We want positive can-do people to join our co-housing project:

We are a self-managing project, so we seek people who are happy to help with the general running of the community. In particular we would find it useful, but not essential, if you have any of the following skills:

Gardening, finance, maintenance, computing and administration skills, among others.

Would you like to come and contribute to our project?

Some of our members meditate regularly, some do yoga, and some do neither. We are also open to other forms of self-awareness and well-being.

If you feel you are interested then please contact us.

Sign up to our newsletter at the bottom of the page to get updates when we have vacancies and news about the community. Also check this page regularly.
