Wwoofing at Trill
We benefit greatly from the enthusiasm and fresh ideas volunteers bring to our farming practice. Most of our longer-term volunteers come through wwoof (world wide opportunities on organic farms). This is a fantastic scheme that enables people from all over the world to work in exchange for room and board on organic farms – learning lots as they go.
We look for volunteers who can spend 3 months with us, working seven hours a days, five days a week in return for a room and rather delicious food! The accommodation is basic but beautiful – an insulated wooden cabin with a lounge & kitchen, shower and toilet facilities are in a separate building close by. We have three twin rooms that are shared with someone of the same sex.
The work at Trill varies with the season, and can be hard and muddy at times! We are always looking for independent motivated people with farming, handicraft and DIY skills. The work is usually a mixture of helping in the vegetable garden – digging, weeding, sowing, pruning, harvesting etc, in the kitchen – preparing meals, wild harvesting and preserving, and help around the farm and household – with the animals, crops, fencing, building, hedging, tree work, chopping wood and so on. We also require help running some evening events.
At the moment we don't take volunteers with children or dogs.
Weekly Wednesday Herb Garden Volunteering
We always need help in our Herb Garden, and have a weekly volunteer day on a Wednesday for locals who would like to get involved. We do our best to use your skills and aim to help you learn along the way.
We grow a range of herbs for teas and our beauty products. A typical day might involve weeding, sowing, mulching, harvesting, drying & processing or wild harvesting.
Wednesday volunteers join us for Wednesday Farm Lunches - a delicious taste of Trill.
If you are interested in helping out in some way, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us on 01297 631113.
"I really enjoyed my time at Trill... The people I met... both those living there and other WWOOFers were so nice and welcoming, they made the experience so worthwhile and memorable. The living arangements were great, what I also really liked was the food we had. It was awesome eating produce grown right at Trill and enjoying it with people who really appreciated it. I also picked up a few skills I didn't have before hand, such as experience in a veg garden, driving an ATV, and making jam." Annabel 2011
