Opportunities within the UK

Erw Fach, Capel Cynon, Ffostrasol, Ceredigion

I own 3.74 hectares of land at Capel Cynon, Ceredigion, and have
recently begun preparations to use it for permaculture, including
making it available for grazing at the right times each year. I am not
expert in the relevant matters, and am nearing 80 years old. I
therefore need enlightened help from totally honest people, who would
be granted the full profits from their activity in getting
permaculture going. As I am a pensioner the government is bound by its
own laws to keep me alive, so I do not need to profit from my own land

Willow art/ coppice crafts

I am looking for someone to help me with my work a couple of days a week.I know I can't legally positively discriminate, but I am happy to help some young person with a practical bent who may be an ASD sufferer (or have some disability), simply because I suffer from ASD and I know that work opportunities can be more limited. But I am open to able bodied neurotypical enquirers also (!). The person would need to live locally to me in the North East.

Video editor needed

The team behind the new course ‘Permaculture for Development Workers’ seeks a volunteer with basic video editing skills to offer a quick bit of support.

We have a few short video clips from last year’s course that require editing so that they can be used for course promotion.

We would also like our existing video and photo content edited into a simple 1-5 minute video about the course.

Could you help? If so, please contact Georgina-Kate Adams at georgina.kate.adams@gmail.com

Abundant Earth Intern Position

Here at Abundant Earth we are now looking for our next volunteer Intern. This is an exciting opportunity and only comes up once in a blue moon.

As Ali, our outgoing Intern recently said “the experience has been enriching, full of practical learning and lots of fun. It has been inspiring and empowering with plenty of meaningful interactions”. Ali is now moving on (but staying with us) to join our new Green Incubator programme to start her own green business. (More about that other exciting development in future posts)
