Area: Lower SaxonyMy husband Bernd and I used to have a house full of young people, but now there are lots of empty rooms, since two of our three daughters (17, 24 and 26) have moved out . When I read about volunteering, I was immediately interested. Helping hands are always needed, because besides our usual jobs (as banker and commmercial clerk) we are part-time farmers as well. We live in a small village (maybe 800 inhabitants) near Göttingen, well-known for its university. It it located at the corner of the three areas Lower Saxony, Hessen und Thuringia. Hanover ist about 100 km to the North, Kassel 50 km to the South. The Weser hills, the romantic town of Hann Münden and the Harz are not far.
Area: ScotlandHELP NEEDED URGENTLY Dear Workawayer , At present assistants is needed particularly in relation to painting and decorating and cleaning inside and out side areas in preparation for the year a head. This is the annual spring clean. We are a vibrant young family living in the Stunning Highlands of Scotland. Our family consists of Lynsey aged (28) and her two lively little boy’s Ruaridh aged(5) and Euan aged (2). Lynsey is a qualified social worker and has worked in the profession for many years: however last year she made the drastic decision to completely overhaul her lives. It was Lynsey’s desire to be at home with the children and to build an organic eco garden to provide food for the veg box Scheme which she is developing. As a family we are also very passionate about upcycling “rubbish” into useful and decorative item’s which would look apart of any home or garden. We are at the very early stages of a large project and would love to share our excitement and experimentation with others. It is our aim to build a new sustainable future for our small patch of this wonderful planet. We have a keen interest in permiculture and other sustainable living ideas. We would love to have as many as 3 workawaers come stay with us at any one time. We do live in a small crofters cottage but have one spare small single bedroom which will be reserved particularly for young female single travellers. We have two reception rooms, we could accommodate to travellers of the same sex or a couple. This opportunity is very exciting and different but would only suit people who did not mind sharing space with others. Once the project is fully build there will be accommodation built specifically for our visitors. Visitors will also be provide with three hearty meals a day. What we expect from our guests. We do not ask for much but due to having two young children in the family home we ask that all guests refrain from the use of bad language. Do not use mind altering substances and if they choose to drink alcohol that it is in moderation. If our visitor is a smoker we ask that this habit is kept outside the family home. We also ask that visitors assist with house work in order that the family home is kept comfortable for everyone living in it. The Highlands of Scotland is very beautiful and there will be much to see and do, we only ask our visitors to work four days and week and the rest of the time is theirs to do as they wish.
