Description
We have a large vegetable plot on a dairy farm (wildlife friendly but not organic) in the Blackmore Vale in Dorset. The plot was formerly part of an organic market garden run by my partner and myself and has two polytunnels, one of which we 'landshare' with two local families. We need help maintaining, and in places rescuing, the plot and becoming more self-sufficient. Hours are flexible and helpers will work alone as well as with us. We have a barn dance at the end of the summer which we appreciate having some extra help with. The date for this year's dance is 1st September and we need help with preparations during the week before this. We have two children aged 9 and 14 who go to school. Accommodation is in a static caravan with a kitchen for self-catering, though there will be shared meals. The farm is 1 mile from the village which has a pub. Our nearest towns are Sherborne, Sturminster Newton, Dorchester, Yeovil and Blandford Forum.
