Area: Santa Eugenia, MallorcaWe are a family of three kids, two German Shepards, and four cats. My hubby is originally from Wales, while I am from Canada. My children range in age from 18 to 5. Michael is an IT expert with a passion for music. We had a fully operational music studio which was used for Michael's spare time, as we have moved, we are needing to finish the rebuilding of the studio. My oldest daughter is a singer and is as well attending her last year of school. The two youngest are 7 and 5 and generally get up to everything they possibley can!!! Me, I am the facilitator, with the chance to escape once every couple of weeks to let my hair down! We live in a very typical Mallorcean Village with lot's of bars and restaurants near by. There is a bus stop about a block and a half from our house that will take you to the train station in turn to Palma the main city on the island. So you will never feel stranded. We have had visitors from Canada backpacking who have found it very easy to commute from here and enjoyed their time immensely, we have had numerous workaways now and some have thought we were completely off our heads and couldn't wait to return to reality, while others embraced our weirdness and got stuck right in!!!! I look forward to hosting and meeting more people from around the world and introducing them to my slightly zany and wacky family!!!!
Area: UmbriaA warm welcome from Adje to all those people who want to share with me my new life in a more sustainable economy.Three years ago I decided to quit my business in Holland, I had a B&B with an art gallery and a sculture garden, and bought a house in Umbria the green hart of Italy? So I welcome all those who enjoy working indoors and outdoors, in and with nature with a joyfull passion, I love to cook mediteranian and asian kitchen, so if you love food and cooking aswell your just in the right place. At this moment I'am looking for persons who are real good handy man persons who are good in building, painting, carpentry, electricity gardning. And for March 2014 I'am looking for a professional olivetree pruner. I will be starting a self-catering holiday business and I need people to help me prepare the property, building-bricklaying, painting, carpentry work, electricity, general DIY around the house, gardening and ground clearing. I am woman of 62 and live in an apartment upstairs with two further apartments for holiday let planned for downstairs. I have quite a reasonable size garden and a big olive grove of 160 trees (grown organically). My home is situated near the village of Montegiove, Umbria, in a beautiful location. It is located down a short white road off a provincial road where there is a bus service of sorts to the village( 1 klm distance). Helpers will have the use of one of my ground floor apartments (which will need to be cleaned on leaving!)and can live self catering or eat with me whichever you prefer. I like cooking and can cope with vegetarian preferences but more specialised food regimes will need to cater for themselves There is internet access, TV/video and a DVD available for helpers use. Any potential helpers must be animal lovers because I have two little friendly dogs (dachshunds) and a cat.

Area: CanterburyGreeting We are two professional adults who work full time and love our animals. Our 6 acre property has chickens, alpacas, dogs and one blind kuni kuni pig, along with a mini guide pig. We are currently making over the property and establishing an eco friendly environment for ourselves and our animals. We aim to become as self sufficent as possible and enjoy every minute of every day! Come and visit our little slice of farm paradise only minutes from the city.You need to be pretty self-sufficent, love animals and be confident to have a go. Currently we have a large vege garden which need prep for the new plants to go in. We like it when you cook and there is always miles of eggs! Work includes painting, weeding, animal feeding and care. We now have 28 newly laying hens that demand a cuddle and adore attention. We have yet to get the alpacas halti trained. We have miles of spare clothes and gumboots, so not to worry about those things. Please feel most welcome to email at any time. It can be a few days as I email usually from work., Cheers and thanks, Nicky
