Area: Mato Grosso do SulMy partner and I have created an art/cultural space in the small rural town of Miranda in the Pantanal (wetlands) of Brasil. We offer several classes to the community for free such as English, yoga, juggling, magic and world religions. We also paint anamorphic images both in our space and for the municipality. And we have a free cinema where we show films every Saturday night, sometimes the audience is mostly kids, other times not, it depends. If it's adults, we like to show cultural/art films so if you are a cinephile we would love to get your input. Right now we are constructing a yoga studio made out of glass bottles and most of the work has to do with that. One of us is a naturalist and is male so if you are uncomfortable with nudity, it would be difficult for us to host you. We cannot accommodate smokers. We have two cats. Meow. Any questions send us a message. We look forward to hearing from you!
Area: BerlinThe Park of Study and Reflection is located in the High Fläming Nature Park, an hour's drive southwest of Berlin, in the small idyllic village of Schlamau. Here one encounters a vast forest and meadows, inviting for a nature hike. The Schlamau Park of Study and Reflection is one of 30 such parks that exist in all over the world. They are a place for lingering and meeting, and radiate a new spirituality that rejects all forms of violence and discrimination, appealing to the sacred dimension of the human spirit, seeking to discover freedom and meaning. www.parkschlamau.org We are 30 friends from different countries, who bought this piece of land and this farmhouse. We are financing it from our own pockets and with the help of our friends. There is no any institution, organisation or company sponsoring us. The transformation into a real Park of Study and Reflection goes step by step and all the work we do ourselves is voluntary work. Nobody lives there permanently and the project does not include agriculture or animal husbandry
Area: Whangarei, NorthlandDave and I (our sons live in Australia) are new to workaway but in the past have hosted people under a similar scheme. We found this to be very rewarding and enjoyed not only the volunteers and the help we received, but also learning about other cultures. We have a 3 1/2 acre lifestyle block. We currently have on the property 14 chickens and a riding horse named Stella. We also have a dog Ty (who lives inside) and a cat Kashin, so it is important you like animals especially cats and dogs. We would love help with tidying up and maintenance of the property. For example; fence repairs and painting, green house repairs and gardening. We are currently half way through renovating the inside of the house and would appreciate help with this. Other jobs we would enjoy help with is cooking and cleaning. We are situated 6km's from the main centre of town and about 30kms from many beautiful beaches, walkways and parks. As our children no longer live at home we would like to fill our house with fun and laughter again. Come and help us and we will ensure not only that you have an enjoyable stay but you will get to see some of Northlands beauty.
Area: AndaluciaBonjour à tous, Je vis actuellement tout près de Séville avec mes deux chiens et mon chat. J'arrive du Maroc où j'ai vécu 3 mois sur un projet de permaculture, mais avant des Canaries où j'ai vécu 2 ans, encore avant de Grèce où j'ai vécu 5 ans. Sinon je suis française de Corrèze.. J'ai une maison sympa avec un jardin, une piscine et des chambres libres. J'ai l'habitude de recevoir des gens car je fais également partie des congrégations du couchsurfing et du airbnb. Toute nouvelle rencontre permet de faire un pas supplémentaire sur cette montagne de la vie. J'aime apprendre et j'aime transmettre. Nous sommes tous liés par cette évidence et nous devons le respecter .. Quoi dire de plus ? J’adorerais recevoir 3 ou 4 personnes à la fois car plus nous sommes, plus l’expérience est riche mais je ne dispose malheureusement pas assez de moyens pour tous vous nourrir. Mais vous savez quoi ? c'est mon but .. Cela dit, j'espère que ce partage nous laissera mutuellement de très beaux souvenirs et qui sait, de nouvelles amitiés !! A très bientôt ;-) Quelques précisions : Ma maison est située près de Séville mais je vis dans la campagne. Alors même si ce n'est pas très loin de la ville, il faut s'organiser pour s'y rendre. Je suis une rêveuse, écrivain, je n'ai que peu de moyen mais je crois en un monde meilleur où l'entre-aide serait l'ultime solution aux problèmes de société. Si nous réunissons nos efforts, que nous participons à changer les mentalités alors tout devient possible. I have a dream... construire ma propre communauté basée sur les produits bio, l'échange, la spiritualité et le respect de la vie en général. Hello everyone, I currently live close to Seville with my two dogs and my cat. I came from Morocco where I lived three months on a permaculture project, but before the Canary Islands where I lived two years, even before Greece where I lived for five years. Otherwise I am French from Corrèze .. I have a nice house with a garden, a swimming pool and free rooms. I used to get people because I am also a member congregations of couchsurfing and airbnb. Any new meeting can go a step further in this mountain of life. I love learning and I love to pass. We are all bound by this evidence and we must respect it .. What else? I'd love to get 3 or 4 people at one time because the more we are, the more the experience is rich, but I unfortunately doesn't have enough money to feed you all. But you know what , this is my project.. Anyway, I hope this will let us share each other beautiful memories and who knows, new friendships! See you soon;-) Some more details .. My house is located near Seville but I live in the countryside. Even if it is not very far from the city, we must organize to get there. I am a dreamer, a writer, I have little means but I believe in a better world where self-help is the ultimate solution to the problems of society. If we combine our efforts, we participate in changing attitudes then everything becomes possible. I have a dream ... build my own community based on organic products, exchange, spirituality and respect for life in general.
