Area: HawaiiPlease read our profile in its entirety before contacting us for potential vacancies. NOTICE: We give priority to couples or persons traveling together. We have an immediate opening for an individual who is interested in a nanny position for our 15 month old- Assistant Manager- Ava. She is an energetic toddler who is eager to help the qualified volunteer feed the fish, water the plants, and get dirty, on a daily basis. Please have experience with children in this age group! She is a sweet girl, but definitely a handful! You will live and work at a fully operational plant nursery full of palms, gingers, ti leafs, and other popular tropical plants used for landscaping; a wide selection of ornamental orchids; and a large aquaponic system. Our aquaponic grow beds (both float rafts and cinder beds) support a wide variety of edibles, including: Manoa Lettuce, Swiss Chard, Chineese Water Cress, green onion, eggplant, mint, and turmeric, to name a few. We breed beautiful Nile Red Tilapia and our husbandry tanks are located within our aquaponic facility. Please note that we are not a certified organic grower; however, all edibles are grown with organic practices. We expect that all of our staff and volunteers help in all aspects of our operation, not just with the aquaponic system (including helping with the care of our resident Labrador Retrievers- yes this includes cleaning up messes!). We require a maximum of 25 hours of work per week. Days and times to complete these hours are flexible, although we do prefer our workers to adhere to a set schedule (to be determined upon arrival). Requirements: It is beyond the scope of this ad to list all of the specific tasks that will be required of you during your stay at our nursery; however, we hope that you are someone who is a true team player and a quick learner with a modest amount of ingenuity. We are looking for someone who is able to follow instructions and who can work independently when needed. Tasks expected of volunteers, residing here will be targeted towards the daily operation of our nursery and aquaponic gardens. Daily operations include, but are not limited to: propagation of seeds, out-planting of seedlings (into the cinder and float beds), harvesting mature plants, packaging produce for sale (on site), and general maintenance of our aquaponic systems. “Behind the scene” tasks include: washing cinders, net pots, keeping our tool sheds clean and organized, securing the aquaponic area, and caring for fish. Keep in mind that we are a retail location, and someone with experience in sales would fit in well here. We enjoy our “backyard” feel and encourage community involvement, such as attending neighborhood holiday events, joining Hawaii Agriculture and Aquaponic Association for their quarterly functions, and donating to local charities. We encourage our neighbors to embrace aquaponics as a means to a sustainable lifestyle and we encourage collaboration in the farming community in Hawaii. We take volunteers from local high schools and disability centers, providing basic vocational skills to use towards credit for their high school diploma. Vocational training is a major focus here and someone who will be mindful and aware of our population of special needs workers would fit in well on our farm. We are interested in the “farm to table” experience and have plans to expand our services beyond simple produce and provide dining with dishes served from our garden. Hosting a roadside farmers market and participating in the local CSA (Community Support Agriculture) program are a few of our short term goals.
Area: Paris Isle of FranceHi, I’m a photographer and men’s fashion blogger from the US who’s been living in Paris for 30 years now. I did my studies in fine art photography in the US and in comparative literature here. My favorite activities are taking long walks, taking photos, writing, and painting. I love lots of different kinds of music and am always interested in discovering new music. I've calm, easy going, and sociable. I have Wi-Fi. I'm fine with vegetarian meals if you want to cook together and share meal costs. I can't provide the meals. The number of hours of work is calculated for lodging only. The work hours are flexible--there could be days where you work longer and then you'd have more days off or lighter days. Have a good one!
