Area: AndaluciaHi I'm Soma, a mother, writer, painter and mountaineer from England, living in the centre of Cazorla, a lively Andalucían town. We're on the edge of the Sierra de Cazorla national park, a spectacular landscape of 2000 metre peaks. We invite you to experience the authentic street culture, cañas and tapas in the old plaza where you can practise your spanish or just people watch, and better still explore the rugged wilderness on our doorstep.
Area: KeralaBackwaters are a network of lakes, canals and estuaries and deltas of forty-four rivers that drain into the Arabian Sea. The backwaters of Kerala are a self supporting eco-system teeming with life. The canals connect the villages together and are still used for local transport. Over 900 km of this labyrinthine water world is navigable. We require the help of Volunteers to organise the cruise, deal with the tourists etc.

Area: Kentish, NOrth West CoastHi we are Wouter and Elyse, Wouter is a CSA organic vegetable farmer coming from Belgium and Elyse is vet from Tasmania We're expecting a baby in a few months and are looking for some help around the place and obviously we like good company We have a block of land on which we are starting up an organic certified farm, with the focus on vegetables, production start within about a year and half. As we have only recently moved in this place there is a fair bit of work in setting up. Elyse grew up around this place and has together with her parents a small herd of milking goats for home use and blackberry control. Living self sustainable has allways been a major part of daily life. Wouter had a succesfull CSA vegetable farm in Belgium (for which this workaway page was use first) feeding more then 600 people for 10 months a year and have quite a few woofers usually. Now we decided to live here in Tasmania and build up a new farm. Lorinna is a pretty amazing part of Tasmamia, it lies at the very top of the Forth river, just out the lake st clair- cradle mountain National Park at lake Cethana, We have a lot of wildlife, beautifull forests, a beautifull lake for swimming and looking at, nice views over the mountains and Cradle Mountain. We live at about little less then an hours drive from Sheffield. Picking up can obviously be arranged. We live off grid, using solar panels for electricity and hot water firewood from our block for cooking, heating and hot water. delicious water from a creek. dry toilet We have an established orchard and a vegetable garden (currently only for home use) we grow some mushrooms. we make a bit of cheese from the goatsmilk and do a few different ferments ( like saurkraut,beer,wine,..) preserve our food all sorts of ways, ... This summer we're doing some renovations on the house, building a cob pizza oven, installing our hydrowheel for electricity and most important, expecting a baby :) Bits and pieces get started on the farm; setting up compost piles for later use in the seedling nursery, taking some trees down for clearing some fencelines, milling trees for building timber, chipping some of those brances for compost use, mowing for clearing and compost use. building some sheds and fences getting the vegetable paddock derocked by machine. building some walls with those rocks ... The current fotos are still from the farm in Belgium
Area: OtagoHi I am a strong believer in family comes first. In my village of Oamaru there are many artistic creative people. It has a working Victorian precinct that is of world heritage with many attractions. My mother and brother's family live here, also my daughter and her children are near by. My retirement dream of a life style farm let with sheep, and extensive grounds tucked into a rural setting make for a quiet setting for an ideal quality home stay environment. Help on a small market garden would be useful as would some house hold duties. I am so proud of this area I have many day trips to showcase out neighbourhood. My main past times are, if not spent with family are playing the sport of lawn bowls and completion bridge. I also like to travel and this has made me aware of all the different cultures.
