Region: SicilyImportant informations: hosting just on limitated periods, open vacancy: We need a couple of friends/partners/whatever from the 23 of june to the 7 of july (2 weeks) becouse we wiill need to go away for approx 4 days in the middle of that period and we need someone to keep our place alive! (watering the plants, feeding the animals, sunbathing and so on..!) The original arab channel used for irrigation gives the name to our project, it carries water and gives life with it, from it's presence and from it's sound comes out our aim. For us it's a conscious choice of life. Blessed by the welcoming presence of the river and by the changing times of nature. A choice of sharing places and elements. A tiny group of people that looking outside and inside of themselves, choose the land as a space for confrontation. A place for sperimentation between new and old techniques of Permaculture and natural/organic farming. There are moments of hard work, of quietness, heavy summer sweat, soft music and long sleeps. We need Help and we give Help in our everyday life teaching and learning, harvesting and sharing, farming and living. Accomodation is provided in the "Hosts trailer" or in tents. Food is mixed, we're not vegans nor prettly vegetarians,but those of us eating meat, get it just from nearby farmers. Our products are 100% natural/organic but we buy some products that we cannot produce from local market and local producers. Must remind that our project started in June 2011 from an abandoned orange orchard and we're slowly changing it into our little organic paradise..but since we are not a farm and we basically don't make real profit out of our work but just have enough for self consumption (except in orange picking time from beginning of January until end of March when we get some income for our all year surviving and paying the taxes..), we have a shared money box from wich we pay the food we cannot produce, bills and so on, and a small contribution to the common expenses (about 3euro per day) is welcomed. Hopefully one day we won't need it anymore becouse we would be producing so much that we might be self sufficient and using our extra to buy things we can't make. At the moment living here is Salvo, one of the founders wich buy the land and works permanently here, Deina, a thoughtful antropologist with love for the land and our little son Nuri, born in december 2013! Time to time other friends come to stay for a while, help and support our stay..you'll probably meet Sara or Margherita (other co-founders of the project), Pietro our musician, Derek a lovely irish expat, Angelo, Rino, Valentina, Costanza, and many more... Hope to see you soon! It's all about water and leaves. p.s. Other than humans, we live with dogs, cats, chickens, ducks and a horse, so be aware if you have allergies or terrible fears of those above! p.p.s. Specially welcomed experts in building with wood and other natural materials, horse keepers, good cookers, pruning experts and so on. p.p.p.s!! Please bring seeds of your local vegetables and trees if you can to increase the bio-diversity of our place!
Region: Rio de JaneiroWe are a couple with a 3 year old girl living on a rural peaceful sitio in Bicuiba surrounded by a coconut plantation, woodland, meadows and the mountain range towards Rio. We like the easy going of life here. Living here with our dog, wild horses and in the near future sheep and chickens on 20 ha, we can use a helping hand. We like the tranquility of the countryside knowing that shops, restaurants ect. are not that far away. Plenty of opportunities to discover the neighberhood.The sitio is situated in the middle of nowhere but in close proximity (12km) of 2 economic centres: Araruama and Bacaxa, part of the ocean-located Saquarema. A nearby highway (10km) gives easy access to Rio De Janeiro (100km) or Buzios and Cabo Frio (60km).
Region: AlgarveLocated in the beautiful Serra de Monchique. Permaculture farm in development. We are trying to be self supporting. Fruit trees & vegetable garden. Goats and chicken help us and give us eggs, milk & cheese. We are looking for someone who can help us with keeping us alive with: harvesting & milking, cooking, cleaning, cheese making, wine making, jam making, making pies etc. For this we will ask some basic experiences in the kitchen and with animals. And we are looking for someone for the outside work: move goats & chickens, weeding, clearing, cultivating, planting etc. For this work you will need a good physical condition and experience with gardening. We will offer you a nice and reliable place to stay. Living in the farmhouse during the day and sleeping in clean tents under the starry sky.
Region: Veliko Tarnovo/Gorna OryahovitsaWe are a lively and sociable couple who have lived in Bulgaria for over 5 years after emigrating from the UK. We have a 5 acre plot of land that needs work and can offer accommodation to volunteers in a 2 bed roomed self contained bungalow. Or in our own home. Currently we have 2 horses, 2 dogs and 3 cats, some poultry, 2 friendly rabbits plus we do breed pigs and raise them for the table. We now have 2 beautiful goats and hope to produce goats milk and cheeses later in the year after their kids have been born. We need help with some small building and maintenance projects, gardening (organically), tree pruning and animal care etc. During some summer months we could do with some help to harvest produce from the garden and also for haymaking etc. Some larger projects are in the pipelines for 2014 and we'd be very interesting in hosting volunteers with experience in natural building. We can offer archery lessons (traditional English long bows). Please note archery will only be available if we have the time. We enjoy a fairly healthy diet, a good laugh and the occasional beer with wonderful home cooked and produced food. Would you like to learn more about cooking or rural living while helping us a few hours a day in return for board and lodging? I love to cook and try new recipes, we also make jams and preserve foods and brew rakia (Bulgarian Brandy). Please note that we are now NON smokers and eat meat. We try to recycle and re-use what we can and produce as little waste as possible. We are trying hard to use less power, water and packaged products and hope that any volunteers would try and live by the same standards when they are here. Part of our use less lifestyle means we will be reinstating composting toilets and solar showers in 2014. We would prefer volunteers who are able to work on their own initiative and do not need constant supervision. Experienced equestrian volunteers are welcome too as our 2 Bulgarian ponies are still being re-educated for riding using more natural methods. Currently we are looking for motivated, enthusiastic people to come and help with animal care, fencing, building a road and some land clearance. We have lots of plans this year and also hope to build a new pig house and pen, shelter for the horses and who knows what else! Your input, ideas and experiences are welcomed as we try to become more self sufficient and ecologically friendly. Please note we do NOT supply alcohol/tobacco products or luxury items but you may bring/supply your own. We now have broadband and a wifi connection Also available is a 1 acre landshare for those who'd truly like to experience Bulgarian rural life for at least 6 months to a year.
