Description
We are linked number of co-operative projects, centred around 20 acres of land, owned by Common Ground co-operative. We have one family living on the farm, and the rest in households in the village. Our worker's co-op runs a veg box scheme and runs a community vegetable growing project. We keep cattle and sheep for land management and for meat. Summer work includes veg growing, watering, doing veg/box salad deliveries, haymaking, and weeding. Winter work is mainly hedging, ditching, orchard care and infrastructure project. Different members of the co-op work with wwoofers on different days of the week, and we are open generally for volunteers on Fridays. Accommodation is in a small room in the garden of a joint co-op/family house, or camping in the summer - be prepared to interact with children, dogs and to do the washing up! Interests include radical politics, music, cycling, environmental activism, sustainable building, and handicrafts.
