Area: Gironde. ( Dordogne boarder)Our 37 hectare farm & Vineyard is located on the boarder of three departments (Dordogne, Gironde & Lot et Garonne) We have 11 hectares of vines, Merlot, Cab Sav, Cab Franc, Semillon & Muscadelle which are all in the Bordeaux AOC and we are also in the process of restoring an old Farmhouse and Barn. We are currently in the conversion process to run as an Organic farm. We are David & Amanda (early 40s), Florence 7 & Martha 8. We arrived here in February 2010 and its fair to say that there has never been a dull moment since! The rest of the residents consist of two horses, nine hens, six cats and Sam the dog. Accommodation is in a five birth caravan with awning or you can bring your own tent. We can offer workers a variety of experiences here ranging from all aspects of vineyard work, land management, restoration projects, building work, painting, organic and Biodynamic veg production, gardening, poly tunnel growing, managing the horses and even the odd spot of child minding. There is always a project on the go! We welcome singles, couples and groups (maximum of three people at a time) who are non smokers and who want to get stuck into some hard work. In return we will make sure you enjoy yourself, share good food & wine and experience this wonderful place. Check out our workaway feedback.
Area: County MonaghanWe are artists living and working in the beautiful hills of County Monaghan. We are trying to become more self sufficient in expanding the organic vegetable garden ( we live on a four acre site) and have lots of projects planned including creating a forest garden. We also have outbuildings which we are slowly restoring. The help that we need includes clearing, ongoing jobs in the garden, building work, fencing and the list goes on. We are two and a half miles from the nearest town, which is a busy market town and buses go from there.

Area: AlgarveWe are currently seeking volunteers for the 2013 season. We are keen to hear from people with "Hotel" type skills, cleaning, making beds, tidying the gardens, kitchen help and being part of the welcoming Team for our guests. Our place provides a very different kind of holiday experience for most people. We are not a luxury resort hotel, just a very old farm where we entertain a few guests. We believe that the essence of this place is the feeling of a shared community that develops after a very short time between most of our guests and the Team. The guests and workawayers often eat together, go shopping or take trips together. It is people with the skills to help our guests get the most out of their time that we hope will join us. We have space for two volunteer workers (or a couple plus 1 other) to help with a variety of odd jobs around and looking after our guests. We will be open from April till the end of October. Although around and about at the place clothing is a purely optional accessory, the emphasis is on the word optional, there's never any pressure on guests or workaways who simply feel more comfortable wearing clothes. We do hope that you'll enjoy it too.
