P/T paid work + volunteering. Live-in opportunity, West Wales

Jan 31, 2024

Part-time scythe packing [paid] for Scythe Cymru alongside part-time volunteering with Dyfed Permaculture Farm Trust CIO.

This opportunity would suit a couple or single person who:

● are interested in learning about scything, hand farming and low impact living
● want to get to know our corner of West Wales
● are available to live and work with us at Dyfed Permaculture Farm for all or most of spring and summer 2024 (April / May – September)


Dyfed Permaculture Farm is a 28 acre holding in West Wales. Most of the management is carried out by hand. By living and working with us you can learn about scything, gardening, permaculture, hand haymaking, hand farming, animal care, low impact living and off grid electricity production.

We are offering
● part-time paid work in our scythe business,
● simple accommodation, some food and lots of knowledge sharing in exchange for your volunteering time
● plenty of free time to get to know our beautiful locality.


The exact terms of this opportunity are negotiable. There could be a couple who stay for the whole season. Or single people starting at different times and overlapping in the busiest time in the middle. Or other possibilities that suit us and the folk who want to come!


For more details on this opportunity and to discuss how we might work together, please get in touch by email initially.
