Région: Ghour Al-Mazra`aI live in Al Mazra'a located in the south of the Dead Sea in Jordan. There are many beautiful canyons and hot springs to explore nearby and the salty Dead Sea to float in. I am happy to host one volunteer for long tearm in my project in exchange for help planing and site work, designing and implementing a simple permaculture garden at more than 25 schools and improving the initial model . The mission of our NGO is to promote a sustainable environment and economy in the Jordan valley in which both humans and the natural environment flourish. The Center strives to accomplish this mission through the methods of Eco-Tourism by establishing an Eco-Camp for visitors to the area and Ghour al-Mazraa as an Eco-Village for the local residents. Main objectives: 1. Nature conservation 2. Environmental education 3. Intercultural exchange & cross-border meetings 4. Sustainable tourism Objective 1: Nature conservation The center's project is located in a critical area where climate change and environmental pollution are quickly eroding Jordan's landscape, a clear example of humans interfering with the natural cycle, unbalance between the nature, agriculture and industry. Natural areas like the Dead Sea are endangered to disappear – each year its water level looses more than 1 meter. So a nature reserve has to be created to protect this unique region in the Jordan Valley and raise awareness about the environmental threats. There will also be a link to other already existing projects, for example those for the rehabilitation of the Jordan River. Objective 2: Environmental education The Center will be a creative community space that seeks to educate locals and internationals about sustainable living practice, raise awareness about overuse and pollution, teaching easy ways we can all limit our waste. Here will be designed to be a living, working example of practices we should all be using in our homes. Workshops and meetings shall reach youth and adults, projects are planned to be also realised in public places like mosques and schools. Objective 3: Intercultural exchange & cross-border meetings Our Center will be a multicultural meeting point. International volunteers are been given a chance to live in Arabic family to learn about traditions and every day life. Meanwhile, they can teach the family English. Local volunteers can arrange educational tours for travellers and show them their music, life style and dreams. Cross-border meetings could be also possible in a later stage. Water scarcity is a common problem between the Jordan River neighbors. So there have to be common talks between those neighbors. As soon as the local community understands the water problem, they will have the chance to meet with the neighbor countries to find solutions how to use water more wisely – and let everybody use this resource in a fair and sustainable way. Objective 4: Sustainable tourism The Dead Sea area is a main stop for tourists – but there are not many cheap and no eco- friendly accommodation options. The Center will be the unique alternative. It will show the local side to travellers: they can sleep in a traditional mud brick house and Bedouin tents, come in contact with local families, take educational tours, make hiking trips, enjoy evenings with Arabic music and dance and much more – everything with eco-friendly rules. Educational films, presentations, and hands-on recycling workshops will also take place here. Travellers shall benefit from locals, locals from travellers.,,,,,,,,,,,
Région: Isla San Cristóbal, Bocas del ToroGreetings! We have a couple of little lagoon front jungle huts and a jungle house on a piece of land (60 acres) on the beautiful Isla San Cristóbal in the Bocas del Toro area of Panama. We are about a 30 minute ride by boat from the town of Bocas away from all the tourist madness! :) There are loads of things to do and see here including; Kayaking, snorkeling in the clear water, feeding our fish family, coconut hunting, jungle hikes, paddle boarding (SUP), and the list goes on!! We like to attract the adventurous, eco-friendly souls that seek a unique experience in a wild and off the grid environment :) and help us out with our permaculture project.
Région: Southern California (inland not on the coast)I have been a host for over three years. I am a single middle aged yogini with adult children who live outside my home. I have Chloe the cat, five hens and one rooster. I am primarily a vegetarian. I work outside my home 40+ hours a week. I enjoy the company of likeminded people, I love to practice am yoga, gardening, hiking and singing kirtan with friends. I rise early and turn in early. I am a simple person, not a micro manager, nor religious-choosing spirituality instead. I enjoy hosting yoginis, artists and musicians. I would be elated to host a guitarist willing to play music in the shala. my location in east county of San Diego, California, Offers Energy Exchange. Private yoga shala & garden community is seeking a yogini interested in work exchange. Students of a yogic lifestyle and those who are willing to practice, share, experience and grow. This yoga shala & Micro Farm Community is a spiritual community in it’s infancy. The Shala is wonderful, private, quiet & serene, with many trees and plenty of space for your personal practice, service to others and gardening.

Région: BrandenburgLast year we - Marieken and Martin - left Amsterdam where we worked as artists for more than 20 years to realize our dream to live close to nature. We bought a vicarage with a wonderful old fruit orchard and three big barns not far from Berlin. We want to convert this farmyard to offer a new form of holiday in the countryside, where ecological awareness and do it yourself come to the fore. Next to our orchard with many different old apple trees, we started to set up a vegetable garden where our guests can harvest from. In 2015 we will be opened. We don't ask more than 5 hours helping a day. In this time you can achieve something, but there is enough time left to relax. The quietness here is amazing and lets you really come to ease, when you hang around on our 2 ha compound, with gorgeous nature around and in summer there is the possibility of swimming in one of the surrounding lakes. Practical Because we just started we are mainly focussed on the renovation of the houses and barns. So most of the work we need help for is building work. Because many things are much easier with more helping hands, we are happy with anybody who wants to help us. There is much to do, very diverse things, but at the moment most tasks are in the realm of constructing. In spring we will also start in the garden. That means trimming the trees and prepare the garden for planting. "What are your skills?", I used to ask co-helpers to be able to give them suitable work. Today I would ask "what would you like to be able to do?" It's not so important what you already did but what you want to learn. We offer you many opportunities to get to know yourself in a different way: cutting wood, plastering with clay, dug out scrubs, collect cobblestones and piling them, sanding doors etc. We don't want to sugarcoat things, almost all jobs are bodily demanding. That is something you have to like. We ourselves find it very satisfying, when we sit in the evening around the fire with a bottle of beer and we can look at what we achieved during the day.
