I live with my forgetful elderly mother, who I care for. Tea is served non-stop all day.
We are 4km from Cambridge centre with good transport links including the new Busway (20 mins. to Cambridge rail station and city centre, quicker on bike.)
I am currently undergoing treatment for cancer: I hope to be back to full strength in Autumn 2016, but in the meantime I need helpers who will do housework and cooking in lieu of some of the garden work.
Gardening work includes my allotment plus work parties in the wider allotment site and community orchard, where you will meet many of my friends. You must have at least one season's experience of organic vegetable cultivation: if you don't, then please do not contact me.
Accomodation for 1, 2 or 3 people. Children are welcome, but no dogs please (says Boris the cat).
|We have a Grade II listed building, dating partly from 17th century. It is now divided into 6 apartments, with a total of currently 12 adults and 5 children resident. There are communal spaces in the house, and the gardens are shared and run communally. We try to manage the grounds sustainably, to produce fuelwood, fruit and some people grow vegetables. We avoid the use of chemicals. We have an outdoor swimming pool. Sometimes we ask woofers to help with indoor work such as painting and decorating. |
This summer we are repairing our main roof.
Our house is about 20 minutes walk downhill along footpaths to the historic town of Bradford on Avon. We are well served by trains to London, Salisbury, Weymouth, Bath and Bristol, and for visits to Bath, Bristol, Avebury, Stonehenge and other well known places for sightseeing.

Our farm shop and butchery is open 7 days a week, run by our butcher Adrian, along with 3 other staff. We keep free range chickens, geese, goats, cattle, sheep and pigs. We also have horses, 4 dogs and a cat, and access to wifi! |
We need some general maintenance help around the farm including feeding the livestock, collecting and grading eggs, gardening and general tidying. We want it to be a fun experience for the wwoofer as well as a help to us, so hours and work to suit all.
We will be lambing from the end of March until mid April and would love to have a wwoofer or two who want to get involved in helping with the lambing.
We are very busy in December with Christmas poultry and would welcome anyone interested in coming to help from the end of November to Christmas.

|We have lived here for more than 30 years, renovating it over time. Our house is near the foot of a hill, 3 miles into Wales from the border with England and surrounded by fields which are mostly used for grazing sheep. We both worked in education for many years and developed the woodland and gardens in our spare time. We have now retired so spend more time here but mostly work at a more leisurely pace! |
We have 5 acres of former sheep grazing land, 3 of which we used to create a broad leaved woodland which we manage, and use for fuel for running the wood-burning Rayburn and woodstoves. We are bordered by mixed hedges which we cut and lay and are weaving into denser habitats for wildlife. For 25 years we have cultivated a large organic vegetable garden and bee friendly flower gardens. We have recently planted a small orchard and we also have two polytunnels - one for vegetables and one for propagation and potting up and growing on.

| Our Family has had this house since it was built in 1960 as a holiday home. It is a timber house built on a hill overlooking the Sea to The Isle of Skye and also looks down the Sound of Sleat to Ardnamurchan Point and The Small Isles, |
The House is situated in a large Highland Garden of 5 acres. We are now looking for wwoofers to work in the garden, but also to hopefully stay longer and occasionally "hold the fort". Help out with house-keeping, cooking, change-overs at The Green House, (a little Luxury Cabin in the south end of the Garden). and help look after 2 cats & a dog.

We have 2 ponies 3 geese 5 ducks about 40 hens and 2 dogs. We have a poly tunnel for vegetable growing, and other patches of garden for fruit and flowers.
We need help for the general range of activities and it would be really good if the WWOOFER has some basic carpentry skills.
We're a fairly old couple (seventies) but very fit. My husband plays league cricket in the summer and I take the dogs for strenuous walks although not as strenuous as digging the garden and carrying water.
We are vegetarians but eat fish and at this time of year eat a lot from what we grow although the veg season has barely started.
I'm very interested in 'companion planting' and am open to all ethically acceptable ideas.
We have a neighbour 2 miles nearer civilisation and she would be keen to share you! She is an organic gardener and her entire set up is more organised than ours.
|Ex-wwoof ourselves, we are a young Dutch couple with two cats and 5 chickens trying to be self-sufficient. We have a small piece of land where we grow fruit and vegetables. |
We're located in Central Scotland, but still pretty isolated and lovely views all around. The nearest public transport is 5 miles away, so we will pick you up. Please bring a warm jumper, because it can be very windy at times!
We need help maintaining the vegetable beds and transforming the back garden. We make our own bread, wine, beer and jam from our own produce or picked from the wild. Any recipe ideas are more than welcome!
On your days off you could go to Edinburgh and Glasgow or you can go hill walking, mountain biking or just relaxing.
Accommodation is a double bed in our spare bedroom, so it would suit either a couple or one wwoof-er. We are not vegetarians, but we can provide vegetarian/vegan/glutenfree meals. We prefer non-smokers. Minimum age 20.

My background is in Soil Science and I have been growing organically for over 25 years, and understand the scientific basis of organic methods. Recycling plant nutrients is central to this and I make and use a variety of composts including worm compost, comfrey liquid, leaf mould etc and raise all plants with my own potting compost (no peat) from this recycling process.

We have an acre of garden and woodland with seasonal streams , lawn and large flower beds.
We have been here 7 years and have transformed our garden. We have reclaimed the vegetable/fruit garden, created a herb garden, generate our own compost, and removed shrubs and bushes which were in the wrong place. We have also planted a small orchard. We try to strike a balance between keeping things under control and minimum interference. We are keen to apply organic principles whilst recycling what we don't need.
The accomodation is a self-contained studio flat attached to the main house with wonderful views over the Moray Firth and surrounding farmland. The village is a 10 minute walk downhill from the house and the frequent bus service to Inverness takes 20 minutes.

The orchard is being extended and there is a small 'soft fruit' growing area. We are looking at planting willow and hazel coppice for wood burning. The house is eco friendly -ground source heat pump, solar panels etc and we aim to develop the outbuildings for retreats. We have worked closely with the council's Biodiversity team to plant native hedgerow and support our wildlife pond. We have hosted wwoofers for 4 years. 2016 we need help clearing overgrown areas, extending the peace garden, mowing, maintaining and improving the kitchen garden, producing natural fertilisers, wildflowers and flora. We have beehives here. The location is superbly positioned, accessible but nice and quiet and suits woofers who can organise their own time and who want to walk, cycle, explore the area. ||View |
|In the past the flat, well-drained land here provided near-enough-organic vegetables, eggs and meat for four families, but it's lain uncultivated in recent years. I've just arrived, with no farming experience and limited physical mobility, and I'd love to see this place returned to its former glory. I'm keen to use organic, no-dig and permaculture methods, and have lots of ideas including reestablishing ponds, accessing renewable energy sources and introducing an area of forest garden. There are three spare bedrooms here (one very small) and ample camping space. ||View |
