Heartwood is an old dairy farm with 35 acres of land: woods, pasture, wetland, streams, orchards and gardens. We have a pony that pulls a cart and helps with woodland management. There are two goats providing milk, four hens, twelve ducks and four cats. In the main house we share facilities and enjoy five vegetarian communal meals a week. Some of our members raise and eat their own animals (pigs and ducks) Our practice of permaculture and sustainability includes maintaining sustainable relationships with each other as well as with the land we live on, we use Non Violent Communication and consensus decision making, this forms the basis of our community. We are looking for short term volunteers to help with vegetable gardening, landscaping a garden, maintenance and diy. We are open to visitors on a wwoof basis (bed and board in exchange for 4 -6 hours work a day). We don’t take wwoofers over Christmas and New Year. Please note that although we will try to work alongside you we may not always be able to and you will spend some of your stay working alone. Please let us know of any additional needs or medication you are taking.
