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 three 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 few chickens and an orchard and we have a barn dance at the end of summer. The date for this year's dance is 13th September and we need help in the week or two before this. We have two children (5&10) and tend to go to bed early so would suit someone who can amuse themselves. 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 friendly pub. Our nearest towns are Sherborne, Sturminster Newton, Dorchester, Yeovil and Blandford Forum.
