Area: rochaWe are 3 young friends, that are planting vegetables to sell in Punta del Diablo during the summer. We have had lots of great workawayers over the few months, with whom we have had lots of fun, learned a lot (German: da ist ein Affe im Baum) and talked rubbish. Unfortunately we are not harvesting any crops but we would still like to have you around! To make this happen, we have to charge a small daily fee (350 pesos) to cover the costs of the house. This means that you don’t need to work. However, between all of us we run the household, including cooking meals and stuff like that. We do all these things together and have a great time doing it! Part of the food comes from a local organic farm or our own garden, so lots of veggies but don’t worry for those of you who like meat, we are Uruguayans at heart and love a good asado. Note that basic food is included in the fee but additional food and drinks (asado, chiken, fish, wine, beer, coke) are split the cost between all of us. And of course, if we find new jobs to do, and you are keen on doing them, you can work for accommodation and food as it used to be.
Area: Bay of PlentyHi & welcome to NZ. We need help year round. We have a 50 acre farm in the middle of NZ's largest Scenic Reserve in the Bay of Plenty Province. The animals here are cattle, some sheep, chickens & 50 sheep/cattle Dogs Organically we keep everything chemical free & grow & preserve some of our own food. We offer food, your own private cottage, 15 minutes of internet daily, a unique real kiwi experience in exchange for 4 hours work daily. For fun there is river kayaking (in summer), glow-worms, trout fishing, river swimming, guitar, music & are ten minutes from some of the best beaches in NZ. Mike is a born & bred kiwi & as true to the country Kiwi way of life you will find. Greta is from Finland. We are planet, environmental & animal friendly. We do cater to vegetarians but we eat our own organic meat.
Area: CaliforniaWe are an easy-going, creative and busy small family living in San Anselmo (Marin County), just outside of San Francisco. My daughter, Leila, is 8 and my son, Sacha, is 17. I am a documentary filmmaker and lived in Europe for several years before settling in the San Francisco Bay Area. We have two friendly cats!
Area: ColoradoWe are a family of four; Billy (papa) Lainey (mama) Bridger (6 yrs) and Heidi (4 yrs). We own a beautiful campground/RV Park/Cabins on the Dolores River in Dolores Colorado. We have owned it for just one year and have been working hard to fix this place up, as it had been neglected for the past several years. We live on-site and consider most of our guests as extended family. We have RV sites, tent sites and cabins. Although we work hard, we try to have lots of fun! We host a weekly ice cream social, cookouts, campfires, etc.
Area: EnglandI live with in a lovely little town called Bruton in the county of Somerset. We are 2.5 hours from London, 2 from Devon and Bath , 1 from Bristol and Exeter.Glastonbury is really close. FANTASTIC transport links including coach, train and bus :) Cosmo goes to a Steiner school close by and there are many alternative minded people here and it is a close knit and supportive community. There are many weekend festivals in the local area over summer. Its a very quiet area so don't expect LOADS to do but if you like hanging in quiet pubs and meeting lovely people with beautiful souls, walking in nature and seeing British rural life with an alternative twist then this is the place :) Our home would suit someone who is self sufficient and loves countryside. If you like to jump on a train and go on adventures, jump on a trampoline or talk Birds of Prey with a 7 year old around the fire then come visit. We love it here and are happy to share our home and our community with anyone who comes to stay :) I cook a hot meal in the evenings and generally expect Workawayers to get their own lunch and breakfast unless I am cooking anyway (i provide all your basic food needs). It is important that you have a reasonable level of English so that you can understand my son :) I ask for 4 ish hours a day depending on what the work is. I am unable to cater for complicated dietary needs. I can provide vegetarian or vegan food but it has proved complicated to cater for raw food diets (that said i am happy to provide money towards you providing your own raw food diet. Wheat free and dairy free are ok. I feel I need to mention that I get many many applicants every week and it is virtually impossible for me to answer them . If I take a month off from workaway generally I get back to it and have 100 / 150 messages to answer ...I'd love to answer every one but I can't ...I don't have the time and I have a life to live ! So apologies in advance for a lack of reply. Please don't take it personally .
