Area: Languedoc RoussillonWe're a few people living in the Pyrenees mountains (south of france near mediterannée sea), a place isolated from road and town. Our main goal is to restore the potential of the old little village La Coume to allow people to live there. We run different projects: organic gardening, raising animals (chickens, goats, donkeys, horses), rebuilding ruins with old methods, making our own energy. I am looking for people to help me and in exchange I will be happy to give them food, housing, activities happening around in the valley, trekking and exchange knowledge.
Area: GraubündenDear workawayers, First I would thank you very much for all kind requests and all the help received. But please do not ask again for this year, there is no possibility for more workawayers. Hello, I'm Agnes (62 years) and I'm living in the german speaking part of Switzerland in Schiers. It is near Klosters and Davos, a well known part of Switzerland. Here a have a big wooden house with 8 rooms. Since more than a year I have 4 bed& breakfast rooms and it is running quite well. I have the house since 4 years and there is always a lot of work to do around and in the house. For me workaway is a wonderful possibility to know people from everywhere and to have some help, all at the same time. You will have an owen room and you can use other rooms as well. Of course you will receive also free food, I like to cook and I am interested in cooking from other countries as well. The area where I live has a lot of possibilities like hiking, biking, climbing, some lakes. Working time would be 3-4 hours a day. Please feel free to ask me every thing you would know. I'm looking forward to receive your request.
