Área: upper-austria/innviertelhi, i am bettina, and I have turned my back to vienna many years ago, to fulfill my dream. we (anna 23, bettina 51, daniel 23) awakened an old farmhouse with ecological and historical materials & artistic flair into life. it has become through the years a small but very fine seminarcentre for consciousness development , culinary, musical and craft creativity . the estate is located on a hill, surrounded by fields, meadows and a forest. it is beautiful, but there is always "a lot to do". the large garden seduced again and again to remodel . - driftwoodfence , grazing braids , natural stone walls, mosaics, Benjes, flowers, shrubs, trees, - they all want to be cherished. a large workshop invites you to experiment - we are open in new ideas . a studio has to be built. you can cook with me, collect or grow(wild)herbs. glaze walls, build objects, lawn mowing, pick up fruits, cut wood, help in the kitchen. after a hard day's work we will play together music , talk, explore the area, or whatever. we look forward to active help in house, yard & garden . hallo, ich bin bettina und habe wien vor vielen jahren den rücken gekehrt, um mir einen traum zu erfüllen. aus einem alten innviertler dreiseithof, den wir (anna 23, bettina 51 und daniel 23) ökolog./künstlerisch renoviert haben, ist im laufe der jahre ein kleines, aber sehr feines seminarhaus geworden. ein zentrum für bewußtseinsentwicklung, kulinarische, musikalische und handwerkliche kreativität. der hof liegt auf einem hügel, umgeben von wiesen & feldern. hier ist es wunderschön, doch es gibt immer "a lot to do". der große garten verführt immer wieder zum umgestalten. - schwemmholzzäune, weidengeflechte, natursteinmauern, mosaike, benjeshecken, blumen, sträucher, bäume, - wollen gehegt und gepflegt werden. eine große werkstatt lädt zum experimentieren ein, - wir sind offen für neue ideen. ein atelier aus holz will gebaut werden. ihr könnt mit mir kochen, (wild)kräuter anbauen bzw. sammeln. aber auch wände lasieren, objekte bauen, rasen mähen, obst klauben, holz schneiden, in der küche helfen. nach getaner arbeit werden wir gemeinsam musizieren, tratschen, die gegend erkunden, oder was auch immer. wir freuen uns über tatkräftige mithilfe in haus, hof & garten.
Área: EnglandMy name is Laura and my family and I live in a rural small holding between the historic towns of Falmouth and Helston on the beautiful west coast of Cornwall. Our five bedroom, three bathroom house stands in its own grounds with farms either side of us. Some of our leisure time is spent gig rowing on the waters of the Helford River. Our children are involved in our local surf lifesaving club and enjoy surfing on the south coast. We very much enjoy the outdoor lifestyle Cornwall has to offer and have lived here for the past 17 years renovating our farmhouse, but still have much to do. We have chickens year round, as well as pigs at certain times of the year. Our local village Constantine has a very active community arts centre, where I often volunteer. James spends part of every week working elsewhere in the UK or in Europe. I work for the NHS in Childrens' Community Services. We have three teenagers, one of which is away at University. As a family we're all willing to improve on our languages but do only speak English fluently.
Área: EnglandStarting to realise i just cannot do the amount i want to be doing ..... well not without a little help :-/ When work is available i am an IT professional but also a commercial pilot (which is just for fun - not professional) and occasionally build motorcycles. I won lots of races back in the day .... I am in the middle of doing some landscaping and want to replace a building i have (a Nissen Shed) so i need all sorts of help: Building (brick laying would be great - but not essential); Cooking and Shopping occasionally might be nice; Gardening is the big help i need. I am going to plant all along the border of a one acre plot with some static caravans in. My aim is to create a lovely 'Christian Respite' area for people to come and rest or recuperate after a bad or difficult experience. Having terrible problems getting permission for it at the moment so anyone with 'diplomatic' experience would also be useful. Architectural help would also be great to plot out some potential layouts both for the house extension, garden landscaping and even the overall plot. I have a spare twin room and single room so i am looking for either single girls or boys or two boys or two girls. Would consider more I guess. I like things to be 'eco friendly' wherever possible so some work may involve this area of building things. I am happy to take my helpers around the local area and may consider trips slightly further afield and even a trip in a small aeroplane may be possible. I am easy going (although moody sometimes) and will aim to give you a relaxed (although maybe occasionally hard working) break from studies or work at home. Hours are not always as recommended and if we start a job I would rather not stop and walk away when the daily quota is up. Similarly it may sometimes mean carrying on work on the days off and then taking them a different time if it fits in with what is going on with any of the projects at any time. Don't worry you will not be over worked and most who have assisted want to come back again. Good luck with your search and with your travel experience. Charles
Área: Midi PyreneesI live, with my two teenage children, in one of the most beautiful areas of France, where time has stopped at its best. Mas Sarrat is the ideal place to escape the hassle and frustrations of modern living and get life back into perspective. We are an English family and speak English at home - although we can all speak French! We have a wonderfully varied and exciting lifestyle in our lovely old farmhouse, but there never seems enough time to keep it quite as lovely as I'd like. I'm kept busy working as a part-time chef, translator, looking after my two holiday cottages and being a Mum! I am looking for help in the garden and around the home, throughout the year. From April to the end of September I am looking for help preparing the holiday cottages, hosting clients and children, looking after pets as well as gardening, catering, general sorting and administration help too!
