About the workproject

We need 4 volunteers

We are a small farm, just 9 acres trying to follow in the footsteps of amazing market gardeners before us. Biodiversity, conservation and sustable living are high priorities of ours. We need help on the farm to keep daily jobs going like feeding animals etc, and extra hands to complete interesting new projects like a cob pizza oven and new education programme. We have chickens, pig, horses and a dog and cat. The main work is in the garden, growing using organic, no dig and permaculture principles.

We require long term volunteers to have a conversational level of proficiency in English as many tasks require an understanding of detailed instructions
