Type of activity
Gardens, Livestock, Woodland, Alternative Technology, Green-building
8 acres woodland, veg plot, raises beds. Orchard. Accommodation in newly built eco-house. On-going activities - coppicing, gardening, woodland management. Cat. Dog. Pigs in summer. Tony is a film-maker, Pat is a TESOL teacher.

Food mostly organic, home-made bread, hearty soups etc. Jam-making when soft fruit in season. We can accommodate 3 people max at the moment.

We are retired, but very active. Daughter Jess and family live next door, so young company available plus some shared work. Jess is a botanical illustrator, basket weaver and casket maker (for green burials). She and her partner are also keen climbers - a possible free-time activity they could share with woofers.

We live in a very quiet and peaceful place, half an hour from the sea and Bodmin Moor is just up the road. Good internet connection. There is a website for anyone interested in looking at Tony's films and the making of the eco-house -

The house is under 'projects'. There are a number of woofers helping us in the film!
