Area: City of Anchorage, AlaskaLooking for a last minute worker starting August 26th, until September 15th. Responsibilities include tidying up after guests check out and helping around the main house as needed. Work starts usually at 11am and is over usually between 2 and 3pm. The days vary but generally four to six days a week (sometimes less). The rest of the days and afternoons are yours to explore Anchorage and the outdoors. I am active and like to spend my time outdoors. There are a lot of responsibilities that come with having a large home. I work a 9-5 and get up early on weekdays, but Alaska is very fun and beautiful in summer, so I try to take full advantage on the weekends. If I can find someone to share the chore load during the week, it would free up time to enjoy rafting, camping, hiking, cycling, running, kayaking, sailing, traveling, fishing, and exploring on the weekends. Workstayers might want to join me on adventures from time to time, or get out and explore independently - if I need to get out of town for a few days, we can take turns watching the house and taking care of the pets. I have a few loaner bicycles you can use, and would happily buy a variety used equipment for recreational use if you are interested in helping fix them up for the guests. They would be available for everyone to use. The ideal stay is 1-4 months, depending on the relationship we build, and the quality of work, but right now I am looking for a last minute worker for August 26th to September 15

Area: Lower SaxonyHi everyone, we are a family with so far three kids (born 2007, 2009,2012) and a few dogs. A few months ago we came back from our stay in Malaysia (almost 4 years) and we bought an old farm house this year with a 10 000m2 garden in the village side in the north of Germany. Slowly we want to change the place into a self sustainable place to live (in what we understand of permaculture). It starts with fencing, preparing some places for growing vegetables (though we try to give as little impact into nature as possible) as well as wood work inside the house, little bit of painting and renovation. We have build a new trailor when we came to Germany to stay at which needs little more work. Actually we can think of anything when it comes to putting ideas into reality at our place (compost toilet, clay oven, solar cooker, mud house, ...) and we are happy to host people who are interested in trying new things or working on what they have learned somewhere else (so to speak a playground in nature). We are looking for people who are able to do physical work and who like the exchange with others. You dont need to have any skills but be willing to learn and do. We dont want people who want to just sit and eat and try to travel cheap without any interest in really working together! We dont except you to take drugs during the time of stay with us and you must be free from fears against dogs! Staying with us you will have your own room to sleep, sharing the bathroom with us. You can use our internet and our bicycles. We are cooking vegetarian but we dont mind if you eat meat. Just dont expect us to prepare it for you. We are staying around 5km away from the next town for buying groceries and the next bigger city is maybe around 9 km away with even more shops. There is a bus station not to far away on the main road and buses going to the cities few times a day. This area called "Wendland" is very famous for tourism and for the creativity of the people who moved and move here due to the anti - nuclear - movement. Very interesting place with cultural activities, music nights and so on.
