Area: Nelson & BaysLatest update: We have just started today (29 May 2014) on a project planting a native corridor in a section of our property and need immediate help with this project. David and Gill have both travelled widely in the past, but have lived here for over 25 years. They both work part time, David works in various roles from marketing, landscaping or driving plus many voluntary hours for community projects from bike trails, footpaths and coastal planting projects. Gill now works as a part time midwife in the local community. Their children have all grown up and left home and they have plenty of space for visitors in their 5 bedroom home. On our 5 acre property we have 2 self contained holiday cottages. Gill and David are now developing a home orchard and needing help during the busy spring and summer season.
Area: Bavaria - FranconiaAt the moment we look for workaway guests who would like to come at the end of September or later. We are on holiday from 27. July until 12. of September and probably cannot answer emails in this period more than 2 or 3 times, so be patient. Thank you! We are a german-czech family with three small kids (7, 4 and 2 years old), living in Franconia - Erlangen on half way between Nuerenberg and Bamberg. We are experienced couchsurfers (both hosts and travelers). We like to host people from all over the world – creative, open, tolerant, patient, listening, funny, crazy, extravagant ... We have more hobbies than time to experience them - arts of all kind - especially music - singing middle age and renaissance polyphony, sewing, knitting, drawing and printing, bookbinding, yoga, tai-chi, cooking , fruit-wine and cheese making, riding bicycle, cross-country skying, walking in the woods ... We will be able to host you for a week, maybe longer. We need help especially on weekends and in the forenoon.

Area: PerugiaWelcome to our Backpacker Hostel!! It is the ideal placement for those volunteers who are looking for a unique work-holiday experience in a friendly, open, and engaging atmosphere. It is also a valuable opportunity to enjoy a glimpse of the authentic Perugian lifestyle through daily interaction with our friends and family. We are located in the countryside but are also very close to the historical center of Perugia (1.50 euro bus ticket to town), so it will be very easy to experience the different aspects of both farm and city life. We offer free bikes, free internet access, free guest kitchen with breakfast, lunch a few days a week, free swimming pool use, and more, including a temporary invitation into our lives. We need help running our farm-hostel which includes: - Guest check-in and assistance, setting up breakfast, looking after the swimming pool, general cleanings, and other various tasks. - Outdoor jobs include gardening, planting and harvesting (garlic, olives, etc) taking care of the farm animals (horses, donkeys, etc), painting and other DIY jobs that vary according to season.
