Would you like an ocasional break from city life? Do you desperately need a change of routine, some physical excercise or a breath of fresh air? Are you stressed in your city office or a student struggling to meet deadlines for your studies? Seeking a language exchange? Perhaps you would like to learn how to grow or you enjoy the excitement of a pre-dawn harvest by torchlight and the buzz and banter over a camp fire as dusk descends.

A day or more on our farm is the solution!

Farm Camping (click for full sized image) Here is Sussex, the sunny heart of England, we can offer you work for a day or two, for a week or two, or longer. There is a big range of work you can help with, from seed-sowing to transplanting, weeding to harvesting and everything in between. Who knows, if you enjoy working with us as a farm volunteer you may join the paid staff team and share the risks and rewards as well as pursuing your own dreams.

In our organisation we value honesty, enthusiasm and hard work. Experience is not a requirement.

For volunteers we can offer you vegetables to take home, healthy meals cooked in our kitchen, help for Japanese and other nationalities to learn English and first class accommodation in a room of your own.
