rendering the straw bale walls of the store using clay render. We are also putting in the doors and timber floor in which takes some work! The store is in a woodland so we would also like help managing the woodland and collecting firewood. There is a large vegetable patch if you like gardening and chickens to look after. There is lots to do and learn - the place is really inspirational!
We are really looking for people who have done a bit of building before, can problem solve creatively, can be independent and enjoy living in the great outdoors (even when it gets a little cold!)
