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)

Live/work exchange at eco-smallholding in Wales

We are an extended family (a couple - Naomi and Pip, 2 small children - Elma and Vita and - Michelle- a grandmother!) living on an eco-smallholding by the sea in the wild west of Wales (SA44 6QG). We have just over 9 acres of land, including organic certified pasture where sheep graze, woodland, a small orchard and a large polytunnel and outside food growing area, where we also keep chickens. We grow as much food as we can for ourselves, always according to organic growing principles, and sell any excess fruit, vegetables and eggs to friends and local cafes.

Intern wanted in north west Wales

Lovely, smiling, self-starting, veg growing intern wanted for a summer outside between the mountains and sea in north west Wales.

We are a small, family run, permaculture inspired farm. We produce meat, milk, eggs and veg but all on a small and human scale and in a regenerative way.

Green up your community with free trees from Octopus Energy

Do you have community space in need of some trees? We're planting 10,000 native saplings across the UK, free, to draw attention to the air pollution that kills 40,000 Brits every year.

For every new tree in the ground, 2 kg of carbon dioxide is saved from polluting the atmosphere.

We're planting 10,000 trees.

That'll save the UK eight tonnes of carbon dioxide per year, create homes for hundreds of insects and critters, and trap harmful particulate matter like nitrogen dioxide.
