Area: New York StateGreetings from our organic farming community, located forty five minutes north of Albany in the fertile Battenkill Valley. Our family warmly invites you to experience our unique life of friends and togetherness. We are situated on over one hundred acres of gently rolling hills and lush river bottom land. Growing a wide assortment of vegetables and medicinal herbs for a farm stand and our own community use, heritage breed poultry, milking a small herd of dairy goats, raising sheep and donkeys, maintaining the beautiful grounds of the estate, and operating a cottage industry keep us busy and open for new friends year round. In addition to the normal farm crew and volunteers, we also have a great time doing the "community night" in the field, with everyone coming out for one evening a week to join in the work and reward of getting our hands in the soil. Guests are frequent all year round and we would love to have you join us. Whether you come for a day or come to stay, our hearts and our farm will always have room for more. Update: Spring 2014 Greenhouse harvesting and planting is in full swing. More harvesting than we can keep up with, but the new crew of volunteers has been great and many new friendships being made. Also new goat kids and lamb, as well as many chicks to care for. Plenty of work to keep us busy!
Area: Nord-Trøndelag, middle of NorwayWe are a couple in the beginning of the sixties. Our alternative lifestyle, we have had for 20 to 30 years. We have a great interest in clean food and nutrition and alternative therapies. We are living at a small farm. The farm is 75 acres. No animals. Most of it is forest area, but we have a range of 10 acres where we now are creating an outdoor arena for therapy and teaching, and for the use of natural and cultural based experiences in tourism. The residential house on the farm, is now totaly renovated and we use this for treatment, courses, meetings and accommodation. At the farm there are also two smaller houses, and a boathouse by the waterfront. We place great emphasis on colours and their significance for us humans, and therefore we are in the process of establishing our place (Colour-mound). We will also create an area for vegetables, one with herbs and a place with sow-benches for use in garden therapy (horticultural therapy). Harvesting and drying herbs is also relevant tasks. We are also running a garden, Colour garden, a few miles away from where we live. Here we also need help to keep it in working order. We are working a lot, but we would not ask people to do jobs we would not do ourselves.
Area: AquitaineWe are a couple in our early 30's living in a large house in the Dordogne. We live in a pretty village with a bar/restaurant, shop etc. Our garden backs on to a lovely river and is a relaxing place to stay. We have two dogs (English Setter and Cocker Spaniel) as well as two friendly cats so it would be essential you like animals. We do not have children. We can offer whoever comes to stay their own room and bathroom plus of course food and drink. We would prefer a non smoker as we do not smoke but this is not a deal breaker. We are friendly, outgoing with a great sense of humour.

Area: AndaluciaSince 9 years I am living in this beautiful place in the natural park Sierra de Cazorla y las Villas on a 4 ha finca. It is a center for workshops, ceremonies and retreats and besides that people can rent a holiday house. I have 2 horses, a dog and a few cats. The water comes from the spring and there is solar energy. The nearest village is half an hour by car away. At 15 minutes higher up in the park there is a school and this is also the place where the neighbors of this small community can meet each other in the weekends. The Sierra de Cazorla is the biggest national park in Spain. The highest mountain is about 2000m high. There is lot of wild life to be seen such as deer, mountain goat, eagles and vultures. From the house you can make very nice walks to a waterfall close by and other beautiful spots in the park.
