Área: Okanagan Valley, British ColumbiaI am a home designer and builder and this has been my dream to create this place. It is a home but so much more. I have utilized the reclaimed beams from four major buildings to create this special architectural project. It is an amazing gathering space which we plan to hold yoga retreats, and a school of craft specializing in alternative building materials. It is 90% complete and we could use some help making it wonderful. Over the last 5 years Ive had some great people on site who have helped me make it what it is today. We are excited to share this experience with others and enjoy getting to know people from far away. Send us a note if you'd like to come be part of the team.
Área: BretagneWe are an English family operating a gîte complex in Northern Brittany on the Presqu'ile de Crozon in Finistere. We are surrounded by beautiful countryside and stunning beaches (20 beaches within 30 minutes of our home - 10 minutes the closest one) as well as Brest and Quimper interesting cites to explore both 45 minutes away. A little about us: we moved here eight years ago out of love for France and a desire to live life in a Earth-friendly manner, giving back to the planet. We are mother and daughter and son in law, Lesley, Caroline and Dave and four children aged 2 years to 10 years. We have five gîtes which were once a Breton cider farm and outbuildings and strive to offer guests the opportunity to share this beautiful corner of the world for a family-friendly getaway. We have created a large kitchen garden and need help to grow and maintain our fruit and vegetables which include blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, apples, pears, cherries, kiwis, asparagus, plums. We have a miniature shetland pony, miniature ouessant sheep, 2 cockerels and numerous chickens as well as 2 dogs - and welcome help in caring for them. We are looking for help in our busy summer season as well as in the early spring and late autumn when we embark on various projects to enhance Le Rhun - for example enhancing our natural play areas, and managing our woodlands. We can come and meet you in Brest or Quimper - airport or train station or from Roscoff Ferry port.
Área: Southern ProvinceThis project is an international NGO in Zambia. The main venture of the organisation is a boarding school for blind and visually impaired children with and without multiple disabilities in the Southern Province of Zambia, close to Mazabuka town. It is the only school of this kind in whole Zambia. The project is the ambitious project of a young Austrian called Barbara, who is organising the school alone. The construction for the international boarding school has already started in 2009, anyway, it will still take some years, until everything is really complete according to the plans. Anyway, some of the main buildings got ready, so that the school could open in September 2011. At the moment there are around 20 pupils in all age groups, since the youngest boy, Jackson, is just 3 years old, and the oldest student, Nancy, is already 29 years old. The students are coming from all over Zambia and also some kids from South Africa would like to join the school. Almost all the kids have something in common: They did not get any proper education before joining, since there are no proper schools for them in Zambia. The school has, for example, a whole group of kids enrolled who came from a special unit at a public school, who spend over 10 years in this school without getting any single Mathematic lesson, taught by a teacher without teacher certificate. One girl was, for example, one term in a boarding school, where she did not bath the whole term, simply, because nobody assisted her. The girl is blind and also suffering from Cerebral Palsy, so she needs some assistance with some daily tasks. Two of the older girls are coming from villages, where they were only sitting at home before joining the school and some unruly boys were taking advantage of their blindness and raped them, so they have already children on their own.
Área: Midi PyreneesWe are a very relaxed English couple late 40's and early 50's with a great big soft dog, horses and birds. We have recently taken on the renovation of a small farm consisting of 2 houses and 5.5 hectares of land and we are looking for help for a wide range of projects. This is our second renovation project in this area (The Tarn and Aveyron Gorges) as it is a truly beautiful area. The newer of the two houses, built of stone in the 1950's will eventually be rented either as a holiday let or for longer term lets, however the older of the houses is a total renovation and consequently needs everything doing to it, therefore anyone with building experience or a wish to learn on the job would be very welcome. The horses are quite happy to help keep the grass down but we are looking to create gardens for both houses including a vegetable garden(I have so missed having fresh produce this summer)
