Timber Framing Residency

An experienced timer framer and generally lovely guy Will Greensmith is building a timber frame at the Hidden Mill, permaculture land centre in South West Scotland.
We are looking for a volunteer to assist him on the build, someone with wood working experience who wants to learn the art of timber framing.
This will be a green build from start to finish.
We host land centre volunteers all year who will be around and working in the growing systems but this is a special deticated opportunity in framing.
Ideally starting the end of April and lasting 3 months.

Help with setting up / expanding permaculture project in Cumbria

Hello

We are a house share in Cumbria, just outside the national park. We live in a 900 year old fortified house on ten acres of land.

In the past we have done regular garden days with local school children, and hosted community events, festivals and workshops.

We have taken a step back from doing so many events to concentrate on what the land needs and set up systems. We are not a fully blown organisation so are just trying to do what we can with our resources.

Permaculture Project Internship(s)

We're looking for a person or two people to come and get involved getting our project properly off the ground. Ideally you'll come and stay here for a while (a season, a year or whatever), working with an experienced Permaculturalist (Dip. Perm. Des.) and getting your PDC if you don't already have one; putting in the energy we're short of, learning lots and having the chance to start your own projects.

You'll definitely need a sense of humour and be prepared to start from scratch. If you might be interested then please email us.

Our project is located in West Wales.
