Area: West Sussex, south-east EnglandPLEASE CHECK MY 'CALENDAR' TAB BEFORE EMAILING, AS I DO KEEP IT UP TO DATE! VOLUNTEER NOW REQUIRED FROM 10th/12th MAY FOR 7-14 days DUE TO PREVIOUSLY ARRANGED VOLUNTEER ILLNESS PLEASE NOTE: I am only able to take ONE Workawayer at a time, usually for 1-2 weeks only, as there is not enough work for longer placements. I'm sorry that I cannot accept Workawayers under 18 years of age, either. I am happy to make arrangements for September 2014 onwards, already having enough Workawayers 'booked in' until then! Since a serious road accident left me slightly disabled 8 years ago, I've found it more difficult to keep up with the day to day work in our house and garden. We grow a lot of our own vegetables organically and also have a fruit garden and flower borders- in total about 0.25 hectares . We keep a few chickens and ducks and have a young terrier bitch. My husband works full time locally and I still attend a physical rehabilitation course several mornings a week, so helpers need to feel happy left alone in a rural situation for several hours and must be able to work on their own initiative for some of the time. I mostly require help in the garden and with some jobs around the house, I especially welcome those with an interest in gardening and I am happy to teach them more! We have been hosts of exchanges for 27 years and so are used to welcoming people from other cultures into our home, we also make baskets and have a number of other craft and rural skills that we are happy to share with helpers. We hope that Workawayers will 'live as family' and share meal preparation or washing up in addition to their volunteer hours in the house or garden. We eat a lot of vegetarian meals using our home grown produce, but also eat meat ( usually wild or organic) ; I am happy to cater for special dietary needs if given adequate notice. We usually go to bed around 10pm and are fairly early risers, so prefer helpers who can 'get up and get going' before 9am on the days that they are working!
Area: Río NegroMy friend and I opened a new international backpackers hostel In San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina. There are a total of 7 rooms, with beds, kitchen, pool and place for barbeques. We are looking for travelers, tradespeople and artists that would like to exchange help for accomodation, sahring some meals, etc.. with painting, carpentry, decoration or if you have any skills in particular like business, web design etc.. that help us continue to improve the hostel for the high season. Bariloche is A great place with access to the mountains, snowboarding, etc.., we could discuss what a fair exchange that leaves plenty of free time to enjoy and experience the area and possible future employment depending on the success of the hostel is not out of the question.

Area: Quintana Roo--- Please read the Accommodation section too! It's Important! --- We are avid travelers ourselves. We have cycled from Norway to Spain, we have done a few trips. We hiked to erupting volcanoes, we crashed weddings in various countries. We even traveled with the Workaway format. We LOVED it. Now, we want to do the same, but on the hosting side of the equation. This place is truly paradisiac and we decided to call it home for a while. We are a married couple, Ed is Mexican and Livi is Lithuanian. Been together for ten years. Funny, sarcastic, somewhat sporty, witty (we think). We have used our skills to travel and see the world and we are currently starting a few ventures in the Riviera Maya, Mexico. We have a photography project, we have a property management project... And other things that come up that are compatible with our skill set, such as translations, electrical work, photography, etc. We are looking for people like us: Able to sit down and focus on tasks at hand efficiently and productively but also able and willing to explore and experience the locations in which one finds one self. We have traveled far and well, and we have done it without being rich, using our skills to benefit us and others. So far, so good :)
