Area: MunsterHi. I am an artist and art teacher (part time) and my husband manages a charter yacht company. We have two girls, 5 yrs old and 16months. They are lovely easy going little girls, that love 'doing things' (drawing, dancing, singing, watching books... going for walks, swimming, kayaking...). The eldest is going to school up to 1.30 and the youngest goes to creche two ams per week. We live in the south west of Ireland, by the sea. 5mns from kinsale (40mn if walking) and 30mns frm cork. From our house you can see the sea from most of the rooms and there is a lovely beach nearly at the doorstep. Our house faces a small island inhabited by wild goats. In winter it can get quite wild and windy, with glowing lights or dramatic skies, and in summer it sometimes becomes paradise. We are both French and moved to ireland 6 years ago. we like literature,art, music ( piano, guitar and accordion in the house), outdoor life (kayaking/gardening/walks). We are an out going family, but we like our quiet evenings for studying/reading... We do not have tv, only a computer. So great if you are independent to go to the pub and meet people (it is easy in Kinsale, a small village with many nice pubs!!), or love reading by the fireplace... we have plenty of books!!
Area: Nova ScotiaWe are Tyler and Zenovia and we live in one of the many beautiful places of the world. We love to: eat well, ride bikes along our coastal highway, play, eat great food, walk in the woods, work hard in the gardens, eat delicious, fresh foods, have bonfires, listen to music, make fresh juices and superfood smoothies, drink good beer, ferment many ferments, and sleep until the sun rises over the bay. We live in rural, South Shore Nova Scotia overlooking the beautiful St Margarets Bay. Our home is across the road from the ocean and is close to ocean beaches, lakes for swimming, cycling routes and hiking trails. The nearest town is 10 km away and the capital city, Halifax, is a 45 minute drive. We live on 1.5 acres with extensive gardens and we are building a retreat center in health and wellness. On this journey there are many interesting and creative opportunities especially in the realms of gardening and making food to sell at the local farmer's market.

Area: ScotlandHELP NEEDED URGENTLY Dear Workawayer , At present assistants is needed particularly in relation to painting and decorating and cleaning inside and out side areas in preparation for the year a head. This is the annual spring clean. We are a vibrant young family living in the Stunning Highlands of Scotland. Our family consists of Lynsey aged (28) and her two lively little boy’s Ruaridh aged(5) and Euan aged (2). Lynsey is a qualified social worker and has worked in the profession for many years: however last year she made the drastic decision to completely overhaul her lives. It was Lynsey’s desire to be at home with the children and to build an organic eco garden to provide food for the veg box Scheme which she is developing. As a family we are also very passionate about upcycling “rubbish” into useful and decorative item’s which would look apart of any home or garden. We are at the very early stages of a large project and would love to share our excitement and experimentation with others. It is our aim to build a new sustainable future for our small patch of this wonderful planet. We have a keen interest in permiculture and other sustainable living ideas. We would love to have as many as 3 workawaers come stay with us at any one time. We do live in a small crofters cottage but have one spare small single bedroom which will be reserved particularly for young female single travellers. We have two reception rooms, we could accommodate to travellers of the same sex or a couple. This opportunity is very exciting and different but would only suit people who did not mind sharing space with others. Once the project is fully build there will be accommodation built specifically for our visitors. Visitors will also be provide with three hearty meals a day. What we expect from our guests. We do not ask for much but due to having two young children in the family home we ask that all guests refrain from the use of bad language. Do not use mind altering substances and if they choose to drink alcohol that it is in moderation. If our visitor is a smoker we ask that this habit is kept outside the family home. We also ask that visitors assist with house work in order that the family home is kept comfortable for everyone living in it. The Highlands of Scotland is very beautiful and there will be much to see and do, we only ask our visitors to work four days and week and the rest of the time is theirs to do as they wish.
