|Preview host||We have an 11 acre upland holding, surrounded by fields and woodland on the edge of the wild moorlands of the ancient Cambrian Mountains. |
We have been gardening organically here for over 35 years, providing ourselves with most of the vegetables and fruit we need. We make our own wine and beer and jam and bake our own bread.

|Preview host||The smallholding is run by Drew, an author, and Wayne, a textiles teacher. We keep pedigree prize-winning alpacas, which we breed selectively for improved fleece quality. The fleece is processed on site in our purpose-built workshop (a converted shipping container), in which we host spinning/felting/craft workshops. Alpaca trekking with the public provides a further income stream. We are also hoping to build on the use of our animals in therapy on and off site. |
An area of sustainable woodland provides firewood and timber for building.
A glamping site (shepherds huts, yurt, log cabin) is being developed for next year.
Our rainwater harvesting system is due to be extended to accommodate washing larger quantities of fleece in the future..
We have recently planted sustainable long-term pasture with underlying herbs, which is scheduled to be fenced in 2018 to provide further alpaca paddocks.
We also have a garden producing fruit & vegetables.

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.

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.

I have a yurt and a round house and a caravan in the field with basic facilities. Currently I live in the roundhouse myself, and have compost toilets and outdoor shower. I use a caravan as kitchen in the summer and my workshop doubles up as kitchen in the winter. I need help with the plants, which I sell in pots at Stroud Farmers Market and also need help creating the garden. There would also be an opportunity to learn about making the products. I also have a small wood which I intend to work in this summer. Working here is an opportunity to learn about the uses of the herbs, and to explore the Cotswolds. |

|Preview host||Welcome to our medicinal tree and shrub project in North Devon. We are seeking WWOOFers who would like to spend up to one week with us, in late spring or autumn. Camping is possible or we can provide accommodation in a caravan at the Holt Wood site, while our home is near Exeter. As part of the permaculture LAND network, we are developing our 2.5 acre site as a forest garden providing sustainable harvests of food, fuel and medicinal products. The site was replanted in 2004 in a permaculture-based design with numerous native and introduced medicinal trees and shrubs. In recent years, we have improved the site with addition of water storage, compost toilet, fruit orchard etc., and started harvesting fruits, nuts, medicinal herbs and other products. You need to be fit to carry out a variety of garden/woodland work, and if you are interested there are opportunities for learning about medicinal herbs. |
|Preview host||We are able to take WWOOFers during July and August... accommodation in caravan or tent. |
Our place was originally 3 horse grazing fields now being turned into a wood, wild flower meadow, with a focus on permaculture type gardening and vegetable production. The overall aim is to make an environment that makes wildlife needs and rights as important (even more) as human needs and rights... in some places with the wildlife needs and rights overriding human needs and rights. I have so far planted about 750 hedgerow plants, and 600 trees and shrubs.
We are situated on the edge of Salisbury Plain and have wonderful views of it. We also have a fire pit and in the summer often have barbecues and get togethers around the fire in the evenings.
|Preview host||We (Karen and Jules) and Spike the dog have a small woodland close to Hastings East Sussex |
We had our first summer of woofing in 2016 which we really enjoyed. Jobs for 2018 include for wild gardening,vegetable gardening, eco building or help with cooking, or a song.(Jules loves to play his saxophone so any musical volunteers who enjoy jamming by the camp fire would be very welcome).
We have some old farm outbuildings which eventually we would like to make habitable for volunteers, but currently the accommodation is comfortable tents. Food wise I am vegetarian but very tolerant of those who eat meat so you would'nt have to hide the bacon cravings, I'm also happy to cook vegan/gluten free. We would like people to have a chance to enjoy their surroundings as well as helping out. We are currently Looking for volunteers with carpentry skills/plumbing/electrical skills or fix up barns. I am away till the 14th of April so will respond to your emails on my retun
|Preview host||We are a couple with two teenage children with a 22 acre croft which we are in process of restoring, having been neglected and abused for a long time. We have about 7 acres of ancient seminatural woodland and plan to extend this to fully half of the croft. We plan to cultivate an area for vegetables and fruit trees. From scratch this will involve a lot of spade work, construction of polytunnel, beds etc etc. We have chickens and horses. Other priorities are improvement of drainage of the croft with upgrading of the very basic 'relief' drainage ditches I have dug by hand. Paths and a pond are also required. There will be ongoing work needed with trees, hedging and general green landscaping. |
