Area: EnglandWe have four holiday lets in an acre of award winning gardens located above Pelistry Bay on St Marys, the largest of the Isles of Scilly. We pride ourselves on running an environmentally aware business and have a Gold award from the Green Tourist Business Scheme. (2007 and 2011) We could do with some more help around the place from people who share our vision of maintaining and developing a sustainable and sustaining business/way of living. Ideally, we are looking for a couple or friends who can commit for a month or longer throughout the year. I have lived abroad and travelled extensively in Europe, Asia and Africa and have several years experience as a family host for English language schools. I am committed to providing a positive experience for workawayers and can offer English lessons if required.

Area: Sverige, Värmland, Sunne KommunOur dream: simply good living! Since 2013 we live and work on our farm in beautiful Värmland, in the borderregion between Sweden and Norway. But not only the impressing location on the edge of Finnskogen brought us here, rather our farm is a lifelong self-sustainability-experiment for us! We want to live in and with the nature around us and we want to feel the earth beneath our feet. Here a permaculture-project with animal keeping will be created in the coming few years on approximately 10 acres. The nearby 20-acres forest gives us enough wood for keeping the house warm in winter in a sustainable way and also enough to produce some building material. The Kymsälven flowing over the plot also creates possibilities for the use of renewable energy. Who are we Currently we live as a 3-person-family permanently here on the farm and welcome guests and interested people who want to live and work with us for a few days or for a longer period of time. In addition to our self-sufficiency project we ( Laura 34 , Mark 37) work here as social workers and systemic coaches. Our daughter Nele (3) visits the Swedish kindergarten. We are from Germany and live here since 2013. We speak German , Swedish, English and a little Spanish and French.
