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: AndinaSmall environmental NGO, focused on andean ecosystems. The volunteer program is a photography project in the andean region of Sugamuxi. The Sugamuxi province is in the heart of the east andean Colombian state called Boyacá. It has 13 towns (which include the city of Sogamoso, its capital), most of them beautiful from any viewer; and has a marvelous scenery and natural spots that are quite unique in the country (even in the world), like the 'páramo' ecosystems or the biggest lake of the country (Lake Tota) -2nd highest of South America for its size (3,015 meters high)-. This region is definitely worth visiting, so volunteering here as a photographer for the project can be seen as a chance for an easy and low-cost tourist opportunity, rather than a work-like experience... meaning 'cost' that one the volunteer must cope such as, transporting costs inside the region or some guides where needed, and 2 meals daily (breakfast appart, because B&B in a dorm is included for the volunteering interchange).

Area: Bikaner / Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, IndiaMy name is Yogi. I offer a short- or long-term volunteers at my properties in beautiful Rajasthan in India, namely the in Bikaner and the in the Thar Desert, near Bikaner & Jaisalmer. Both places are fully run by locals. Our place in Bikaner is situated in a quiet, residential neighborhood and is only a short drive away from many interesting places worth to visit & our resort & farm in Desert is 31 km from Bikaner City , such as the famous Junagarh Fort (Red Fort) of Bikaner, the Karni Mata temple at Deshnoke (Temple of Rats, so beware of many crawling creatures near your feet!), the Bikaner spice market or the camel research center, where you can see hundreds of camels and taste camel milk. Further more, at both places you can enjoy the Thar Desert and camel safaris with our company with discounts to all work away members.. You will have enough free time to visit and experience all these, and more!I would love to find other people to travel with as travel compenions! Beside these places, we also manage a organization that is working in local villages, where we contribute to youth education and basic health and hygiene. We are also supporting other causes, helping with the training of various skills needed to earn a living and also with teaching English to poor students. Our guesthouse/hotel and desert resort are important funding resources for many of these projects. For many years, we have been connected with tourism and social work and are now trying to merge them both. As we love sharing our culture and traditions with our guests and volunteers, we make an effort to make sure that the people coming to work or travel here in India get a special and peaceful environment. In doing so, we want to create a place where people can learn and exchange cultural and work experiences and help each other, a place where new ideas can grow into activities and self-sustained business. We want this place to grow space-wise and people-wise, like a network. In the last few months, we have hosted many volunteers from all over the world. Many travelers, young artists and other people who wanted to evolve have stayed at our place and have made many useful contributions, each in their own way, for the growth of our camel safari /guest house etc . I would also be happy to travel with you to the many cities and attractions across india & the Thar Desert such as Pushkar, Mandawa, Johdpur, Jaipur ad Jaiselmer which are all within reasonable distance of Bikaner. To reach us, Bikaner is well connected by rail and bus to Delhi, Mumbai, Jaipur, Deshnok and most of the main towns and cities. We are more than happy to assist you with your travel plans for reaching us, just let us know where you are coming from and we will provide you with the information that you need.
Area: The high countryside of Northern Tuscany offers a wonderful scenary all year round and farouble climatic condition for outdoor living from late April to mid-October. The area has a healthy climate, especially at the height of summer, when a sultry heat hangs over the plain. It offers a variety of tracks to hikers, most maintained by the Italian Alpine Club. It is well-known for a local sheep breed: close encounters with flocks of sheep are very common near the house. Also with horses, goats and cows. Snowfalls start generally in December and can continue until late March, though sporadically. Greenness reaches the tops, at 1.600m above sea level, in the second half of May.N.B. Only enquiries from single travelers are considered. Hi. My name is Paolo. I'm a former musician (classical piano and baryton). After spending many years in a big city, I live now a back-to-nature life with my dog Tex in the mild, green mountains of northern Tuscany (they rather look like high hills), 25km / 15 miles away from the Mediterranean Sea. The house stands on a ridge, 1.200m above sea level, surrounded by pastures and woods as far as the eye can see. The sea is visible in the distance by clear days. I'm a manager and host, with a seven-year experience in hosting students and low-budget travelers from four continents and fifteen different countries, thanks to workaway.info and other platforms. I'd be glad to welcome you and make you feel at home.
