Keveral Farm, an organic farming community in Cornwall, may be looking for new members in the next few months who are enthusiastic about living in the shared farmhouse. You need to be interested in communal living and take part in all aspects of managing the co-op.
The vacancies will all be in the farmhouse, where in total there are eight bedrooms plus shared kitchen, dining room, lounge, large conservatory and bathroom.
The rent is from Â£50-Â£70 per week depending on the accommodation, and the fuel charge is Â£34 per month for everyone.
You must be happy to live in a shared house - so you need to be easy-going, respectful and responsible.
Occasionally there are shared meals, but people usually cook their own meals.
There is no smoking in the house (about half the group do smoke).
There are currently 9 adult members (aged from 27 to 59, with 4 people in their 30s) and a 17 year old boy, plus some short-term residents (not all in the house).
The joining process to becoming a full member takes at least 8 months.
The joining process consists of:
1. letter (email) of interest
2. initial visits
3. the first 3 months of a 6 month trial period
4. a review after 3 months
5. a review after 5 months (to hopefully resolve any issues that anyone has)
6. after 6 months, the decision on full membership
If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and say something about yourself, why you think you would like to live at Keveral, and what you might do to support yourself financially.
If we invite you to visit, you would stay for a few days as a volunteer.
We are not able to invite everyone who is interested.
