The work during the winter months is a little more physically challenging due to the weather and the toll this takes on the land so please take this into consideration when applying.
|Preview host||We own a large old house near Newton Stewart, surrounded by semi-natural woodland and a large garden, which we are trying to improve all the time. Work includes helping us to maintain our woodland, which can be anywhere on the estate, and often involves cutting down trees and having bonfires, this is best done in winter; also some garden work, tree planting, painting, and making bread.

|Preview host||We are a family of 4 who live in a rural community in the Highlands of Scotland. We bought a run down croft 2 years ago and have multiple projects on the go! We have two children (4 years and 6 months) and two dogs. We keep goats for milk and have an acre of Tea which we recently planted and we have great plans to plant trees, hedges and lay pathways to make the Tea Garden productive and beautiful! There is a huge amount to do to get the place running properly. We would like to use permaculture techniques where possible. The area is very beautiful, folk are friendly and it is very peaceful. |
We are looking for families or couples, ideally with their own van, to come and help out on the croft for 4 hours a day 5 days a week. We would be very flexible with hours especially if you have children. Its pretty chilled out, lots of easy vege garden tasks and barrowing compost and gravel around aswell as bigger projects to get stuck into.
|Preview host||Hello, we're looking to bring this Outer Hebridean croft back to life, with a long term vision of helping people who are suffering with trauma. But first we'll need to get the croft up and running so that it can become self supporting. The croft is fairly large and is at the moment, also quite barren. It's located in a remote, beautiful and peaceful area on the small island of Great Bernera on the West coast of the Isle of Lewis. |
We'd be grateful for people to help us rebuild the dry stone walls on the croft, to build paths, chicken huts and animal shelters and to begin to plant shelter breaks and trees. And there may be other tasks such as landscape gardening, helping to rebuild the croft house, erecting fencing
If you would like to experience this quiet part of the world and give a hand to share the many laboring jobs that need doing, then please get in touch.
Please see extended description for more info. skills required, accommodation details, local community etc.

I am trying to use the manure produced by the birds for a large vegetable and fruit garden...to be honest the results here have been a bit mixed, unused parts of the vegetables are fed back to the hens.
There is a large polytunnel, about half is used all year by the birds, the other half is used by growing hens overwinter and for tender vegetables over the summer, this gives a weed free environment.
I have a small number of breeding sheep, mainly jacob crosses with a gray faced dartmoor tup.
There is a pleasant local pub about a mile away. I'm happy to give lifts into the nearest village, Alford.

|Preview host||We only offer short stays of 7 to 10 days. We prefer wwoofers who have a good conversational level of English and will prioritise those who are interested in Permaculture and self reliance. |
We are a family of three and a dog living by the sea in the east of England, trying to be as self sufficient as possible without being fanatical about it. We structure our garden on organic, Permaculture principles, recycling our rainwater and grey water through a reed bed. Our home uses solar energy and wood for cooking, space and water heating and we generate solar electricity. We grow and eat our own vegetables, fruit, eggs and honey. We are creating this ourselves (DIY) mostly from recycled materials.
We have a piece of ancient woodland and some of our time is spent there managing the wood; logging, planting trees and clearing bracken and brambles. We are a Permaculture Land Learning Center so we are keen to have visitors who are interested in Permaculture. We are now the proud owners of an electric car (Citroen C1 Ev'iE)
|Preview host||We have a one acre site which is being developed using organic and permaculture methods. We keep free range chickens and ducks. We have fruit trees, soft fruit, edible perennials & grow a lot of vegetables. Surplus veg and fruit are made into preserves, low sugar 'jams', juice, wines, dried, stored or frozen. The site is used to teach permaculture and edible landscaping with courses being run on the property from time to time and as such is a centre for education. However, most of the time the garden is not being used for classes and so most of the time wwoofers will be working alone or with one or more wwoofers. There is a huge variety of tasks at any time of year – sowing, planting, weeding, harvesting. sheet mulching, chickens, ducks etc. Inexperience with the tasks is not a problem as we have a great deal of experience but the willingness to work hard and be physically fit is essential. We are close to Cardiff centre and other attractions - Gower, Brecon. Pls look at extended description before applying. |
|Preview host||Looking for friendly, honest, hardworking and sense of humour person to help with gardening – weeding, planting, plus help on the allotment. Also pointing work to stone walls approx 2m high. Other tasks - painting windows, help in the house etc, but no task is something that I can't do - I will only ask for work that I can do, but have no time to do myself! The variety of work to do is weather dependent and, so there is no definite routine to the day other than meals! |
Sometimes my husband needs help on the allotment at the weekends or if he has a particular project. Basically it would help if you were flexible with your time. There is plenty of entertainment locally as well as in town to which to explore. We live by the sea and only 4 miles from the centre of Edinburgh.
On the language front - I only speak very basic foreign languages, but have plenty of dictionaries and sign language! Please note that I don't take WWOOFers in January, August, November and December.
|Preview host||We are an off grid small holding and part of the Ecological Land Co-ops first site. We are living in temporary accommodation (static caravans) while we establish our small holding . We grow medicinal and culinary herbs,and food for ourselves. Helen is a medical herbalist and makes her own medicines. We have a range of different things we need help with and are especially looking for wwoofers with growing experience and skills. We would also welcome a long term wwoofer or pair of wwoofers to stay for the whole growing season. |
|Preview host||We live in a beautiful part of North Yorkshire close to the Yorkshire Dales. Here we sow and grow cut flowers in our garden and our walled garden nearby. At the moment we do everything ourselves, keep things natural and chemical free and love our jobs. We sell to a few local florists, Farmer's markets and through local deliveries. Most of our work is for weddings and we offer a budget Pick Your Own service straight from our garden. Now in our fifth year of growing we are a small operation but slowly expanding and never have enough hours in the garden. |
About us...Barney is a gardener and Clarey was a teacher and now florist. We are both very relaxed, fun and fair and happily welcome you to come and stay in our family. Guests have their own corner of the house with a door to shut at the end of the day and give some privacy. We are really looking forward to meeting new people through the WWOOF scheme and having some help in the garden.
