Working Holidays


We welcome many volunteers throughout the year to assist with tending to our gardens, general maintenance and seasonal jobs. We have always developed in sustainable ways, and the feeling of the place allows visitors to feel at home here. We welcome volunteers from all walks of life but are especially interested to hear from people skilled in gardening, permaculture, maintenance and eco building. We’re also interested to hear from anyone with teaching qualifications to assist with the running of courses at the centre.

We generally accommodate working visitors in our artist’s studio, Amsterdam room or yurt. Some home cooked meals are provided along with food for preparation in our straw-bale kitchen.

We ask for five hours help per day, five days a week, and visitors are able to practice English, meet interesting people, learn more about sustainability and spend time discovering the beautiful county of Powys.

Please get in touch regarding visits and keep an eye on our blog for details on upcoming work weekends.
