Région: EnglandWe're a small family based 5 miles out of Glastonbury. In the Village of Lower-Godney, we're on the beautifully idyllic Somerset levels... We're looking for someone like minded to come and work and play with us :) We are Angelina, Bailey and Bobby (Roberta). Coco and Mimi are our cats and soon we'll have 3 hen friends living out back! We're a Vegetarian/non-dairy, non smoking/drugs house hold so would expect anyone coming to stay in our home to respect our choices and to live as we do when you are here. I enjoy an occasional glass of wine or some mead around a fire but nothing too heavy :) We try to live as naturally as we possibly can; Eating organically and locally. Creating our own potions, balms, healthcare, skincare products plus household cleaners. Making the odd item of clothing (when I've the time!) And finding other creative ways to recycle etc We're all a bit musical - My 15 yr old son loves his guitar. Myself my djembe.. And we've a piano available for anyone willing to share a tune with us! As for my 2.5yr old daughter, she's got a song for almost everything - When she's in the mood :) We're all very nice and a bit bonkers when you get to know us. Although we've been in our home a year, we're just establishing our place in the village now as I was unwell for while. Now I'm me again, I'm looking for some friendly help to keep things moving along :) I've got lots of ideas and put great energy into anything I do.. But alas, with a toddler I'm unable to move as quickly as I would like on some levels and so I'm looking for help/assistance over a variety or areas. We're looking for those who can offer help in a few of the areas listed... Not ALL in one visit!
Région: Coastal British ColumbiaWe happily find ourselves on a beautiful remote island off of the coast of British Columbia, Canada where we are entirely off the grid and reached only by boat or floatplane. Here we are stumbling, bumbling, and laughing our way hopefully towards a sustainable community of creative, energetic and hard working family and friends. We currently run a small marina facility as well as a small pub/cafe. Each August we also host a Music Festival which has become a major jam session involving musicians from all over the pacific northwest. With help from all of you we have built two cottages, rebuilt a laundry room, constructed a generator shed/workshop, put in a veggie garden, added a beehive as well as a chicken coop. Workaway helpers have aided in starting a new water system, pouring a cement pad for a treatment room, and helped to maintain our extensive veggie garden. However, we´ve barely scratched the surface. We have a new fresh-water system to finish, three small cabins, another cottage, a community center/pub to build, as well as gardens to expand.......... a small lumber mill?......... bees?...(got the bees)...... goats?............ a sauna?...........a treehouse?.......an art gallery?........ it goes on and on,.... boggles the mind really. Cynthia and myself live here year round and we are joined each summer by a group of new and returning "family members" who come here to the bay and spend a couple of days, weeks, or even months building, clearing, ploughing, and laughing with us. I do not believe now that we could live here without your help and we will look forward to another summer coming that will see us meet new friends and accomplish much together. This years projects include the building of a new cottage, design and installation of a new solar/hydro electrical system, as well as finishing touches to a new fresh water delivery system. This spring we will be needed help with the cottage construction, brush clearing, and the planting of the veggies. Now in late Sept 2013 we could really use a bit of help during October with a micro-hydro installation as well as upgrading our "dam" and some cement laying. Please come on over!

Région: MadridHi, I (Patricia) live with my hunsband (Roberto) and our 11 months old baby (Rober). We´ve traveled through workaway (WE ARE WORKEAYERS as well) and have discovered that it´s a good way to travel,learn new things, and meet interesting people. Nowadays with the baby travelling is more dificult, so we thought that it could be fine to travel at home, I mean, if we can not travel, that trips come to us. Our house is in ILLESCAS, a village close to Madrid and Toledo, just in the middle of them(35km from Madrid and the same to Toledo), so you could visit 2 of the most important citys in Spain. There are several photos about these citys in my profile, they´re nice, aren´t they?.There are some buses (15-20 minutes walking from our house) each 30 minutes to both cities and trips takes 40 minutes. Principally we´re looking for someone more or less as an Au Pair, someone that play with the baby in English and who we can speak in English with as well. She/he would be as other member of our family, so should help to us with the houses routine (simple things as tidy the kitchen after the meals, clean her/his bedroom, ....). So please, we don´t like a cheeky person, I mean, people that think that this is a hotel because in the same way that we´re going to treat you as a friend, we hope that you behave as such. I say that because I had a bad experience in this point and I don´t want that this reapeats again. My hundsband go to Madrid every days, so if you want to do some course in the capital, you could go with him. The baby come back to the nursery around 3.30, so it´s in the afternoon when we need your help. But don´t worry, we´re not strict, if you want to travel some day, or stay in Madrid more time, you´ll be able to. I´m a person very dinamic and love learning things so I´d like to learn whatever you could teach me. Topics I´m interested in are, cooking, economy, sociology, tennis ...... If you think that you could be the person that we´re looking for (you like teaching, like babies, are sociable....), and are interested by known the center of Spain don´t hesitate write us. We prefer native english speakers and if we could visit your area later, it would be really perfect. We don´t smoke neither drink alcohol. If you´re a family similar to ours and are interested by swapping holidays, I mean, you could come to live with us one week and we could go to live with you other week, and so we could know not only one place if not one culture and style of life as well.
Région: Midi PyreneesHi, we are an English / Dutch couple who live the beautiful Dordogne River Valley in Lot, SW France. We have a large gite (holiday home) in the former farmhouse, our own accommodation in the former barn, and grounds, which take up most of our time – together with the management of other gîtes and holiday homes nearby ! We are friendly, and pretty easy to get along with. We are looking for enthusiastic workawayers to help us get the property shipshape for the upcoming season and need more volunteers from 18 April through to the end of May. We have a stone wall to complete, some tiling and sorting out barn and store rooms! The area in which we live is rural, with the nearest market town (bars and restaurants, plus usual amenities) being around 3kms away. One bicycle!! We are close to many of the Plus Beaux Villages de France which are historic and some medieval in origin. The river Dordogne is just fifteen minutes drive from here and is great for canoeing (though not likely to be open unless the river is safe). We will happily take you to see some of these places as they are not to be missed - or you can take the bike or your own transport!! We are in the midst of a farming community and our neighbours are friendly and welcoming for they love their countryside. We have a mixture of friends - French, English, Dutch, American, German, South African and Australian - and meals can be noisy and fun when people drop by........ We are looking for bright volunteers available for a minimum of a week.
