Area: Lower SaxonyThe project is a little three story city house build in the 1920ties. It is located really closed to the main railway and bus station (ZOB). I try to renovate old style, if possible using material from that time. One apartment and the stairway still need a complete renovation. A green roof will top the house with various vegetation. I studied gardening architecture, so there is also a tiny garden with subtropical plants to be taken care of. Aditionally I raise a rare black chicken breed at a place nearby, so egg collectors and chicken raisers are also welcome :))
Area: S W - GersWe are Louisa and Stuart, Harmonie and Phoenix We are a certified organic farm in the Gers, France . We raise a rare breed pig called the Porc Noir, which is a slow growing black pig. We currently have 2 donkeys, 60 pigs and piglets due very soon this month, 20+ chickens ,7 dogs, 2 cats 2 geese, lots of ducks and ducklings, We are located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, only 3.5 km away from 2 little villages with all facilities including lively bar and restaurant, 12 km from market town and 30 km from large town with big commerce. The farmhouse faces the Pyrenees mountains( 1.5 hours away) and is situated in the middle of 120 acres split in 3rds of which is woods/prairie and arable. We are approx 80% self sufficient providing organic food for ourselves and our volunteers from the farm. We transform all our meat ourselves, as well as making pâté and black pudding, saucisson and charcuterie which we sell at markets. We are looking for people to join us with our various projects on the go throughout the year. You will need to have a good level of physical fitness to volunteer here. This is primarily an English speaking environment, although we can speak french it is not often used unless we have French speaking guests. We are open minded and easy going. There is never a dull moment here.

Area: PiedmontI'm living in a flat in a small village centre with two cats, in the Alta Langa hills, Piedmont. I have a busy job so I look for some help to sand and paint my shutters and things like this. I don't have TV and I like reading and listen to music. I'm not strictly vegetarian but I don't usually cook meat in my house.
Area: Languedoc-RoussillonHi all! My name is Eddy. I'm 56 and from Flemish origin, but I live in southern France since 10 years now. My occupation (in the sense of the things I occupy my time with) is a mixture of pilgrim/photographer/musician/nature lover, and I like to bring people together. My place is situated 3,5km outside of the small village of Villardebelle, 35km SE of the historic city of Carcassonne, at an altitude of 712m. Mountainous area, forests, pastures, isolated and very quiet, nearest shops and banks at Limoux (23km), hot springs at Rennes-les-Bains (also 23km), so having your own means of transport is preferable. If you like this sort of quiet hidden places this is the place to be. The energy of the place is introspective and highly transformative, so I turned it into a place of inner transformation, exchange and sharing, which is called the "Pilgrims' Nest", open to all 'pilgrims' on the road, and to all who travel consciously their inner path of evolution. It also welcomes everyone who needs a few days or weeks of rest, reflection and energy recharging, or relaxation in the sense of getting away for a while from stress and a hectic lifestyle, and to release accumulated tensions. You are invited to come and help with the developing of this project. Furthermore there's delicious clear spring water coming out of the taps, electricity is generated by solar panels and a small windmill, and the sun heats up the shower water. Nature as well as I will appreciate it when you bring biodegradable soap or gel, or don't use them at all. There is no public transport to the Nest, so if you don't have your own means of transport you will basically have to hitch hike from Limoux, which usually works out fine.
