Area: MunsterMy name is Holly and I run the garden centre with my dad Adrian and will be hosting workawayers from now on. I live in an old Irish farmhouse with my 2 children (aged 7 and 8), a dog and 2 cats in Clonakilty, Co Cork. I am originally from the UK. We are part of quite a large family so there are always people in and out of the place! We both enjoy travel, and meeting people from all over the world. I run a garden centre with my dad Adrian. We grow most of our own plants to sell, either at home or at the garden centre. We try and grow everything as organically as possible. I am also in the process of starting a large veggy garden, and renovating my home.

Area: ScotlandHi, we are a small family run farm in the beautiful Highlands of Scotland. We have a few animals, we produce hay and haylage in the summer months and grow around 100 varieties of salad on the farm which we supply to top chefs, celebrity chefs and high quality delicatessens. We manufacture our own range of dressings on the farm, which we sell to delis and restaurants. All our products are award winning, and our salad is Overall Product of the Year 2011 for the whole of Scotland. This is an opportunity for someone to learn about growing and producing food - from seed to plate! We have 50 acres, sea views, mountain views and are adjacent to woodland. We have a small caravan site for 5 touring caravans, wildlife ponds, ponies, ducks, sheep, dogs. Please note that it is a very busy place, as owners, we have very little time off for ourselves, especially during the spring and summer months.

Area: KarnatakaEvery child has the right to grow up in a safe environment. Unfortunately in India that's not always the case, especially when one is disabled. Many children who are disabled in India end up on the streets and they have to beg for money to survive. That’s why we build our children's home, to make a difference. We are a home for children who are differently abled India. The foundation has just moved to a new place and now there is place for 25 children. At the moment there are 18 children, but this can change any day, as more people learn from the existence, more children are applying. The new place, is very green, has a beautiful garden where the kids can play, they have their own bed, there is enough space for different teaching areas and the kids can enjoy their life like any other child. The children follow a daily schedule, which includes, teaching ( very basic), music, yoga, crafts and playing. We try to implement TEACCH, which is a method especially for children who are autistic and differently abled. And the children get speech and physiotherapy, we try to give them the best education possible, so if you have any experience it would be wonderful to have you and share your knowledge with us and the children. When the children's home was still run by an Indian headmaster in from 2001 until 2007, the children suffered a lot, they were beaten and abused daily. But since 6 years Shobha and Maartje from the Netherlands took over and are managing the children's home in a different way. The children are happy and will win a place in your heart for sure. They make you smile every minute and forget all your trouble. They will love you like their own sister or brother. Working with these kind of children gives you happiness inside. But it’s hard work and because it takes time to know the children, we advise you to stay at least 2 months and having experience with differently abled children or adults will help you and us a lot.
