  • Descripción


    We are a warm and welcoming family who live in Speyside, Moray NE Scotland in an idyllic and tranquil valley at the foot of Ben Rinnes, Moray's highest mountain. We are surrounded by wildlife and natural beauty and have spectacular views of the dark night sky.
    We have 1 daughter left at home, from five, 2 wee dogs & 2 curious cats. We are vegetarian, love to grow food, live as low impact as possible and have recently started our own small buisness - a hobbitsy holiday home, built using the local, plentiful and renewable materials of wood, straw, stone, earth, lime and clay. We designed and built it with love, to evoke a real sense of healing, inner peace and harmony for all who stay there.
    I run a small charity who promote natural-build as a means to get a home of your own. We're in the early stages of a research project looking at the effects of the natural home on mental health and wellbeing.
    We love our space, it's pretty special. We would like to invite Workaway Volunteers to join us and make it even more special!

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We are a Scottish family living a low impact life and would be happy to share our passion for eco/heritage building, low impact living, local food and Scottish culture with volunteers. I like to listen to our volunteers and find out what they would like to learn and share, then work up a schedule from there. I have many years experience in networking and ethical buisness development and would happily support charity or new business development. As a networker, I have extensive networks within the third sector and would be delighted to enable any volunteers to make further connections to develop their interests if needed.

    We would love to host people who can help us with landscaping and veggie growing - especially those with experience in permaculture or therapeutic gardening. We are looking for creative ideas to make our space even more magical with fairy houses and hidden wonders! There's also a childs "secret den" which could do with some ideas and work to make it more fun and interesting. We are very open to and welcome creative ideas and input. We would also welcome help with the shared cooking, breadmaking, art and crafts and if interested, we would be open to input with the research project we are conducting into the natural home and its effects on mental health and wellbeing.
