Area: South AustraliaWe live between Adelaide and Melbourne in what was once a desert. Now it is green, and much has been learnt about farming in this unique land of australia! Come and learn a little :) We love to share life with you. Be ready to jump on the ute, or tractor, or on the motorbike to see a little different side of Australia. Our food is simple, but certainly enough. We share what we have. Your challenge is to gain the trust of mum and dad (and understand their 'australian - and BE understood!!) so that they have a day off while you are here!! It will be great to have you. Come for a week, with a view to 2.
Area: BrindisiIt's olive picking time and the Peace Garden really needs olive pickers--and a housesitter after that! The New Time Peace Garden in southern Italy is located in Puglia, the heel of the Italian boot fronting the Ionian Sea and Greece. Common space is the large kitchen/dining area, pantry, washroom/ storeroom, bathroom. The Peace Garden--the first in Europe-- covers 2.4 hectares of biologically cultivated olives, cherries, walnuts, figs, pears, apples, almonds; several large garden areas for the vegetables; 2 vineyards. The Garden is where the Law of Time, discovered by Prof. José Arguelles, is applied in practical ways, as a means of re-synchronizing the brain to natural cycles as well as a totally new social/organizational model; much attention is given to healing techniques (music therapy with crystal bowls, craniosacral balancing, chromopuncture, etc.), art, preparation for the upcoming quantum leap in 2013 and interpersonal dynamics as evolutionary growth processes.

Area: Alberta/ManitobaOur family lives in the beautiful town of Olds, Alberta. It is almost 1 hour north of Calgary. Our family at home now consists of Myself, Rosemary, my husband Gerald and our children, Chelsea (18), Spencer (16)and Bryce (14). We have 3 other grown children who are not living at home. From September until June I, Rosemary, operate an Organic and Natural Store and Food Buying Club in our home. We need someone to help with the store, yard work and/or cooking/housework. The Rocky Mountains are just over an hour away and the skiing is lovely there. For July and August, we travel to the province of Manitoba where we have a farm. We will need help on the farm with haying, grain production, animal care, gardening and or cooking and cleaning. We like to go to a beach that is close by in the summer to cool off and relax after our days's work or on the weekends.
Area: EnglandI live in a small cottage in Dorset, a beautiful county in the south west of England. As I'm moving from this place, I need someone who can help me with painting and cleaning the new house in Yeovil. Gardening skills will be a big help as well. I have with me one person who stays with me and is a business partner and another person who is a workawayer here already so the new people will go into the new house to help me sort it out. Long or short stay is very welcome :) Fairly good english would be helpful. Weekends I am away from the cottage so you would have it to yourself. There is everything you need in Yeovil just steps from the new house such as pubs, cinema, shopping, gym and public transportation. I'm looking forward to sharing life experience with you. We are fun and easy going people, and looking for some one to work with us as a real team! Rachel
