Apple picking at Othona

If you’ve never tried one of these weeks you may not realise how special they are. Ideal for practical people who like to lend a hand and do something worthwhile.

Sharing jobs round the house and grounds we all get a real sense of achievement and camaraderie – working hard (up to 6 hours a day) but enjoying ourselves too with plenty of laughs and diversions.

We aim to vary the jobs to suit all abilities, both indoors and outdoors. Reasonable levels of fitness and energy, however, are recommended.

"What a unique community Othona is! Hard work and terrific fun." G.A.
