In 2017 we packed up our little family and moved from the busy city of London to the countryside ( well only an hour away ! )
We have since been exploring permaculture practices in our backyard.

We see the forest here as a metaphor for experiencing nature's rhythms and the interconnected relationships which, in turn, inspires change.
Possibilities for new friendships are made and a ‘sense’ of community is created when working with like-minded people. Through exposure and intention, we can ALL teach and learn from each other that will inspire new ways of being in the world that shape kinder societies. Being around new people helps us to generate fresh ideas / new perspectives. Words from our daughter: sharing is caring ;)

"What's your food sitch?!"
We are open-minded when it comes to an individual's needs and can buy gluten + crap snacks if preferred. We deeply respect slow food, yet you’ll also often find that we end up with a cheeky little pizza delivery etc! There's loads of comfort / easy food in the cupboard and freezer if no one is up for cooking! We will always provide a full pantry for you complete with natural and organic dry goods, fresh vegetables + many speciality items for gluten, dairy, meat-free. Nut-free is something we cannot accommodate for atm.
“What do I have to bring with me?”
We provide a bed with linens/blankets, towels, food.
Bring clothes + footwear for the weather, good vibes and a head torch.
“Do you offer Internships?”
Have offered internships up to a Masters Level.
If you have an internship as a part of your studies please send us a link and tell us more.
“Do we have to do things in the rain?”
If only sun brings you happiness you might need to volunteer further south OR learn to sing and dance in the rain (and work.) Rain or shine, baby!
“Do I need to be super(wo)man to help here?”
Kind of yes. The property is on a very steep hill and the work currently requires people who are VERY physically fit and able-bodied at this time. :(
“What’s the process for staying with you?”
If we haven’t already invited you, reach out! We will ask some q’s, run a police check, references etc.
"What's the area like?"
The home is within a couple of minutes walking distance to the "Devil’s Punch Bowl. “
The Devil's Punch Bowl is a large natural amphitheatre and beauty spot and is the source of many stories about the area. The rich and diverse landscape has helped to inspire many great artists and authors, and you will also enjoy an invigorating walk/ride all year round...Take advantage of the stunning National Trust commons!
